This extra assistance in their home means they can continue to live safely at home and enjoy their everyday activities. Having a Mumby’s live-in carer offers continued independence for your loved one and complete peace of mind for you and your family. There will always be someone there able to help out, prevent accidents or be on-hand should your loved one fall ill.

Live-in Care is a popular care option for anyone who wishes to receive the care and support they need to remain independent in their own home.

Situations for live-in care include:

• When round the clock care or assistance with daily activities such as bathing, dressing, toileting and feeding is needed to continue to live well at home

Viable Alternative
To a Care Home

Our live-in care support is an affordable alternative to a nursing or care home.

If living independently has become unsafe, is challenging or isolating then it may be time to consider a live-in carer. It is the perfect solution for those who wish to remain in the comfort of their own home where they are relaxed and can live independently. We encourage choice and respect the dignity of our clients, whilst being on hand to offer high-level professional support. Having care provided in your own home enables safety, feeling in control and above all remaining in a homely environment. Live-in carers work to the schedule of your home and understand the nature of the role. Support is provided for you and your carer with our phone line in operation 24/7.

The Live-in Care Hub’s latest research concludes that the UK’s institutionalised approach to elderly care is broken. The Covid pandemic has exposed the weaknesses in the care-home model by way of risks to residents’ health and safety, unavailable basic freedoms and a lack of truly personalised care.

Of Live-in Care

Live-in care brings many additional benefits than just the practicalities. A live-in carer will become a friend who offers emotional support and who really thinks about what your loved one enjoys and helps make this happen. It could be preparing a favourite dish that your loved one hasn’t had for a long time, taking them out to choose things themselves, visiting new places, escorting to social events, helping with a puzzle or playing games, reading aloud together, playing and listening to music or watching TV together. Our warm carers build a wonderful relationship with your loved one and often are thought of as part of your family.

As well as remaining in the comfort of your own home, the family home is kept as an appreciating asset.
