What is live in care?

Live in care offers stability & normality whilst living in the comfort of your own home. Ensuring that you have the care and support you would expect to receive in a residential care home. 

Given the choice, many would prefer to stay in familiar surroundings, however most are not sure whether they will receive the quality of care expected in a residential care home. As a result, when faced with the deicsion of deciding – there is a tendancy to automatically think care homes are the most suited option for this, or your only option. 

Rest assured, our carers are trained to equally high standards as the carers in a care home and what better surroundings to be cared for than in your own home. You will receive “one to one” care and the flexibility to choose when you eat, what food enjoy and also continue your normal routine, keeping you as independent as possible with the level of support you need.

Live in Care – Quality at home, across England UK

Live-In care ensures that you live the life you want, on your own terms. By communicating with you and taking into consideration your situation, we will put together a unique package that will give you or your loved one the support you need from one of our specialised carers. Together we will help you stay in a home you know and love.

Why Is Live In Care Different?

Moving into a new premise can be a stressful process for the ablest of people. With this, residential care moves are equally as stressfuly, along with the set routines such as eating, visiting times, and other restrictions. These set guidelines cause a huge strain & disruption to a person’s life and well-being. 

Live in care means that you are able to keep the same daily routines that you are used to, as well as allowing your friends and family to visit you as before. With a spare room in your home, your carer is able to “live in” and offer companionship and care and give real peace of mind and added quality of life.

Not all home care providers offer a regulated service, but we ensure that we manage your care and have been doing so successfully for over 25 years.

Why Might Live In Care Suit You?

Live in care may suit you for many different reasons, and meet your needs such as;

Personal Care
(such as washing, dressing & cooking)
Taking Medication
House Work
Trips Out
(such as doctors visits)
Caring For Pets

This option would prove valuable to those who have recently been discharged from hospital, or finding it hard to adjust to day to day life as before. Also, this option may prove viable to those suffering from dementia, as they will need consistent help for everyday tasks. Whilst still benefiting from familiar surroundings, this can prolong their quality of life.

What Do Live In Carers Do?

A live-in carer’s job is to take care of the tasks that you are now unable to do, which might be things like cooking meals, running errands and completing household chores. They make it possible to keep an individual’s independence, by being there with a helping hand and helping with isolation and loneliness that can come with ageing.

We will assess the tasks and the amount of support that your carer will undertake at your initial free home care assessment. When we will be able to discover the things that are important to you on a personal level, your likes and dislikes, and ensure the most vital aspect of care is met, that we find a good match with you and your carers.

Care That’s Built Around You

At Dove, we understand the important of independence. This is why our carers are here to step in, giving you that extra support required, whilst at the same time promoting said independence. 

The main differences between live in care & residential care is simple; you have complete choice over the options you choose to do on a daily basis. Your home care is flexible, complimenting your needs, whilst adjusting how much you take on as your needs alter. We tailor your care plan & make sure it suits you, whether that be more support or less.

Personalised Support

Medication Support – both administering or prompting, depending on your requirements.
Personal Care – assistance with washing and dressing while maintaining your dignity.
Companionship – carers will become more like a friend or a companion who will give you love, laughter and company whilst always maintaining professional boundaries.
