If your loved one had reached the point at which they are beginning to struggle to complete day-to-day tasks, a full time carer may be just what they need. The majority of elder people would prefer to stay in the comfort of their own home for as long as possible, maintaining a sense of independence and also avoid having to move or downsize into one of the care homes in Shirley. If your elderly relative would prefer to stay in their own home, live in care in Shirley may be for them.
We work across Shirley ensuring that our clients get a care package that suits them and is tailored to their every need. Your loved one can remain in familiar surroundings whilst also giving you peace of mind knowing that your loved one is receiving 24/7 care and companionship.
What is live-in care?
With this package your loved one will remain in their own home, and a dedicated carer will move in to support them. Depending on your needs, your personal carer will undertake a range of tasks in order to assist you or your relative with both personal care and managing the house.
This may include helping you into and out of bed, to wash, dress and get to the toilet as well as helping with housework and assisting you with any routines that you might have. We will undertake other things such as shopping, laundry and cooking your favourite meals and most important of all, providing companionship and support to live as independently as possible for as long as possible.
Many companion care workers also have a full driving licence, therefore can assist with taking you to and from appointments or any events you may wish to attend. This can help to maintain an active, independent and sociable lifestyle.
If you or your elderly relative has pets they are no longer able to care for alone, then most personal carers will be more than happy to offer support here too.
What are the advantages over residential care homes?
Receiving live in care at home has many pros over a residential care home. Not only can you remain in your own home, surrounded by your own possessions and memories, but you will also have the reassurance of seeing a familiar face every day and one to one care, which is simply not available in a residential care home.
Our staff usually work in pairs, rotating in a two-week shift schedule which means you will only ever have one of two friendly and familiar faces around. This is especially crucial for a patient in need of dementia care, who can become confused and anxious when faced with communal living and unfamiliar faces.
With Live in care type of support, you will receive the undivided individual attention that is needed. Whilst in a care home staff try their best to divide their time between patients, they are often too stretched to give each and every patient the one-to-one support that they need and deserve. With live-in care, both the carer and your loved one will spend time together and often build up a deep bond of trust and friendship.
