Live in care is a truly great alternative to residential care. It allows elderly people to get the support they need in the comfort of
their own homes. Live in care allows your loved ones to remain independent and mobile, maintain hobbies, keep pets and to stay in a familiar environment. Very often it means them staying close to family members and friends.

Studies have shown residents in nursing homes only get between 2 and 3 hours one to one contact in a 24 hour period and often have several different carers looking after them over a month. With Live In Care one to one contact is much higher and with the high level of continuity, also allows the person being cared for to build up a deep relationship with the Carer who is looking after them.

Live in care varies from client to client and depends upon their level of need but essentially it means that a Carer or team of carers will live with the person needing care in their home and provide round-the-clock care.

Live in care usually includes personal care, (like washing, dressing and supporting morning and night time routines), supervision of medication, helping with odd jobs around the house, cleaning, cooking and of course companionship. Carers may also take care recipients to the shops or help support getting them to and from medical or hospital appointments. Because on Home Care Direct you are dealing directly with the carer and not with an agency, costs are significantly lower and in many cases can compare favorably with the total costs of a nursing home.
