Choosing a live in care provider

We know how much home means to people, and how being in a familiar setting enhances quality of life. We are committed to delivering high-quality live in care that enables people to live safely and independently in the comfort of their own surroundings. Safehands are fully regulated by the CQC which gives our clients the comfort of knowing their care staff are trusted professionals.

Live in care explained
Who would benefit from live in care?
Live-in care suits people who want to continue living in the safety and security of their home.

Many families assume that care homes are the only option when a loved one starts needing an increasing level of support. But live-in care is rapidly becoming the preferred choice for those who are reluctant to leave the comfort and familiarity of home, and it avoids the disruption that comes with moving into a care home.

It also allows individuals to live by a schedule that suits them rather than following a timetable of meals and activities set in a care home.

What is live in care?

This is when a fully-trained carer lives with you in your home – with their own room where they stay overnight - so that support is always on hand. They combine clinical knowledge with carrying out every day home tasks.

How does live in care work?

You are usually assigned two carers who take turns to live in their own room in your home on a two-week rotation. They carry out a variety of duties, such as providing thorough medical and personal care, managing medications, and providing valued companionship.

How do we match you with a live in carer?

We understand that finding someone who is a good match for you or your loved one is important, both for the sake of their care and their wellbeing. As well as having the relevant skills and training to meet your care and support needs, we will work to ensure the live-in carer shares common ground with you or your family so that they are a valued asset to your homelife.

What are the benefits of 24-hour care?

It can be tough weighing up your options, but increasingly people are choosing live-in carers over relocating to a residential nursing home. Live-in care can be particularly cost effective for couples who are both living at home as there is only a small fee to cover care for a second person. It is also a popular choice with those requiring 24-hour care.

What services are included with live-in care?

Our professional carers are trained in medications management and will monitor and identify any changes in a person’s health so it can be quickly investigated and avoid hospital admissions.

They are also on hand to help with washing and dressing, preparing all meals, and keeping the home tidy. They will ensure easy access around the house, and even plan activities such as local walks, visits to community groups, socialising with friends.

Is live in care right for me?

Whether someone requires permanent 24-hour assistance or short-term respite, Safehands carers are expertly trained to manage a range of medical conditions.

We provide respite care to give a family carer a much-needed rest, short-term care following an illness, and end of life palliative care. We also provide complex care for conditions such as Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis and dementia. Often live-in care is a life-enhancing option for people as they get older even if they have no major health conditions, as it allows a person to continue living an independent life in their own home.
