The benefits of live-in care services
Live-in care provides you or your loved one with the opportunity to stay in familiar home surroundings for as long as possible. Many of our Clients have strong ties with their community in Reading & Wokingham and are able to remain living at home with the help and support of a full-time CareGiver.
Live-in care allows for one-to-one support, from help with general household tasks, to professional personal care and hygiene services. This tailored level of care allows our Clients to continue living at home and remain independent.
In addition to the flexibility of agreed work, our Clients benefit from the reassurance that there is another person in the house. Private live-in Carers are available to assist in case of an emergency or any unforeseen need. This reassurance is often a key factor in giving our Clients the confidence to continue living in their own homes in Reading & Wokingham.
We understand that there is never an easy time to be faced with the decision to move out of your home. Older people and vulnerable people of all ages, may not want to uproot into an unfamiliar care home setting. Live-in care or one of our 24-hour care at home packages offer a practical alternative.
FAQs about our live-in care services
What does full-time homecare involve?
Live-in care can take several forms but in essence, one of our Reading & Wokingham-based Carers takes up residence in your own home and provides you with care whilst living with you.
Live-in care allows you to continue living in the comfort of your own home with a CareGiver available to assist you with your usual daily routine. With a live-in CareGiver, you will also have a trusted, friendly face to share hobbies and activities with. Many of our Clients spend time with their Carer outside of the home to enjoy an ice cream by the River Thames at Henley or other community-based activities.
Our live-in care services in Reading & Wokingham are a real alternative to moving into a care home. Full-time homecare can provide you with the care and support you need to remain independent at home.
Why choose live-in care over residential care?
The primary benefit of live-in care is that our Clients are able to continue living at home in Reading & Wokingham. Staying in their own home can offer a vital level of familiarity, particularly for those living with dementia or a condition that can cause confusion.
What’s more, live-in care enables our local CareGivers to build a relationship with their Client. Your CareGiver will work closely with you to understand your routine and needs and you will benefit from the reassurance that there is another person in the house who will be able to assist you with care and household tasks.
What’s the difference between live-in care and 24-hour care at home?
Live-in care is where a CareGiver lives with you in your own home. Your live-in CareGiver will support you with your daily routine, which may include helping you to get washed and dressed, preparing meals, accompanying you out in the community and general housekeeping. Your live-in CareGiver will have breaks during the day to relax and enjoy some free time and will go to sleep during the evening. For Clients who need regular care during the night, or require someone on hand at all times, a team of Carers can provide around-the-clock support so families have peace of mind that their loved one’s needs are taken care of 24-hours a day.
How much does a live-in carer cost?
The cost of our homecare is calculated based on each Client’s individual needs. In some circumstances Local Authorities can help to pay for live-in care. Take a look at Wokingham Borough Council, or Reading Borough Council’s website for more information.
We are often asked whether live-in homecare is cheaper than a nursing home or assisted living. Live-in care is a cost-effective alternative to a residential care home. Your live-in CareGiver will take up residence in your home for an agreed period and the cost will vary depending on the types of care you require.
