What is Live-In Care?

Live-In-Care is a fantastic option for those who need support 24/7 but wish to remain in their own homes! The decision to move from home and be cared for elsewhere can be overwhelming whether it is made by family/friends or by you. People who have lived in their own homes for so many years, have created so many memories there, moving out can be more of a disruption than a benefit. Live-In-Care can provide you the support you need from the comfort of your own home. It promotes independent living and a holistic approach surrounding all your needs, routines and wishes.

Care & Carers: Our Live-In Care

At Care & Carers we always pride ourselves in providing the best service possible. Our pool of Live-in-Carers are vetted properly and supported throughout the time that they are with clients to ensure they can support our clients who need live in care properly. You will have regular support and communication from the admin team where needed, who can be reached 24/7 and are ready to support. Our Live-in-Carers have also access to our 24/7 support to ensure they can continue working safely.

We offer a free discussion and assessment for you to get to know us! During the assessments we will find out what is important to you and your family so we can offer you a person-centred approach and ensure all your requirements are met. Each client will have their own bespoke pricing that will take all factors into account.

We pre-organise meetings with any potential live-in carer to ensure they are the right fit giving yourself and family a chance to ask them any questions! You will also be able to communicate with us via our state of the art award winning mobile app, Careberry, which allows you to manage your medication with or without support from our live-in-carer, read any report that our carer writes about your care and provide us feedback as and when required about the care that you are receiving from our live-in-carer.
