What is Live-in and 24 Hour Home Care?

Care at home to support you with your day-to-day needs.

People often ask us ‘what is live-in care’, or we didn't realise this service was available? Put simply, live-in care is where a qualified carer moves into your home with you, to support you or your loved one with specific day-to-day needs. Care 1st Homecare provides live-in care across the South West, from Wiltshire, Warwickshire, Gloucestershire, Berkshire and throughout the surrounding areas. A live-in carer is both a companion and friend, committed to helping you to remain healthy, happy, contented and independent around-the-clock in the comfort of your own home. All that your carer needs is a small bedroom so that they can have a space of their own, when you or they need a little privacy. Your carer will be on hand daily to support you as you need and wish, from helping you with personal care, shopping, cooking and cleaning to simply just watching your favourite programme together over a cup of tea, or taking you to your local parish service, or community group.

What if my loved one doesn’t recognise that they need a little more support?

Care 1st Homecare recognise that many families have to make tough and distressing choices about their loved ones' care, when it starts to become obvious that a little more support may be needed; that’s where we can help. Often, the person that needs additional support doesn’t recognise that their needs have changed, they can be frightened, resistant and incredibly daunted at the prospect of additional support. Our care managers are incredibly compassionate and recognise that it can be terrifying for your loved one to acknowledge that they may require a little (or a lot) more help. From the initial meeting they’ll work with you as a family to reassure your loved one that a carer can be a valuable companion. Someone who can help them to remain in the place where they are comfortable, where their memories are, and most importantly where they’ve lived with their husband or wife and may have raised their family.

You can feel confident and reassured that our experienced and compassionate live-in team have been providing quality, 24/7 home care for nearly twenty years. Our family owned and run home care service is regulated by the CQC, and we work tirelessly with our families to ensure that they have the ongoing support - when they need it most, to make sure things run smoothly, from the initial conversation through to providing full-time, 24/7 day-to-day support.

Here at Care 1st we provide live-in care across the South West, from Wiltshire, Warwickshire, Gloucestershire, Berkshire and the surrounding areas. We’re on hand to listen to your home care needs and to talk you through your options. Call us today on 0117 968 4809 or request a callback and we’ll call you.
