We have carers who are familiar to the area and are happy to travel to look after you or your family member.
For over 50 years, our family-run business has been growing in strength, providing live-in carers to look after the elderly and vulnerable in the comfort of their own home. In fact, no matter where you are in the UK, we can provide you with a professional carer.
Live-in care means your carer will share your home round-the-clock and support your needs with tailored care, as required. You might be an elderly person who just needs a little extra help with practical items like washing, travel requirements, shopping and looking after your daily household chores. Some people call on us for short-term care after an operation or for respite care. We also provide specialist care for families who need one-to-one long-term medical care after a chronic illness or terminal diagnosis.
- Nobody wants to be displaced into the unfamiliar and potentially stressful environment of a care home. We take pride in enabling our clients to remain in their own homes and enjoy the familiar surroundings and independence that comes with this.
- Our experienced, live-in nurses can provide comprehensive palliative and end-of-life support in your own home, ensuring your needs are clinically assessed and treated immediately as symptoms appear.
- Home nursing helps to prevent post-operative complications and infections. It can often mean an earlier discharge from hospital and reduce the likelihood of re-admission.
Since we were founded in 1962, our vision is ‘people feel better at home’. Unlike residential care or a nursing home, you’ll be able to carry on life as comfortably as possible. Having all the benefits of an experienced carer in your own home and with 100% attention on you or your family member. This service gives complete peace of mind to the entire family; we believe this is the best solution for your care needs.
Our Care Consultants, who grew up in the area, are familiar with the surroundings and have a good understanding of the healthcare professionals, services and infrastructure. Drawing from their experience they will match a suitable carer to your requirements.
Care at Home - Introductory live-in care model
For over 50 years, our successful self-employed model, Care at Home has been keeping the elderly safe and comfortable in their own homes. Our Care Consultants will introduce you to a self-employed carer who has been hand-picked by our team of consultants based on their relative healthcare experience and personal life skills. Many of our carers continue their training in our award-winning training centre which enhances their knowledge and understanding of the vital role of a live-in carer.
How do you choose a carer for me?
Firstly, we listen – to your concerns, needs and preferences. Then we’ll talk through your options and answer any questions. We will review our available carers, matching their experience, expertise and personal likes and dislikes against your own, to ensure the best fit for your home and requirements.
The costs of live-in care
Every day we surprise clients with how affordable and cost-effective live-in care can be. There appears to be an opinion that live-in care is expensive and beyond a lot of people's reach. Our prices are transparent, we do not have any hidden costs. Live-in care is particularly cost effective for couples, meaning they can continue living together in their cherished homes - another benefit of live-in care.
The biggest benefits of live-in care are those that money can’t buy: security in your own home, familiar surroundings, privacy, autonomy and independence, which provides the family with peace of mind.
