Live In Care Essex FAQ

When pairing a Live-in Carer with one of our clients, we consider their individual needs, preferences, concerns, and personality through a series of relevant questions. This allows us to match you with a carer whose experience and expertise works with your care needs as well as their likes and dislikes to ensure they are the best fit for you and your needs. 

If you require support with more advanced medical conditions then we would recommend booking a Consultus Live-in Nurse. 

Carers provide different levels of support, depending on the client’s needs, priorities and preferences. This can include personal care, such as helping with dressing, washing and grooming, general housework, such as shopping, cooking and cleaning, Assisting with mobility, such as transferring from bed to chair, and providing companionship and emotional support.

On average our Live-in Carers work seven days a week for two weeks at a time. While they do not have specified hours of work, Carers do require 8 hours for sleep every 24 hours. In addition, where possible a Carer should be given two hours off each day, preferably as a single break. 

Yes, a Live-in Carer will require their own bedroom while they stay with you. A Carer must have their own space where they can relax and sleep while they are not working.
