What Is Live In Care?

Live-in Care is the complete alternative to residential care when you are in need of care and support for more than a few hours a day. When it becomes necessary to have someone present in your home throughout the day and night to provide the reassurance and care that you may need.

Live-in care is provided for individuals who need help throughout the day and sometimes at night. 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. Live-in carers will live their lives alongside their clients in their homes and will be on hand to assist with every area of everyday life.

Some people are in need of one-to-one long-term medical care on a permanent basis if they are suffering from a life-limiting or terminal illness. On the other hand, some people call on us for short-term care after an operation or for respite care.

Live In Care Tailored To The Needs Of Your Loved Ones

Here at Consultus, we have dedicated Carers located across Scotland who can provide professional one-to-one care for you or your loved one, all in the comfort of your own home. Our Live-in Care service allows those suffering from conditions such as Dementia, Parkinson’s and other life-limiting illnesses to stay at home in familiar surroundings and comfort, rather than moving to a care home. 

The cost of Live-in Care is often comparable to the cost of a good care home in Scotland, especially if it is for a couple, and has so many benefits and an overall higher quality of care. With Live-in Care, we can provide you with an individually tailored service to meet your specific care needs to ensure you get the best care possible.

Our approach to matching carers to clients is consultative and sets us apart from other home care providers in Scotland and nursing homes. We take great care in placing carers with our clients based on their personality, likes and dislikes and interests so your loved one will feel comfortable being cared for and sharing their home with their chosen Carer.

Our Other Care Services

In addition to our standard Live-in Care service, we also offer a range of specialist Live-in Care and Nursing services to ensure we are continuing to meet the needs of our clients. These include Planned Respite Care, Rehabilitation Care and Palliative Care. 

While many elderly people receive care from family members and loved ones in their own homes, it can be extremely demanding on the family member providing care. This is why at Consultus, we provide a planned respite care service to allow those who provide care for a family member to have a break, ensuring they do not become overworked. 

Our rehabilitation nurses have the knowledge and experience to provide patient care for those recovering from all types of surgery. Having a nurse provide Live-in Care can help prevent any postoperative complications and infections. In addition, it can also help reduce the likelihood of readmission with professional nursing care by your side.

Palliative care involves the treatment, care and support of those with a life-limiting illness, such as advanced cancer, motor neuron disease (MND) and dementia. It can also be known as ‘supportive care’ and aims in providing care and support to allow you to have the best quality of life possible as well as being as active as possible in the time you have left. 

About Our Carers In Scotland

Our dedicated Live-in Carers will provide you with domestic support, assistance with personal care and offer you companionship and emotional support, all in the comfort of your home. We will introduce a Live-in Carer to you who stays with you in your home and provides a bespoke 24-hour care service.

The ‘job description’ of our carers is often very different from client to client, as we understand that everyone is different and has their own needs, likes and dislikes and preferences. This is why we strive to provide our clients with a level of care that is tailored to their specific situations and needs. 

Part of a Live-in Carer’s role is to help with cooking and preparing meals. We understand that many of our clients in Scotland will appreciate a Scottish menu, including Scottish Salmon, Shortbread, Porridge, and possibly Haggis.
