What is live-in care?

Live-In care allows people to live happily at home, retaining their independence whilst receiving the care that they need. For many people, their home is where memories are created, friends and family belong, and laughter never ends.

Unlike other care settings, live-in care allows carers to have the time to build a relationship with the person they are caring for, maintaining a high standard of one-to-one, outstanding support. Live-In care entails an experienced carer staying in the home of a client, learning about their wants, needs, passions, hobbies, and interests.
