Live In Care
Care in your own home
For many of us our home is full of treasured memories, where we watched our family grow up, where we lived for many years. So the thought of ever leaving can be worrying, particularly when faced with reduced independence.With Deluxe Homecare’s live in care service, a Nurse, Healthcare Assistant or Support Worker can move in to your home with you to provide a bespoke care service, supporting you to remain independent in the comfort of your own home.
Whether you have complex nursing care needs or just require some support in doing everyday tasks, we can provide a service tailored to your needs.
Peace of mind
Our live in care service gives your family & friends peace of mind knowing that you are benefiting from the expert care of skilled healthcare professionals, in the place where you are most comfortable. Choosing how to handle the care of a loved one in their later years is a difficult decision. You want to do what’s best for your family. There is no right or wrong, every family’s situation is different. For many people, Live in Care is a much better option than a Care Home. We are happy to talk you through your options to help you choose the best route.
Unlike a care home where many individuals have to be considered, live in care is a personal one-to-one service that is tailored to the needs of each individual. A flexible care service is provided, accommodating your regular routine and specific needs, as well as adapting to your changing circumstances.
We understand that having someone share your home can be a very personal matter. For this reason, we take extra care to match our staff sympathetically with your situation and personality, as well as your clinical needs. We also ensure that all of our live in care staff are fully briefed on your expectations and personal preferences.
Why Choose Live In Care?
Our live in care service offers you a high level of flexibility, from simple things such as choosing your meals and watching your favourite programmes on television, through to having the freedom to be active each day knowing there is someone there to support your care requirements.
These may seem simple requests, but such things can have a profound effect on an individual’s well being. The benefits of allowing someone to retain their individuality and independence throughout illness should not be overlooked; this is particularly true for dementia conditions where maintaining continuity and familiarity of routine is especially important.
There are many ways in which our live in care service can benefit you:
- Enables you to remain living in your own home
- Allows you to continue living your chosen lifestyle
- Comparable cost to many care homes
- One-to-one care, providing you with greater flexibility & personalisation
- Continuity of care from a small number of Carers, selected to match your requirements
- Available on a short or long-term basis, often at very short notice.
Our live in care service is based on you and your Carer being able to have a good night sleep. Should you need support throughout the night, your Carer can be called upon up to three times. For those whose needs during the night are more complex, we offer a 24 hour care service; this is explained in more detail below.
Continuity of care is one of the key strengths of our homecare service. This is achieved by minimising the number of Carers assigned to each care package. As part of our live in care service, we will provide you with two, and in some cases three, suitable Carers to work on a rota basis. Whilst our rotas are tailored to suit your requirements, many timetables follow a fortnightly rotation.
