What, Though, is Our Live In Care Service?
Often referred to as 24-hour care at home, live in care involves a trained and experienced carer living in the home of the client to help ensure their day to day needs are met. If required, it means the client has on-hand support whenever necessary, whether it’s day, emergencies and when support is required at night.
Live in care in Cambridgeshire has grown in popularity in recent years as a viable option instead of living in care homes. Clients can live in the home they’re familiar with, while having their changing needs met.
Elderly couples and individuals have a chance to remain living with independence at their home with 24-hour home care, knowing they have a trained carer available to provide 24-hour, care, whatever it may entail.
There is an assurance for the client that they will receive ongoing care as their caregiver is always present and ready to assist when support is required, emphasising the friendship and companionship aspect of our service.
How Does Live In Care Differ From Other Services?
Compared to the traditional residential care home service or on-the-hour care at home, live in care has several benefits. It gives your loved one the chance to continue with living in the comfort of their own home, lifestyle and being in an environment they’re used to, while getting the support they need. Something that’s important for people suffering from dementia and other chronic and degenerative conditions.
Specifically, bespoke to the needs of your family, the 24 care at home we offer follows a developed care plan that takes into consideration the outcomes you are looking to achieve as well as your day to day routine.
Compared to other UK care providers, our own live in care in Cambridgeshire service is quality assured, supported and managed from local offices, not a national central point. As part of that, we have a management team who perform visits offering support to carer and clients and to make sure all is well with their arrangement.
In comparison to residential care homes, live in care in Cambridgeshire as offered by us is more cost effective. This is especially true for any couples that use our service, as they would normally be paying for the use of two beds at a nursing or care home.
Cambridgeshire live in care, as offered by us, may be used in the following situation:
To Help With Falls Prevention
Falls are one of the most common reasons for admissions to hospitals and ill health in the elderly. The risk of falls can be lessened with a fully trained and attentive live in carer in Cambridgeshire present to make sure an individual is safe. In the event of an emergency if a client suffers from a fall and needs medical care urgently, a carer who lives with the client will be there to contact the necessary first response team, which could prevent a more serious consequence.
When Clients Have Specialist Care Needs
Live in care in England could be a more effective and appropriate form of care compared to domiciliary or hourly visit care in the case of clients who are suffering from more intensive medical conditions such as Parkinson’s or dementia or require specialist support on a medical level. In these situations, it’s also a better option than a nursing or care home. A true continuity of care is offered by 24-hour care in your home with a fully dedicated carer living alongside you and means a more customised delivery of care as well as stronger carer and client relationships can be achieved.
After Hospital Discharge
In some cases when a client is being discharged from hospital, they might need to have adequate care package in place, that makes their home safe for them to return. With the Cambridgeshire live in care team, we can help clients to return to their own home after a spell in hospital in a managed way, and we can help by discussing the situation with the healthcare professionals at the hospital and assessing the unique needs you have at home and hospital.
Better Option for Couples Who Need Home Care
Elderly couples can benefit from live in care in Cambridgeshire, if one or both need support. It helps with the morale and relationship of a couple, as they can stay together in a place, they are both comfortable and familiar with. The live-in carer we provide will be there to help them with their day to day care needs. It’s also worth noting that compared to residential care for couples, live in care is significantly cheaper.
Elderly Clients Who Already Receive Hourly Visit Care
In situations where a family is receiving what is commonly known as domiciliary care or hourly visit care from social services or an independent care agency to look for other options. We at Safehands can offer different care packages depending on the client’s care needs.
Care in your own home is one of the main benefits of 24-hour care, especially if there is an exceptionally high number of visits required daily. UK live in service providers like us offer clients the advantage of having one-to-one care from professional carers working on a four weekly rota basis, to help foster stronger carer and client relationships and a very real continuity of care. When the carer needs a break, we do provide a temporary carer who will cover while the main carer is away.
