So What is Live-in Care?
The term live-in care denotes the scenario where care takes place at home on a live-in basis. Instead of visits from agency workers or social services, live-in carers live together with the client and are therefore on hand 24/7 to deal with all care needs. This offers the great benefit that the client can retain control of the house whilst receiving care.
Live in Care and Normal care, The Differences
Live-in care’s point of differentiation is that it provides care at home to a client on a 24-hour basis. Normal care is periodical and therefore, it is inherently more sporadic due to its infrequent nature. Live in care instead provides care spontaneity which helps combat loneliness. Since 24-hour carers spend a lot of time with the client, they can build relationships which can prove invaluable to the wellbeing of the client.
Safehands also place great emphasis on the initial care assessment which sets out healthcare goals and expectations. We can work with those who need standard levels of personal care or much more advanced, intense or demanding care schedules. Since we operate from local offices, we also perform spot checks to check things ranging from whether medication is being delivered on time and personal or specialist care.
Since live-in care provides care at home, the costs of paying for a residentially rented room in a care home is circumvented. This means that live-in care is great value given the extra benefits it confers to the client.
