Read on to learn more about who live-in care is best suited for:
Those Already Receiving Hourly Care
Hourly care is a standard or common form of home care. Usually involving hour visits carried out either by social services or care workers, hourly care involves regular visits, often by different carers. The costs of this can rise sharply, primarily due to the fact that multiple carers operate multiple visits from different agencies. Here, in this particular scenario, 24-hour care at home can actually result as more cost-effective. Also, given its added benefits, it becomes a much better option for home care on balance.
Our 24-hour care service usually uses 2 carers who operate in four-week rotas. So, the main carer will spend four weeks with the client and the cover carer will take over for a week or two. This allows the client to build long-term relationships and familiarity with the carers.
Home instead care for Couples
Live-in care in Somerset with Safehands suits couples very well. Firstly, residential care for couples can be steep due to the fact that you’ll have to pay for a double room and two sets of care routines. 24-hour care at home represents better value and given the crucial benefit that home-care takes place at home in the property the couple is familiar with, it represents a much better option than residential care.

Senior Fall Prevention
Falls are a regular cause of hospital admission and are best avoided at all costs. Falls can have many impacts and can intensify existing health problems or create new ones. 24-hour care helps mitigate the chance of falls.
