New live-in care-giver at Kingsway Care

Graham Robson March 19, 2021

Dee, who has been a Care Giver for more than 20 years, has joined the Kingsway Care team to bring warmth and joy to clients in Sussex.

What is Live-in Care?

Live-in care enables you to stay in your own home rather than move into a residential care home.

Live-in care is when a professional Care Giver, such as Dee, lives in a client’s home to enable their needs to be met. This means they’re available to help throughout the day and at night, if necessary. Some Care Givers live in all the time, while others work a rota pattern of, for example, two weeks on, two weeks off.

Live-in care is an increasingly popular alternative to moving into a care home. It enables you to stay in your own home and meet your changing needs. For some people it offers a way of continuing to live as independently as possible at home, in their local community. Kingsway Care wants to help you to stay in your own home and can help you find the right Live-in Care Giver for you.

Who might be suited to Live-in Care?

Live-in care might suit you if you need help with:

  • Companionship
  • Personal care, such as washing and dressing
  • Taking medication
  • Cooking
  • Housework
  • Support to manage the risks and safety in the home
  • Caring for a pet
  • Trips out, such as to the doctor or hairdresser or just for fun
  • Continuing to enjoy lifelong hobbies.

Live-in care is also attractive to people who may become confused by a new environment and find it difficult to adapt to change. This particularly applies to people living with dementia where continuity, routine and familiar surroundings are very reassuring and improve quality of life. Live-in care also provides the supervision that someone living with dementia might need to keep them safe.

You may decide, that you only need a live-in carer for a short time, perhaps if you’re recovering from an illness, accident or an operation.

Advantages of Live-in Care

Live-in care gives you the peace of mind that someone is available to help you if there’s a problem. Live-in care also offers companionship, reducing the risk of you feeling isolated and lonely. A professional Care Giver can also support you in your interests and hobbies, encouraging you to continue with them wherever possible. This can have positive effects on confidence, happiness, independence, wellbeing and quality of life.
