Keeping it Surrey: Why Live-in Care is Thriving in Our Neighbourhoods

Across the country, and particularly in affluent areas like Surrey, there’s a rising trend – the increasing popularity of live-in care. But what exactly is live-in care, and why are residents of Walton-on-Thames, Weybridge, Cobham, Esher, Thames Ditton, Kingston upon Thames, and New Malden embracing it?

Live-in care allows individuals to receive personalised care and support in the comfort of their own homes. A qualified carer moves in with the client, providing assistance with daily living tasks like medication management, personal hygiene, meal preparation, and light housekeeping. This approach offers a stark contrast to traditional care homes, and the benefits are numerous.

Firstly, live-in care prioritizes familiarity and comfort. Statistics show that older people thrive in familiar surroundings [1]. A 2021 study by the King’s Fund revealed that 90% of older adults in England want to remain in their own homes for as long as possible [1]. Live-in care respects this desire, allowing residents of Surrey to stay in the houses they’ve built memories in, surrounded by cherished belongings and loved ones who can visit freely.

Secondly, live-in care offers a more personalised approach to care. Unlike care homes where routines are often standardised, live-in carers can tailor their support to the individual’s specific needs and preferences. This ensures a higher quality of life and greater dignity for the person receiving care.

Thirdly, live-in care fosters companionship and social interaction. Carers aren’t just there for practical assistance; they can also provide much-needed emotional support and conversation. This can significantly reduce feelings of loneliness and isolation, common issues faced by elderly individuals.

So, if you’re considering care options for yourself or a loved one in Surrey, it’s definitely worth exploring live-in care.
