Here are just six key benefits of care received in the home environment compared to care received in a care home:
- Personalised Care: Home care allows for a more personalised approach to care. A care plan can be tailored to meet the specific needs and preferences of the individual, which can result in a more effective and satisfactory care experience.
- Familiarity and Comfort: Home care allows the individual to remain in their own familiar environment. This can provide comfort, security, and a sense of control that is not always possible in a care home.
- Increased Independence: Home care allows individuals to maintain their independence and autonomy for as long as possible. It enables them to continue with their daily routines and activities in the comfort of their own home, which can help boost their overall wellbeing.
- Enhanced Quality of Life: Home care promotes social interaction, emotional support, and personal attention, which can enhance an individual’s quality of life. It can also help to prevent loneliness and social isolation, which can be a significant issue for many older adults.
- Cost-Effective: Home care is generally more cost-effective than care homes, especially for individuals who only require assistance with certain tasks or have a low level of care needs. It can also reduce the need for expensive hospital visits or readmissions.
- Greater Flexibility: Home care can be more flexible in terms of scheduling and timing of care. This can be particularly useful for individuals who require assistance with specific tasks or need care during specific times of the day.
Care received in the home environment can offer a more personalised, familiar, independent, and cost-effective care experience. It can also enhance an individual’s quality of life and provide greater flexibility in terms of scheduling and care options.
Live-in care is a cost-effective alternative to residential care that allows you to maintain independence and control at home. It offers people the opportunity to build a closer relationship with one carer and to receive around-the-clock support from a trained professional that knows your routines as well as you do.
Once you get in touch with us and tell us a little bit more about the level of care you or your loved one require, we’ll put together an initial assessment and give you some idea of what level of support we think you’ll need and how much it might cost. From there, we’ll sit down with you for a face-to-face chat and we’ll get to know you and your circumstances a little better. We’ll use these initial conversations with you to build a profile of the kind of live-in carer that suits you and your family. We’ll then present you with a few options and together we’ll choose a live-in carer based on their experience, qualifications, character, and skills.
We’ll then place the live-in carer in your home and the care service will begin. We’ll fully manage things after that, dealing with the carer’s pay and holiday and following up with spot-checks, performance reviews and any extra training that’s required.
All live-in care starts with a conversation so that we can get to know more about you and your unique circumstances. Get in touch now with a member of our live-in care team and let us help you with the planning and cost of live-in care at home.
