Don't Just Take Our Word For It

Hear what our customers have to say
I arranged a live in carer for my 95 year old friend. Easter 2020 my friend was taken ill and had to go into hospital. It became apparent that she could no longer look after herself. Social services arranged for her to go into a care home. She was not happy in the care home and wanted to come home. After a lot of searching I found the company Safehands. Our friend owns her own house and has always lived on her own. Since July 2020 she has had a live in carer who has become a friend and companion. The care costs no more than the care home she was in. She has 1 – 1 care 24/7 365 days a year. She is happy and content in her own home. Would definitely recommend Safehands.
Safehands carers and support staff have enabled my father to live well during the development of his dementia for over five years. The carers have lived beside him, considering and understanding not only his health needs but his overall wellbeing. They have been dedicated, kind, compassionate, intelligent and skilled in their care. They have enabled my father to find happiness in his challenges. Exceptional, committed carers, reassuring all the family before and during this difficult time. Thank you Safehands.
Having tried three different care agencies before finding Safehands – I would easily say it’s the best live-in care we’ve had for my elderly mother. The carers are hardworking, honest, respectful, tolerant and they really take good care of my mother. Her nutritional needs are met with good food and the house kept clean and organised. I could not recommend this agency and their staff any more highly! Five star!

Live In Care vs Residential Care Homes

Live In Care Services

Live In Care is one of the most cost-effective care provision methods in the care industry as it provides complete solutions to the problem of care for older people at an affordable cost and equally offers lots of flexibility.

The 24-hour care cost of Live-In care through a private care provision service is estimated at an average of 699GBP weekly. At Safehands Live In Care, we do not just deploy a carer to your place of abode; instead, they are appropriately paired according to your custom needs and requirements. All Safehands carers are highly trained, and professional caregivers with substantial levels of experience in the industry, and they are in the best position to provide your elderly one with the care that they truly need.

With Live In care, your elderly one remains in their home and comfortable space, and they remain a part of their community while receiving adequate care and companionship.

Although with this model, they are still responsible for their living costs and even need to ensure that their properties are adequately maintained in addition to the private live-in care that they receive.

Residential Care homes

 Traditional home care has been around for decades past and was the accepted practice for quite some time, but this method proves to be unnecessarily expensive and in the long run quite detrimental to the health of an older person.

This model involves the administration of specified care packages at predetermined time intervals during which a carer visits your loved one to complete their tasks. Carers who work in this model are unable to provide 24-hour care services to the elderly ones.  Although this model also gets the job done, it defeats the purpose of the endeavor, which is to provide adequate care to a loved one. The care at home costs for an average elderly individual are quite expensive and given that it doesn’t offer a lasting solution, might not be worth passing other care methods over.

It is common knowledge that one of the essential features of the care industry is companionship and you would be surprised at how many more years are added to the life of your elderly one when they are paired with the appropriate companion. The absence of companionship leaves your elderly loved one with the risk of sustaining fatal injuries and in dire need of special attention, especially in cases of patients who have dementia, Alzheimer’s, and other age-related diseases.
