Live in Care – an Overview
When a caregiver lives in their client’s home 24 hours a day, this is known as live in care. It is a useful way of ensuring that their client’s needs are constantly met day or night without the need to go into a nursing home or residential care.
Live in care in Surrey gives young adults or older people the chance to stay in their own home, living independently with 24-hour care available from a friendly and trained professional who can offer all the essential support they require.
One further advantage that this live in care service offers is reliability and continuity in the care given. With a single carer living with the client around the clock, strong friendships become an essential element of this service.
The live in care service that we supply boosts the number of benefits when compared to hourly care at home or relocation to residential care facilities. At home care allows loved ones to go on living the lifestyle that they know and understand in the surroundings which they find most comfortable. This is something which holds importance for all older people but particularly those suffering from dementia.
The 24-hour care at home that Safehands provides will always be tailored uniquely around the individual needs and requirements of the family. Each care plan is created around your desired outcomes and daily routines.
We have a local care management team who manage quality and support local live in care. This sets up apart from most other UK care providers. This team also visit every week to make certain that the carer and the client are both happy with the arrangements.
Live in care is an extremely cost-effective solution. Residential care homes are often costly, especially for couples as nursing homes require each partner to pay for their own bed.
Clients Who Currently Have Visiting Care On An Hourly Basis
Clients Currently Receiving Hourly Visiting Care
Many families who use social services or a care agency to provide domiciliary care for their loved one eventually conclude that live in care is a more cost-effective option. When there is a need for several carer visits per day, this leads not only to higher overall costs but also less continuity of care since several carers become involved.
With our UK live in care service, not only will you find the cost of care cheaper, particularly if sleepover care at night is necessary, but you’ll also appreciate the care continuity that comes with having just two carers on board who rotate on a regular basis.
Home Care Provision for Couples
Live in care in Surrey is ideal for the elderly couples, whether both partners need extra help or only one partner requires assistance. This live in service helps elderly couples to reduce care cost when compared to the expense of residential care, couples must pay for each partner to have a bed in a residential home, whereas only a single carer payment is necessary. This helps them to carry on living together in the comfort of their familiar home setting with the assurance that a trained carer is available whenever necessary to offer personal care, medication assistance and domestic support.
Caring For Patients After Their Hospital Discharge
Hospitals cannot discharge a patient without suitable care being put into place that guarantees their safety. Our Surrey live in care staff can ensure that older people are able to return home after being discharged from hospital in a managed way. A full assessment of needs while in hospital and at home will be carried out and the team will also liaise with the family and healthcare staff to ensure a smooth transition.
Specialist Care Provision
Elderly people with Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s or other complex problems or which need more specialist support to take their medication on a regular basis, finding a full time carer who can provide live in care is often a better alternative to moving into institutional facilities or nursing homes. With 24-hour care at home, a dedicated carer can bring more continuity of provision while the delivery of care is more personal and a stronger relationship with the client can be established.
Preventing Elderly Falls
Senior citizens are at a high risk of falls which may end up causing them to be admitted to hospital. When there is a professional live in carer in Surrey on hand, however, this possibility can be prevented, allowing older people to continue living safely in their home. Live in carers can also raise the alert if their client does fall and needs urgent help, and this can prevent the need for a hospital admission.
