Our practical knowledge tells us that having independence and options is critical to keep up both health and happiness.
Live-in care preserves that independence provides the choice to live in accustomed surroundings and permits you to live your life the way you wish. Using the continual support of the live-in care worker, staying at home is the ideal alternative toa residential care home.

Live-in care reduces the feelings of being isolated and of being lonely by providing companionship. A live-in care worker can strongly encourage and support the continued activities of interests and hobbies. Live-in care, being at home and a feeling of continued independence has a positive effect on individual happiness, dignity, confidence and well- being.
A live-in care worker can help care for a pet that could otherwise ought to be rehoused.
A live-in carer means that a family member does not need to become a full -time care worker. Family members can be assured their loved one is getting the most beneficial care.
If travel is still a possibility, then a full -time carer could accompany a client on a break.
Live-in carers will be matched up according to expertise and experience meaning they're specially trained to manage and support Parkinson's Disease, dementia, strokes, MS or those requiring palliative care.
For couples, a live-in care worker is capable of supporting both and allows couples to remain together. If one care worker can support both people, this also has a financial advantage compared to two sets of fees in a residential care home. This is especially beneficial if one particular person has dementia or needs additional support that would mean living in separate residential care homes.
The Disadvantages of Having a Live-in Care Worker
Except In Cases Where utilising an professional company such as Total Living Care, finding the right care worker, who is properly trained and understands what's needed to deliver exceptional live-in care, could be a challenge.
A lot of people enjoy the social life of being in a residential care home, the relief of not having to manage their own house or responsibility of controlling their affairs. Letting go of some of their privacy, but taking pleasure in the opportunity to be constantly in contact with others.
While a live-in carer cost is often less than the price ofa residential home, it is not cheap to have care workers accessible 24- hours a day, on the other hand, depending on eligibility, personal budgets and direct payments mean it is possible for care to be state funded.
A live-in care worker will require a private room within the home
Not everyone is comfortable with having a unfamiliar person residing in the house or perhaps they are used to living by themselves. Although in our experience, the care worker before long becomes a companion rather than a stranger, plus the support and help soon outweigh the wish to live on your own, or perhaps the alternative of the residential home.
Care workers require breaks and holidays and spend time with their own families, unless going through a company that offers a completely managed service, such as Total Living Care, it may be a issue to find short- term cover.
