Why live-in care is a great alternative to a care home
Live-in care offers many advantages over residential care homes.
As you get older, we know how important it is for you to maintain your independence and to keep enjoying the things you have always done.
With Trinity live-in care you can stay in your own home spending your time doing the things you love instead of having to do the mundane everyday chores that life requires! A TrinityCarer can offer an extra set of hands around the house, assist you with gardening or cooking, help you with personal tasks like bathing and dressing and drive you to appointments, social engagements… and more!
A TrinityCarer lives with you in your own home so that you have round the clock support how and when you need it. Having a TrinityCarer is an excellent, cost effective alternative to a care home or other residential accommodation.
We carefully match clients to carers with our exclusive MatchCare service and provide a bespoke Trinity Care Profile tailored specifically to you. This plan takes into account the client’s needs, routine, personality, social preferences, medical needs and favourite activities. We simply make home life easier, safer and more enjoyable.
At Trinity we are able to offer care for a wide range of personal requirements, conditions and circumstances. Whether you want companionship and some help around your home; more specialised care for conditions such as dementia or Parkinson’s; or if your family carer simply wants a holiday… whatever you require, your needs are at the very heart of our service!
In a recent poll 97% of people stated that they would prefer to remain in their own home than move into a residential care home. Live-in care enables just that. There are many situations where live-in care may be suitable whether you require companionship, assistance with personal care or have more intensive needs which require specialist care.
“We know that most people want to live in their own homes, amongst family, friends and community for as long as possible. Live-in homecare offers people the real option of doing just that.”
Bridget Warr, chief executive, UKHCA
The beauty of live-in care is that it is tailored specifically to the individual so you really get a bespoke service. Before commencing any care we would visit you in your home to understand your needs in more detail and understand the types of duties that a live-in carer could assist you with.
