What is live-in care?
A professionally trained carer lives with you in your own home to provide full-time care whenever you need it. Live-in care is a wonderful, welcome alternative to residential care. No upheaval, no disruption and allows you to be independent, stay close to friends, keep pets and maintain all your hobbies.
Live-in care usually includes personal care, (washing, dressing, supporting morning and night-time routines), supervision of medication, helping with jobs around the house, cleaning, cooking and of course companionship.
With live-in care, a compassionate TrinityCarer will move into your home to provide you with round the clock assistance whenever you need it. Using our Matchcare Program, we carefully select a carer who will suit your personality and lifestyle so you develop a personal bond.
Our Trinity live-in home care service ensures that we are fully responsible for every aspect of your care. This applies from the very outset of our home care service, firstly assessing your needs, then creating your bespoke care plan and providing all the ongoing support you require in between. If anything changes over time, we will be there every step of the way.
The perfect live-in carer for your needs
We know that everyone is different. That’s why we ensure that you or loved one will be matched with the perfect carer for them using our CareMatch Programme. We prioritise matching clients with carers that have the best experience for your unique needs, as well as similar interests, suitable cooking skills, and, of course, the right personality.

Understanding live-in care
In the initial stages of our live-in care service, a friendly member of our team will carry out a care needs assessment and listen carefully to your needs. This gives us an insight into all of your requirements. We then use our specially designed CareMatch programme to introduce you to the right live-in carer who is employed directly through us.
We CareMatch you to a live-in carer and conduct regular supervisions and reviews to ensure you have the care you need. You will also have a dedicated care manager and full-time support from our care management team for any additional support. With Trinity’s live-in care service, our team is here to support your life’s journey in every way that we can.
Reviews from our clients
Excellent rating from 180+ reviews on Google Reviews, NHS Choices and Working Feedback
The cost of a live-in carer will vary according to your circumstances, but with a budget of around £1,200 per week, remaining at home is a cost-effective solution compared to a care home. Also, if you’re a couple looking for care, sharing the attention of a live-in carer makes perfect financial sense.
Although the TrinityCarer lives in your home, they are not expected to care 24 hours a day. A typical day will be broken into contact/work time and non- contact/downtime, based around your daily routines and preferences. On average a TrinityCarer may typically work 8-10 hours a day.
With our live-in care service, you benefit from our 20 years experience in the care sector. Our live-in care is a bespoke service, completely tailored to your needs. You also have the full confidence and knowledge that we are fully regulated and regularly inspected and rated ‘Outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission.
You’ll need a suitable, furnished, warm, secure, and private room for your carer to live with you. Your carer may spend their downtime in their room; so it is nice for them to have furnishings such as a comfortable bed, bedside table, chest of drawers, wardrobe, desk and television where possible.
Yes, our carers are happy to shop for your food and cook all your favourite, nutritious meals throughout the day. This will provide you with the fuel you need to make the most of your day.
A short-term (or respite live-in care placement) may be arranged for a number of weeks and is beneficial when returning home from hospital after an operation or recovering from illness, or to cover an extended break from your regular caregiver. Given that the placement for a short-term live-in care arrangement is for a number of weeks, it’s likely that you’ll have the same live-in care assistant for the duration of your care.
As always, we would provide a comprehensive assessment of your needs so we can walk into your home and take full responsibility for the tasks your carer does on a daily basis.
Ongoing conditions such as dementia, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s bring their own challenges, but no matter what your circumstance, the heartfelt care of a live-in carer enables you and your loved ones to access an enriched quality of life. A live-in carer’s full-time support enables you to discover a new way to explore life’s adventures.
Research shows that after a stay in hospital, people recuperating at home recover far quicker than if they were to remain in hospital. Our home is the environment we feel most comfortable in, meaning we’re more relaxed with more chance of rest, everything at-hand, and the people we love close by to help with a smooth recovery.
Some of our live-in carers are drivers and will be happy to drive you wherever you need to go. If you wish your live-in carer to use your car, you’ll need to arrange for them to be insured at your own cost.
The great advantage of live-in care is that it provides a highly flexible service around the changing needs and routines of an individual. Live-in care works best when there is good, regular communication between everyone.
The idea of inviting a stranger to live with you or your loved one at home may feel like a daunting prospect, but a live-in carer sensitively and seamlessly supports the lifestyle and routines in your home with minimal disruption.
We will introduce you to a selection of live-in carers and they will be able to offer their advice and guidance about which carer would be the best match for you. Sharing your home with a carer can be a daunting prospect, so selecting a carer should be more than a box-ticking exercise. Your care provider should judge a potential carer’s compatibility by matching not only their specialist training and experience but also their personalities and preferences.
