01 What is live-in care?

Live-in care is a type of home care service. A care assistant will live in the home with you or your loved one to provide full-time bespoke care and support.

Live-in care offers many benefits, particularly when compared to other services such as care homes. If you or your loved one needs full-time support, a live-in carer can support with everything from cooking and home help, to respectful personal care and specialist care for a variety of conditions. For many people, the bespoke and dedicated support of live-in care enables them to continue living safely, confidently and independently at home, surrounded by familiar comforts and routines.
