Live-in care is a personalised and flexible alternative to residential care. Good Oaks live-in carers stay with you at home day and night, often for at least two weeks at a time. The carer can help with the running of the house as much as desired, as well as provide personal care and companionship.
With our help, clients are able to stay in familiar surroundings that they have spent their lives shaping. Our live-in carers adapt and work to support you in your own home, so you can keep your independence and possessions, family and pets around you no matter what your situation.
Good Oaks’ professional live-in carers are experienced, confident, friendly and kind. During the initial assessment, we ask about the sort of person you are looking for, and work hard to find the best match.
Because we’re smaller than most other live-in care providers, you can be sure that your live-in carer will be back after their break, so you can build a proper rapport. Our carers come from a variety of care backgrounds, and are a diverse group, so we can always allocate someone meeting your specific needs.
