Live In Care – explained by Good Oaks Home Care

Live in care questions answered by Good Oaks

Live in care, when a carer lives with you in your home to provide around the clock care, is a popular option for many of our clients when their care needs increase and become more complex.

A live in carer can help you with every aspect of living in and looking after your home. The tasks undertaken by our live in carers vary widely and are adapted to individual needs.

Live in carers can, for example, help with the following:

  • Live in carers can help with personal care, helping you to get washed and dressed exactly as you like and getting you ready for the day ahead
  • Live in carers will help with medication administration or prompting
  • Our live in carers can help prepare healthy, nutritious meals for you to enjoy, only cooking the food you love to eat
  • Live in carers will help ensure your house stays clean and tidy – and exactly how you like it
  • Some of our clients ask our live in carers to escort them for walks in the local area – or into their local community – which they are more than happy to help with

This list is by no means exhaustive, however. At Good Oaks, we aim to tailor your live in care package to ensure you get the most out of it as possible.

If you need care through the night, or more complex help in the day that involves a hoist, we can also provide additional home carers and night carers to ensure you are being cared for safely and to the very best of our ability.

We find our clients appreciate the personal approach that is at the heart of the live in care that we offer at Good Oaks. You can read some of our client testimonials here.

One of the main advantages of live in care is the enabling relationship that develops between our live in carers and our clients. Living with you in your home, our live in carers get to know you well; your personality, your likes and dislikes, your favourite meals and the way you like your house to be run.
