live-in carers at home

Personalised, one to one live in carers and companionship in your own home.



A personalised and flexible alternative to residential care. 


A Personalised, Companionable and Covid-Secure Care Option

Live-in Carers stay with you day and night, to provide wrap-around support with meal preparation, companionship, medication and personal care.

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.

Live in carers can help with housekeeping, laundry, cooking, continence care, mobility and more. We work closely with you to decide on the level of care you need, which is entirely flexible. The advantage of a live in carer is that they are there in the day and overnight, so can provide consistent care 24 hours a day.

Our Live-in Carers

At Good Oaks Home Care, we employ and train all of our live in carers ourselves, and are regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), with all of our carers also being Dignity in Care registered, so you can be confident of the highest level of service.

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.

Why Choose Live-in Care?

Live in care can make a real difference to your quality of life and is a great alternative to residential care homes for those who desire more freedom, more choice and a simpler way of living. With live in care, your carer adapts to your lifestyle, so you don’t have to follow a strict schedule or suffer any disruption to your daily routine.

With a live in carer, you can stay in the home you love, keep your pets with you and have friends and family to visit as often as you normally would, with no restrictions and no responsibility on your visitors part to care for you, so you can relax and enjoy their company.

By choosing Good Oaks Home Care as your live in care partner, you’ll receive a fully managed, stress free service. Not only do we find a live in carer for you, but we go beyond the typical agency duties and also arrange their pay, cover for their holidays and handle any concerns you may have. Your care team is much bigger than just the carer you live with, it’s the entire Good Oaks Home Care team!

Who is Live-in Care for?

Live in care is ideal for adults over the age of 18 who want an alternative to a residential care home. Private live in home care allows you to carry on living in the home you love. It provides companionship for the elderly and it enables people with dementia or other medical conditions to live a more comfortable life.

You might require full time live in home care, or just temporary home care after an operation. Whatever you need, our live in carers are here to fit into your lifestyle and meet your specific needs.
