Regulated and inspected by the Care Quality Commission
The CQC monitors and inspects regulated care services to ensure that the service provided meets certain standards in five key areas; whether the service is Safe, Well-led, Responsive, Caring and Effective.
Care shaped around you and your routines
Good person-centred care should adapt to fit in around your life, needs, and wishes. Care in your home offers the opportunity to continue living life the way you want; doing things you want, how you want, when you want.
Employed, trained and managed care professionals
Managed live-in care providers organise experienced professionals who are vetted, trained and competency assessed before they step foot in your home. The provider is responsible for managing these professionals, organising holiday cover, running payroll, and providing further training and ongoing support.
No need for a big distruptive move
Although having a live-in care professional staying with you at home can be an adjustment, not needing to go through the stress and strain of a disruptive move at a key point in your life can help you to remain independent.
Regularly reviewed and monitored care plans
A managed live-in care service will undertake a thorough consultation with you to create a detailed and bespoke plan of how your care professional will support you. This plan will be regularly monitored and updated as we learn more about you or if your needs change.
Ability to keep your pets and belongings with you
Pets and belongings can be a huge part of your life. From the piano you can’t be parted with, to your cat who has been with you through hard times and good, they can shape our identity and give our lives meaning. Managed live-in care recognises and honours the importance of the emotional connections that sustain us.
Client and care professional matching service
Having someone else temporarily live with you can be daunting, but knowing a little more about this person, and the shared interests and personality traits can help. GoodOaks live-in care professionals are matched to clients with a bespoke process that looks at the hobbies, backgrounds, experience and traits that make people who they are.
Stay in the comfort of your own home
When you are not feeling well, being in a familiar environment can be a source of comfort and stability, helping to reduce stress and anxiety. Being able to control your living space and maintaining your privacy helps to maintain your sense of dignity and agency in the face of challenges you face.
Number of different carers per week
The best care is provided by professionals who have built a deep, lasting and enabling relationship with their client. Live-in care professionals have the time and space to properly understand their client’s needs and wishes, and can proactively make sure their needs are being met.
Estimated cost per week of equivalent services
Costs can vary widely. Having one-to-one care at home is equivalent to the very best care homes, who can afford to pay for better staffing ratios and have the time and culture to spend time with their clients, which unfortunately can be prohibitively expensive and difficult to find. Introductory agencies have less overheads as they have less onerous quality assurance and safety checks due to being unregulated and not an employer, but not always.

Joan’s case study
“If we had not had the care provided by GoodOaks, my mother would not be able to continue living independently at home.”
“We are now 4 months into Amy being at home with Mum and it’s honestly been such a life changing experience. Not only for mum, but for the whole family. We now sleep at night with peace of mind knowing that mum is well cared for by someone who knows her and is supporting her living at home, just where she wants to be. We can now enjoy the time we get with mum and spend quality time with her when we visit, rather than combining company and trying to do the laundry or cleaning – This is all now taken care of and we couldn’t be happier”.
Joan had been admitted to St Richard’s Hospital after her family had raised concerns about her health. Whilst they had been doing their best to visit her at home to help with the day-to-day tasks such as washing up and laundry, they had missed some signs of malnourishment which led to her being admitted to hospital for treatment.
Joan had been living with dementia for the past couple of years and had recently been forgetting to eat and drink which had gone unnoticed and had subsequently made her quite unwell. Her family had previously looked at local care homes as an option for Joan but between them, they all felt uneasy about moving her away from the familiar surroundings of her home, her memories, or having to overturn her daily routine. They felt lost about what to do next and how to get the appropriate help in place for her until they stumbled across an article in the local magazine for live-in care. They hadn’t realised live-in care was an option and almost immediately knew this could potentially be the best possible route for her care at home.
Jackie, Registered Manager, arranged a visit at the hospital with Joan and her family in person. She found out a little background about her and her life, her routine and how she had been since her diagnosis. Jackie also gathered information on her current health and detailed the care that could be put in place for her when she got home.
When Joan returned home, a second visit was carried out, this time it included additional risk assessments to ensure her safety and wellbeing, before a full care plan was written. All of this was agreed step by step with Joan and her family, so that everyone was clear and involved in the process.
After speaking with Joan and finding out more about the qualities she would like in her care professional, the live-in care coordinator, knew exactly who would be a match. She sent over a profile for Amy, who not only had experience in dementia care, but also loved jigsaws – One of Joan’s favourite things to do!
