We know that arranging Live-in Care gives everyone in a family, true peace of mind. Our families feel safe and are secure in the knowledge that parent's and loved ones are cared for. Knowing loved ones are comfortable, clean, warm, and well-fed. That they are not lonely. They have a companion and friend with them who will enable them to laugh. Someone to smile with, and to make the best every day. Gone are the pressures of the home; with the laundry, home-cooked meals and cleaning taken care of.

Engaging a Live-in Carer enables continued involvement with the local community, friends, groups and other social activities.

What Are the Benefits of 'Live-in Care?'

The primary benefit of ‘Live-in Care’ is that people remain living in their own home. Other benefits include:

  • Value for money. Live-in Care is comparable to a residential care home but provides bespoke, personalised care as and when required

  • Proven improved health outcomes. Studies show that people supported to live at home fall less than those in residential care homes

  • Familiarity of Carers who stay for extended periods and return regularly

  • Family & relatives build a string relationship with the Carer/s

  • Flexibility to change your routine to suit you and not your care company

  • Flexibility to do what you want when you choose

  • Choice of Carer. You choose who lives with you and cares for you/your loved one.

  • Couples can stay together – whether one or both need support

  • Owners and much-loved pets stay together

  • The whole family will have peace of mind

  • It is a cost effective alternative to moving into a residential care home, especially for couples

  • Unrivalled one-to-one care and support delivered as and when needed throughout the day or night

"I was absolutely delighted with the way the live in carer looked after my husband while I took a short break. I was very apprehensive about leaving him but from the moment we met I knew Access Care had made a good match and that the carer would be a great companion for my husband. Friends and family that met her were very complimentary too."
