Elderly Gentleman with his Live-in Carer

Leading Live-in Care Introduction Agency

Do you have a family member that wants to remain living in their own home but would benefit from someone living in their house with them? Then our Live-in carer recruitment service is the solution you are looking for.


A viable alternative to a residential care home, recruiting a live-in carer is now a popular option for people across the UK who want to live in their own home, whilst receiving the round-the-clock care and support they need.

Our professional, yet friendly consultants will help find a tailored solution for your family.

We are here for:

  • Emergency, urgent Live-in care (a Carer can be with you within 24-48hrs)

  • Short-term introductions

  • Long-term Carer placements

  • Convalescence care

  • Holiday cover & Holiday companionship

  • Companionship at family events

We know that arranging live-in care gives everyone in a family, true peace of mind, safe in the knowledge that parent's and loved ones are being looked after; that they 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, to smile, and to make the most of every day. Gone are the pressures of the home; with the laundry, home-cooked meals and cleaning taken care of. That is where we come in, we find you the perfect Live-in Carer.

Engaging a Live-in Carer enables continued involvement with the local community, friends, groups and other social activities. Live-in Carers accompany their clients to appointments, church, family gatherings and even on holidays. A Live-in carer's role is to enable, support and help people to live the life they wish to live, where they wish to live, at home.

Live-in care will help with all manner of daily activities.

Some of the more common include:

  • Companionship, Mental Stimulation, Conversation and Laughter

  • Dressing and Undressing

  • Washing, Bathing, Showering & Continence support

  • Oral Hygiene & Denture Care

  • Eye Care

  • Hair & Nail Care

Whether your primary consideration is cost, experience, a specific language, a driver or anything else, we will do our very best to find you your ideal match. We do the hard work for you, we recruit on your behalf, ensure the people we present to you for selection are trained, have criminal records checked, will match personality wise and based on your given criteria. We meet and interview every Live-in Carer that registers with us on your behalf and if you'd like to meet them, we will of course do our very best to see if we can arrange this for you too*.

*Please note that meeting our Live-in Carers is not always possible if they are on an assignment with another one of our lovely Clients or are abroad but we can help arrange a Zoom, Skype or Facetime chat - we have ways and means to help!

Advantages of 'Live-in Care'

The primary benefit of ‘live-in care’ is that people can remain living in their own home, but there are many others, for example:

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

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

  • Flexibility to change routine 

  • Flexibility to do what you want, when you choose

  • Choice of Carer

  • 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

"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."
