24 hour Live-in Care At Home
'24-hour live-in care at home' is another name for 'Live-in Care.' Both terms relate to having a professionally qualified, expertly trained and vetted 'Live-in Carer' reside in you/your relative's own home for periods of time providing support as and when needed throughout a 24hr period.
There is a misconception that when people need care and support at times through the day and the night then they must move into a residential care home. This is not the case. Whilst a live-in carer cannot physically be 'on-call' 24hrs per day (no-one can), they are there to assist. If a person's needs are such that they do require a higher level of attention than one person can realistically give, then it is possible to have two live-in carers to cover the 24hrs of care. In exceptional circumstances we can arrange for three Carers to live-in for a person that needs to be supervised 24hrs per day. With 24-hour live-in care, anything is possible, and it is our mission to understand the level of care that our Clients need and recruit, then introduce the Carers that can provide it.
The benefits of 24-hour care at home:
· 24-hour care costs a similar amount to a care home and in the case of a couple needing help, is far better value for money
· One-to-one care & attention from the same person for several weeks (not rotating on shifts through the day)
· A regular team of 'Live-in Carers' chosen by you who rotate through the year, so familiar faces return, and friendships develop
· Someone in the house almost 24hrs per day (Carers need breaks) relieving the anxiety for other family members

Many have advanced care skills so are able to care for people with all manner of conditions such as
The beauty of 24hr care at home is that unlike in a care home, support is delivered on a one-to-one basis whenever it is needed and as such every day can be different, just as life really is.

"Providing 24hr respite care at home for my husband for the first time has been a learning curve, but Access Care from the start have been very understanding and supportive of my concerns. I felt they were always in the background should either the client or carer need support. My husband was matched with the ideal 24 hour carer who was excellent and coped extremely well. I would certainly use Access Care in the future and would recommend them without hesitation should the need for 24hr care at home arise."
