For young adults with physical or mental disabilities, accessing support for daily living can be challenging. Live-in Care services for complex care can provide the perfect solution for those seeking independence, flexibility, and choice. A Home Carer Personal Assistant can offer 24-hour support in the comfort of your own home or university halls. In this blog post, we will explore the many benefits of Live-in Care for young adults and how it can help them achieve their goals.

What is Live-in Care?

Live in Care is a one-to-one support service that enables individuals with disabilities to live independently with the help of a Live-in Personal Assistant. The Personal Assistant lives with the young adult in their home or university accommodation, providing support with personal care, cooking, housekeeping, medication assistance, and shopping. They can also help with mobility and accompany the young adult to work, university, or social events.

Working and Studying with a Disability

For young adults who work, a Home Carer Personal Assistant can help them safely get to their office and even stay with them while they work. They can also assist with driving and running errands. For those who are studying at university or college, the Live-in carer / Personal Assistant will live with them in their halls and work closely with the support team on campus to ensure they attend lectures on time. They will also help with creating a quiet study environment and participate in social activities.

Socialising and Travelling with a Disability

A Living in carer / Personal Assistant can help young adults with disabilities enjoy social events such as weddings, birthday parties, theatre trips, and pub nights. They can help with preparation, attend events and adapt personal care to suit their needs. The Personal Assistant can also help with social networking and staying in touch with friends and family through social media. Additionally, Live-in Care can help young adults with disabilities travel and see the world. They can plan accessible holidays together, and the Personal Assistant can accompany them wherever they go!

Other Activities

Live-in Care can also help young adults with disabilities engage in adapted sports, music therapy, VR therapy, gardening, swimming, and other activities. The Personal Assistant will support the young adult in whatever they wish to do!
