Live in care is a 24 hour long term service. We provide Live-in Care workers who will provide the assistance and support necessary to continue with a Service User’s chosen lifestyle in their own home.
Live in care is an alternative to going into respite or going into a home. The difference between live in care and respite or a care home is, the care you will receive will be personal centred and focused on you alone. Giving the service users and family peace of mind.
A live in care package includes the below:
- Personal care
- Meal preparation
- Medication administration and monitoring
- Out and about
Other tasks may include help to meet friends, keep in touch with family or perhaps walk a dog and companionship, and the security of having someone living with you.
We ensure that the care worker is matched to the service user needs and requirements. We do this by introducing the care worker before the package starts to ensure you are happy with the care worker.
For family members, we provide a tablet which will enable you to skype or facetime throughout the day to check up on your loved one and keep your mind at ease. If you are unable to skype or facetime, not to worry. Hope homecare uses a paperless care note system, meaning you will have access to care notes online, on demand, 24/7 from where ever you are. Be it at work or even sunning yourself on the beach, you will have ease of mind that everything is ok by logging onto our system and reading the care notes or contacting your family member through skype or facetime, all that you’ll need is internet access.
