What is Live in Care?

A live in care service provides around the clock home care for adults and the elderly who may need this level of support to continue living in their own home and community. We provide you with your own, dedicated live in care worker who is always available in your own home to help you, day or night.

Who has Live in Care?

A wide range of people receive live in care, from those who have become elderly and frail, have physical disabilities, terminal illness, or complex care needs, to mental health support needs or a learning disability.

We also provide live in care for elderly people who have become less able to get around and have become lonely and isolated. The live in care service provides not only the support required but also friendship and companionship. We work alongside other health and social care professionals you or your loved one may need, such as district nurses, social services, and the NHS.

Additional Support

Along with your dedicated live in carer, you and your carer also have the support of our experienced office team, so you always have the reassurance and comfort of knowing that you can always speak to someone from Carewatch.

Regular care plan reviews

In our experience, most home care needs change over time; you may need less, or more support depending on your personal circumstances. A personal live in care plan will be regularly reviewed and updated.

We always ensure that not only are your care and support needs met but also your personal goals and wishes.
