What is live in care?

Instead of leaving your home to move into a residential care home, and suffering all the upheaval that can cause, live in care means that you stay and receive care in the comfort of your own home from a trained and experienced carer who moves into your home; to provide care, companionship, and domestic support around the clock. This can be on a long or short term and even on a trial basis.

What are the benefits of live in care?

As we all get older and find day to day activities more and more difficult – thoughts can turn to how you can get help and support either for yourself or a loved one. You might think that moving to residential care home is your only option when a live in carer could be the perfect alternative.

Having a live in carer has the benefit of allowing you to be cared for whilst remaining at home within your familiar environment, with neighbours, friends and family nearby, and the things you have grown to love and be comforted by. A move to residential care can often give rise to anxiety and adjustment difficulties. By having a live in carer, you don’t have to move to a residential home. Instead, the carer will come in and adapt to your environment, greatly reducing anxiety and stress at an often confusing period of live. Live in carers become great companions for clients and having a familiar face enables a bond to be formed.

Process to arrange live in care

We will personally introduce you to the founder and manager of The Live in Care Company, Luca, who will then guide you through the process of arranging a carer specifically for your needs. In short this process looks like:

Understanding your needs
The Live in Care Company will take the time to get to know you and your individual needs and preferences to understand exactly how to match you and/or your loved one with the perfect carer.

Getting to know each other
Create a bespoke care plan together to get it right first time. A great opportunity for you to get all the answers to your questions.

Match your needs with a carer
The best care relationships happen when both client and carer are happy. The Live in Care Company has a wide selection of carers and the perfect carer will be selected for you.

Meet your live in carer
You have the opportunity to meet and get to know your potential live in carer, so that you can be sure that it’s a great match for all concerned.

Start date and 2 week trial
A start date will be set and your carer will arrive at midday. During these first 2 weeks you have the opportunity to experience the benefits of live in care on a non obligatory basis.

The Live in Care Company in the words of their own clients:

“This company stepped in and provided excellent care to my mother when her health deteriorated. Luca is always professional and reliable at all times. I would and have recommended them to others who are looking for a professional and trusted care provider in the community.”


“We called The Live in Care Company when a neighbour needed 24 hour support when he left hospital. The team at Live in Care quickly and efficiently established needs and recommended a carer called Michael who was able to start 24 hours later. Michael has been fully providing the care, help and support needed, including driving and has enabled our neighbour to come back safely and securely into the comfort of his own home.”

Mr M

“Great company. Found me a carer in hours when my Mom was desperate. Took a big weight off my shoulders.”
