What is 24 Hour Live-in Care?
Like other care agencies our service is predominantly for elderly people who wish to remain at home, instead of moving to a residential or nursing facility.
The live-in carers are on hand 24 hours, 7 days per week and cover all aspects of daily life including personal care, cooking, cleaning, shopping and taking clients to appointments or to visit friends.

How else can we help?
We can also offer temporary respite care on a live-in basis. For more basic help needs, please see our domiciliary care page.
The Care Manager personally visits each client to assess care needs and other personal home care services and social requirements. Following this, a suitable carer is matched to the client.

How good is your carers knowledge on Dementia?
All of our carers have excellent knowledge about Dementia and are trained thoroughly on how to deal with and support people who suffer with Dementia. Each of our Dementia Care clients has their support needs acknowledged beforehand so that the care is as efficient and beneficial as possible. Each of our carers also has a great understanding of dementia symptoms and how to deal with them. With Dementia Care, the level and care and support can vary day by day, this is why it is important they are knowledgeable about Dementia so they can deal with different situations at different stages.
What is companionship care?
Companionship care is primarily aimed at our senior clients so that they can have emotional support and companion. It is common for elderly people to become lonely when their mobility is low and they may have a lot of friends or family members that have sadly passed away. Our carers help to keep our clients’ minds busy and to keep them company. Loneliness can make an impact very negatively on a person’s life and can lead to cognitive decline. This is why being accompanied is so important. Our Companionship Care services are all bespoke specifically for the client, so the care is as effective as possible.
