It is estimated that, in England, approximately 27% of hours of private homecare is purchased on a live-in basis.
A live in carer enables those people who want to live in their own home, but require continued supervision to do so. The carer will move into the client’s home providing personalised support enabling the client to live as independently as possible. This could include:
- Domestic duties
- Assistance with personal care
- Meal preparation
- Maintaining a safe environment for the client
At Firstpoint Homecare, the client will meet and get to know the carer to ensure they are comfortable before the carer is placed in the client’s home. This is a flexible, cost effective alternative to moving into a care home.
