Live in care is a popular choice for those who want to enjoy life in familiar surroundings. One of the main benefits is that it helps older people and those who require care, retain their independence and dignity, while enjoying a high quality, personalised service tailored to their individual needs.
A change in environment may lead to distress or confusion
This option is also appealing to older or vulnerable people who may become confused by a change in environment, as well as those who find it challenging to adapt to changes in their life which can include losing a pet. A live in carer may be better suited to people living with dementia, who require routine and easily recognised familiar surroundings.
These can be reassuring for a person with dementia and it can improve their quality of life, as well as making them feel safe in their own homes. Relatives too can be assured that the person with dementia is receiving the best care.
Live-in care may suit if the person requires companionship or help with washing and dressing. It also would be beneficial to those who require assistance with cooking and organising medication. Live in carers can also carry out housework as well as helping the person enjoy lifelong hobbies and interests. Having a live in carer may also reduce the risk of falls and this can be reassuring for relatives.
A range of duties can be carried out
Reliable and highly trained and experienced live in carers are available to provide a personal, quality care service. Live in Care can provide live in carers for a range of services, from personal care to companionship and assistance with various daily tasks.
According to Belfast Live it is not only older people who carry out caring duties. Young carers too, often play important roles within their own families.
A live-in carer may only be required for a short period of time. Perhaps the person is recovering from an illness or has just undergone an operation and is temporarily immobile. This is a situation which often arises and it may be that the person has no close relatives or friends to provide this service.
A package of care can be tailored to suit individual needs and most importantly, the older or vulnerable person can feel safe and protected at home.
