Why Home Care Instead Of Residential Care Services?
As mentioned, there are many different types of home and private care services that we provide, ranging from domiciliary care to senior care. There have been a lot of studies that have suggested that people prefer to live in their own home rather than going to a private residential care home when they get older. This is because they feel comfortable in their own home and they want to maintain a level of independence. This is something that the live-in carer can help you to achieve. After all, moving to a new home can be stressful for anyone. When you couple this with the fact that you will be moving into a residential care facility, with set visiting times, set meals, and set routines, it is not hard to see why someone would not be overly excited about this. However, it is important to realise that general and dementia residential care homes are not the only option. You can still help your loved one to get the care and assistance that they deserve without making their move into one of the private care homes. In home care means that you will be able to keep to the same daily routines as usual and that friends and family members will still be able to visit you as they would usually do. The only difference is it you will have an experienced carer who will be there to provide a regulated service. This means that they will provide you with all the help and assistance that you need, like you would get in elderly residential homes, so that you can live a happy and healthy life in your home without having to rely on residential care homes.
What Does A Live-In Carer Do?
A live-in carer will provide assistance with a selection of different domestic tasks, for example, administering medication, completing household chores, running errands, and preparing meals. They make it possible for anybody who needs care to live in an environment that is comfortable, clean, and safe without having to go to an elderly care home. When you benefit from our service, we will provide any sort of tasks and routines that you need assistance with. These tasks will be based on your personal requirements and what is most important to you. Below, we will outline some of the different home residential care services that we provide to give you a better understanding. It is important to note that this is not an exhaustive list. Therefore, please do not hesitate to ask us if you have any specific requirements. So, some of the things that we will be able to assist you with are as follows…
Maintaining your independence
One thing that we can help you to do is to maintain your independence. This is the number one reason why people do not want to move into a residential facility. We can support you in getting out and about. This could be anything from enjoying some time with your friends and family to going to the cinema or doing some shopping.

There are a number of different tasks that we can help with around the home. This includes running errands, for example, shopping for groceries and collecting prescriptions.
