What to consider with Live in Care Live-in care provides you with a Carer living in your home and is perfect for those people who prefer to stay in the comfort of familiar surroundings.
There are many things to consider when contemplating how to handle the care of a loved one. The choice whether to opt for Live-in Care or to place your loved one in a Care Home really comes down to choosing a greater level of independence and flexibility or a more fixed regiment.
Whilst Care Homes suit the care needs of some individuals, there are many that are looking for an alternative. Live-in Care is the ideal solution for those that want to retain their independence, offering bespoke one-to-one support assistance in your own home on your own terms.
Live-in Care offers the flexibility of simple things such eating what you want, going to bed when you want, watching what you like on television. These may seem straightforward requests but the importance cannot be underestimated when considering the mental well-being of your loved one; beloved pets get to stay home too! The benefits of allowing the elderly to retain their individuality and independence in their later years cannot be overlooked; this is particularly true for dementia conditions where maintaining continuity and familiarity of routine is especially important.
With the flexibility of live in Care in Dorset, the family can visit on their own schedule and can have more hands-on involvement if they choose to. A bespoke support plan, delivered on a one-to-one basis, is a level of personal care that Care Homes cannot compete with. Whilst the costs of Live-in care and Care Homes are comparable, the level of personalised care certainly isn’t. At Angel Carers, our 24 hours live in care Dorset programme allows for reassuring care in the comfort and security of the client’s home.
Our fully trained staff are on hand to help you carry out all tasks throughout the day, living within the home for round-the-clock confidence. For many, this type of care is the best way to avoid the complications of moving into a residential home and with Angel Carers you will be in the best hands.
There are a variety of different ways to raise funds as explained on our funding pages, but in reality, the costs are similar to residential home care and can always be sourced from the value of your own home.
The great thing about Angel Carers is the individuality you preserve on our programmes, each tailored to exact requirements that could change with every day. Your trained carer will help you with driving, shopping and home keeping as you concentrate on the more important things in life. As well as this, general security and meal preparations will be carried out for you, all your carer needs in return is a clean room with TV and the facilities to ensure three meals a day for them.
Not only does a programme with Angel Carers mean less to worry about for the client, but also for their family. Having a 24/7 carer means no more going to the shops or cooking for their loved-one, it instead means more time to really enjoy the time together.
Our carers go through an interview process that makes sure we have only the best people looking for our valued clients. We even take the time to match the perfect carer for each unique case, this way both parties feel completely comfortable and the standard of care remains the highest it can be.
“The service that you have provided has been nothing short of excellent from the moment your coordinator first visited us. The carers that you provided have been lovely and tender in their dealing with my mother and I cannot thank enough particularly those that lived in with my mother almost became part of the family. I don’t think that any could expect anymore! I do hope that you take comfort in this as I want you to know that I think you operate a very attentive and understandingly caring business with some excellent staff.”
“Just a short note of Thanks to you both for making me feel so welcome when I joined your Care Agency. Having met some of your other very competent carers I feel I have made the right choice about being part of your team. Thank you so much, you are very different to all the other care agencies I have worked for”
