A " one-size-fits-all" service simply will not provide you with the respite, part -time or full -time care that ensures the perfect live-in support.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Live-in Care
The Advantages of Having a Live-in Care Worker
Personalised and committed one -to- one care by a highly trained and experienced Care Worker, with a very similar character and outlook on life.
Allows people to enjoy an absolutely familiar surrounding, filled with their treasured possessions, by staying in their own home. A recent study( conducted by Consultas Care) noted that 97 Percent of those who responded would not want to move into a care home. Whilst residential care can provide a very important service, most people prefer to stay in their own home if they can
Peace of mind for the client, their close friends and neighbours and family members that experienced and fully trained hands are available to help. Live-in care decreases the feelings of being isolated and of being lonely by offering companionship. A live-in care worker can encourage and support the continued activities of interests and hobbies. Live-in care, living at home and a feeling of ongoing independence has a positive effect on personal happiness, self-esteem, self-confidence and well- being.
A live-in care worker can help to take care of a pet which could otherwise need to be rehoused.
A live-in carer means that a family member doesn't need to become a full -time care worker. Members of the family can be assured their loved one is getting the ideal care and attention.
If travel and leisure remains a possibility, then a full -time carer could accompany a client on a break.
Live-in carers will be matched based on expertise and experience meaning they are specifically trained to manage and support Parkinson's Disease, dementia, strokes, MS or those requiring palliative care.
For couples, a live-in care worker is capable of supporting both and makes it possible for partners to remain together. If one care worker can support both people, this also has a financial advantage in comparison with two sets of charges in a residential care home. This is especially beneficial if one individual has dementia or needs extra support that would mean living in separate residential care homes.
The Disadvantages of Having a Live-in Care Worker
Unless Of Course utilising an knowledgeable company such as Total Living Care, choosing the right care worker, who's properly trained and is aware of what's needed to deliver outstanding live-in care, can be quite a challenge.
A lot of people enjoy the social life of being in a residential care home, the relief of not having to deal with their own home or responsibility of controlling their affairs. Letting go of some of their personal privacy, but taking pleasure in a chance to be continuously in contact with others.
Despite The Fact That a live-in carer cost is often lower than the expense ofa residential home, it's not cheap to have care workers available 24- hours a day, on the other hand, based on eligibility, personal budgets and direct payments mean it is possible for care to be state funded.
A live-in care worker will need a private room inside the property
Not everyone is comfortable with having a unfamiliar person residing in the house or perhaps they are used to living by themselves. Even Though in our experience, the care worker before long becomes a friend as opposed to a stranger, and the help and support soon outweigh the wish to live alone, or the alternative of a residential home.
Care workers require breaks and holidays and spend time with their loved ones, unless of course dealing with a company that offers a fully managed solution, such as Total Living Care, it can be a issue to find short- term cover.
