Live-in Care in Maidenhead
If you have an ageing relative and are struggling to find the right care option for them, you’re not the only one. The majority of Brits in a similar situation face this old dilemma: should you send them to a care facility, or hire a live-in caregiver who will provide them with assistance whenever they need it?
At Hometouch, we pride ourselves on matching our clients with the best live-in carers in Maidenhead in order to provide their relatives with all the support and comfort they could possibly need.
If you were to sift through all of the potential caregivers by yourself, it would require a whole lot of time and effort on your part. By using Hometouch’s services, not only will we help you find an experienced professional, but also adjust the caregiver to your relative’s individual needs.

Finding Live-in Carers in Maidenhead
Ever since its conception in 2016, Hometouch’s mission has been to simplify the process of finding trustworthy and experienced live-in caregivers for all patients. Regardless of whether they struggle with Alzheimer’s, dementia, or rare physical ailments, every elderly person deserves the very best care and attention.
This is why we’ve created a system that helps our clients link up with caregivers who not only match their requirements when it comes to skills and expertise but also experience with similar patience, along with any and all of the other requirements you may have.
The Hometouch offer is split into two different packages: introductory and regulated. The main difference between them is the fact that the introductory care only matches you with a carer, leaving you in full control of the cooperation, whereas in the regulated option, our representatives take care of your relative’s individual care plan and carry out visits to observe and assess the caregiver’s performance. On top of that, our work is regulated by the CQC, ensuring the quality and consistency of our services.
Live-in Carers and Financial Assistance
The reason why so many people still opt to send their ageing parents and grandparents to care homes is that these facilities are still cheaper than hiring a full-time, live-in caregiver. This difference in pricing is warranted by the fact that the service of a live-in carer is incomparable to that of the nursing staff of a care home. Individual care and total focus on one patient is a full-time job for Hometouch’s carers, and their reimbursement needs to reflect that.
If you’re worried about not being able to afford live-in care, you might want to consider applying for funding from your local government. There are many programs that will provide you with the money to hire a carer, as long as you and your relative meet their specific requirements.
What is live-in care?
Live-in care is when a carer lives with the person receiving care in their home. From companionship care all the way to round-the-clock complex care, a live-in carer can provide one-to-one support in your loved one’s own home. This is especially important for people living with dementia, who may become increasingly confused or distressed in unfamiliar surroundings.
A dedicated live-in carer can provide your loved one with more individual care than they’d receive at a residential home. So whether it’s a day out on weekends, or fish and chips in front of the TV on a Friday evening, your loved one can carry on doing the things they enjoy. And because the carer is staying on-site, it’s often cheaper than a care home too. To find out more about the cost of care where you live, take a look at our page on understanding the cost of care.
At hometouch, we help people live happily, safely and with dignity in their own homes. If you think live-in care could be right for your loved one, contact a hometouch Care Advisor today.
