Live-In Home Care - An Alternative to Care Homes
Traditionally, care homes have existed to welcome people who suffer from reduced mobility or diminishing cognitive ability among other specific medical needs. While care homes continue to be an option, we believe that they shouldn’t be your only option.
Live-in care is becoming an increasingly popular solution in Cornwall and throughout the United Kingdom - particularly among those who have higher support needs or who wish to benefit from more personalized support and attention.
Those who choose in-home 24-hour care over a care home find that it can provide more stability and familiarity in otherwise unstable and unfamiliar circumstances. Live-in personal care enables them to maintain their routines and live as independently as possible with dignity, staying in their own home in their own local community.
Beyond traditional clinical support, live-in home carers provide the following services:
- A friendly and familiar presence
- Assistance with personal hygiene (bathing, dressing, grooming, and toileting)
- Support with mobility (including minimizing the risk of falls)
- Continuity, helping with trips out to maintain social functions or medical appointments
Live-in home carers also ensure that:
- The home is kept tidy and hygienic
- Meals are prepared and a regular and healthy diet is maintained
- Medication is taken as and when prescribed
- Pets are looked after
There are many benefits to home care and many different types of care that we can provide. Contact a Hometouch Care Advisor today to explore your options.
Why Choose Hometouch Live-In Care Service?
Unlike other care agencies, Hometouch is fully regulated and continuously upholds the strict standards enforced by the CQC (Care Quality Commission, an independent regulator of health and social care in England).
Founded by Dr Jamie Wilson, a former NHS psychiatrist and specialist in dementia, Hometouch began as an online platform that worked to bring care professionals in contact with those seeking live-in carers or specialist care and support. In order to meet the on-going needs of their clients, Hometouch has since expanded to offer fully-managed care. Hometouch has become a leader in specialist care, notably dementia home care, building partnerships with memory clinics and organisations such as the Alzheimer’s Society.
We’ve handpicked the finest highly trained in-home care providers from across the United Kingdom to provide live-in assistance and support service, dementia care, and live-in care for the elderly or people recovering from a recent injury or illness. We are fully regulated and dedicated to ensuring your loved one gets the care and support they need while maintaining the quality of life they have come to enjoy, with compassion, respect, and dignity.

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.
