Exceptional live-in care in Dorset
From Shaftesbury to Swanage, we’ve assembled the finest carers across Dorset. So whether you’re in Poole, Bournemouth, Lyme Regis or Dorchester, you can be sure of an exceptional standard of care for your loved one anywhere in the sunny South West.
All our live-in carers are handpicked for empathy and experience. They undergo a rigorous vetting process to make sure we only take on people we’d want to have looking after our own families. We’re rated five stars on Trustpilot, and we’ve got a rating of 9.8/10 on homecare.co.uk.
Our live-in care service
hometouch was founded by Dr Jamie Wilson, a former NHS dementia specialist, to help people live happily, safely and with dignity in their own homes. We believe in providing the best care – whether it’s specialist dementia care, post-operative care, palliative and end-of-life care, respite care or just companionship. We choose carers who have both empathy and experience, to make sure you have peace of mind, and your loved one receives first-class care.
Our prices start from £850 a week for live-in care in Dorset, and we also offer packages for more complex medical needs. Whatever your loved one’s care needs, companionship or clinical support, we’ll find out their interests, preferences and requirements and match them with an exceptional carer. Get in touch with a hometouch Care Advisor to find out how we can help.
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.
