Why Should I Choose Hometouch?
Unlike many other care agencies, Hometouch is a fully regulated live-in care agency. This means that the Care Quality Commission (CQC), an independent regulator of health and social care in England, conducts regular reviews and check-ins of the care we manage. You can read their latest report on Hometouch here.
The CQC has qualified the care we manage as ‘Good’ in all the relevant fields - Safe, Effective, Caring, Responsive, and Well-led.
At Hometouch, we believe that oversight and accountability are important aspects of maintaining a high level of quality in the important service of live-in home care. And we would encourage you to only entrust an agency that is fully regulated with the critical and personal care that a live-in carer provides.
Using our unique matching service, we can pair you or your loved one with one of our vetted and trained Hometouch care providers. Together, we will make sure that the carer matches your specific needs and fits with your specific personality.

What Are My Options for Funding Live-In Home Care?
In the majority of cases, live-in care is at least partly paid for with private funds, be it through pension funds, savings, equity release on a home or through other assets.
However, depending on the type of care that is needed and the financial status of the client, there does exist the possibility of having all or a part of the care funded with the support of the local authority. Generally, if the client has assets below a certain threshold (as of 2018 that threshold is £23,250) the client may be entitled to financial assistance from the local authority.

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.
