What Service Do Carers Provide?
Our carers assist with household chores, medication, personal hygiene such as bathing, dressing and toileting, food preparation, and more. The carer allows your elderly family member to continue to live comfortably and safely at home, and they offer a friendly, reliable presence.
Hometouch carers are handpicked, carefully vetted and trained. Before they can work for Hometouch, we ask ourselves - Would we want this person looking after our loved one? Only if the answer is a resounding, enthusiastic ‘Yes’ do we then send them out to meet the client.

Other kinds of in-home care Hometouch provides
It may be difficult to understand the difference in the types of care available. Below, you will find short explanations of the types of care we offer.
Don’t hesitate to Contact a Hometouch Care Advisor with your questions.
In the event that the usual caregiver is unavailable for a set period of time or the usual caregiver simply needs a break, we can provide short-term relief. Let us help you ensure health and happiness, not only for the person being cared for but also for the caregiver.
In-home nursing care is provided by registered nurses. They provide clinical care for people with complex conditions - including but not limited to ventilation issues, stomas, catheters, PEG feeding or feeding tubes.
For those approaching the end of their life, we can provide professional palliative caregivers who will ensure your loved one passes away in relative comfort with compassion and dignity.
For those with a disability or reduced mobility, disability care can provide support ranging from practical help with household chores, bathing and toileting to nursing assistance with complex needs.
Frailty and reduced mobility can often provoke profound feelings of isolation and loneliness. If you fear this may happen to your elderly family member, we can provide a live-in companionship carer tailored to meet your unique needs.

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.
