What is live-in care?
We believe that everyone has the right to live safely, independently, and with dignity in an environment they are familiar with and feel comfortable in.
When a person suffers from reduced mobility, diminishing cognitive abilities, or other such problems that make life difficult and unsure, they need assistance in order to carry out their daily activities.
While facilities exist to welcome people with these needs, depriving them of their home and their already established routines and habits can often prove to be overwhelming and detrimental to not only their health but also to their happiness and general wellbeing.
With live-in care, a professional caregiver lives on the premises and provides daily support, companionship and a reliable presence for any emergency need that may arise.
On a daily basis the caregiver will:
- Perform household cleaning
- Help with dressing, toileting, bathing and hygiene
- Prepare meals
- Prompt and assist with the taking of medication
- Aide and provide support with mobility
- Run errands
- Provide companionship, a friendly smile or simply a willing ear
Additionally, our professional handpicked and carefully vetted caregivers can ensure that your loved one’s social life is not interrupted, that their comfortable routine and schedule is maintained, that they are given the peace and privacy they need and that, should an emergency arise, they are never left to fend for themselves all alone.

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.
