Live-in Care in Tyldesley

Elderly care is a tricky subject in many countries, including the United Kingdom. Horror stories of incompetent or downright cruel caregivers and profit-oriented institutions appear on the news quite frequently, making it especially difficult to arrive at a decision as to how to secure the best quality care for your ageing loved one.

This is where Hometouch comes in. With years of experience in the live-in care industry, we can present you with a list of thoroughly vetted, highly qualified care professionals who will be able to meet your relative’s needs on every level, providing them with a safe and comfortable environment.

You can reach out to us via the Hometouch Care Advisory form to get started with devising a care plan, or call us at 020 3870 4220 to speak with one of our representatives directly.

What Sets Hometouch Apart?

Hometouch was established in 2016 with the intention of eradicating the institutional, soulless approach to elderly care and replacing it with compassionate and comprehensive live-in care services, making life easier for both patients and caregivers.

The mastermind behind Hometouch is Dr Jamie Wilson, an experienced NHS dementia psychiatrist. With decades of elderly care experience under his belt, he decided to create Hometouch in hopes of revolutionizing the approach to elderly care. At Hometouch, we assess each case individually and thoroughly, comparing it to our wide base of live-in carers in Tyldesley to find the best match for your family member. Contrary to other, similar services, we don’t group or categorize patients by their conditions, but rather put together a comprehensive profile of each individual, and suggest potential caretakers from a list of qualified people who, in our professional opinion, would be the best fit for your relative.

Advantages of Live-in Care Over Care Homes

Granted, live-in care is much more expensive than booking a room at a care home for your relative, but the increased price tag does not come without its unique benefits. Here are some of the main advantages of arranging live-in care for your loved one over putting them in a care home:

  • Individual approach. Nurses who work in elderly care homes are often assigned to multiple patients at a time, making it difficult for them to provide the best quality care to each one of them. This is not an issue in the case of live-in caretakers, who are fully focused on only one patient.
  • Regulated service. Large institutions, such as care homes, make it easy for abuse and mismanagement of patients to slip through the cracks. Homecare’s services are monitored and regulated by the CQC on an individual basis, ensuring the safety and comfort of your family members.
  • Good working conditions. One of the biggest issues plaguing the social care system in the UK is the fact that care home nurses are oftentimes overworked and underpaid, which has a negative impact on the quality of care they provide. Hiring one of Hometouch’s live-in carers ensures that their working conditions and financial struggles won’t be a factor in terms of the quality of care they provide.

    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.
