Signs Your Loved One May Need Live-In Home Care
Struggles brought on by dementia or a lack of mobility are often downplayed out of pride, embarrassment, or simply the wish to spare family members from worry. However, there are signs that may indicate your loved one may be in need of support. They are reluctant to come out and ask for themselves.
- Frequent or unprovoked falls
- Wandering or moving from room to room without a clear or reasonable objective
- Hygiene issues - unkempt hair, infrequent bathing, or remaining in the same clothes for extended periods of time
- Improper diet - skipping meals, eating too little, or eating foods with little nutritional value
- Restless sleep or somnambulance
If you are noticing your loved one displaying some of these signs, please speak with their GP or a relevant health care professional. Additionally, you can contact a Hometouch Care Advisor. Talk to us. We are here to help you to help the one you love.
Hometouch is voluntarily regulated by the CQC (Care Quality Commission), an independent regulatory body of health and social care providers in England. They regularly review the care we manage.

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.
