Live-in Care Services
Hometouch offers on-site services to younger and older people with learning disabilities, physical disabilities, mental health problems, and dementia. Our carers are ready to assist your loved one with household chores, food preparation, medication, personal hygiene, and anything that would help them spend time in peace and comfort. They offer a friendly, reliable, and compassionate presence, treating you and your family members with dignity and respect.
Benefits of Live-in Care
Many people prefer live-in care rather than to send their loved ones to a facility, and it’s clear to see why. Your loved ones are able to retain as much autonomy and independence as possible, with minimal disruption of the lifestyle they’re used to. Couples can live together, and they can keep family pets, which is not possible in a facility.
Additionally, carers handpicked by Hometouch provide your loved one with companionship, giving you peace of mind - you can rest assured that your family member has one-to-one support and is assisted during their daily activities.
At Hometouch, we know how important and sensitive are services we offer. That’s why we provide our carers with extensive training to prepare them for the tasks they will face while assisting your loved one. Our carers are vetted, skilled, and handpicked, ready to support your loved ones and help them throughout the day.
Our services are supervised by the Care Quality Communication (CQC), England’s independent organization responsible for the regulation of health and social care. It performs routine checks to assess the quality of services provided by our carers. In one of the reports, CQC stated, “Hometouch provided safe care. Staff received training in safeguarding people and there were safe recruitment procedures in place to protect people from the unsuitable staff. There was enough care staff deployed to support people.”

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.
