24 Care in Kent broadly can be divided into residential and live-in care. Residential care is when the person receiving the care lives in a care home and receives 24-hour support. As the name suggests, live-in care is when the caregiver lives with the person they are caring for and provides care and support around the clock.

"The hometouch carers were very well qualified and diligent with the help and assistance they provided. Their help was warm and comforting in a difficult time of transition. I would have no hesitation in recommending hometouch and their people in the future."

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.
