Live-in Care in Islington
When your loved one can no longer live on their own and you’re not capable of giving them your complete attention, you have a difficult decision to make. On the one hand, you can send them to a facility. On the other hand, you can look for live-in care providers and let your family member remain in the comfort of their own home, in the environment they know well.
Hometouch offers live-in care services in Islington and throughout England. Our carers are experienced and qualified to assist your loved one while helping them remain as independent and autonomous as possible.
Contact Hometouch today if you want to get more information about our services. Let’s explore our options together and look for the best solution for you and your family.
What Does Live-in Care Include?
Hometouch live-in care services are suitable for younger and older people with dementia, physical or learning disabilities, and mental health problems. Our staff is ready to provide your loved ones with assistance and companionship during the day, including tasks related to personal hygiene, medication management, food preparation, household chores, and more.
Depending on your needs, you can choose round-the-clock care or opt for in-home care services at an hourly or weekly rate. We’ll help you pick the best option and help you discover various funding options that may apply to you.
Who Are Hometouch Carers?
Hometouch carers are handpicked, carefully vetted, and trained to provide professional services with compassion and respect. The ones we hire have at least two years of experience. Additionally, their performance is assessed and regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), England’s independent regulator of health and social care. In one of their reports, CQC stated: “The service was well managed. There were clear policies and procedures guiding staff on what their roles and responsibilities were. The management team was aware of their regulatory responsibilities.”
What Are the Benefits?
Sending your family member to a facility is one option but live-in care may prove more beneficial to them. Live-in care has many advantages, including:
- High level of independence and autonomy for your loved one
- Personal, one-on-one support

- Your loved one can live with their partner or family

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.
