Hometouch live-In care goes beyond providing simple yet critical medical support. As our name suggests, we aspire to provide far more - round-the-clock care with a personal touch, in the environment that is the most comfortable and familiar to your loved one.

Live-In Care, Care Home, or Nursing Home - Pros and Cons
The concern many people have with care homes or nursing homes is that they often offer a one-size-fits-all solution. In reality, we are providing care to individuals, and individuals have specific needs and wants that can best be met with dedicated personal attention.
- Maintaining a familiar daily structure - Your loved one has a greater chance of being comfortable and happy in their own routine rather than adapting to the schedule and habits of a care home.
- Staying in the familiar home offers a greater sense of independence and dignity than having to relocate to a facility.
- Pets - While many care homes claim to be pet-friendly, the devil is in the details. With live-in care, your loved one maintains the autonomy to decide for themselves how they live, rather than having to comply with the rules of a care home, which are often restrictive in regard to pets.
- Peace and privacy - In the comfort of their own home, your loved one has a greater chance of finding the peace and privacy they need.

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.
