24-hour Care at Home Somerset: What Other Types of Home Care are Available?

Live-in care isn't the only type of home care accessible. Dementia care is becoming more widespread in Somerset as the number of persons over 65 increases.

Because of the unique effects of this condition, such as wandering, agitation, and confusion, dementia care necessitates specialised skills and training. Our live-in carers provide care in the comfort of your own home as an alternative to dementia care homes in Somerset.

What Sets Domiciliary Care Apart From Other Types of Care in Somerset?

Hourly or drop-in home care in Somerset is a less intense option that provides short visits to cover basic requirements like washing and dressing, food preparation, and personal care.

Our private live-in carers are primarily self-employed and operate independently or through an agency. Nighttime care, respite care, Parkinson’s care, and companionship care are just some of the options offered.

What is Somerset Respite Care, and How Does it Work?

Choosing respite care for the elderly or respite care for elderly patients can provide carers and people they care for with a much-needed break, allowing them to relax and enjoy a vacation or some alone time. 

Hometouch offers respite care for family caregivers, providing a much-needed break or an alternative to short-term residential care.

Elderly Care Somerset

Are you looking for a less expensive option to a Somerset residential care home? Then our Somerset live-in care services for private live-in care may be the best option for you. All of our live-in carers have extensive expertise and have been thoroughly vetted. They operate professionally while providing appropriate care and attention.

Our commitment to home care means that each customer is treated as an individual, with personal choices and independence taken into account at all times. Our live-in carers are suitably trained in elderly care and provide an alternative to Somerset's nursing facilities. Frailty, mobility limitations, loneliness, and various medical issues are all common characteristics of elderly adults who require special needs.

Hometouch's elderly Care in Somerset includes medication administration, companionship, and taking clients to appointments.

How Do Care Homes in Somerset Differ From Live-in Care?

Residential and live-in care are the two types of care available in Somerset. In the end, deciding between a live-in carer at home versus care in a facility boils down to balancing one's own personal practical circumstances and feelings. 

Choosing between live-in care and a care facility is a personal decision that must be made based on what is most important to you and your family. If your loved one has trouble settling into a care facility, home care may be the best alternative.

Please see our in-depth article for additional information on Somerset care homes and live-in care as an option.

Our Expertly Trained Care Teams in Somerset

Our professional carers complete an industry-leading training program that goes far beyond industry requirements and is developed in collaboration with renowned charities and experts. This enables our expert caregivers to assist older adults with various diseases, including complex conditions that necessitate extra monitoring, care, and help. 

Our carers never stop learning new skills to ensure they can deliver the high-quality care our clients need, from training through probation to placement and beyond. They also look for new methods to improve the level of care they provide.

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.

What are the Benefits of Live-in Care?

Many clients hire a live-in carer or support worker for various reasons. There are numerous compelling reasons to receive live-in care at home rather than going through the stress, upheaval, and uncertainty of transferring into a care facility:

  • Avoiding change – with that extra help, daily life can stay pretty much the same.
  • Flexible care tailored to your needs – your private caregiver can assist you as much or as little as you want.
  • Maintaining the same habits, pastimes, and interests
  • Companionship is essential, whether it's eating meals, watching TV, or going on outings.
  • Family and friends can still visit as usual.
  • Emotional assistance — many of our live-in carers have become friends with our clients.
