Live-in Care in Weston-super-Mare
Your loved ones might find it emotionally hard to move out of the house, leaving most of the valuable belongings behind. At Hometouch, we offer professional live-in care services for the elderly.
Our specialists are vetted and properly trained. They leave an update in the online journal, which is accessible by family members, and carers also follow a personalised daily plan to support the patients’ health and wellbeing.
How Does Hometouch Stand Out From the Competition?
Hometouch provides a wide range of services for the elderly. We specialise in dementia care, physical and learning disabilities.
We work with compassionate and experienced professionals. And we regularly monitor their performance, too. Additionally, you can see the daily activity of your loved one because our specialists leave information in Hometouch online journal after every visit.
In 2019, the Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspected our organisation and confirmed the high quality of our services when it comes to our work. A detailed description is available here.
What Is the Cost of Live-in Care?
The cost highly depends on the location, carer’s experience and patient’s health condition. A 24-hour care service can cost around £120 a day. Hometouch employs specialists with a minimum of 2-year experience and qualified to assist and support patients’ unique needs. Our carers salary can vary, and it can be around £15-20 per hour.
Financial Aid for Residents of Weston-Under-Mare
Since we cooperate with only professional and experienced carers, their salary can be higher than average. However, the overall service is still cheaper than in the traditional agencies. We trust and rely on our specialists; that’s why we support and maintain long-term contracts with them.
Some of your private funds can be used to cover the costs of live-in care. They may be from your savings or pension. Local authorities can cover another part if you meet the requirements.
Once you contact your local council, someone will carry out an assessment to confirm that your loved one requires personal care. Next, if the patient is eligible, a specific amount of funding will be allocated.
In order to be eligible for financial aid, the care recipient should experience problems with safely managing basic activities like bathing, dressing, and others. Another financial aid is available if you have assets less than £23,250. You can be entitled to £400-600 a week, depending on the council budget.

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.
