Live-in Home Care in Cardiff
A care home can provide support for people suffering from mobility issues or a decline in cognitive abilities. But the downside is that this support comes at the loss of the comfort and familiarity of the person’s home.
Residents of Cardiff and the surrounding areas have a choice. If you or your loved one is in need of support, medical or clinical supervision, companionship, or special assistance, you can have a qualified, highly trained professional provide round-the-clock attention in-home.

Hometouch Offers Fully Regulated Live-In Home Care to Residents of Cardiff
Unlike many other live-in home care agencies, Hometouch is fully regulated. The founder of Hometouch, Dr Jamie Wilson, believes oversight and accountability are important. This is especially true since Hometouch initially focused on providing dementia care (his specialisation) and he believed the quality of dementia care could be greatly improved with this high level of regulation.
The CQC (Care Quality Commission) is an independent regulator of health and social care in England. They hold care providers to high standards and ensure those standards are met by conducting regular reviews, check-ins, and interviews with all concerned parties. In an independent evaluation of Hometouch, the CQC reported that “people's outcomes were consistently good, and people's feedback confirmed this.”
In a summary of the quality of care Hometouch manages, the CQC report “Hometouch provided safe care. Staff received training in safeguarding people and there were safe recruitment procedures in place to protect people from unsuitable staff.... People received their medicines safely by suitably trained staff.... Staff were provided with guidelines on how to minimise identified risks.”
Get the Support You Need in the Comfort and Familiarity of Your Own Home
Hometouch was founded by a guiding principle - everyone, regardless of their age, physical or mental condition, should be empowered to be able to live with dignity, comfort, and security. Sending a loved one to a care home is a choice, but it shouldn’t be the only choice available to people living in Cardiff.
By staying in their own home with a live-in carer, as opposed to going to a care home, your loved one will be able to maintain their daily routine - which is crucial to empowering people with a sense of independence and autonomy. Your loved one will have companionship and a comforting presence. Should an emergency arise, a trained professional will be there with your loved one to make sure the appropriate measures are taken immediately.

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.
