Live-in Home Care in Newcastle
Hometouch provides personalised fully-managed live-in home care in Newcastle and throughout England.
Founder Dr Jamie Wilson, during his time as an NHS dementia specialist, saw a broken care system - carers were unfulfilled and patients weren’t getting the care they needed with the dignity they deserved. Hometouch was created to change that.
We carefully vet, handpick, and train compassionate and professional carers to empower everyone to be able to live safely, with as much independence and autonomy as possible, in the comfort of the environment that they are familiar with - their own home.
If you or your loved one need support, whether due to dementia, injury, or illness, you don’t have to go through these trying times alone.
Contact a Hometouch Care Advisor today and let’s explore your options together. Find out about the benefits a live-in home carer can provide and about the various funding options that may be available to you.
Regulated Live-In Care for Residents of Newcastle and the Surrounding Areas
Straight-forward and stress-free, the live-in care Hometouch manage is fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), England’s independent regulator of health and social care. In a recently published independent review of the care we manage, the CQC state, ‘People were supported to have maximum choice and control of their lives and staff supported them in the least restrictive way possible and in their best interests.’
Our live-in home carers are thoroughly vetted, compassionate, empathetic, and professional. And our unique carer matching service makes sure they are a great fit, empowering you with greater choice, transparency, control, and continuity of care.
In What Ways Are Hometouch Carers the Best?
A good live-in carer needs to be capable and compassionate. But our selection process and training don’t stop there.
Hometouch live-in carers are trained to minimize identified risks. This includes keeping the home tidy and hygienic and making sure the client is eating well and takes their medication on time and correctly.
Hometouch carers bring unique expertise to the job. From trained PEG feeders to master crossword solvers, we will pair you with the carer that best meets your needs and your personality. After all, a great live-in carer provides far more than clinical support. They are a friendly and reassuring presence so that you don’t have to go through the hard times alone.
If you are considering a live-in carer for you or your loved one, please make sure the care agency is regulated by the CQC. And read their reviews of the agency.

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.
