Live-in Care in Chichester
Very few things in life are more difficult than caring for your ageing relatives, especially if they’ve been struck with a debilitating illness or a rare physical ailment. Even the healthiest of the elderly require a fair amount of care, and in today’s busy and unpredictable world, not many people can afford to provide them with that care on their own.
Hometouch’s mission is to link our clients up with the best live-in care professionals in Chichester, without compromising the quality of care for the sake of cutting costs or splitting our carers’ time between multiple patients. Our caregivers have years of experience under their belts and are thoroughly vetted -- by choosing to enlist our services, you’re ensuring the safety and comfort of your loved ones.
If you’re looking for a full-time caregiver for your ageing family member, don’t hesitate to reach out to us at 020 3870 4220 or via the Hometouch Care Advisory contact form. Our representatives will be happy to discuss the optimal care plan for your relative.
While quite a few elderly care agencies have established themselves on the British market, Hometouch remains one of the most patient-focused institutions not only in Chichester, but also in all of the United Kingdom. The founder of Hometouch, Dr Jamie Wilson, decided to make it his life’s mission to improve the approach towards elderly care in the UK.
Our database consists of hundreds of live-in carers in the Chichester area and thousands more across the entire country. Once you provide us with the details about your relative and their particular conditions, we’ll be able to narrow it down to just a few professionals who are experienced in handling similar cases and are able to provide your family members with the care they need and deserve. Of course, the final choice regarding the caregiver is yours.
Care Models at Hometouch
Depending on your own availability and needs, you can choose between two basic care models available at Hometouch: introductory care and regulated care. The core experience remains the same: we match you and your relative with a live-in care professional.
The difference lies in the approach to everything else outside of the carer’s job. In the introductory model, Hometouch matches you with the right carer and stays out of the rest of the process, meaning that formulating a care plan, supervising the caregiver, and providing them with certain vital resources is your responsibility.
The regulated care model, on the other hand, takes some of that weight off your shoulders: our representatives, alongside independent observers from the CQC (Care Quality Commission), will provide the carer with the optimal care plan for your relative, as well as carry out routine visits to ensure the quality of the caregiver’s services.
Regardless of the choice you end up making, you can rest assured that Hometouch’s priority will be providing the best possible care for your family member. If you have any questions regarding our practices, feel free to get in touch with us via the contact form.
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.
