24 Hour Live-in Care
With qualified specialist nurses and care support workers in the Eastbourne and Maidstone areas, our Unity team provides 24 hour live-in care, covering everything from convalescent care and palliative nursing to long-term support for someone who finds it hard to cope at home alone.
Live-in care can be either short or long-term, depending on your needs. If your regular carer is on holiday, or you are recuperating from an illness, you might only need short-term live-in care. If you need support to continue to live independently, you might need longer-term live-in care help.
What Does Live-in Care Involve?
No two people’s needs are the same. If you can’t cope at home alone, your live-in carer will help with things like personal care, for example, helping you wash and getting you ready for bed at night.
Unity’s live-in carers also help with light housework and shopping, and will take you out and about so you can continue to enjoy a social life. Your carers will sleep in your home so you are not left alone overnight. You will normally have more than one live-in carer to cover time off and holidays.
You might need a combination of different types of care. For example, if you have clinical needs you might have a live-in care support worker and regular visits from a home nurse. In the case of palliative care, 24 hour nursing might be needed. In this situation, the nurses don’t live in, but work in shifts to deliver clinical care 24 hours a day.
When you choose Unity, your care package is carefully designed and regularly reviewed by a passionate and professional team, making sure all your clinical and social needs are met.
Benefits of Live-in Care
No matter what age you are, there really is no place like home. Many elderly people choose live-in care instead of moving to a residential home. After leading an independent life, having to give up your home and most of your treasured possessions is a huge wrench. Live-in care is a practical alternative for an elderly person who is finding it difficult to manage at home alone.
The degree of live-in care needed varies from person to person. Some live-in care support workers act as companions, helping out around the house and doing the shopping, light housework and cooking. Other people might need greater support, such as help with personal care or even home nursing.
Live-in care benefits the whole family, not just the person receiving the care. If you have an elderly relative, you can relax knowing they’re safe and being well looked after. If your loved one needs convalescent or palliative care, having that person looked after at home reduces the stresses and strains on the whole family.
Unity’s caring approach and flexible service means you can benefit from the support you need to help you live an independent life. When it comes to live-in care, we take much more than the practical aspects of your care into account. It’s important you not only trust your carers, you must enjoy their company too.
