Choosing to stay in their own home and have the support of a live-in carer is a choice more and more people are making these days, but the challenges of finding the right person for the job can be significant for the uninitiated. Guardian Carers can offer you all the guidance and advice you need in this situation, because as a long-established premium provider of in-home care, we are experts in matching the right carer to the needs of our clients.
We are able to offer many different care services, all of which can be added to your individually designed care package. This means that each client has a personalised plan, so their exact needs and wishes are met. We have access to many wonderful in-home carers and always take the time to make the very best match possible. However, you always have the final decision as to who will support you and are free to interview pre-screened candidates yourself if you wish.
Throughout your engagement, we will be here to offer any help or guidance requested, answer queries, or make any changes you may decide on. We can also supply you with a sample contract, help you register with HMRC to organise payments to the carer, and help with payroll services too. We work hard to make sure the entire process is as stress free as it possibly can be for all involved.
Live-in carers can generally help with a wide variety of tasks, depending on the exact needs of the client. In most cases, the duties required are discussed and planned for between you and the carer. In general, live-in carers can help with personal care (washing, dressing, teeth cleaning, makeup etc), shopping, preparing and/or cooking meals, laundry, general tidying and cleaning, pet care, help with taking medication, and ironing.
The carer can also provide social companionship, accompanying you on social visits, or trips to the cinema and so forth. A live-in carer can easily transform the life of their client by giving them back the freedom to do the things they enjoy.
Perhaps the most obvious benefit is that you can better hold on to your independence, making living at home in familiar and comfortable surroundings a manageable prospect. Live-in carers provide a safety net for you too, being around for both small things and in the case of an emergency. They help to promote a healthier lifestyle by cooking good food. This will be in accordance with your dietary needs and personal preferences and you can have as much or as little control as you wish in the kitchen.
Your carer will also encourage exercise and help you to stay mentally alert, stimulated, and fulfilled. Finally, having a live-in carer boosts the confidence of any client, making them feel more secure 24/7.
