Live in Carers

What's expected of live in carers in Henley on Thames?

Live-in carers are primarily employed to enable older or mobility impaired care recipients the option of living in their own home. They provide personal care, domestic care and companionship and a sense of security. While not every care recipient has the same needs, these can include help with showering, bathing and using the bathroom as well as dressing and grooming. In the home, carers also cook, clean, hoover, do laundry and shop.

Other aspects of the role may fall under companionship and enabling. Our live-in carers will read to care recipients, take them on mornings out, have conversations and help them visit friends and family. They will also supervise medicine routines and make sure hospital and doctor appointments are kept.

Benefits of a live in carer

For most care recipients, the greatest benefit they experience from having live in care is the ability to remain in their own home. However, there are many more positive aspects. A live-in carer provides peace of mind to both the recipient and their family. It’s easier to keep in contact with a care recipient when the carer is always there to pick up the phone.

Having a carer also means a cleaner home, better standards of hygiene and healthy, home-cooked meals. Most care recipients experience a much higher standard of living once a live-in carer is in place.

Things to do with a live in carer in Henley-on-Thames

Henley-on-Thames is a wonderful part of the country, full of interesting things to do.

  • Nuttfield Place, once home to Lord and Lady Nuttfield, is a favourite with many local residents. In the winter-time, you can explore the house, a perfect time capsule and snapshot of an interesting family. In the summer, its garden draws the crowds with seasonal blooms.
  • The Thames path also provides a great opportunity to get out and about and enjoy some fresh air. No matter what the day or the time of year, avid rowers can be seen getting in their practice.
  • The Warburg nature reserve is another big hit with the locals. Located up in the Chiltern Hills, the reserve is a magnificent place for its wild, remote tranquillity. May and June are the magical months but the autumn colour in October is also not to be missed.
  • Henley on Thames also has a good number of high-end grocers and food shopping options.
