Live In Care at Home
Live in Care is the complete and holistic alternative to residential care. Often, when your care and support needs exceed around 6-8 hours a day it may become necessary to have someone present in your home throughout the day and night to provide that reassurance and a helpful presence. Often this can prove a very cost-effective way to be supported by comparison to hourly care.
What is Live-in Care?
Live In care is provided for clients who need help throughout the day and sometimes at night. Live in Carers will live their lives alongside their clients in their homes and will be on hand to assist with every area of every day life.
Live in Care services from Bright Care, while often a long term arrangement can be accessed on a very flexible basis from one day through to indefinitely. Some people use live in care on a permanent basis; some will use it on an ad hoc basis either to provide temporary help while they recover from an illness or to provide respite for a family carer. Some families use us on a temporary cover basis should their main care worker be ill or has a planned holiday.
