For many of us, the thought of putting loved ones into a care home makes us feel guilty. In our experience, most people want to stay in their own home, surrounded by their personal comforts and memories, but is homecare affordable? Home care is in fact much more affordable than many people think. It is estimated that in England, approximately 27% of hours of private home care is purchased on a live-in basis.
What is live-in care?
Live-in care is where you, a family member or friend receive full-time around the clock care at home, as opposed to just a few visits throughout the day. It is ideal for those needing that extra bit of support and who will benefit from someone being there day and night.
How do I arrange live-in care and what packages are available to me?
At Firstpoint Homecare, our specialist carers will meet with you or your loved one to ensure you are comfortable with the carer being placed with you. Our live-in care is the perfect alternative to a care home. Care is extremely personal to each and every individual, and because of that we don’t offer a “one size fits all” package, our support is always tailored to you. Whether you want us for one hour per week, one hour per day, overnight, you simply tell us your requirements and we will meet them.
If you would like to arrange a no obligation home visit, need more information on our care services, or would like general advice and guidance on funding, integrated care and hospital discharges, please get in touch today.
