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 home 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.

What are the benefits of live-in care?

Live-in care is the perfect option for many, it minimises the changes to a person’s life, which can often cause distress and upset. It enables them to retain their independence, freedom and live how they wish, in the comfort of their own home. Often familiar surroundings, help reinforce a sense of security and allows them to continue to live within their local community among friends and neighbours. 24/7 support reduces the risk of incidents such as falls and therefore reduces the likelihood of hospital admissions.
