I hope that it is clear how life has improved for me since I had live in care. My confidence and manipulative skills have improved enormously. My long term regular carer deserves credit for this, she never takes over or offers to do things unless I ask her. For example, she would leave my make up a while before coming to put it away. While waiting I would try to put the lids back on, now I can do them all and put them back in the box with subsequent improvement in other manipulative tasks. In conclusion, thank you ENA and your carers, you have given me my life back.”
What is live in care?
If you need support at home to enable you to live independently, you may choose to opt for live in care. An alternative to domiciliary care – more commonly known as hourly care – live in care provides you with a care assistant who lives with you at home, supporting your day to day needs. Whether you only need help with tasks around the home, your mobility or medication, or you need specialist care such as tracheostomy care or peg feeding, we can meet your individual needs, making your routine manageable and enabling you to stay living in your own familiar surroundings.
