As we look to set up your live-in interim care service, we will aim to match you or your relative with a live-in carer who shares some of your interests or hobbies, and whose company you will enjoy. We want our clients to feel relaxed and happy with their live-in carer, so compatibility is vital. If, in the unlikely event, you feel your live-in carer isn’t right for you we will aim to find someone more suitable.
We will visit you/your relative to complete an assessment with absolutely no obligation to proceed. During this visit we will create a bespoke care plan which will involve carefully documenting all of yours/your relative’s healthcare needs. We will work with any professionals involved in yours/your relative’s care, including understanding the discharge plan if you/your relative are currently in hospital. We will also ensure we are fully aware of your wishes and preferences. All of our live-in carers know the importance of never taking over your home or doing more than you would wish for them to do.
To ensure comprehensive and safe support, all of our live-in carers are fully trained and vetted to give you complete peace of mind. Many of our live-in carers have extensive experience in providing interim care and bring a wealth of knowledge and good practice to their interim care provision.
Should you choose to continue with our live-in care beyond the interim care period, we will look to keep the same carer with you for as long as possible (our carers usually remain with their clients for 8-12 weeks at a time), before going through our usual careful matching process to introduce you to a new carer.
