Live-in care allows a person to stay at home in familiar and relaxed surroundings with one-to-one support from experienced care and support staff. A personalised and individual support plan is created and agreed. All needs and requirements will be based on this person centred and outcome focused individual support plan, which is reviewed regularly, or sooner, depending on your changing needs.
All Live-In Comfort care and support staff are highly experienced at providing support to people whether it’s in their own home, a hospitals and/or a residential setting. Offering a full range of personalised services to meet the needs and requirements for clients who require anything from companionship and housekeeping to clients who require a much higher degree of care and support: (high dependency).
Our qualified and trained advisors, together with the client, their family, friend or representative will conduct a home assessment, called an Individual Support Plan (ISP), to evaluate the level of assistance and support that is required in order for the client to maintain their independence, dignity and respect, whilst remaining in their own surroundings. Once agreed a trained and experienced care and support worker will come and stay with the client, in their home, for a minimum period of two weeks or longer if required.
