Live-In Care

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. As an alternative to residential care, live-in care provides you with a carer who lives with you at home, supporting your day to day needs. Whether you need help with tasks around the home, with your mobility or medication, we can make your routine manageable and enable you to keep living in comfortable and familiar surroundings.

We know how important it is to live independently and to continue making life choices. With our extensive experience, you’ll notice the difference in the professional support we offer. Read more about choosing 1st 4 Healthcare as your live-in care provider here.

An individual approach to care

Our care is driven by our original ethos – which every individual has the right to remain safe and secure in the comfort of their own home.

Fully flexible live-in care wraps around you and your lifestyle. Our live-in service is one-to-one and provides approximately eight hours of care each day, spread across 24 hours, seven days per week. If you need more than eight hours of care in a 24-hour period, we can provide additional live-in carers to support you through the whole day, as well as overnight.

A proportion of our head office team are also qualified healthcare professionals, such as registered nurses and other experienced industry professionals, so can support our clients as well as our carers, providing medical advice and professional guidance to you in the comfort your own home.

We understand that inviting a carer to live in your home can seem daunting. We’ll match you with someone you feel comfortable with, who understands your routine, your needs and your choices, by using our professional expertise and experience to support you through the whole process.
