Live-in care in Hereford
Hereford is our home town, and we are very fond of it. For more than 25 years, we have been supporting people in Hereford and surrounding areas to live the life they want. Many of our live-in carers have grown up in Herefordshire and they know the area well.
Live-in care is becoming increasingly popular in Herefordshire, and for good reason. Live-in care is a life-changing service, and we are very proud of it. A carer comes to live with you, in your own home, and is available around the clock to help out with all things big and small.
As such, live-in care is a viable alternative to residential care. It enables individuals or couples to stay in their own home, with their own things around them, in an environment where they feel safe, comfortable, and at home.
How does live-in care in Hereford work?
One of the reasons our clients like live-in care so much is that it enables them to create a real bond with the person who comes to live with them. We will introduce you to our live-in carers, and you can choose the person(s) you trust and believe you would get on with.
Because your live-in carer shares your home, a comfortable, easy routine often establishes quickly. You can decide directly with your live-in carer how you would like to work and what you like your days to look like. Our live-in carers often stay with the same person for a long time, and bonds are formed that may last a lifetime.
You will have your own named contact person in the office, who makes sure you have everything you need. They touch base regularly to discuss how things are going, whether you are happy and whether there is anything we can do to help. If you have any questions, you always know that your contact person is just a phone-call away.
The benefits of live-in care in Hereford
Because your live-in carer is available day and night to support you, you can live your life as you would normally do. Your live-in carer can help you get out and about, they can accompany you to social events, join you for some fresh air or on a trip into town to get a cup of coffee or run some errands.
Moreover, it can be reassuring to know that there is someone around at night, who can help out where needed – for instance to make sure the house is prepared for the night.
With live-in care, people are often able to come home much quicker after a stay in the hospital. Rather than recovering in the hospital, you can have your own live-in carer with you as long as you want to make sure you can spend all your energy recovering.
Live-in care can also be a viable option if you are looking for some respite from caring for a loved one. We can come and help out, whether it is for a few days or a couple of weeks or months, to give you the time to take a break or tend other responsibilities.
