We know that arranging care for your loved one can be very stressful so we are with you every step of the way.

How it works

Faq

A live in care  is a trained experienced professional who is hired to come to stay with a client and support them with their every day living activities.

Yes, live in carers expect to live at their client’s homes .

Typically, carers stay for three to four weeks at a time before taking a break. During the period they’re away we’ll arrange for a secondary carer to step in. 

Your home carer will need a spare room and will expect a similar standard of accommodation as if they were renting the room. Before their arrival, you should aim to prepare the spare room so it’s a comfortable space in which your live-in carer can retire to.

Live in carers usually take a minimum 2 hour break daily.

A live-in carer is expected to be able to have sufficient rest period during the night time (at least 8 hours’ sleep). If a live-in carer is regularly woken more than twice in the night by the person they are caring for, an additional carer may be needed to cover waking nights .

At the point of enquiry we will ask you whether you or your loved one requires a live in carer that drives. If the answer is yes, we will then match you with a carer that drives.

We offer training to all the carers we work with. However, as an introductory agency, we can’t enforce training. 
 

All of our carers are self employed.
