Live in Care
Helping people to maintain their independence in their own home
We provide many types of live-in care services, including short term and long term home care for the elderly, respite care and care for dementia.
We are constantly evolving to better meet the needs of our clients and their families. One of our well trained, DBS checked Live in Carers’ can accompany your loved ones to family weddings, or take them away for a weekend break.
They can be a friend and companion to the able bodied, or provide quality home care for those with Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s disease and other long-term conditions.
No matter your requirements, you can rest assured that each and every live-in carer is appropriately skilled and experienced and will fit in effortlessly with your home life and situation.
Short Term Care
Short-term home care for the elderly is available whether it’s for a few days or a few weeks. This may be necessary to provide 24-hour live-in care for a loved one who needs more support, or if you are planning a holiday and require care cover while you are away.
Convalescence care, or family carer replacement is sometimes necessary following surgery, or for older adults with an illness that requires more time to recover before returning to independence. We take great care in providing home care assistance that is tailored to individual needs and adapted as your loved one returns to health.
Respite care is usually short term, and provides a much-needed break for many family carers. We understand how important it is that your loved one receives the best possible in-home care while you are away. We take the time to tailor a personalised care plan for each of our clients, taking into account specific needs, daily routines, and preferences.
Long Term Care
Home care for the elderly in their own home is a popular long-term alternative to residential care homes. The cost of care at home may also be less than you think, comparing favourably with care home fees.
Our Live-In Care Services include:
- Companionship and escorting to social activities/trips to friends
- Freshly cooked meals
- Providing prompts and reminders around medication and appointments
- Care and assistance in your own home
- Laundry, shopping and light housework
- Support with hobbies
- Social care support and encouragement
- Making appointments, maintaining records, keeping diaries
- Doing what we can to ensure clients maintain a healthy, happy life with choice and independence
Care For Elderly Couples
Live-in care for elderly couples is necessary to enable couples to stay together in the comfort of their own homes. It is often a less costly option than joint residential care, and is a popular service for clients who do not wish to be separated when further support is needed.
Care For Disabled Adults
Live-in care for disabled adults enables them to focus on their abilities and on living a full and independent life. We pride ourselves on being able to offer private home care for a range of illnesses and disabilities, investing significant time into developing a personalised care plan on a case-by-case basis.
A YCAS carer will provide reassuring continuity, with all the comforts of home, where life can go on with a reliable normality. Our carers know that a client’s home is his or her domain and that their job is to make home life fit every changing need.
Bespoke Live-In Care
Each carer is committed to providing a bespoke live-in care and support service that’s tailored to the individual needs of each client. That means YCAS can provide the right person for a range of needs. Whether it is for the elderly, those who require dementia care, those living with a long-term condition, those needing end-of-life care, or disabled adults of any age.
It means our clients can stay in their own well-loved surroundings, maintain contact with friends and neighbours, keep pets and continue to live life to their own routine, doing what they want, when they want to.
A carefully chosen live in carer, matched to a client’s needs and nature, soon becomes part of the fabric of their day.
