Live-in care in London

Looking for a Live-in Care service in London?

Live-in care allows people to receive round-the-clock care and build genuine friendships with their Carers in the comfort of their own home. If you are looking for live-in care in London then no matter what your requirements, you will be able to find the right Carer to meet these.

If you’re new to finding a Live-in Carer, the normal agreement is that the Carer is given a room in your house and is on hand to provide care around the clock, bar a 2-hour break in the day. During this 2-hour break, dependent on care needs, some people choose to organise cover with a home care agency.

Below is a list of approved care services that provide live-in care in London. To begin your search, get in touch with a provider to discuss your requirements. Most care agencies will want to find out about your personal interests and hobbies – this allows the agency to match Live-in Carers with similar interests to you. If English is not your first language, then you can state a preference for a Carer who can converse in your native tongue.

The live-in care agency will then put forward suitable candidates for interviews. The normal process is that you will schedule an interview with the Live-in Carer at your own home. When you have found a candidate that you are happy with then you can go on and agree on a contract with the agency.

The cost of live-in care averages at £1,014 in the London area but will depend upon the individual care needs of the person and the care provider. Some people may be eligible for funding support from their local council if their assets are assessed as being below £23,250. If you think you may fit the eligibility, we recommend that you contact your council to arrange a Financial Assessment as soon as possible.

For help and support finding a live-in care company in London then please call TrustedCare’s team of specialist Care Advisers who will be happy to talk you through the process and introduce you to suitable services.
