Live-in care in Plymouth

Are you or a relative struggling to accept needing care?

Having a Carer come live with you in Plymouth is an increasingly popular option, as it allows you to stay in the comfort of your own home whilst having your care needs tending to. The cost of live-in care is similar to the cost of a care home; when you consider that for this cost you are getting a dedicated Carer 24/7, it makes it a very appealing option.

On average, live-in care in Plymouth costs £1,014 per week but depends upon the individual company and the level of needs a person has. Some people will be eligible for Local Authority funding where the council helps you to cover your care costs. To find out whether you meet the criteria, contact your Local Council to arrange a Financial Assessment.

When choosing a live-in Carer there are a few things to be considered. It is essential that you feel at ease with your chosen Carer as they will be living alongside you in Plymouth. When talking to any potential live-in care providers it is important that you make it clear exactly what you’re looking for in a Carer. The provider will ask you to specify what things you need support with and find out a little bit about your beliefs and values. This will enable them to put forward Carer’s who are not only able to meet your care needs but are also a good cultural fit.

Once you have chosen a Carer they will move into your home - it is normally required that they are given their own bedroom. Your Carer will be on hand to help you throughout the day and night; they are entitled to a 2-hour break per day but this can be taken at a mutually agreed time. Your Carer will be able to help you with a range of tasks, such as: personal care, dressing, domestic chores, meal preparation and getting out and about in Plymouth.
