Live in care enables people to stay in their own home, often as the alternative to a residential care home. It’s also a popular choice for people looking for companionship, as well as also offering the support they need to retain their independence. Offering peace of mind to friends and family, live in care is now often the preferred choice for many people.

A live-in MyLife Assistant will ensure that there is always someone trusted, experienced and well trained around for help and reassurance at anytime of the day or night.

Live-in care provides care and support, as well as the additional benefit of having someone there all of the time for friendship and companionship.

Caring for a loved one can be very rewarding but can also be tiring so it’s important to find the time to recoup and rest. Live in care can be provided over a short term period so that a family carer can get away for a few days every so often, allowing them a well deserved rest safe in that knowledge that their loved one is being looked after in the best possible way.

So why choose live in care?

“My husband was in hospital and I was told to put him in a care home as he didn’t have long to live. Without MyLife I would never of got him home where he belongs and now thrives. It’s like having nurses not just carers, I can relax knowing he is in safe hands”

You might choose a live in care service for long term health conditions such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s or for End of Life care. However, often people chose live in care for other reasons, such as for:

  • General assistance to continue to live independently in their own home
  • Friendship and companionship; in addition to living assistance a MyLife Assistant can become one of the family
  • Short term live in help while recovering from an operation, illness or injury
  • Support for couples to prevent one from going into residential care
  • Respite for family carers to enjoy a holiday or time away

Extras that would make their stay more comfortable include use of the washing machine, a TV and access to the internet. We do require our Assistants to have a couple of hours a day to themselves.
