Live-in Care

24 hour around the clock support in the comfort of your own home.

What is Live-in Care?

LIve-in Care is the complete and holistic alternative to residential care. When the care and support needs exceed around 6-8 hours a day, it may become necessary to have someone present in the house throughout the day and night to provide that reassurance and a helpful presence. Often this can prove a very cost-effective way to be supported by comparison to hourly care.

Staying at home with treasured memories is the choice that we believe everyone should have and our aim is to make this possible. We hope that we are able to provide you with the solution you need and deserve.

Live-in care is provided for individuals who need help throughout the day and sometimes at night. Live-in carers will live their lives alongside their clients in their homes and will be on hand to assist with every area of everyday life.

Funding Options 

How to fund long-term care is an important consideration when looking at care at home options. Depending on your personal circumstances, there may be public funding or benefits available to you, or other finance options.

Many people seeking care for themselves or family members can easily become overwhelmed with the financing options available including those from the State.
