Live-In care Services
Live-in care provides 24-hour support to people in their own homes, allowing them to continue to live life the way that they choose.
To acknowledge that you are struggling with day-to-day activities of normal life is not an easy thing to do and here at Cavell Healthcare, we very often see situations where people have put on a brave face around loved ones, as they are too proud or ashamed to admit that they are struggling to cope.
However, there are some subtle signs that may indicate a relative is not coping. For example, if a loved one is looking unkempt, especially if they previously presented with a clean and tidy appearance. This may ring alarm bells as it could suggest they are struggling with personal care due to mobility issues or confusion. Maintaining personal hygiene is important for health and wellbeing, to prevent illness and infection.
It is also important to note that some people who require assistance with personal care do not need a live-in carer, as they may only need support with one or two daily activities.
About Live-In Care
When Live-In Care May Be Required
Signs that a relative would benefit from around the clock care in a familiar setting include:
- Frequent falls and an inability to get up from the floor
- Wandering, agitation and confusion, such as in the later stages of dementia
- Concerns for safety such as hobs left on, doors left open, bath filled with scalding hot water etc.
- Restless nights, putting the individual more at risk of suffering an accident
Care At Home Over Residential Care
Live-in care is a much-preferred alternative to placing someone in a residential care home setting, which can cause undue stress and anxiety.
Cavell Healthcare works with families to empower their loved one to live safely in their own home and lead as independent a lifestyle as possible, whilst receiving the necessary care they require.
