What is live-in care?

Live-in care has become a popular alternative for individuals or couples who need support in their daily lives and would like to stay in their own home. And who wouldn't?

This section is meant to help you decide whether live-in care might be right for you. We explain what live-in care is, what it can help you achieve, and how it compares to residential care.

24 care at home – what is live-in care?

Live-in care is a life-changing service whereby a carer comes to live with you, in your own home, and is available to help out day and night. Whether they support with complex conditions like Dementia, Parkinson’s, MS or Epilepsy, or whether they take on responsibility for daily household chores, live-in carers can make a substantial difference to people’s lives.

For many people, companionship is an important reason to opt for live-in care: it can be reassuring to know that there is someone there, for yourself or your loved one, who can keep an eye out and make sure everything runs smoothly.

We find that live-in care is becoming more and more popular in Herefordshire, and for good reason. While the costs of live-in care can be in a similar range as the costs of a care or nursing home, most people prefer live-in care – by some way – because it enables them to stay in their own home.

"We are so grateful that the Kemble at Home and support staff came into our lives we could not have looked after Dad at home as well as we did without them. Thank you all so much."
