Tulip Live-in care typically provide carers that offer companionship and housekeeping, help around the house, washing, cooking and peace of mind.. Housekeeping can be anything from washing up to cleaning, tidying and a full laundry service.
Above and beyond Companionship a live-in carer offers mobility assistance, security and piece of mind around the house. There is always someone there to help out and assist you.
Some of the conditions we provide live-in care for are:
- Mobility assistance
Live-in care is also used for…
Clients who need help throughout the day and reassurance at night
Short-term residential care, which gives respite for the family
Breathing space when assessing Care Home options
Support on discharge from hospital
Cover during a permanent carer’s holiday
A live-in carer will require his / her own bedroom and while available for nearly all the day, it is usual for a live-in carer to have 2 hours time off in any period of 24 hours and will typically work between 5 and 7 days per week – the timing and details of which are agreed before the start of the assignment.
The cost of live-in care depends upon the type of care / companionship needed. In all cases, however, the client provides accommodation (a separate room) and food. This generally means that live-in carers will charge a lower daily or hourly rate than their non live-in counterparts.
Live-in care is an excellent, cost effective alternative to a residential care home or nursing home and enables you to retain control and independence.
