Live-in care from SureCare provides greater long-term support

Change Text Size A A A

Staying in your own home for as long as possible is becoming a massive priority for many older people and those with particular needs. With our ageing population rapidly increasing, live-in care has become one of the fastest rising services in the care sector today.

As a result, SureCare has made significant strides in offering live-in care services to people up and down the country. Through this, we strive to give our service users greater flexibility in the type of high quality home care they can expect to receive.

Up until recently, typical care services have largely been provided through regular home visits. This means that those requiring further round-the-clock assistance have often needed to move into a care home to get the support they need.

However, with greater access to live-in care services now available, care homes are declining in popularity. Maintaining a sense of independence is vital to many people today, as well as remaining in the comfort of their own homes. This is why many service users across the country are opting for services that allow them to receive dedicated care at home for much longer.

What is live-in care?

The typical duties of a care worker are to provide support for various daily tasks. These are usually carried out during a couple of short visits at set times throughout the day. However, a live-in care worker can tend to your needs – big or small – at virtually any time whenever help is needed.

With assistance available around-the-clock, a live-in care service can help you first thing in the morning, during the day and when getting ready for bed at night. You’ll also get to build up a strong relationship with your dedicated care worker, allowing you to understand each other’s routines and connect on a friendly and personal level too.

Because of the live-in nature of the service, you would need to have a spare room available in your home to suitably accommodate your care worker. As they will be staying with you full-time, it’s also important to ensure they can make themselves feel at home so they are comfortable in their surroundings each day.

Your live-in care worker might only stay with you for a certain period of time before they take a holiday or rotate shifts with somebody else. Make sure that you or your loved ones are prepared for any changes in your service as it can be difficult to say goodbye to someone you’ve grown fond and to welcome someone new into your home.

Why now?

The last 20 years or so have seen some of the biggest shifts in home care provisions and the sector is continuing to evolve and adapt to the modern world. Thanks to advances in technology, people have been able to benefit from new services that wouldn’t have necessarily been possible in the past.

With a wide range of digital devices available, more and more workers are becoming able to do their jobs remotely. This allows live-in care workers to keep on top of their progress reports and stay in touch with their main office team using their phone, tablet or laptop any time of the day or night.

As care homes can only support a limited capacity, it’s difficult for them to accommodate new residents – a real problem for them as our ageing population continues to grow. Live-in care provides a modern and flexible solution that suits the wants and needs of service users today, helping it to become a growing trend throughout the UK.
