Benefits of Live-in Care

Local events. Familiar faces. Community is important to everyday life. With Live-in Care, you or your loved one will stay in the St Albans area.
You’ll stay in control of your own routine and make the big and small decisions about everyday life. Family and friends can also visit whenever you choose.
Live with a spouse
Staying together is important for many couples in later life. Avoid the separation of residential care and save money by having a Live-in Carer move in.
You don’t have to say goodbye to your pet. Whether you’re a dog or cat person, our Live-in Carers can even help with feeds, walks and visiting the vet.
Living alone can be hard but moving to a care home can be overwhelming. A regular Care Worker or Live-in Carer provides company and privacy.
Peace of mind
Live-in Care provides peace of mind and reassurance. Our care monitoring app even lets loved ones track care in real time.
Unlike most other care, Live-in Care is dedicated to one client or a couple. That means round-the-clock undivided support.
Moving to a care home can be disruptive. Stay in the comfort of your own home and avoid stress from selling your family home.
Live-in Care in St Albans can be cost-effective, especially for couples compared against care home fees for two people.
People receiving Live-in Care have half as many hip fractures as those who are living in a care home.1
We’re passionate about making life easier so arranging care involves only three simple steps. To get started, give us a call or send us an email. We’ll then arrange a free assessment to discuss your needs before starting your care. We’ll guide you through the process to keep things simple and as stress-free as possible.
Live-in Carers have one main purpose – moving in to your home to make life easier for you and your loved ones. How we achieve this varies from client to client, and could include anything from making a cup of tea or preparing a meal to attending hospital appointments with you or providing specialist care for conditions like dementia.

That means we even try to match your personalities, hobbies and interests. We’ll meet you initially to learn more about you or your loved one and we’ll keep your preferences in mind, such as whether you want a male or female live-in carer.
When do they take time off?
Our carers have different working patterns; some work two weeks and then have two weeks off. Others work 4-6 weeks and then take 2-4 weeks off. When you enquire about Live-in Care with us, we will discuss the options available to you and create a care plan that suits your lifestyle. This is then kept under constant review so that we can be sure your care package continues to work for you.
How are your Teams checked?

How is Live-in Care monitored?
We are fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission to ensure we provide quality care. In addition, we’re proud to have partnered with Birdie Care, an innovative care technology that enables us to digitally log, track and monitor the support we provide.
Our carers are guided by the Birdie App to instantly make notes, record medications and flag concerns during visits so nothing is overlooked. The Birdie Family App enables family members to have full visibility at any time about how care is being delivered, with the client’s consent.
