24 Hour or Complete Live-in Care

You are here

We can provide an active 24 hour care service for people with more challenging or complex care needs by providing two live-in care workers, one mainly active during the day and the other mainly active at night. This home care service is frequently used by PCTs, who are eligible for CHC funding.

It is also an excellent solution for some people who might otherwise have a lengthier than necessary stay in hospital as it can be used to bridge the patient's reablement. As care is provided in the home by a live-in care worker, it is a truly occupational setting where on-going asessment of the patient's capabilities can be made with reductions in their care package. These can be made in a timely and efficient manner whilst ensuring the patient's safety at all times.

Increasingly, as assessment criteria become more tight, many people are ineligible for funding and private funders are using this service on a respite, periodic or permanent basis especially for relatives who have some form of dementia which has raised the day or night needs beyond that which they can permanently meet.

We have noticed a substantial increase in the number of enquiries we are receiving from the public sector for self-funding clients and this service is also available to them.

The benefits of 24 hour live-in care are:

  • It's costed on a weekly rather than hourly basis, with from £1,550 a week depending on care needs (a similiar service costed on a domiciliary care hourly basis would typically cost  around £2,500 a week
  • The two live-in care workers provide cover for each other's breaks and for double-ups, so there is rarely any need for additional domiciliary care calls (or additional cost)
  • It provides excellent continuity of care
