Care Your Way in the Comfort of Your Own Home
We have a dedicated live-in care team ready to listen and understand your requirements so that we can provide you with a live-in service that is tailored to your needs. From general housekeeping, meal preparation and companionship through to personal care and more complex needs, Novus Care can help. We know that choosing to have care delivered in your own home can be a daunting task and that’s why we are here to guide you through the process, every step of the way.
Why Choose Live-In Care?
Home is where the heart is and it’s where we feel at our most comfortable. So it makes sense that as we get older and in need of a little more help with remaining independent, Live-in care is becoming more and more popular as an alternative to Residential Care. There are lots of reasons why people choose to have live-in care. It could be that you need a little companionship and help with running the household, or you may need some additional personal care. We are also able to provide help for more complex needs or in situations where convalescence is required after a hospital stay. We regularly provide respite care for family carers and we work with other professionals to provide palliative care.

Benefits of Live-In Care
Live-in care allows you to live your life according to your own preferences in the comfort of your own home. It can provide you with a sense of security and offers reassurance to family members that someone will always be on hand to provide help if required. There is no upheaval of a move, it allows you to remain close to your family and friends, you are able to keep any pets you may have and you can maintain any hobbies or other interests that are important to you.
Each live-in care plan is tailored to the individual and thus you will receive a one to one personal service completely designed with your unique requirements in mind. This will take into account your regular routine, any likes or dislikes and any other specific needs.
Dementia / Parkinson’s / Alzheimer’s
For anyone suffering from any of these or any other mental health issues, routine can be of the utmost importance. Being able to receive care whilst at home in familiar surroundings with established routines can provide crucial stability and often has a significant impact on quality of life.
Live-in care allows palliative clients to spend their last days in the comfort of their own homes without any visitation restrictions imposed on family members and can help to relieve some of the pressure on friends and family at an already difficult time.
Live-in care allows you to change your care plan as frequently as is required to do so. Unlike with residential homes, relatives have the freedom and flexibility to visit and call at any time without any restrictions being imposed.
Live-in care often works out to be at a similar or lesser cost than residential care when taking into account the number of hours of one to one care being provided, particularly in the case of couples.
Some of the duties you can expect your live in care worker to help you with:
- Meal Preparation
