How are carers selected?
Live-in care companies all use their own processes for matching clients to carers. Some ask clients to carry out questionnaires regarding their interests, hobbies, food preferences etc, in order to match them with a carer. Some live-in care agencies have ‘Digital CVs’, so you can find out more about their carers online.
What can carers help with?
Live-in carers are on-hand night and day for whenever your relative needs any type of support. The duties of a live-in carer are not fixed, and are likely tochange from one day to the next. Providing support at home 24/7 can include help with taking medication, preparing meals, personal care, as well as providing companionship. Live-in care assistants can provide as much or as little help as their client wants them to.
What hours do they work?
Live-in carers are expected to work between 8 and 10 hours a day, but be on hand all day and night in case they are needed. The 8 to 10 hours refers tothe amount of time they are expected to spend carrying out their key duties.
What if my relative has a specialist condition?
Care companies can provide specialist live-in carers for people living with medical conditions such as Dementia, Parkinson’s, and Multiple Sclerosis. These specialist live-in carers are trained in providing care for people with these conditions.
Will the home need to be adapted for a live-in carer?
Preparing your elderly relative's home for a live-in carer does not always require a lot of effort – particularly if there is a spare bedroom available to them. On the most part, live-in carers for the elderly just need access to standard facilities that they will share with your relative.
