What is Live-in Care?

Live-in care is the complete and holistic alternative to residential care. When the care and support needs exceed around 6-8 hours a day, it may become necessary to have someone present in the house throughout the day and night to provide that reassurance and a helpful presence. Often this can prove a very cost-effective way to be supported by comparison to hourly care.

Live-in care is provided for individuals who need help throughout the day and sometimes at night. Live-in carers will live their lives alongside their clients in their homes and will be on hand to assist with every area of everyday life.


A long-term arrangement can be accessed on a very flexible basis from one day through to indefinitely. Some people use live-in care on a permanent basis; some will use it on an ad hoc basis either to provide temporary help while they recover from an illness or to provide respite for a family carer.
