What Will a Live-In Carer do?
The support a carer provides will vary greatly depending on the bespoke care plan in place. Generally, live-in carers will help with:
- Mobility and personal safety
- Personal care (running a bath, dressing, bathing, going to the toilet etc.)
- Managing medication
- Shopping and cooking
- Housework (laundry and other light domestic duties)
- Pet care
- Personal administration
- Driving where applicable
Their constant presence in the client’s home also provides companionship, emotional support and peace of mind.
As well as this general care and support we can provide live-in services for more complex healthcare needs. This includes things such as dementia, post-operative or convalescent, sensory loss, stroke and much more.
Unfortunately, we are unable to provide services to clients with spinal injury.
“I wanted to express my enormous appreciation of the care that Oxford Aunts provided my mother over the space of six years. We were immensely impressed by the professionalism of the organisation and soon came to realise that we could have 100% confidence in the quality of their carers, the training and constant support they offered them and their total reliability in the provision of continuous cover.”
