Short term live-in care – Here for you when you need a break
If you need to take time away, we’ll connect you to a live-in carer you can trust to care the way you would.
Supporting an elderly loved one can sometimes get too much, and it’s completely normal to feel this way.
According to Carers UK, 63% of family carers are worried about continuing to care without a break, and 74% feel exhausted as a result of looking after someone they love.
It’s important to have time and space to look after your own wellbeing – whether this means a weekend away, spending time with friends, or simply catching up on some sleep. However, we get that this often feels easier said than done.
We’re here to help. We can provide an experienced short-term carer to move in with your loved one, and help with anything from getting washed and dressed, to preparing meals and looking after the home.
Care can be arranged for as little as three days at a time, and means you can enjoy a bit of a break with the complete peace of mind that your loved one is safe and happy, with someone there to care for them .
If you’d like to find out more about arranging short-term live-in care, give us a call.
How does it work?
It takes a lot to put your loved one in the care of someone new, we get that. It’s why we’ll always take your lead to arrange care you’re comfortable with.
- Getting to know you – Give our care specialists a call – they’ll learn as much as they can about your situation, and work out an arrangement that best supports your loved one’s needs.
- Finding the right carer – We believe every family deserves the right carer, every-time. We’ll connect you to a skilled, fully vetted carer who’s not only a safe pair of hands, but a friendly face too.
- Providing peace of mind – On your carer’s first day, they’ll set aside plenty of time to get to know your loved one, and how they like things to be done. If you’d like regular updates from your carer while you’re away, we’ll do this in a way that works for you.
