Live in Care

Live in care ensures people can remain in the comfort, familiar and secure surroundings of their own home, with no need to relocate to a care home which can entail much upheaval.

Live in care is provided to people who are either living with complex needs who may need nurse-led care, or who are living with a condition that impacts their ability to live well and need support-led care.

A live-in care worker offers constant, round the clock care, supporting a person to remain in their own home, offering a helping hand at a moment’s notice ensuring the person gets the right care at the right time. In addition to assisting with care and support needs, as a live-in care worker you will support with domestic tasks, hobbies, leisure activities as well as being a good companion.


A range of alternative options can be offered to people, whether they need care and support throughout the night which means as a care worker you will sleep during the night but on hand to assist should you be needed. Waking nights can also be an option for those who may need night-time assistance, such as repositioning in bed, managing a ventilation machine, or administering medication.

  • It's a huge responsibility, supporting a customer when they are at their most vulnerable. But you’re part of a team of skilled colleagues, and with advice just a phone call away, you’re never alone and you know that you are making a positive improvement to people's lives.
