The benefits of live-in care
Happiness and Independence
Surrounded by the people, things and places you love. Live-in care means you don’t have to separate from everything that is familiar to you. As much as you are able, you can continue to sleep in your own bed, enjoy the food you like served on your own plates, keep your pets, enjoy your garden and entertain family and friends. With the help of your carer you can continue to live life to the full.
Better Health and Mobility
With 24/7 live-in care, you are likely to be healthier than if you go to a care home or a nursing home. Professor Dawn Skelton (Professor of Ageing and Health at Glasgow Caledonian University) says “the data certainly suggests that live-in care is associated with fewer falls than seen in residential care, perhaps because of the opportunities to be more active and engaged in self care and the ethos of moving more, and sitting less.”
You are the centre of your live-in care plan – even the best care homes are only able to provide up to 3 hours one to one care a day. Live-in care means you are supported around the clock, whether you’d like a walk in the sunshine, a game of cards, or some time spent with friends, your carer is there to help you do these things.

One-to-one support for you
Home care provides one-to-one support to give you the best care possible. Having the full undivided attention of your carer has many benefits for your health and wellbeing. As such, the level of support live-in or hourly home care offers is unrivalled by the care you would receive in a residential care home.
A staggering 97 percent of people do not want to go into a care home if they become ill or less able to cope.
Who are our live-in carers?
Our carers are just that, people who care. We have an intensive recruitment process but most of all we are looking for people who have the right caring attitude to become a live-in carer. All Christies Carers are required to undertake a two-week residential training programme to equip them with the skills necessary to become an outstanding live-in carer.
