How does live-in care work?
Live-in care complements your way of life, daily routines and supports you to continue living in your own home.
A live-in carer is dedicated solely to supporting your unique situation; they assist and support with all activities and aspects of daily living, from housekeeping, cooking and companionship to personal care and assistance with medication.
With the support and devotion of one-to-one care, all aspects of care can be supported and managed in the home and assistance provided for those with dementia, physical disabilities or long-term illnesses, including end of life care.

Why choose live-in home care and what are the benefits?
We have seen first-hand that one to one live-in care really works; we've had clients return home after spending time in a residential care home or following hospital admission and have seen how they once again thrive in their own home.
- One to one care:
Live-in care ensures someone is always with you, offering a dedicated service and peace of mind.
- Home comforts:
Enjoy the benefits of home cooking, keep your pets and possessions around you in familiar surroundings.
Share conversation, plan visits and outings, enjoy hobbies together.
- Daily routine:
Maintain your own way of life, independence, daily routine and visitors.
Remain in the care of your family GP, part of your local community and close to neighbours and family.
- Hand-picked care:
We meet with you in your home to discuss your specific needs and preferences so that we can match a carer based on their skills, experience and personality.
Live-in care can be a cost-effective care solution when compared to a care home, especially for couples.
"Thank you so much for all your help and care. Jane has been a god-send. Nothing has been too much for her. The house has never been tidier and all has been done in the very best atmosphere amid much laughter. I really am well on the way to complete recovery from the operation."
Mrs B, Mayfield East Sussex
