If you love living in Lancashire as much as we do, you’ll know that it’s the best place in the world to call home. From Accrington to Whitworth, we love serving the people of our county, and providing live-in care services Lancashire wide.

If you, or your loved one, wants to stay at home rather than go into residential care, why not consider live-in care and invite a carer to stay in your home?

How can live-in care help?

One of the hardest things about caring for someone is noticing their vulnerability. You find yourself doing more and more to support your loved one in their day to day life, but feel there’s always something more you could be doing if only time and commitments allowed. It can be so frustrating! You’re not on your own though. Caring Hands’ live-in carers are available to provide support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Some of the real benefits of our live-in care services include:

Assistance with care needs

For many of the people we support, they simply want someone there to lend a hand. This might be for personal care, reminders about medication, or assistance to stay mobile – over and above what a visiting carer would be able to provide, especially overnight, when they’re more at risk of trips or falls.

Companionship and familiarity

A live-in carer will get to know your loved one on a one-to-one basis. They’ll be a familiar face, learning how their client thinks and sees the world. They’ll learn their routines and support them in their day to day life. This allows them to keep their independence for as long as possible.

Meeting dietary needs

For many vulnerable people, it’s easy to forget or ignore meal times. It’s particularly important if diet is something which must be carefully controlled. Soft textured food and modified textures are increasingly common, but also add a level of complexity, which is where a live-in carer with the experience of such requirements can be a real boon.

Helping around the home

One of our most frequently requested services is simply for home help. A live-in carer can provide home help services which ensure that the home remains comfortable, clean and safe. Our carers can help keep on top of tasks such as feeding pets, putting on washing, or just assisting with administrative tasks like arranging a day out, or making sure bills are paid.

Specialist dementia care

If you need dementia care at home, from Preston to Poulton, Caring Hands can help. We know that dementia is something very different to simply ageing and our nursing care services Lancashire-wide will ensure that your loved one receives the specialist assistance they need. Our carers have the training and experience required to help those with dementia or Alzheimer’s.
