Live-in care services

24-hour live-in care, tailored to your needs

At Abbots Care, we believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to receive the care they need, in a way that suits them. To us, home is where the heart is, and we’ve made it our mission to support people in the space they’re most comfortable.

We offer live-in care which is tailored to the individual – we don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all-approach – so our Service Users benefit from compassionate, affordable home care that’s unique to them.

What is live-in care?

Live-in care is a type of care that is delivered in a person’s home, by a professional care worker.

For example, 24-hour live-in care provides you with a full-time care worker, who’ll live with you, providing round-the-clock care including assistance with meals, dressing, bathing, shopping, and medications.

So, whether you require round-the-clock specialist care for a complex health condition, or simply need dedicated support for everyday tasks, live-in care services offer assistance tailored to your specific needs.

At Abbots Care, we recruit care workers trained to the highest standards, each devoted to offering a professional, person-centred service. Each of our care workers is friendly, approachable, and highly capable, so you can be rest assured that you’re in good hands.

How live-in care works

Live-in care services offer an alternative to residential care, allowing you to receive the care you need, in the comfort of home. Our services are tailored to the individual, but universal benefits of 24-hour live-in care include:

  • Ability to stay in a comfortable, familiar setting, rather than the upheaval of moving
  • Lower average costs
  • Minimal disruption to your daily life
  • Bespoke 1-2-1 support, tailored to your needs

Live-in care costs: what you need to know

At Abbots Care, we believe that everyone should have access to professional, affordable live-in care services, and we offer a variety of affordable packages, tailored to your needs.

People often assume that live-in care will be too expensive, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, by customising your care, you’ll be able to manage the costs as you’ll only pay for what you need.

And our friendly care advisors will guide you through the process, explaining your options and working with you to build a live-in care package that meets your needs, as well as creating affordable payment plans, allowing you to control every aspect of your live-in care costs.

What’s more, there are number of funding options available, depending on your situation. Your local council will evaluate your circumstances, taking into consideration the level of care that’s needed, before conducting a financial assessment. (Sometimes known as a ‘means test’.) Your benefits, earnings, savings, and assets will be analysed to calculate your eligibility for support with live-in care costs.

To find out more about the means test and your funding options, visit our page on Paying for Home Care.
