Live-in care can be appropriate for a range of needs. Whether it is to care for a chronic or complex illness, or if you or a loved one can no longer live alone unsupported. If living with dementia for instance, live-in care can be a preferable choice.
When you decide that live-in care is right for you, our job is to find someone who can best meet your needs and that you’ll really enjoy having around.
All Vow care workers are fully trained and have the right personality to look after our customers, but not everyone can be a live-in carer – many have their own families to look after too. So our specialist live-in teams are highly experienced people who can commit dedicated time to you.
Sharing your home is a big step. So we match interests and personalities and let you get to know one another first. After two weeks we carry out a review to make sure it’s working for you.
Matching people takes time. We start by meeting you to learn more about you, your interests, your care needs and preferences. We try hard to match people with similar hobbies and to satisfy your preferences – perhaps you want a male or female care worker depending on your personal care requirements?
Together we agree a care plan that covers your needs and how you wish to be looked after. Together we review your plan to check it still works for you.
We then set up a two-week trial and your new carer moves in. After this trial period, we review the service carefully with you to ensure that it’s working the way you want and agree any necessary adjustments to your care plan.
Your Right to Respect, your privacy, dignity, independence and security are always top of our list. So our carers:
Are welcomed by you and never intrude
Preserve your self-respect
Give you space to be yourself
Keep you safe when you need them to
If at any time you feel it’s not working the way you want, just tell us how you feel so we can help.
