Care for Me now offer full time live-in care 365 days a year. Our live-in care plans are designed around the client and their home. We believe this can be a more cost effective and better solution than clients trying to adapt to a nursing home environment and routine. Receiving care at home also reduces the risk of coming into contact with hospital and nursing home based infections, which have significantly increased over the last number of years.
Our specialized Carer's have a person centred approach to care when needed, but understand the subtle differences with live-in care and maintain a low key presence when the clients want their privacy.
We always introduce 2 care assistants to our clients to ensure continuity of care. The Carer's primary role is to assist our clients with a level of care that is determined by the client and their families in conjunction with our Care Manager as well as Public Health Nurse or G.P where needed.
Our live-in services would not be possible without the dedication and commitment of our carers. They are carefully selected because of their passion and desire to care for, interact with and listen to others needs. In fact, many of our live-in carers have experience caring for their own loved ones and friends.
