Why Choose 24-hour Live In Care?

Reaching the point in our lives when you need a greater level of care and support, shouldn't automatically mean you have to leave the place you feel happiest and most secure - your own home.

Live in care is a 24 hour 'in your own home' alternative to moving into residential care or a nursing home, where the dramatic changes to routine and environment can have a significant and distressing impact on a person's life and wellbeing.

With Unique Senior Care, our live-in carers are directly employed, highly trained, carefully selected and will live with you as a companion and to support you with your daily activities in your own home.

Your carefully matched live-in carer is there to focus only on your needs, getting to know you and making sure you receive the highest quality care and support, allowing you to keep the same routines, interests and hobbies.

You and your loved one will decide the carers' usual hours of work which will be when you believe you will need the most assistance.  When not working their agreed hours, your carer will be able to rest, sleep, and enjoy the usual activities of living at home.

Costs of 24-Hour care

When considering your care at home options, the costs are a major consideration, and these very much depend on the level of support and type of care you or your loved one requires.

Often, your needs may increase to a point where numerous hourly visits per day can become more expensive than a live in or 24-hour care package arrangement.

If you are considering moving to a residential care home, again live-in 24 hour care may be surprisingly cost-effective, particularly if you are a couple.

What Conditions Do You Support With 24 Hour Care?

Our comprehensive range of supported conditions is extensive and ever-expanding. It's worth noting that not every client comes to us with a formal diagnosis. In many instances, the term "elderly care" is broadly applied to encompass a variety of health and mobility challenges.

Nevertheless, we boast considerable expertise in delivering live-in care services for individuals requiring more complex care needs when facing more intricate health requirements, such as Cancer, Parkinson’s Disease, Motor Neurone Disease, post-stroke recovery, and Multiple Sclerosis.

Our care services are particularly geared towards providing round-the-clock bespoke care for individuals living with dementia, including Alzheimer’s Disease, Vascular Dementia, Lewy Body Dementia, Frontotemporal Dementia, or a combination of these.

Given the progressive nature of cognitive decline, maintaining consistency in daily routines and environment is crucial. This is precisely where our 24-hour live-in care provision can make a significant difference, offering stability and continuous specialist care support in the comfort of one’s own home.
