UK-Wide Live-in Care

Live-in Care is a full-time home care solution that allows you or your loved one to stay at home in familiar, relaxed surroundings. Care is provided to adults and children by a fully trained Live-in Carer who works to an individually designed care plan. For many this one-to-one personal home care service is an ideal solution.

Choosing how to support the care of a loved one is a difficult decision; you want to do what's best for your family. There is no right or wrong, every family situation is different. But to be able to make an informed choice you need to know your options and understand the difference between home care and residential care.

Athena Care understands we need to listen to what you say and wherever possible assist you to express your preferences to ensure your care and support is delivered how you want it to be. We also understand the need to work in partnership with families and carers. This means that your live-in care service is truly tailor made to provide you with support and companionship, all of which is provided in the comfort of your own home. Our employed by us live-in care is based on a hours agreement covering a reference period - this is normally based on no more than 10 hours a day contact time and a good night's sleep. For more details call us now!

Athena Care is able to provide you with a carer who will remain at home to provide you with the reassurance that someone is always there to assist you when needed. We can also assist with clinical delegated health care tasks such as controlled medication, bowel management, bladder management, intermittent catheterisation, PEG feed, eye drops, etc..

We currently support individuals with a wide range of conditions, many of which we have listed on our Specialist Care page.

Live-in Care v Care Home

The costs of live-in care and a care home are roughly comparable so why choose live-in care?

Whilst for some Care Homes offer a solution, they cannot offer bespoke one-to-one care assistance in your own home on your own terms. Due to the nature of caring for a large group of individuals, they need to have fairly strict rules that keep the home running efficiently.

Care homes can't always offer the flexibility of simple things like eating what you want, going to bed when you want, watching what you like on television. These simple things are very important to retaining individuality and independence - this is particularly true for dementia conditions where maintaining continuity and familiarity of routine is especially important.

Live-in Care offers complete flexibility; your family can visit on their own schedule and can have more hands on involvement if they choose to. A tailor made care plan, delivered on a one-to-one basis, is a level of personalised care that Care Homes cannot compete with. Whilst the costs of Live in Care and Care Homes are generally similar the level of personalised care received is not.

Simply put, Live-In Care offers you or your loved one the greatest level of personalised care.
