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.
Our large team of fully trained social care workers and personal assistants are based throughout the UK successfully providing outcomes based personalised care services to individuals in their own homes.
My thanks to all of your staff in helping to keep B at home. Both of us valued your care attention and kindness towards us over the recent months, and to receive the best possible care in difficult circumstances, my very best wishes to you and your company for the future.

I just wanted you to know how fantastic your care worker has been today ... absolutely no problems, Mum even sat and held a cup and drank some tea, which I have not seen her do in years, our care worker is efficient, has initiative and records everything in detail, I don’t have to ask her to do anything. I now feel confident enough to leave the house knowing everything will be ok here, and mum is in safe hands, thank you so much.
