24-Hour Live In Care

Our 24-Hour Live In Care Assistance

Our 24-Hour Live in Care is available across SW Wales, including Ceredigion, Carmarthenshire, Pembrokeshire & Swansea. These specifically trained 24hr Care Assistants provide total home care for each individual, throughout the period of 24hours. These Care Assistants have normally worked within the industry for a minimum of two years and are generally the more mature care assistant, of course if this is the individual’s preference.

This quality service enables an individual to have a choice. A choice to remain in their own home to be cared for on a one to one basis instead of having to be relocated to a Residential Home. This service gives the individual the freedom to go out whenever they wish and to live their lives as they want to. This service is all about complete care, from arranging Doctors or other professional visits when needed, to the management of the individual’s home.

A 24hr Care Assistant not only provides care and choice for an individual, but also enables the family to continue to be family members and not carers themselves, having to provide the personal care that sometimes they would have to. It also enables the family to continue with their own lives, safe within the knowledge that the individual is in their own home, being cared for and looked after.

The 24hr Care Assistants provide all the services that the Day Care Assistant and Night Care assistants provide, and as we realise that each individual is completely different, packages are tailored for each person separately.
