What are the benefits of live-in care?
With live-in care your loved one is able to stay where they feel most comfortable, in their familiar surroundings, at home. This allows them to remain certain elements of independence such as meeting with friends, watching their favourite show on the telly and sticking to a routine which they may have known for years.
One to one support is provided day and night, providing you the re-assurance that your loved one is always being looked after. We understand that it can be worrying for your family member to feel like a burden on you and live-in care can help alleviate this, by giving them back some of that all important freedom and being less-reliant on you.
From nourishing and nutritious meals, to helping them get around, too simply being there for some company and a chat has a number of profound positive impacts on life and on mental health.

Live-in Care FAQs
How does Live in Care work?
A specially trained Carer moves in with you or your loved one and provides support all the time. They can help with anything from cooking meals, to support using hoists to move safely. They receive regular supervisions and support from our care managers.
What is required for a live-in carer?
A live-in carer will need their own separate room to sleep in and a two hour break every day. We can arrange cover for this time.
What happens when a live-in carer has a break/holiday/other emergency?
Your Carer will typically work for a block of time, from a few weeks to a month or more, and then take a break. During the break, Lifted will arrange another Carer to support your loved one. We are a fully managed service so we will never you leave your loved one without care.
Are Lifted Carers self employed?
No. Lifted is a fully managed service, we directly employ our professional carers. All carers go through a robust and rigorous recruitment process and are trained to the highest level. You will be supported by a dedicated care manager and a care supervisor who are highly experienced in supporting families. We are a regulated service, which means the quality of its care is regulated by The Care Quality Commission, This is not the case for a self employed care, even if they are introduced to you by an agency. We are proud of our report from the Care Quality Commission. You can read it here.
By contrast, an introduction agency may introduce you to a Carer but then you will be left to supervise, manage and organise all aspects of the care for their loved one. This can be stressful and time consuming. It also means you will need to arrange cover for breaks, sickness and holidays. There is also no guarantee that the Carer will be trained or supported, and sometimes even background checked.
Lifted by contrast provide 24/7 support for you and our staff and the reassurance of regulation as well as all the benefits of transparency and peace of mind given by our Care platform
