What is Live-in Care in the UK?

Ditch the Care Home, Keep Your Comfort:

Traditional home care stops where live-in care truly begins. Imagine a trusted friend and personal assistant residing in your home 24/7, providing personalised support tailored to your needs. That’s the magic of live-in care: staying safe, comfortable, and independent within your familiar walls.

What Does Live-in Care Include?

  • Social Interaction and Companionship: Engaging in conversation, shared hobbies, and outings to combat loneliness and foster connection.

How to Choose the Right Live-in Care Provider in the UK?

Finding the right live-in care provider is a crucial decision. Look for these key qualities:


  • Experienced and Qualified Caregivers: Ensure they have proper training, background checks, and CQC registration.
  • Person-centred Approach: Your needs and preferences come first. Choose a provider who listens and tailors the care plan accordingly.
  • Compassion and Empathy: Dignity and respect are paramount. Seek an agency that prioritises genuine care and understanding.
  • Transparency and Communication: Open communication fosters trust. Choose a provider who keeps you and your family informed every step of the way.
  • Competitive Pricing and Flexible Packages: Affordable options for diverse needs. Prioritise transparency and flexibility in pricing.

Does live-in care get funding in the UK?

In the UK, funding for live-in care depends on individual circumstances and financial needs. Here are some potential funding options:

  • NHS Continuing Healthcare (CHC): This funding may be available if you have complex care needs exceeding what the NHS can provide at home.
  • Local Authority funding: Local councils may offer financial assistance for in-home care services under certain eligibility criteria. Contact your local council for more information.
  • Private funding: If you have savings or private insurance, you can opt for self-funded live-in care. Carefully consider your financial situation and budgeting for long-term care needs.

Remember, exploring all potential funding options can help make informed decisions about live-in care and ensure its affordability in the long run.
