Sadly, admission into a care or residential home is often the only option offered to elderly clients, particularly those with increasing levels of need. At Jane Lewis we provide various types of live-in care to people of all ages and with a wide range of dependency levels and needs. Please contact us to discuss your situation and we will put together a solution to accommodate your needs.
Live-In Care for Couples
If you are a couple and wish to remain together, live-in care is the perfect solution. It enables you to remain together in the home that you love, with your nearest and dearest. Whether the support required is for one person or both, you will have a carer present to assist with domestic tasks, personal care and more. Live-in care for couples costs significantly less than a nursing home double room or two singles.
Live-In Care after Hospital Discharge
Live-in care after a hospital stay can offer a faster, safer discharge and will help your recovery and rehabilitation. The Jane Lewis team will liaise with the hospital to ensure your return to the comfort of your home is smooth and safe. Our specialist staff can support you with convalescence and rehabilitation, working with and alongside your medical team.
Live-In Care for Dementia
For a person living with dementia, live-in care will assist them to maintain a regular routine and personal preferences, something which is vital to their health and well-being. With specialist dementia training, a Jane Lewis carer will enable your loved one to live as independently as possible.
A carer can assist with personal care, medication, cooking, household chores and support our loved one to go out and enjoy the community. Live-in care offers continuity of care from a dedicated team of carers, enabling personalised care and client/carer relationships to be established.
Live-In Care with Specialist Care Needs
We can provide care to people with long-term or on-going specialist needs. Our live-in care professionals cover a wide variety of disabilities and health conditions, including Huntington’s Disease, Motor Neurone Disease, Muscular Dystrophy, Locked-in Syndrome and Spinal Cord Injury.
Live-In Care for Falls Prevention
One of the main causes of ill-health and hospital admissions amongst older people is falls.
The presence of a professional live-in carer can play a key part in preventing falls and ensuring that you or your loved one can remain safe. They can help ensure the home is a safe environment, assist with things that are unsafe to do alone and help encourage activities which will improve strength and balance.
Live-In Care for Palliative (end of life) care
We recognise the benefits of receiving end-of-life support in the comfort and familiar surroundings of your own home. Our professional carers are able to provide one-to-one palliative care at home to clients who may be suffering from a life-threatening illness. We understand what a sensitive and emotional time this is for close family and friends and we will be there to help you through, often at short notice.
Live-In Care for Younger People
Live-in support workers can be provided for younger people, to include support with studying, working and leisure etc.
Jane Lewis offers care packages across the North West of England and North Wales, including Chester, St Asaph, Crewe, Shrewsbury and Manchester.
