Abicare Live-in care services across the UKLive-in care advice and costs
When daily visits aren’t enough, our live-in care service allows you to be well looked after in familiar surroundings. One of our trusted, vetted carers lives with you, or your family member, to provide daily one-to-one care.
Having your carer on hand gives reassurance and peace of mind to you and your household. We want you to be able to keep up your favourite daily routines, live with your pet or stay with your family for as long as possible.
The benefits of live-in care
Live-in care can be a cost-effective alternative to care homes. You or your loved one receives high-quality care from our carefully selected carers and all within your own home. Some of the benefits include:
- Stay in the comfort of your own home.
- Cost effective one-to-one care.
- Keep your independence and control of day-to-day life.
- Free up family from domestic tasks and get more quality time together.
- Peace of mind for you and your family.
- Stay with your pets.
- Live in the heart of your own community.
What is live-in care?
Live-in care is when one of our vetted carers lives in your home. This can be full-time or respite care that covers your night off or a holiday. Abicare work with you to agree on your goals, and your care plan, which might include:
- Personal care: bathing, dressing, toileting and supervision of medicine
- Light housework: laundry, cooking, and shopping.
- Accompanying you on trips.
Are Live in Care and 24 hour care the same?
A Live-in Carer can not work constantly 24 hours a day, they do need breaks and sleep but they are in close proximity throughout the day and night. If you require full time, round the clock care for more advanced needs, you will need 24 hours care. 24 hour care is usually done by 2 or more carers taking shifts throughout the day and night. Some example of those who need 24 hour care could be:
- Advanced Dementia
- Mental Disability
- Physical Disability
- Palliative Care
Who will be my carer?
We know the idea of a carer living in your house might take getting used to, which is why we are very selective about our live-in carers. Each carer is friendly, compassionate and highly trained. All our staff are handpicked to suit both your care needs and your personality.
If you need 24-hour care, we train at least two carers to know how you like your tasks done. This gives you a small team of well-rested carers who understand your needs.
Carefully chosen carers who pass all our checks
Before we train each carer, we make sure they have the right qualifications and an up-to-date DBS, following these simple steps: interview, DBS background check, eligibility check and experience check.

When family or friends need to take a break, our carers can provide support. Live-in respite and holiday carers offer the very same standards of care you are used to while the regular caregiver is away. Family and friends can enjoy some time out, knowing their loved one is being cared for, and if a bit of respite means the whole family going away, we can come along too. By taking care of your loved one, we take care of you.
Let us know your needs so we can recommend a holiday or respite care plan for you.Contact us
Social contact is essential to our health and wellbeing. With a live-in companionship service, your carer spends one-on-one time with you, as often as you want. Your carer can fit in with your interests and take part in activities of your choice. Alternatively, a carer can just have an interesting conversation about the things that matter to you most.
