Thinking of providing live in care?

Live in care provides a flexible option for those with substantial support needs, and is often able to prevent admission to a care or nursing home. Service users may have physical or sensory needs that mean they require “round the clock” care, or issues like dementia, that make it difficult for them to be on their own. Live in care also provides an answer to social isolation, with the worker acting more as a companion than a care worker. Traditionally live in care is the preserve of a small number of specialist providers and agencies, but it is increasingly being offered by homecare organisations that provide daily care. So what issues should a provider consider before branching out into live in care? UKHCA’s publication provides a simple introduction to live in care. Updated in December 2020.
