FAQs about our live-in care services in Borehamwood & Watford

Why choose live-in care over residential care?

What’s the difference between live-in care and 24-hour care at home?
Live-in care is where a CareGiver lives with you in your own home. Your live-in CareGiver will support you with your daily routine, which may include helping you to get washed and dressed, preparing meals, accompanying you out in the community and general housekeeping. Your live-in CareGiver will have breaks during the day to relax and enjoy some free time and will go to sleep during the evening. For Clients who need regular care during the night, or require someone on hand at all times, a team of Carers can provide around-the-clock support so families have peace of mind that their loved one’s needs are taken care of 24-hours a day.
How much does a live-in carer cost?
The cost of our homecare is calculated based on each Client’s individual needs. In some circumstances Local Authorities can help to pay for live-in care. For more information, take a look at Hertfordshire County Council’s website for more information.
