In this type of care package we will carefully match a small team of East Lancashire and Ribble Valley-based professional CareGivers to live with the client, providing a full range of support during the day and being there overnight in case of an emergency.
‘Managed live-in’ allows clients to enjoy very flexible care as it’s needed, and has several important advantages over directly employing a personal assistant in a live-in capacity.
Not only will Right at Home East Lancashire and Ribble Valley take care of recruiting and matching suitable CareGivers, then manage all issues related to their employment, we also make sure that all our staff are fully legitimised in a very thorough security checking process, which includes enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service checks.
Then our CareGivers’ work is closely scrutinised, both in-house and by the Care Quality Commission. There are currently no external checks on PAs – the responsibility of ensuring they are doing the job properly lies with the family members who employ them.
It’s also important to consider that when delivering Personal Care, our highly trained CareGivers will ensure that clients are always treated with dignity, respect and the latest approved procedures for safe handling and support.
