What is live-in care?

Live-in Care enables anyone with care needs to continue living in their own home with a round-the-clock care worker available to support whenever required. If you have specific needs or you just need some companionship Empathy Care is the right provider for you. We will provide that extra support you require through this Live-in service. It is a service that provides a realistic and affordable alternative to moving into a care home for you will have somebody well trained to be with you 24 hours a day.

By living in your home, our care workers can help you to live independently and it is our desire to see you happy within familiar environments. With live-in care, you have a trained carer who lives with you; who is there for you 24 hours a day; who is there to help you to live life as you choose, in your own home. For our elderly clients, it means that they can carry on living at home, with their husband or wife, garden, pets, familiar circle of friends and neighbours. For our younger clients, it means that they can go to university, have a job, go to the pub, have a family life, and generally live life as they want it to be like. At Empathy Care, we don’t sympathize but we rather empathize for we know a good picture mirror itself as it is hence we will live with you to feel the same way you feel.

It is your decision to have somebody come and live with you and it is your choice to decide who you want to be around you. At Empathy Care, we will provide you with as much information as possible about an individual and a wider choice of well-trained individuals for you to choose. Your family can also help you make that choice and we will avail all information they may require. Choosing care for a loved one is not an easy decision, as every family situation is different. To make an informed choice you need to know your options and the difference between the types of care services available. You can have live-in care for as long as you like: two weeks, a month, every now and again to cover while a family carer has a break, or forever. It is up to you.

Who are our carers?

Our carers are just that, people who care, individual with the capability to work along you, respect your choice and upheld your private life. We have a rigorous recruitment process, but most of all we recruit individuals who have the right, caring attitude. It doesn’t matter what previous experience a carer has, as all carers go through our in-depth one week’s induction course where they are given the skills needed to go out and care for you or your loved one. There is nothing valuable as knowing you or your family is in the hands of an individual with knowledge, love and empathy.
