Continuity of care is very important to us!
Free Care Assessment
After the initial contact, we will visit you in your own home in Dorset, or in hospital, to assess your live in care needs free of charge. Known as the “Care Assessment”, a consultant from our Live in Care Dorset team will come to you at your convenience; and together with you, will make a list of your care requirements and needs for a live in carer.
We will review your medical conditions, your medication, your support needs, nutrition and diet preferences, live in carer accommodation, etc.
If you have pets who need caring for that is fine too.
From this we can determine whether live in care is what is required at this stage and how this can benefit you and your quality of life.
Dorset Live in Carer Profiles
Having had the free care assessment and heard your requirements, we will send you a number of Live in Care carer’ profiles so that you can select the perfect companion for you. The care package can be quickly arranged and can start within a few days or set up in advance for when you’re ready to get assistance.
Our care workers support hundreds of elderly people, caring for them and enabling them to stay independent, assisting them with their daily routine. Alongside these, we also support younger people with learning or physical disabilities. Your live-in support worker can accompany you as you go about your daily life. As needs and interests change our Dorset live in care staff will adapt the support to what is required.
With you remaining completely in control at all times, each client requirements are different and our carers adapt to these and work on the tasks you need help with.
The live in carer will do the housework, shopping, meal preparation, personal care and anything else that you need. If there is a car, they can also help you travel to and from locations – at your discretion.
