How do you know your loved one needs live-in care?

Recognising that your loved one needs extra support can be challenging, but it is essential to help them get the help they need as quickly as possible.

Aside from noticing the signs, you have the tough decision of choosing which care options would be best suited to them.

If they require more hands-on care but wish to remain in the comfort of their own home, live-in care is an option that should definitely be explored.

What are the signs they need support?

As you spend time with your loved one, you might notice declines in their physical, mental and medical health as well as their day-to-day lives.

Knowing what to look for is essential in providing them with the care they need:

  • Physical decline – Your loved one might start to struggle with mobility, experience frequent falls, or neglect their personal hygiene
  • Mental health changes – Look out for signs of forgetfulness, mood changes, and withdrawing from social situations
  • Neglection of daily tasks – you should watch out for any unopened letters that begin to pile up, an unusually dirty home, and any neglected plants or pets
  • Medical issues – If your loved one has had a recent diagnosis of a chronic illness, are not able to manage their health conditions, or have experienced multiple hospitalisations then they might need extra support.

Recognising these signs is the first step to identify where their challenges lie, and the level of support needed.

How do you know live-in care is the right option?

Live-in care is ideal for anyone who wishes to maintain their independence rather than uproot their life and move to a residential care setting.

Someone might need live-in care when their condition becomes unmanageable on their own, but they still wish for independence.

This means that they will receive expert care without a change in environment.

Our live-in care services are tailored to the specific needs of each client and allow us to deliver the best possible support whilst enhancing their life as an individual.

The healthcare professional remains in the home to be available to support but they will sleep at night and be available if your loved one requires any assistance during the night.

The live-in care services we offer include:

  • Providing a healthcare professional who is available for 24-hour care
  • One-to-one support for complex conditions such as brain injury or motor neurone disease
  • Multiple daily visits

We will provide support for any condition, no matter the severity, and want you to know they are in the safest of professional hands.

What can Almond Care do to help?

We offer a team of friendly healthcare workers who are experts in client-specific training.

They deliver high-level clinical support, like medication management, as well as providing personal care and building relationships with your loved one to ensure comfort and support.

We cater to adult clients of all ages and conditions, enabling each client to live independently in their home with the care they require.

Understandably, you might have some concerns about bringing an unfamiliar person into someone’s home (on a long-term basis) which is why we make it our priority to carefully identify people who you and your loved one feel comfortable with.

The relationships our carers build with our clients places them in a crucial position to identify early signs and symptoms of a changing condition, allowing them to introduce appropriate action/treatment should someone need it.
