Otus Live-in Care provides personal carers for short and long term engagements. Our service is specifically designed to assist those who wish to remain living in the comfort of their own home. Independent living, but with the support and companionship of a live-in carer, delivers security and improved quality of life. The carers we introduce will adapt to the client’s way of life, give them space and deliver care in a dignified way. Their aim is to increase a client’s independence, improve quality of life and make the most of all life has to offer.
Live-in care can be long-term, for a few weeks to assist with recovery after illness, a stay in hospital or post operative recovery. Live-in care can also provide holiday cover or respite for carers already supporting the client. Live-in carers are also able to help clients who have a spinal injury, are suffering from cerebral palsy, have learning disabilities or any other independence limiting condition. If you are unsure as to whether a live-in carer could help you or a loved one, just give us a call.
Otus Live-in Care offers bespoke, person centred levels of care. The level of care required will be fully discussed with a client before a live-in carer is proposed or introduced. For clients requiring long-term, continuous live-in care, they can benefit from a rota of personal carers (availability allowing) delivering continuity of care.
Live-in care is designed for clients who need companionship and support in order to continue living independently in their own home. A live-in carer would be happy to undertake meal preparation, assistance to retire at night, assistance to and from wheelchairs etc, light housework, shopping, day-to-day household administration, personal laundry, companionship in the home, escorting to appointments and family occasions, events locally or even a holiday.
Live-in care is also for those clients who require a greater degree of personal support. For example, help with bathing and showering, washing and dressing, continence and toileting care, mobility and hoisting. Carers also have experience in looking after clients who need help with catheters, are suffering a long term or terminal illness, have had a stroke or are suffering from Parkinson’s, dementia or Alzheimer’s disease, as well as providing holiday cover or respite for carers already supporting the client. Live-in care can benefit anyone of any age if they are in need including those who have suffered a spinal injury, suffer from cerebral palsy, learning disabilities or any other independence limiting condition.
No matter what level of care, all live-in carers we introduce have the specialist training and experience required to carry out the engagements in a professional and caring way. All are personally interviewed by Otus Live-in Care Managing Director, Paul Isaacs, all identities are confirmed, references and certificates of training and insurance verified, and most importantly all have an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check, including a check against the Protection of Vulnerable Adults (POVA) list.
