24/7 Live in care at Home
Independent Living in your own Home
At Nexus Care Services we understand the importance of care and support for you in your own home, enabling independent living for our clients.
We offer Live-in care throughout Sutton Coldfield, Tamworth, Lichfield & Staffordshire from £1000 per week. This allows those that require full time care to remain in the comfort and familiarity of their own home. There is usually a duo of carers that alternate living with you in your home taking care of all your needs as well as providing companionship and support throughout the day. You are assured with confidence that you will receive nothing but exemplary care from your carer(s) 24 hours a day – 7 days a week. We offer a “Live In” Care Packages offering 24/7 around the clock care from £1,000 per week.
During our initial assessment within your home, we consider which of our carers you would be most compatible with, and those that understand you and your needs. All of our carers are fully trained and qualified and have at least 1 year’s experience in the care industry.
Our rigorous recruitment process means only the successful applicants that meet our training, experience and reference requirements are placed – This ensures you receive the best level of home care.
How does it work?
We provide a small team of two carers. This enables them to work one week on and one week off. The continuity is important because it helps to build a bond between the carer and the person they are caring for. It helps them to establish a routine that will focus entirely on the needs of the client and ensure that each carer gets time off (they will often have family of their own). Even so, when a carer is on duty they are with the client, 24 hours a day, each day of the week and weekend.
Do you need to provide facilities for the carer?
When we provide care on a “live in” basis, it is expected that the client will provide facilities for the carer to sleep at night and the means for them to prepare food for both the client and themselves. If the client attends any hospital visits with the carer or social activities, then the client is expected to cover the cost of any transport for both.
The company holds insurance that provides cover for the client and the carer while they are on duty.
How can we provide 24/7 care for such reasonable price?
The way we cost live in care is quite different to our normal methods of a simple hourly rate. Government guidelines permit us to pay our carers a “block amount” for live in care. It is a single amount for the entire week, and we charge the client in the same way. Because of this we can proudly pay our carers above the average rate for the work they do and keep our client charges low.
Care Homes will often charge a weekly rate in excess of our live-in care rate but that simply gives you another choice if your preference is to be cared for in your own home.
Why choose Live in care?
You may need care or assistance 24 hours a day in order to remain independent in your own home. This can and often improves both your physical and mental health considerably – knowing there is always someone with you when you need. Live in care can provide considerable peace of mind for you, your family and loved ones.
