Live-in care is a viable alternative to going into a nursing home for most people. A carer comes to live in your home to provide 24/7 support and companionship so you can continue to live safely at home and enjoy your everyday activities. Having a Mumby’s live-in carer not only offers continued independence but complete peace of mind for you and your family as there will always be someone there able to help out, prevent accidents or be on-hand should you fall ill.
The option of live-in care is often over looked when searching for a care solution, as most people assume it is too expensive or simply don’t realise it is an option. Costs of live-in care are comparable, and can even be cheaper than a care home and when you consider the benefits of live-in care compared to being in a care-home it is clear, and proven, that people do better when care is given at home.
Who needs live-in care
Mumby’s clients vary in their needs and requirements for live-in care including those;
- Recovering from accidents, illnesses and surgery with short term medical conditions
- Who need assistance with daily activities i.e. bathing, dressing, toileting, feeding and transferring
- With family or friends that might require additional support or respite care.
To clients with more complex needs that require carers with specialist qualifications such as;
- Patients with chronic medical conditions requiring ongoing care and supervision such as diabetes, emphysema, hypertension and stroke
- Individuals in need of supervision due to Alzheimer’s disease and dementia
- Patients with terminal illness
Your alternative to a care home
Our live-in care support is an affordable alternative to feeling forced to use a residential or care home if living independently has become unsafe, is too much of a challenge or has proved to be too isolated. It is the perfect solution for those who wish to remain in their own home where they are relaxed and can live independently, with dignity, in familiar surroundings but with a high-level of professional support. Live in carers work to the schedule of your home and realise that the nature of the role means they are on hand 24/7.
There are obvious and more complex benefits to live-in care for both the client and their families including;
- Remaining in your home
- Spending your day as you please
- Continuing your daily routine and social activities
- Having a chaperone for appointments
- Home cooked meals (your choice of meals)
- Keeping your pets with you
- 24/7 one-to-one care
- Specialist care if needed

My role as Care Manager is to assess, support, liaise and assist people to find a care pathway which supports their wishes and needs; whilst also delivering high quality care with the amazing team here at Mumby’s.
On a personal note what is important for me when thinking about live-in care is family values which Mumby’s wholeheartedly represents.
