How Live-in Care Works Day-To-Day

Whether you are arranging a short period of live-in care or something more long-term, you will likely have a lot of questions about how it works, what your carer can support with, and what happens when it is time for them to take a break.

A live-in carer’s daily responsibilities will range depending on the level of care that is required. However, tasks may include any of the following –

Creating A Familiar And Comfortable Routine

We do our best to ensure your care is as consistent as possible. However, like all jobs, time off is needed. Here is a typical pattern of care –

Week One

The service user’s primary carer starts. They live in, working up to ten hours a day, with two hours of breaks taken intermittently throughout the day. This first week is a trial week. If it does not work out, the service user and family are able to cancel.

Week Two To Three

Provided everything is going well, the carer remains in place, supporting the service user with everything required to make the most of life

Week Four

The primary carer takes time off. A substitute, ‘respite’ carer moves in. They will take care of the service user until the primary carer returns.

Week Five To Seven

The primary carer returns. They will typically be in place for another three to four weeks. This working pattern will usually then continue, so everyone can get into a comfortable and familiar routine.
