Live-in care is the new normal.

Live-in care is when a professional carer comes and lives with you in your own home to provide you with care, companionship and support, so you live a better quality of life in the comfort of your own home.

20 years ago when families were faced with the realisation that their loved one or family member needed care the only option was to move into a care home. Live-in care is fast becoming the preferred choice for those who wish to receive 1 to 1 care whilst maintaining the independence of living in their own home.

According to a survey conducted by the Live-in Care Hub, 97% of people given the choice would prefer to carry on living at home.

The benefits of live-in care

The benefits of
live-in care

  • Comfort at home

    Enduring the stress, upheaval and uncertainty of moving into a care home is tough. There is no place like home with it’s familiarity and possessions around you.

  • Tailored to you

    Our carefully matched carers get to know your loved one’s like they were a family member.

  • Maintaining your lifestyle

    One-to-one care enables your loved one to live the life they wish - no rigid timetables or set routines. Continue to live to their rhythm with the additional help they require.

  • With professional carers

    It’s no surprise the calibre of carers and our training sets us apart: only 5% of applicants meet our standards. We then train them in-house to ensure they understand our values.

  • More affordable

    Surprisingly to many live-in care is often more cost effective than people initially realise. A popular misconception is that 24 hour care is prohibitively expensive when compared to the cost of a care home.

    Care home: £1,500 / Live-in care: starting at £1,245

Care homes used to be the default for individuals who are in need of care, but now 99% of those in their later years can stay at home with regulated live-in care. Edyn’s service is changing care
