Bristol live-in care services

Many of the private clients who come to us ask what are the benefits of Bristol live-in care services compared to residential care homes, and it’s a question that is of huge importance to relatives or loved ones looking for live-in care.

As a leading provider of live-in care services across Bristol, Premier Homecare undertake a number of bespoke and unique steps for every private client, to ensure that their live-in care packages is the very best for them.

We also believe that live-in care can provide a number of distinct benefits in comparison to residential care homes, so our private clients in various BS postcodes enjoy a level of secure, consistent and high quality care from us.

In no particular order of preference or importance, we believe that the main benefits of Bristol live-in care services from Premier Homecare include:

Familiar surroundings in the client’s own home, which is critical for those who might be anxious or suffer from memory problems.

Live-in care also provides consistency and emotional security for clients, as well as allowing a level of independence, so family and friends can visit whenever they choose.

Our bespoke live-in care services also have less numbers of carers looking after a private client compared to a residential care home setting, where there could be a larger rota of support workers looking after a larger number of residents.

Live-in care packages from Premier Homecare are highly flexible, with clients able to access our care services for as long as they like, with as much or little support as they need. We provide a huge amount of flexibility for our private clients.

At Premier Homecare, we recruit our live-in carers specifically for live-in care clients. We visit each client, undertake a personality assessment, place an appropriate carer for them, and ensure that the client meets the carer to ensure that they are happy before any care is provided.

Our live-in care services offer a bespoke level of individual care, and if a carer becomes unwell or is on holiday, an immediate replacement is organised.

We’ve heard of some private clients in the past advertising privately for live-in carers through various online portals, such as Gumtree, with mixed results.

Whilst this may seem like an easier option, recruiting privately in this manner also means that there can be issues with safety, training, no back-up if a privately-employed live-in carer is unable to work, as well as other related problems such as ensuring DBS checks are completed for a private carer.

At Premier Homecare, we’re well known across Bristol for the level of training and support we offer all private clients utilising our bespoke live-in care services.
