Live-In Care
Aged man gets hope and is happy from a senior care caregiver

We are delighted to offer Live-in Care as a service

Senior care plus live-in care varies from client to client and depends upon their level of need but essentially it means that a Carer or team of carers will live with the person needing care in their home and provide round-the-clock care.

Live-in care usually includes personal care, (like washing, dressing and supporting morning and nighttime routines), supervision of medication, helping with odd jobs around the house, cleaning, cooking and of course companionship. Carers may also take care recipients to the shops or help support getting them to and from medical or hospital appointments. 

You can have live-in care for as long as you like: two weeks, a month or even as a respite break to cover while the family carer has their break – it’s entirely up to you.

Among the top home care agencies in Ireland, we’re dedicated to ensuring the wellbeing of your loved ones through sustained emotional support, and all in the comfort of their own home. At Senior care Plus we understand that mental and emotional wellbeing is just as important as your physical health.

As such, your live-in carer will always endeavour to not only be a source of help and support, but also an excellent companion. In fact, many individuals develop true bonds with their Carers and would consider them to be a friend as well as a support professional.
