Adult Live-in Care
Whether you are looking for care for a loved one, or organising care for yourself, we can help guide you through the process, all you need to do is contact us.
What is Crossroads Live-in care?
Our live in care provision may be for you if you need more than just a care worker popping in a couple of times a day. To have a live-in care worker you need to have a spare room they can sleep in. They can be around in the house for you to call on every day and at night in emergency, with only a 3 hour daily break off premises. This can give you quite a bit of flexibility and reassurance. It also means all your care will be provided by just one or two care workers.

Live in care workers would expect to be busy up to 8 hours a day. Like with hourly care provision, care workers can support personal care needs as well as doing light housework and shopping. They can support you taking trips out if you like. We support people taking art classes as well as those who want to get out to the garden centre. If you want to go swimming or visit a museum, it is entirely up to you. We want to enable you to live your best life.
Live-in care workers usually share meal preparation and food with you, but everyone is different, and they can be catered for separately if you prefer.
If you think live-in care may be the right fit for you or your family, please contact us. We will then arrange a free home visit. One of our trained care managers will visit you and any of your carers at home at a convenient time for you. Together we can create a bespoke care plan just for you. Don’t worry, you can speak to your named care manager to tweak things if it doesn’t suit you perfectly straight away. They are always here to listen to you if you have any change in care needs, issues or concerns.
Live-in staff skills
All our staff are handpicked for their caring disposition, but our live-in staff are special as they may be your only care worker and therefore responsible for your total wellbeing. After going through our vigorous recruitment checks (including an enhanced Data and Barring Service check), we make sure they are trained and skilled in all aspects of care. For example, maintaining privacy and dignity when delivering care and ensuring people with care needs are always treated with respect. You can see the basic training they go through here. If your needs are more complex, we can provide further skills training as necessary.
