Live-In Carers For All Needs And Ages

Continuity Care introduces live-in carers to support and care for you in your own home

Continuity Care is a premium introduction agency, sourcing and providing live-in carers for a wide range of domestic care needs. We select carers exclusively for each client’s individual needs as we believe each person requires a carer with unique skill sets and abilities.

Each person has their own defined care needs, so we always get to know your individual requirements and understand your personal wishes in the first instance.

This enables us to provide support that will fit exactly with your health conditions and domestic situation.

Unlike residential care homes, with a live-in carer, you will be able to keep daily contact with your family and friends and continue to live the lifestyle of your choosing.

This means you can follow the activities, hobbies and interests you love, safe in the knowledge you are receiving the personal care and support you need at home, when you require it.

You will also receive one-to-one care as opposed to the ratio of one carer to four residents in a care home. Finally, you will find the cost savings of live-in care can be considerable compared to a residential home.

We care about your care

A caring relationship with all our
customers is fundamental to everything
we do, because understanding and
thoroughly supporting your needs is
critical to all aspects of how we work.
Your care is always our number one
priority, but we believe to maintain that,
it is important to create a relationship
with you that is based on compassion,
attention and trust.

Our dedicated care solutions range
broadly from companionship and
personal care, through to respite and
even complex disability support, all
delivered in the comfort of your own
home. However, we strongly believe
each live-in care solution is unique to
the individual receiving it, so we always
aim to provide exactly the level of care
you require.

Whether you are elderly, frail or have
a physical or learning disability, we will
supply you with a live-in carer who
will empathise, care and provide the
companionship and one to one support
that you need to continue living safely
at home. This means instead of moving
into a residential or care home, you can
retain your independence and won’t
have to give up your cherished home,
possessions or pets.

Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia and is a disease that affects the brain causing issues ranging from memory loss to problems with communication. This website gives you in depth help and contact numbers for information regarding all issues surrounding Alzheimer’s.

Local authorities may cover some or all of the cost of care in some circumstances, but the provision of funding is means-tested. This means that payments depend on what your needs are, how much money you have, and what level and type of care and support you require. This page gives some useful info and links.

Age UK provides services and support for the over-60’s both locally and nationally to enable older people to make the most of later life. Their website provides really helpful advice on care for the elderly as well as information on funding and welfare benefits available for anyone over the age of sixty.

Attendance Allowance is a tax-free benefit for people aged over 65 who need help with personal care including getting in and out of bed, washing, eating, medication or mobility, or because they can become confused and need someone to watch over them. Phone your local benefits office or 0345 605 6055.

Personal Independence Payment (PIP) helps with some of the extra costs caused by long-term ill-health or a disability if you’re aged 16 to 64. You could get between £21.55 and £138.05 a week. The rate depends on how your condition affects you, not the condition itself. Call 0800 917 2222.

Carer’s Allowance is a taxable benefit for people such as friends and family members, who look after someone who gets Attendance Allowance or Disability Living Allowance. Extra expenses can be claimed for paying a carer or helper to provide support while you are out. Call 0345 608 4321 for more information.

If you’re ill or disabled, Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) offers you financial support if you’re unable to work and personalised help so that you can work if you’re able to. Call 0800 055 6688 for help and advice. Visit the official Government website for further information and advice.

The UK Home Care Association is the representative body for organisations that provide personal care – including nursing care – to people in their own homes. The UKHCA produces guidance and information on good practice and acts as a focal point for innovation and quality within the care industry.
