What is end-of-life live-in care?

End-of-life live-in care is a compassionate and comprehensive service designed to support individuals during their final stages of life. Provided by our experienced and trained carers, live-in care for the end of life offers personalised assistance and emotional support to people who wish to remain in the comfort and familiarity of their own homes during their end-of-life journey.

Carers are trained to manage and alleviate symptoms associated with the end of life, such as pain, discomfort, and anxiety. They work closely with healthcare professionals and family members to ensure that the individual remains as comfortable as possible.

How does end-of-life live-in care work?

An expert, professional and compassionate carer will move into your home to provide you with one-to-one care and support around the clock, giving you peace of mind and reassurance that you are receiving the highest quality end-of-life care.

A live-in care arrangement usually involves two carers working on a two-week rotation. They will be carefully matched, working with you and your family to ensure they are able to meet not just your care and support needs, but also share common interests, personalities and backgrounds so that the time you spend together is more enjoyable.

The carer who comes and lives in your home will provide a highly personalised plan of care. The comprehensive care plan will be created with input from not just the person receiving care, but with vital input from family members and other healthcare professionals involved in your care.

Benefits of end-of-life live-in care:

  • Allows individuals to remain in the comfort and familiarity of their own home while receiving the support they need
  • Bespoke support with pain and symptom management
  • Promotes comfort, dignity, and quality of life during the end-of-life journey
  • 24 hour support with delegated healthcare tasks

How our live-in care supports the end of life

As individuals approach the end of their lives, the need for compassionate and comprehensive care becomes paramount. At The Good Care Group, we understand the significance of this transitional period and are dedicated to providing unparalleled support through our live-in care services.

From ensuring dignity and respect to managing symptoms effectively, our team is committed to easing the journey for you or your loved one. Here are some ways our live-in care supports the end of life:

Sensitivity and respect

Our team of live-in carers are not only expertly trained but also carefully matched with you based on your specific requirements. With a deep understanding of your needs, they provide sensitive and respectful assistance with domestic tasks and personal care, allowing you to maintain your dignity and independence.

Relief from the burden of chores

In times of illness or end-of-life care, the burden of daily chores can become overwhelming, both physically and emotionally. Our carers provide sensitive and respectful assistance with domestic tasks and personal care. Whether it’s preparing meals, tidying up the home, or assisting with personal grooming, our goal is to alleviate the stress of everyday chores so that your family can focus on what truly matters: spending quality time with your loved ones and finding moments of peace and comfort.

Short notice care

We recognise that the need for care can arise unexpectedly, leaving you feeling overwhelmed and uncertain. With our short notice care service, we swiftly organise and implement the necessary support, ensuring that you or your loved one can return home with care in place without delay.

Symptom management

To enhance your quality of life and enable you to spend meaningful time with your loved ones, our carers are trained in symptom management techniques. They work diligently to alleviate discomfort and ensure that you or your loved one remain as comfortable and pain-free as possible.

Medication management

Managing medications can be complex, but our live-in carers are equipped with the expertise to assist you with ordering and collecting medications. With a thorough understanding of various medical conditions, they ensure that you receive the correct medications at the right time, promoting your health and wellbeing.

Specialist clinical care & support

Our professional carers are trained to monitor and identify any changes in your health, responding appropriately and avoiding any unnecessary hospital admissions. Our carers, with specialist training, can also take on some tasks normally delivered by a trained nurse, occupational therapist, or physiotherapist, including insulin administration, catheter flushing and PEG feeding.


Beyond providing essential medical care and help with household chores, we understand the importance of companionship and emotional support. Our compassionate carers offer friendship and companionship, fostering a supportive environment where you or your loved one can feel valued, understood, and at ease.

With The Good Care Group, you can trust that you or your loved one will receive personalised, compassionate, and high-quality end-of-life care, allowing you to navigate this journey with dignity, comfort, and peace of mind.
