Live-in Care for Young Adults
Whilst live-in home care is acknowledged by many older people as a preferable alternative to relocating to a residential care or nursing home, it can also provide flexible assistance and support for young adults with ongoing care needs.
Although comparable in price to quality residential care, live-in care for young adults offers greater benefits. Life in a residential home may seem restrictive and institutionalised to a young adult whilst live-in care, whereby a fully-trained professional carer stays with the young adult wherever they are living, ensures that they receive all of the care and support they need whilst continuing to live an independent and fulfilled life on their own terms.
The flexibility offered by live-in care means that the young adult can make the most of opportunities such as gaining part-time or full-time employment or pursuing academic studies at college or university. In addition to providing round-the-clock care that is tailored to the needs of the individual, a live-in carer may also assist with everyday domestic tasks such as room tidying, meal preparation and laundry whilst also offering companionship and helping a young adult with social trips and activities.
The role of a live-in carer for a young adult extends beyond helping the individual themselves; the carer also provides peace of mind and emotional support for the family and friends of the young adult.
The Good Care Group specialises in providing the highest standards of live-in home care for young adults throughout the UK. Each of our professional carers is exclusively employed by us following a rigorous recruitment process. They benefit from an industry-leading training programme which ensures that they can provide the individually tailored care and support that a younger adult needs. Our specialist knowledge enables us to provide exceptional care to younger adults with dementia, MS, impaired mobility and long-term conditions which may require nurse-led medical care.
A good relationship between a young adult and a carer is very important and will we always ensure that the most suitable carer in terms of skill set and experience is chosen. We want the people we care for to feel comfortable in the presence of their carer and to regard them as a friend, since feelings of companionship and security are hugely beneficial to an overall sense of wellbeing.
