What is live-in care?
The carer(s) stay in the clients’ home on a 24-7 basis. They normally provide Full Personal Care and carry out general household duties. The level of care provided varies greatly and is dependent on the individual needs of the client concerned. It can range from general companionship and housekeeping to high dependency where a high level of Intensive Personal Care is required. If you use the services of Grace Live In Carers here really becomes no reason for a move into a Nursing Home!

What if I don't like the carer?
We try our best to match the carer with each of our clients and at the outset where the client does not like a particular carer we will try other carers until the client is happy. We then keep to two carers per client to minimise disruption and to avoid confusion by the client.

What area of the country do you cover?
Whilst we are based in the North West of England, this does not stop us from being able to provide care across the whole of UK and later on during the year we intend to spread out to Canada etc - because we mainly concentrate on live in care, it does not matter where the care takes place, as each carer is on site for usually a minimum of two weeks- four weeks depending on agreement.

We can start the care package once all the necessary procedures have been completed. This does take time and is not something we like to rush.
