The Live-in & Companionship service, places the Care Worker in your home on a permanent basis which allows for continuous support.
Live-in care allows you to continue living in your own home and enjoy your local community, with the peace of mind that all of your care needs are being taken care of. You can carry on enjoying life with our full professional support and assistance 365 days of the year.
Families who choose Live-in Care from Blue Ribbon do so with the peace of mind that comes from knowing their Care Worker is always available; whatever the time of day.
A major benefit of our service is the constant care and companionship you receive at home from a Care Worker who is dedicated to your needs.
All of our Care Workers are overseen by a network of Registered Managers and Supervisors, which means you are never far away from the support you need. Your Care Worker’s role can be as varied as you wish, embracing support with personal care and continence care, support with medication or helping with restricted mobility.
Maintaining your home is important too; your Care Worker can support with your housekeeping, cleaning, laundry and shopping, as well as trips out. We also understand the importance of nutrition; our Care Workers will cook to your tastes and advise you on how to achieve a well-balanced diet.
Often, of greatest importance, is the quality time they spend as a companion, chatting and simply keeping you company. What this then allows is time for you and your loved ones to be a family, spending quality time together.
