Live-in care with Christies Care
Who has live-in care?
Anybody who needs full time care and wants to live in their own home. With live-in care, you have a trained carer who lives with you; who is there for you 24 hours a day; who is there to help you to live life as you choose, in your own home. For our elderly clients, it means that they can carry on living at home, with their husband or wife, garden, pets, familiar circle of friends and neighbours. For our younger clients, it means that they can go to university, have a job, go to the pub, have a family life, and generally live life as they want.
You can have live-in care for as long as you like: two weeks, a month, every now and again to cover while a family carer has a break, or for ever. It is up to you.
We are specialists
Christies Care specialises in providing fully trained and Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) checked live-in carers throughout the UK. Family owned and run, and Care Quality Commission (CQC) registered, we have over 25 years of experience in this specialised field.
We train all our carers to be companions, as well as to carry out the usual tasks of daily living such as cooking, laundry, light housework, and helping their clients get out and about. They give as much personal care and help with mobility as is needed.
And what does this cost?
It depends on your wants and needs, but the total cost is normally between £600 and £700 a week.
Who are our carers?
Our carers are just that, people who care. We have a rigorous recruitment process, but most of all we are looking for people who have the right, caring attitude. It doesn’t matter what previous experience a carer has, as all carers go through our in-depth five-day induction course where they are given the skills needed to go out and care for their clients. Christies Care is growing, so we are recruiting for new carers. If you feel you have the right skills and attitude, please look at our be a carer page, and apply.
If you have any questions, or would like to talk to somebody about care, please call us on 0844 477 6461 or email us on firstname.lastname@example.org
