Live-in Care in Berkshire
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 in Berkshire, 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 £900 and £1,300 a week, with a possibility of it being in the range of £650 to £950 under certain specialised circumstances.
You may not be ready for live-in care – you may just need a carer to pop in and help you for a couple of hours a day. Christies Care has worked with Homeinstead for a number of years, and we know they give a good service. Homeinstead Reading covers the city and much of the rest of the county. Homeinstead Ascot gets as far as Wokingham, and Homeinstead Maidenhead gets as far as Henley.
