Live-in care is an alternative to residential care, allowing people to remain in their own homes whilst receiving seamless professional care. Francis House Homecare is an established and experienced provider of live-in care for Luton clients who require support to remain independent. The service we offer is founded on the highest standards of professional care, delivered with kindness and compassion.
A live-in carer needs to provide both the appropriate skills and experience to deliver the support needed, as well as having a personality and temperament that will suit the client. We take great care when matching caring staff to clients, in order that a lasting relationship based on trust may develop, given time.
Live-in care involves having a professional carer living with you in order to support you in your home. Clients may need help with dressing, washing, medication, food preparation and cooking, cleaning, and shopping. Most important, your carer is available to provide emotional and physical support, and companionship.
Francis House care plans are bespoke to each client. They reflect the level of service required and are designed to ensure clients’ needs are fully met. We also carry out regular risk assessments.
Francis House Homecare places the client at the heart of the services we provide. We honour and respect the people we work with and take into account their background, their achievements, and their hopes for the future.
“Personalisation – tailoring care and support to what individuals choose as a means of helping them to live their normal life. People don’t want to be defined by their condition – they are not “suffering from dementia” or “autistic” or “subject to multiple co-morbidities”. They are, first and foremost, individuals with very personal hopes, fears, aspirations and relationships.”
Clients who choose to spend their final months or weeks at home, can rely on a Francis House live-in carer to support them. Our end of life care aims to fulfil the wishes of the person we are caring for. We provide live-in palliative care in Luton to support individuals and offer them the very best quality of life up until the end. Our work is carried out in collaboration with district nurses, the continuing healthcare team and PEPS, the Partnership for Excellence in Palliative Support.
