As a leading live-in care agency in the South East, Fambridge Care offer an individual service to those who require additional support within their own home.
If you, or a member of your family requires care, there is a choice to be made between arranging to move into a residential care home, or instead receiving 24-hour care and being able to stay in the home you know and love. Our live-in care service caters for those who would prefer and feel more comfortable to receive assistance from us in the comfort of their home.

Our live-in care service is a full-time solution, which provides you with companionship and daily living assistance. Below are some main reasons why live-in care could be the right solution for you:
- A trained carer on hand 24 hours a day to assist all your needs
- Continued independence in the environment which you are most comfortable
- One to one care tailored to your specific needs and preferences
- You can continue to live with your relatives or with a spouse or partner
Our main aim is to ensure that you continue to live your life the same way that you have always done, with a little extra help at hand as and when required. Our experienced live-in carers are able to support you with daily chores around the house, whether that’s ironing, washing or looking after your pets – the help our carers offer is tailored to you and they can do as much or as little as you want.

The Costs Associated with Live-in Care
In the UK, a popular misconception is that 24-hour care is prohibitively expensive when compared to the costs of living in a residential home. In reality, the costs for providing each type of care are comparable and should be fully researched prior to making any big, life-changing decisions.
When considering a full-time care solution, a general lack of public awareness regarding the viability of live-in care means that many people presume that moving into a residential care home is the only suitable option when faced with this choice. Very often live-in care can be the most economical option for individuals with an on-going care requirement,
Furthermore, in accordance with the UK government’s ‘Personalisation’ framework, anyone deemed eligible to receive care from their local authority or the NHS can be granted an allowance which can be used to obtain whichever form of care they feel best suits their needs.
Live-in care offers a personalised, individually tailored approach in comparison to other types of care options. With a live-in carer the level of care receive is far superior to that provided in a residential home and it will often be a less expensive option. Live-in Care is often an attractive option for those who need some care intervention but want to continue living in the comfort of their own home. For a similar cost to a care home, you can receive a bespoke service tailored specifically to your needs.
