MyLife Live in Care

Live in care enables people to continue to live independently in their own home, often as an alternative to moving into a residential care home.
Providing daily companionship as well as practical support, MyLife Live in Assistants are a popular choice for many people.

Engaging a MyLife Assistant means that your loved one will always have a trusted, highly trained and experienced companion nearby at any time of the day or night.

So why choose Live in Care?

“My husband was in hospital and I was told to put him in a care home as he didn’t have long to live. Without MyLife I would never have got him home where he belongs and how thrives. It’s like having nurses not just carers, I can relax knowing he is in safe hands”

You might choose a live in care service for long term health conditions such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s or for End of Life care.

How MyLife can help

Our Live in Care service is entirely bespoke, built around each individual customer and their family.

We are able to provide as little or as much support as required, sensitive to the different needs, wishes and aspirations of our customers.

The first step is to organise a visit from a member of our local MyLife support team, to meet you and your family in their own home. This visit is free of charge and allow us to make sure that everyone is happy with introducing a Live in Care package.

With your help, we then build a personalised care plan that identifies the right level of support to meet your needs, while enabling you to continue to lead your life in the way you wish to.

Our care plans are flexible and responsive, regularly reviewed and updated to ensure we are always providing the right level of care.

As an example, your MyLife Live in Assistant will be happy to help with:

  • Showering and bathing
  • Dressing and personal care
  • Shaving and oral hygiene
  • Preparation of meals and drinks
  • Verbal prompting with medication
  • Escorted social visits and appointments
  • Light household duties such as cleaning, laundry and ironing
  • Help with post and correspondence
  • Light gardening
  • Shopping, either with the customer or on their behalf
  • Answering the telephone, making appointments and diary keeping
  • Support with hobbies
  • Companionship

Additionally, we can put in place more advanced care support to help with medication, catheter care, using hoists and caring for people with dementia.

Your MyLife Live in Assistant will work up to 8 weeks followed by 2 weeks off. With only 2 Assistants sharing the role, there is the consistency that allows for meaningful relationships to be formed.

In addition to your dedicated MyLife Assistants, our experienced office care team manages the Live in service, giving you the reassurance and comfort of knowing that you can always speak to someone from MyLife.

People may choose to engage Live in care services for a variety of reasons:

  • Practical, general help so they can continue living independently in their own home
  • Support for long term health conditions like Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s
  • Friendship and companionship
  • Short-term Live in help while recovering from an operation, illness or injury
  • Support for couples to prevent one partner from going into residential care
  • Respite for family carers to enjoy a break or holiday
  • Nurse-led, live in support for End of Life care

Your MyLife Assistant requirements

Your MyLife Assistant will need their own bedroom and a comfortable bed, along with somewhere to put their clothes. They can share a bathroom. Use of the washing machine, a television and access to the internet would make their stay more comfortable. Our Assistants do need to have a couple of hours a day to themselves. If you need support during this rest time, we can help to arrange this.
Your MyLife Assistant will be professional, well trained and fully supported in their work.

We care for our Assistants so they can care for you.
