We are here to help. “Live in Care Ireland” is the agency which can help you hire the best carer for you and your loved ones. Our slogan: “Care at Home, Not in a Home” is pretty much self explanatory.
Affordable Home Care
We aim to provide Affordable Home Care solutions. Unlike many other agencies practices our model ensures that you pay the minimum possible per hour wages to the carer you have hired. Our carer finding service costs very little in comparison with other placement agencies. You can obtain Tax Relief on all services used if your loved one is incapacitated.
At the same time our caregivers are excellent professionals, with great experience in the elderly care and home help fields. Throughout the placement duration we provide ongoing support to our clients and carers.
Our caregivers offer the full package of social services for the support and care of the elderly. They work in the area of the so-called 24-hour presence in the home of the person being cared for.
Benefits of the Live in Care
With the live-in-care service, you can very successfully exclude the need to use the so-called Night Care service which can cost over two hundred euro per night. With a live-in-carer you can have an experienced and devoted person who takes care for your loved ones whenever it is necessary including during nights.
However, the livein care is a lot cheaper in comparison with night care. This is very important if specific conditions are present. For example if the service user suffers from advanced phase of Dementia, not to mention Alzheimer disease. We are specialists in Dementia Care. We have great experience with carers specially trained to handle dementia and Alzheimer cases, because not every one can take such cases. And we know how important is to ensure a fast change of personnel if the caregiver is not accepted by the service user with such diagnosis. But we are not limited to such conditions. We have carers who have experience with all kinds of diseases and conditions typical of the elderly.
Our Best Practice
We carefully interview the care assistants we work with. We approve positive people with great desire to to work with aged persons. Some of the goals are ensure the provision of comfort in the everyday life of the elderly, to support their independence, to promote decisions in all questions regarding their way of life, so that the elderly feel useful, regardless of the fact that they cannot completely take care of themselves.
Our nurses are mentally stable and steadfast, responsible and physically healthy. They can easily take care of another person’s life.
The care and support provided are carried out as delicately as possible.
The Carer’s Tasks
Some of the usual activities of the social assistants include help with:
Personal hygiene / shaving; bathing /
Help to use of bathroom and WC
Food preparation / Meal planning
Help with wheelchair / walker
Light house work
Accompanying to social events such as visiting friends, church or other institutions
Most common types of care available throught the Live-in-Care service
Possibly the hardest type of care depending on the service user condition. Only experienced carers can handle such cases.
Similar to the Alzheimer’s care. You need special carer to handle dementia related problems.
Care provided by member of health professions. Our carers do not provide any kind of medical or health service. Yet some of them may have such qualifications from their home country, which can be helpful when monitoring specific conditions. They can alert you on when contact your doctor.
In a sense all care is actually palliative care. It does not cure it relieves. It is aimed to optimize the quality of life and mitigating suffering
It focuses on the social aspects of the aged care
It can include all of the above types of care, however it is provided during night.
