Live In Care Package 1
This is Joan – she has been living in the same home for the past 90 years. She was diagnosed with dementia a year ago and has since struggled to remember things, requiring assistance with day-to-day tasks.
So she could remain in the comfort of her own home, Burley’s Home Care got to know Joan, her needs and preferences and matched her with one of our live in carers, Anne.
Anne assists Joan with:
- Meal preparation
- Social activities
- Doctors appointment
- General support

Is live in care cheaper than a residential care home?
There are numerous factors to take into consideration when it comes to estimating the potential live in care costs vs residential care, though typically, live in care almost always ends up more cost effective.
The average cost of residential care rose by 9.6% between 2016 and 2017, and with the number of people over 65 requiring 24 hour-care expected to increase by a third over the next 20 years, there’s a high likelihood that residential care home prices will only continue to rise as demands for a space increase.
Live in care costs are unaffected by many of the overhead factors that determine the price of residential care, making it more affordable overall. Our live in care service enables you or your loved one to remain in the comfort of their own home and receive the best possible care.
