Live-in Care

Live-in care in the comfort of your own home

Live-in care provides around the clock care and assistance to people in their own home. Whether you live alone or with a loved one we know from experience that most people would rather stay in their own home than move into residential care. Live-in care provides care and support as well as companionship, meaning that you can have a more enjoyable life and stay in the home you love.
 
Our Live-in Carers are exclusively employed by us to ensure a high quality service, providing a discreet and confidential service to our clients. They are all trained to a high standard and also receive on-going training and development to ensure they have the knowledge and skills to deliver the very best standard of care to our clients.
 
If you are unsure whether Live-in care is right for you, please call our Directors or Care Managers who will happily discuss your needs with you on 01494 678811 or email care@universal-care.co.uk.

Meet our Live-in Care Manager, Dawn

“I manage the live-in care side of our business, helping to build tailored support for our clients to keep them in their own homes for as long as possible.

I have always enjoyed looking after people and get a great deal of satisfaction by enabling people to lead an independent life. My first care job was a Carer, and I have since dedicated my life to Care!

Throughout my time in the care sector I have sadly witnessed poor care, and people not receiving the right support- this has made me determined to provide the best care and support that I possibly can.”

"As one of the families who have the benefit of your wonderful carers, I would like to say thank you for everything this year. Your carers are very special people and have made our lives much easier. With special mention to Debbie, Britt and Kadi, without whom our family would be in chaos. Thank you."
"I would like to say how very kind and caring your staff are towards my mother, their care is wonderful and she is very fond of both of them. It is a worry for me living 70 miles away but I know she is in good hands."
"We have used Universal Care for almost three years for help with care for my disabled son. The staff are all pleasant and helpful and the office staff do all they can to accommodate our needs. They even send clients a small gift and card at Christmas! They make us feel valued."
"I would like to thank Universal Care for all the help they have given me, first in looking after my husband, and then more recently over the last three months for me. With their professional, friendly and caring attention, I now feel strong enough to manage on my own. I would not hesitate in recommending Universal Care to anyone who is looking for care for a loved one."
"They were extraordinarily professional, caring and efficient, and each of them displayed a wonderful humanity and bond with my father that made his final years peaceful, comfortable, and even blissful. When it came to his passing he was able to do so in his own bed at home in a quiet dignified and relaxed manner."
"I am very pleased with the high standard of care my husband receives. My husband has dementia and is in a wheelchair. It is fair to say that he is difficult, especially for me! Having the carers has made a huge difference to my capacity to cope and survive."
"We were extremely pleased with the thoughtful care and attention shown over the 3 days we required help. She enjoyed having the carer to look after her and we would not hesitate to call on Universal Care again for their services."
"We have been very satisfied and happy with the service. Our current carer is a treasure and we are hoping to see a great deal of her in future."
"I found the response from the office team enthusiastic, coherent and wanting to help immediately. The visit for consultation at my home was very helpful and professional, and a carer was put in place for me on the date and the hour I requested."
