One to one Tailored Care
We specialise in providing full time, one to one support. Our highly trained handpicked carers are truly passionate about caring and only providing the highest levels of care. Through our carers we are able to ensure personalised attention and support at all times.
From companionship through to personal care and to higher level care needs, our carers can support anyone to stay at home. We understand the importance of promoting and maintaining regular routines and preferences, including trips out and mealtime choices.
At A&R Guardian Services Ltd we are proud of our care team, without them we would not have the reputation that we are so proud to have today. Empathy, compassion, skill and commitment are just some of the attributes we ensure all of our carers have.
What to consider with Live in Care
There are many things to consider when contemplating how to handle the care of a loved one. The choice whether to opt for Live-in Care or to place your loved one in a Care Home really comes down to choosing a greater level of independence and flexibility or a more fixed regiment.
Whilst Care Homes suit the care needs of some individuals, there are many that are looking for an alternative. Live-in Care is the ideal solution for those that want to retain their independence, offering bespoke one-to-one support assistance in your own home on your own terms.
Live-in Care offers the flexibility of simple things such as eating what you want, going to bed when you want, and watching what you like on television. These may seem straight forward requests but the importance cannot be underestimated when considering the mental well-being of your loved one
A Company that Understands
Live-in care enables you to stay in your home, living your preferred lifestyle, safe in the knowledge that your carer will be with you every step of the way, supporting you in your daily routines.
Whether you are returning home from hospital or if your current care arrangements are just not enough, we can help.
Continuity of care & managed changeovers
Our carers typically work for a number of weeks at a time which really enables you to build an excellent working relationship and bond.
Uniquely, A&R Guardian Services Ltd provides a relief carer a few hours before your main carer takes a break for hand over purposes as standard and at no extra cost. This means that you are able to relax and know that all of your requirements are understood, needs are met and care will continue uninterrupted. This is particularly crucial for those with anxiety and memory difficulties.
Your Family and Friends
Family can ensure they are spending quality time with loved ones safe in the knowledge that the care and support provided is second to none. By having a live-in carer, family and friends can concentrate on being exactly that.
Not forgetting those other important members of the family – pets. Many of the people we support have pets and they of course form part of the care we provide. Pets are a source of comfort and it is well documented that their presence can promote wellbeing and contentment.
Many nursing or residential homes will not allow pets, and this can be heart breaking. Being able to stay in your own home, means that you will not have to find alternative homes for beloved pets, they can stay at your side – where they belong.
Finding Out More about Our Live-In Help
With independent living services from A&R Guardian Services Ltd you can always rest assured that the level of live-in help received by you or your loved one is of the highest possible standard.
Live-in care provides you with a Carer living in your home, and is perfect for those people who prefer to stay in the comfort of familiar surroundings. The family can visit on their own schedule and can have more hands on involvement if they choose to. A bespoke support plan, delivered on a one-to-one basis, is a level of personal care that Care Homes cannot compete with. Whilst the costs of Live-in care and Care Homes are comparable, the level of personalised care certainly isn’t.
WAKING OR SLEEPING NIGHT COVER
A&R Guardian Services Ltd can provide either a waking night, sleep-in, or mobile visiting night service to cover your overnight care requirements. Night cover is available between the hours of 22.00 and 08.00.
Waking night cover means the trained carer will be awake all night to undertake any care needs that may arise. If you have care requirements at regular intervals during the night, for example you need to change position or go to the toilet every couple of hours, the carer can perform those tasks but during the rest of the time the carer can undertake domestic duties such as laundry, cleaning, etc. as necessary.
If your care requirements mean you just need someone to be there just in case you need them then a sleep-in service may be the answer. In those circumstances the carer would need a bed to sleep in and would immediately respond to any requests for assistance. The sleep-in service works well with a tele care service that monitors for example, a person’s movement or continence and sends an alert to the carer when assistance is required
Please note that during the sleep-in service, if a carer is disturbed more than twice during the night, the sleep-in service automatically reverts to a waking night service.
The night service may be provided as part of a larger care package or as a short term measure to assist during a period of acute illness.
