Compassionate Support: The Vital Role of Arbour Care’s Live-in Carers

  27th June, 2023

When it comes to ensuring the well-being and comfort of those requiring assistance, live-in carers play a vital role. Arbour Companions and Care, a leading provider of care services, understands the significance of these dedicated professionals. Our team offers round-the-clock care and support to individuals in the comfort of their own homes. We want to highlight the invaluable contributions made by Arbour Care’s live-in carers and the profound impact they have on the lives of those they assist.

Companionship and Emotional Support

Loneliness and isolation can have a detrimental effect on a person’s physical and mental well-being, especially with the rise of the digital age. Arbour Care’s live-in carers provide much-needed companionship to clients, helping to alleviate feelings of loneliness and creating a supportive and nurturing environment. Through engaging conversations, participating in activities together, and being a constant presence in a familiar home setting, our carers become trusted companions, fostering a sense of connection and improving the overall quality of life for those they care for.

Personalised Care and Assistance

Every individual has unique needs and preferences when it comes to their care requirements. Arbour Care’s live-in carers recognise and respect this diversity, delivering personalised care and assistance tailored to each client. Whether it’s help with personal hygiene, mobility support, medication management, or a hot meal to be prepared, Arbour Care’s team of professionals ensure that individuals receive the specific care they need to maintain their independence and dignity.

Enhanced Safety and Security

For individuals with mobility challenges or health conditions, the safety and security of their home environment are of utmost importance. Live-in carers from Arbour Care provide constant supervision and support, mitigating the risk of accidents and emergencies. From fall prevention measures to prompt response during health crises, our carers remain calm and professional, offering peace of mind to both clients and their families.

Continuity of Care

One significant advantage of our wonderful live-in care team is the consistency they provide in terms of care delivery. Unlike shift-based care models, where multiple caregivers rotate, our live-in carers offer continuity in support. This continuity allows carers to develop a deeper understanding of the client’s needs, preferences, and routines, resulting in more effective care provision. Building a strong rapport and trust with clients also fosters a sense of familiarity and stability, which is particularly valuable for individuals who may be living with conditions such as dementia or Alzheimer’s.

Support for Families

Arbour Care’s live-in carers not only provide assistance to their clients but also offer a solid infrastructure of support to their families. Caring for a loved one can be emotionally and physically demanding, often leaving family members overwhelmed and burnt out as well as feeling guilty when to set their own boundaries. Families can share the responsibility of caregiving, allowing them to focus on nurturing their relationship with their loved one rather than being consumed by the practical aspects of care. 

Live-in carers from Arbour Companions and Care deliver care and support to the highest-standard, making a significant difference in the lives of individuals requiring care and assistance. By providing companionship and support to families, our care professionals enable individuals to maintain their independence, dignity, and well-being in the comfort of their own homes. Their unwavering commitment and dedication truly embody the essence of compassionate support, offering solace and a helping hand to those who need it most.

  • "Arbour provided live-in carers for my wife for six years from 2017-2023 including the pandemic. My main impression is of a very professional organisation in which owners and staff worked all the time to provide the support the client needed at as high a standard as possible. They gave equal attention to statutory requirements, care plans and staff training and never cut any corners."


  • "The support that we have had from Arbour Care has been, quite literally, lifesaving. They found an amazing carer to look after my elderly and disabled husband, who is very experienced, kind and thoughtful. She has made an enormous positive difference to the quality of our lives and I will always be grateful to her and cannot thank her enough."
