Care in your own home 24-hours a day
Full time support, care and companionship in your own home
The Oakhaven Care live-in care service enables you to remain in the comfort of your own home with support. Our caregivers provide not only support with the activities of daily living, but also companionship, which can help combat loneliness and isolation.
Live-in care can provide peace of mind for family members who may worry about their loved ones living alone. Knowing that a trained caregiver is there to aid and support can be comforting and reassuring.
Why go to a residential care home when live-in care might be the answer?!
Live-in care is a home care service, where someone lives in your house to provide you with the help and support you may need. It can be a long-term solution to your care needs and a great alternative to having to go into a residential care home. It can be a good option for those who might need more assistance than is possible for visiting home care services.
Live-in support can also be respite care, offering short-term support for the person who is currently caring for you. This may enable them to take a short break or have a holiday. It can also support you after an operation or hospital stay to allow you to get home as quickly as possible. Most importantly, live-in care allows you to stay at home surrounded by all that you love.
More flexible than other types of care arrangements, live-in care allows you to maintain your independence while still receiving the care you need. Our live-in carers are available to care in homes throughout Hampshire and Dorset.

Your Live-in Care Assistant
We match a Live-in Care Assistant to support you with your daily needs. They are placed with you for a minimum of two weeks, often longer.
Your Live-in Care Assistant lives and sleeps in your property and would need to be provided with a private bedroom with a bed, clothes storage and a closable door.
Every day your Live-in Care Assistant will be on duty for 10 hours, with a 2-hour break. They are on call 24 hours so can respond to emergencies and anything urgent at other times.
