About Us

Live-in Care is extremely flexible and can suit people of all ages and with a range of different needs. Live-in Care is when one of our professional care workers lives with you in your home. Whether you simply need companionship, support with everyday activities or even more complex care that requires the supervision of our in-house nursing team, we can work with you to create a care plan and provide around the clock care. Wherever you are in England and Wales, we will find a care worker who fits with your personality, hobbies and interests, to provide the support you need, whenever you need it, so you can live a better quality of life in the comfort of your
familiar surroundings.

National Live-In Manager

I have worked in the care sector since 2007, specialising in supporting adults and older people. I am committed to supporting people to live in their own homes for as long as they choose and believes that everyone has the right to do this. I am passionate about personalised and tailored care to meet the needs and choices of the individuals we support.

Ellen Phillips

Service Manager

I have worked in the care sector since 2003, in both a visiting care and live-in care setting, supporting people with a range of different needs. I am determined to support as many people as possible to remain independent and safe within their own homes for as long as possible. I am an advocate for Live-in Care, and I passionately believe this is the best possible care anyone can have. I strive to make a real positive difference in people’s lives.

Kiran Marshman

Service Manager

After gaining a degree in Health and Social Care, I have worked in the Health and Social Care Sector since 2008. I am passionate about supporting people to live in their own homes for as long as they choose and consider this to be an individual’s right. I am determined to work in a person-centered way, to ensure every individual is supported with care and support that meets their needs and choices. I strive for the best quality of service for each individual with care and support needs.

Martin’s Story

Martin was diagnosed with Primary Progressive MS in 1997 and is now in the later stages of the disease.  He relies on the support of his Live-in Care worker 24-hours a day.

“Living in my own home and keeping my independence has always been very important to me and with the help of Radis Community Care, I am able to do this,” said Martin.

“My care worker lives with me and supports me with everything I need.  They help me with all of my personal care, cooking my meals, making sure my house is clean and taking me out in the community.  If I need any support overnight, my Live-in Care worker is there on hand to help me as I need.

“Without my Live-in Care workers, I would not be able to live safely and independently in my own home and would not be able to enjoy the things I love doing such as going to the cinema, going to music concerts and out to the parks.”

Stay in your own home

Live-in is unlike other types of care, where a fully trained carer stays with you in your own home, rather than just popping in to visit.  This means that you will have access to flexible support through the day or even overnight when you need it, with the peace of mind of knowing a helping hand is close by.

You may feel moving into a care home as your only option, but Radis’ Live-in service may be just the alternative you’re looking for to help you stay independent your own home, where you want to be.

24/7 flexible care

Having a professional live in carer staying in your home means that they can be flexible and fit around your needs and preferences.
Typically, your carer will be able to be at hand for 10 or more hours per day, fitting their breaks around you, and able to respond promptly should you need support unexpectedly.
By working in this flexible way, Live-in Care is a practical solution for many people who have changing needs or may need the reassurance of help at hand to fit around their normal lifestyle.  In fact, with Live-in Care no two days need to be the same!

Whatever your needs or circumstances

Radis’ Live-in Care provides support to people with many different needs and circumstances, and can provide short or long term care.
Maybe you just want a live in companion to give you peace of mind someone is there?  Perhaps your needs are changing or unpredictable?  Or do you have a disability, suffer from dementia, Parkinson’s or other long-term condition?  Even with nursing or respite care needs, live-in care can be suitable for many people and a positive alternative to a care, nursing or residential home.
No two people need the same support, but here are some examples of how Live-in Care can support you:
  • Preparing and eating meals
  • Household chores
  • Getting up in the morning and going to bed
  • Washing and dressing
  • Bathing assistance
  • Going to the toilet and continence care
  • Help with (including administration of) medicines
  • Getting out and about to shops and other places
  • Looking after pets
  • Health needs, including nursing home care

Understanding your needs

Before we provide support for the first time, we will visit you, introduce Radis and ask you and your family exactly what support you need, and how you would like it.  If needed we will visit again, until we fully understand your needs and wishes.  We will answer all questions you have, so that you are clear about what to expect from us.

Using this information, we will work with you to draw up a support plan and make clear all costs.  We will also offer you choices of carers who we feel are most suitable for your circumstances.

When you are happy we will agree a start date, but make sure we check everything is working fine with you at regular intervals.

Your carer

You can be assured that we provide all our staff with comprehensive training, not only in providing care, but also the flexible nature of live-in care.  Whatever your needs, we will make sure your carer has specific training to provide whatever care you need, including understanding you and any conditions or disabilities you have.

We choose staff with strong values, suitability for live-in care and experience.  Live-in care is different to other types of care, and so we are careful to select staff with the right qualities.

Carers live in a spare room in your home, and so we vet them carefully, make sure they are respectful of your home, and whilst staying can seamlessly fit in, working around your individual lifestyle and preferences.

Typically you will have only one or two main staff (covering each other), with one carer staying for two or more weeks at a time with you.  In this way carers can become very familiar with your routines.

How much does Live-in Care cost?

Costs can depend very much upon your needs and how much time each day the carer is likely to support you. 

In general costs can vary between £1078 to £1785 per week, making Live-in Care very comparable to residential care, but with the advantage of you not having the emotional upheaval of having to move out of your own home.

For family carers looking for short-term care for their loved one whilst they have a break, we also offer a respite Live-in Care service with prices ranging between £1533 to £1925 per week depending on individual needs.

Get In Touch!

One of our Specialist Care Team will respond within 24 hours via a phone call.

Your Free Assessment

We will visit you at home for free to carry out an assessment, tailoring a care package specifically to you and your needs.

Start Date

Once you and your loved ones are completely happy, we will agree on a start date for your brand-new live-in care.

Daily Quality Checks

You will have a dedicated Service Manager who can be there for you 24/7 and listen to all of your feedback and requests.
