KentSCP Live-in Service
KentSCP’s Live-in care service is a high quality 24 hour live-in service that provides a personalised care service to people of all ages, disabilities and needs, in their own home.
Some of the more usual reasons for selecting a live-in care service may include:
You are no longer able to cope on your own
You may need assistance with Personal care (eg washing, dressing etc)
You may have mobility issues
You may be prone to falls and accidents
You may need assistance with household duties including laundry and meal preparation
You may feel lonely and would like some companionship
You may be recovering from a hospital stay or an illness
You do not want to go into a care home at this point
You want to remain in the comfort of your own home with familiar surroundings
KentSCP’s Live-in Care service is regulated by the CQC (Care Quality Commission). You can be assured that our recruitment process complies with the Care Standards Act 2000 and all current employment legislation. Our care workers will be fully trained in line with the Common Induction Standards and will all have a full enhanced CRB (Police) background check.
The Service provided will include as standard:
Companionship, including accompanying on social activities and appointments
Housekeeping and light domestic duties, including Laundry and Shopping
Personal care, including assistance with Washing, dressing, toileting/Continence
Preparation of fresh and healthy meals
Assisting with medication management
Please remember, our care workers are not trained nurses, however specialist training can be arranged via the district Nurse for more complex care, such as Stoma Care, Peg Feeding, Catheter Care etc.
Live-in Care can be arranged for short periods, such as when recuperating from an illness, or for the long-term. In most cases, we will introduce two care workers to you, who will normally work two weeks on and two weeks off (swapping with the second care worker). We will endeavour to ensure that you will have the same care worker(s) throughout the duration of the live-in service.
KentSCP operate a 24hour out-of-hours service. Our On-call staff are available to answer your emergency calls and will be able to help you if you have any problems that need dealing with once the office has closed at 5.pm and weekends.
This service is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
