The Disadvantages of Having a Live-in Care Worker

A lot of people take pleasure in the social life of being in a residential care home, the relief of not having to manage their own home or obligation of controlling their affairs. Giving up some of their personal privacy, but taking pleasure in a chance to be continuously in contact with others.
Whilst a live-in carer fee can be a lesser amount than the cost ofa residential home, it's not cheap to have care workers accessible 24- hours a day, nevertheless, based on eligibility, personal budgets and direct payments mean it is possible for care to be state funded.

Although in our experience, the care worker soon becomes a friend rather than a stranger, and the support and help soon outweigh the wish to live on your own, or even the alternative of the residential home.
Care workers have to have breaks and holidays and spend time with their own families, unless going through a company that offers a completely managed service, such as Total Living Care, it may be a problem to find short- term cover.
