What Is Live In Care
Live-In Care is exactly as it sounds; a professional Care Assistant lives with the Client/s in their home providing a bespoke home care service as desired by the Clients themselves.
We provide assistance to a diverse range of people from 18 years upwards and cater for couples as well as those living alone. These extend from those that are seeking companionship and assistance with housekeeping, to those that are mentally or physically frail or those needing palliative or End-of-Life care
The cost of a live-in carer represents good value for money especially when compared to alternative choices. Please click here to find out more on Live-in Care costs.
Respite Care is where we can offer Live-in Care for a temporary period of time such as recovering back at home after being in hospital or if your usual carer needs to take a break. Please click here to see find out more about costs for Respite Care.

Personal & Tailored Packages
At Melody Care we want to ensure that each of our clients has a tailored package specific to their needs and desires.
Our process begins when you make your first contact with us. We talk with you about the service you want and begin to understand what we need to do to meet your requirements.
Our Care Manager will arrange a visit to discuss your needs further and to talk to you about what we can offer. We will also conduct a thorough assessment including gathering information from those closest to you, whether social or medical, in order to provide a bespoke, client focused package.
Once we have all the information necessary and understand our client’s needs, we will suggest suitable carers and begin to develop a Care Plan.
