Visiting care in Sefton to suit you

- Medication – Gentle reminders to remember your medication or help with swallowing.
- Routine calls – Morning and evening calls, ensuring you’re safe and able to get in and out of bed.

Live-in care across Sefton
As the going says, it does what it says on the tin. A live-in carer will live with you, in your home and support with round-the-clock care as and when you require it. All our carers draw on years of knowledge and have ample experience working with various conditions including motor neurone disease, cerebral palsy and dementia.
Moving out of your family home can be daunting and often causes excess anxiety, but with live-in care, you’ll remain at home whilst receiving high-quality, friendly care. Within our Sefton branch, there’s also support from experienced live-in care managers, here to support our live-in carers and customers. As well as offering more complex care at home for needs such as PEG feeding, catheters and stomas, live-in care can help with:
- Recovering in comfortable surroundings after a hospital discharge
- Getting out and about in the Sefton community
- Remaining at home with a partner or loved one
- Keeping your beloved pets at home with you
- Receiving specialist care in your home to suit your requirements
Live-in care provides consistency of care day and night when you need it most, but that’s not all, live-in care offers you and your family peace of mind that you’re in the best possible hands.
Domiciliary care in Sefton
Also known as home care, domiciliary care lets you or your loved one be in full control of your care. Led by you, the Sefton team can provide intensive or lighter care to support your pre-existing routine.
You may need help getting to the shops or visiting friends at the local coffee shop, or even help with medication, either way, our professional care team can assist. One of the main benefits of domiciliary care is that it provides friends and families with the reassurance that their loved one is being fully supported.
I’ve been a visiting carer for nearly five years now, and really enjoy it! The flexibility helps me to stay at home with my children in the daytime and work evenings and weekends.

Elderly care for you or your loved ones
Taking that first step in accepting care can be difficult, we understand. It may be that you simply need a reminder to take your medication, or someone to help cook your meals, whatever your needs, preserving your independence is our priority.
Elderly care can be interchangeable and increase in regularity and intensity, whenever required. Having an extra hand around the house can often take a huge weight off your and your family’s mind.
Respite care for short-term breaks
A great solution for when your regular caregivers needs a rest or you or your loved one needs intensive, short-term care after an illness or injury. Respite care keeps disruption to a minimum, from a few visits per week to having a carer live with you in your home, temporarily.
Our Sefton team can provide you with the short or longer term cover that you may need to ensure you have care in place for:
- Hospital discharge – If you need care after a spell in hospital to get you back on your feet.
- Emergencies – When your regular carer is unable to be there, perhaps due to a family emergency.
- Short breaks – Allows time for your carer to convalesce whilst you are still cared for.
- One-off occasions – When there are special events that you want to attend that requires some assistance – perhaps a wedding or milestone birthday celebration.
