Live-in care

This is an important alternative to residential care.

As we become older, many of us wish to remain as independent as possible whilst staying in our own home, amongst familiar surroundings. Acquire Care can make this possible. Our helpful friendly carers can help you live how you wish. The live in care supplied would follow a tailor-made care plan to fit in with your existing preferences but would be reviewed frequently and therefore be flexible. As the name suggests, the carer would live in the house with the person they are looking after. Live-in care means peace of mind for you and your family as someone who is caring and responsible will always be there.

We provide live in care services in Oxford and throughout Oxfordshire, a private bedroom must be available for the carer. The resources for their meals must also be provided.

Training our carers to the highest standard possible is an important part of Acquire Care’s ethos. By having a specialist trainer with in-house training facilities based in Oxford, we ensure that all our carers are fully trained and vetted as required by the Care Quality Commission. This includes the completion of Independent Safeguarding Authority and Disclosure Barring Services checks. These were previously known as Criminal Records Bureau checks. References are also required.

The training covers everything from Moving and Handling, Health and Safety to Food Hygiene and Medication. Throughout their career, our carers will be assessed with on-going training given. This means that as your needs change, the carers will be able to adapt and assist you at all times. Our carers always carry an Acquire Care identification badge and wear an Acquire Care uniform.
