When a relative needs round the clock care, many families come to a point where a big decision needs to be made. It’s a difficult one and one that can cause stress and anxiety throughout. The thought of a loved one being moved into a care home because they are unable to look after themselves is a heartbreaking one. Ranger Home Care have another solution. We provide Live in care in the Guildford area, which is not only a more affordable option than moving to a care home, but means you won’t have to make many changes at home.
Ranger Home Care offers much more than just a carer living with your family. There are a range of options for those of different ages with different requirements. To enquire to see if live in care would suit your family member in Guildford, then call our team for a chat on 01252 850040.
Could a live in carer keep you in your home in Guildford?
With our live in care service, we offer your family member the chance to stay in their home and live their life how they choose to. This means there is some flexibility with the restrictions in comparison to a care home. You will have more freedom to choose what to eat and also the ability to watch your favourite TV programme. Everything is down to them, but that’s not the only thing we can provide. Our staff are highly trained and will be matched with your relative, not only by their skills but also on their personality. It’s very important to us that our carers and the client get on well. After all, they will be living under the same roof. When it comes to choosing you a live in carer, we always follow the same ethos: if we wouldn’t welcome one of our carers into our own home, we wouldn’t send them to yours.
Our carers in Guildford are hand picked to the highest standards. With thorough training, we ensure that they are highly effective communicators, respectful and understand that they represent Ranger Home Care and uphold our extremely high standards. Our process is designed to make sure that the clients and carers are matched together in perfect harmony. We would first have a meeting with the client and their family to establish that we can provide assistance in their day to day life, also to manage their specific medical conditions. If all are happy to move onto the next stage of the process then we would find a compatible live in carer to suit the needs of the client.
We also offer live in care for younger patients, those who are perhaps in their 20s, 30s, or 40s. We think that living in your own home as opposed to living in a care home will allow them their independence. We are aware that there will be no two clients alike. Our staff who work in Guildford are trained in a range of skills that apply to specialist areas of care, which include Dementia, Osteoporosis, Diabetes, and Palliative Care. Ranger Home Care will also liaise with external parties (such as GPs, Physiotherapists and Occupational Health) to ensure that everyone is on the same page and delivering your care to meet your requirements, including making sure all necessary equipment is in place.
What will a live in carer do for you?

- Personal Care
