Leicester is one of the oldest cities in England, dating back at least 2,000 years ago. Being “old” as a city itself, Leicester is in the top 10 youngest cities in the UK, with the average age 36.9 years old. Although the inhabitants seem to be pretty young, the life expectancy is lower than the average national level, due to the city’s deprivation levels.
What is live-in care?
When an expertly trained carer lives in the home of the person they care for they are called live-in carer. This care option is more dedicated, allows the person that require care to enjoy a comfortable and independent life within the familiar surroundings of their own home.
A live-in carer assists with mobility problems and administers medications. But they also help with everyday tasks, including for example:
completing household chores and running errands
preparing meals and washing dishes
laundry and ironing
waking, feeding and caring for a pet
Live-in carers are also great companions. Many care recipients befriend with their carers and live together for a long time.
