Types of Home Care Services: An Overview

In South Ayrshire, you have access to three primary types of home care services with PrimeCarers: Hourly Care, Overnight Care, and Live-in Care. Each of these services can be tailored to meet the unique needs of individual households. Understanding the nuances of each type can help you make an informed decision.

Hourly Care

Hourly care is an excellent option for those who require assistance with daily tasks but still wish to maintain a certain degree of independence. The carer visits your home for a certain number of hours in a day, aiding with chores such as cooking, cleaning, personal care, and administering medication. Opting for an hourly care service allows you to determine when and how much help you require.

Overnight Care

It can be particularly worrying to think about a loved one being without assistance throughout the night. For example, those with dementia can often find the night times confusing and distressing. That's precisely where Overnight Care comes in. This service ensures a trained carer is within the home during the night, ready to assist in any way necessary. It provides the peace of mind that your loved one is being taken care of, even if you cannot be there.

Live-In Care

Live-in care involves a carer residing in the home of the person in need of care. As the highest form of home care, it provides round-the-clock support and assistance in a familiar environment. From managing medical conditions to lending companionship, a live-in carer offers comprehensive and personalised care.
