The health and wellbeing magazine which is distributed in Eastbourne and across Sussex features an article from Everycare Eastbourne about their live in care service.
Jess Holding, Everycare’s live in care manager said “live in care is still relatively unknown and yet it offers an affordable alternative to residential care. I’ve recently done a number of presentations to groups such as the WI and it’s surprising how few people even realised what live in care is!”
Jess added “because we are a local company we can provide live in care to the people of Eastbourne and the surrounding area but we can also ensure that we provide comprehensive support and back up from a highly experienced office team 24 hours a day, 7 days a week”

Andy Taylor, one of the directors at Everycare Eastbourne, has been invited to be at the Health+ Care show at Londons Excel on the 28th and 29th of June this year due to the companies commitment to increased awareness of Live in Care as an affordable alternative to nursing or residential homes.
Andy said ‘we have seen quite an increase in the levels of interest in our live in care service over the last few years. However, it is still surprising how few people know that live in care exists at all or the huge benefits there are to the individual versus residential care. The show gives us an opportunity to explain to more people how live in care can benefit them’

Live in carers for the elderly, although still only catering for a tiny proportion of the older population are now becoming an increasingly mainstream choice.
But the choice between finding a care home for relatives unable to manage on their own and leaving them to struggle on in their home could become a thing of the past amid surging demand for live-in “companion carers”.
Once a virtually unheard-of option, a small network of companies providing full-time live-in carers, say they are experiencing a rise in demand in the wake of waves of scandals about standards in care homes and traditional homecare agencies as well as headlines over soaring fees. According to the Live-in Care Hub, a network of 14 small and medium sized companies offering live-in care set up two years ago to promote the sector at present only around 10,000 families currently make use of it although all have reported growing interest. By comparison, around 290,000 older people in England and Wales live in care homes, according to the last census.

As the government struggles with the social care budget the true scale of the problem is highlighted by the Local Government Association.
As part of their review of possible alternative ways to pay for the care of our ageing population a recent review indicated that ‘The numbers of elderly people going without care, paying for it themselves or relying on family and friends currently outstrip those getting council help by four to one.’
