Why Live in Care is the safest option during COVID-19
“The virus that causes COVID-19 infects people of all ages. However, evidence to date suggests that two groups of people are at a higher risk of getting severe COVID-19 disease. These are older people (that is people over 60 years old); and those with underlying medical conditions (such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, and cancer).
The risk of severe disease gradually increases with age starting from around 40 years. It’s important that adults in this age range protect themselves and in turn protect others that may be more vulnerable. WHO has issued advice for these two groups and for community support to ensure that they are protected from COVID-19 without being isolated, stigmatised, left in a position of increased vulnerability or unable to access basic provisions and social care.”

At Eclipse HomeCare, we offer Live in Care services where one of our friendly and experienced caregivers lives in your home to provide round the clock support. Live-in care is believed to be one of the safest options for those who require care and support during the COVID-19 outbreak, as the number of people entering and exiting your home is minimised. Our Live in Carers can support with:
- Ordering and collecting medications
- Assistance with mobility
- Management of and administering medication
- Personal care, dressing and washing, and infection control
- General household chores such as cooking, cleaning and laundry
- Going out to the shops or helping you with your online ordering
- Companionship whilst self-isolating
- Comfort and safety
- Peace of mind
- Our live-in caregivers are classed as key workers and can therefore access shops during allocated additional hours
