Our Live-In Care Plans


Everyday tasks can get harder with different conditions, whether it be a minor injury or more long-term conditions. Rivendell provides personal care and can help with continence management, administering medication and rehabilitation and enablement programmes provided by a health and social care professional.


We recognise that having a clean and tidy home is very important to all of our clients and their families. This can often be difficult to maintain when living with certain conditions.

Our team can help with dusting and vacuuming, cleaning the bathroom and kitchen, changing the bed linen and towels, laundry and ironing, cleaning floors, helping with shopping and supporting correspondence.


It can feel very isolating being at home on your own for long periods of time. The importance of companionship cannot be underestimated in maintaining alertness, engagement, and general well-being. No matter who you are, having support and friendships is one of the most important aspects of life. We handpick our live-in carers because they love what they do and they aim to add a little sparkle to the day of our care users.

Our live-in carers can be available to support contact with family and friends, engage in a hobby in or away from the home, or join in with community activities. We can help support scheduled appointments, e.g. doctors, hospitals, district nurses, plumbers, gasmen, cinema trips, theatre shows, social visits and more.

From the local amateur dramatic society to partaking in gentle exercise, our carers will accompany and assist our care users. We can also set up Skype calls with loved ones here or abroad and send photographs of meals and the environment–all offering peace of mind that your loved one is receiving the best possible care.


For the body to work properly, it is essential to have a balanced and nutritious diet. We understand that sometimes it can be hard to know what to eat. This is why we can work alongside a diet plan created by a doctor or dietician, ensuring we serve meals that are both tasty and nutritious. Along with sticking to a meal plan, our live-in carers can attend your weekly shop with you to help implement this plan into your everyday diet.

Our staff work alongside a culturally diverse mix of clients and can follow religious and cultural requirements. For example, when providing care for our observant Jewish clientele, we will teach our care staff about keeping a kosher household and keeping shomer Shabbat.

24-Hour Care in London

As well as live-in care, we also offer 24-hour care in London. It’s important to note that standard live-in care is different from 24-hour care. 

With our live-in care service, a qualified carer is present in the home 24/7. They typically work up to 10 hours per day and are then available ad-hoc throughout the night (with up to 2 wake ups per night). 24-hour care in London goes above and beyond this with a carer being available on-call whenever you may need throughout the night.

24-hour care is particularly beneficial for those with medical conditions that require around the clock monitoring and treatment. In such cases a second carer will be available on call throughout the night to ensure continuity of care whilst your regular carer earns a well-deserved break.

Case Study

Round the clock Care


Michael is a 74-year-old retired headteacher who lives in Hampstead, North-West London. He was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease five years ago. Michael has two children, his son who lives a couple of hours away from London and his daughter who lives in Spain.


Since the passing of Michael’s wife, Michael struggled with the challenges of living independently with Parkinson’s disease. Michael has several issues:

Mobility Challenges: Michael experiences severe tremors, muscle stiffness, and difficulties with balance when travelling from each room. His motor skills are compromised, making simple tasks like dressing, eating, and getting around the house challenging. Michael was no longer able to button his clothing. Michael was admitted to the Royal Free Hospital after a series of falls. 

Medication Management: When Michael has a bad day of tremors he struggles to walk around his property and often misses medication. 

Emotional Well-Being: Michael suffers from low moods due to his wife’s passing and his health deterioration.

Nutrition: Michael would commonly eat sandwiches or microwave meals. His diet was poor, and he did not have much nutrition in his diet. Michaels daughter said that this was due to difficulty with meal preparation.

Assessment and Intervention:

Michael’s children were unaware of what service would be best for Michael but like the idea of having full time, round the clock care to address his isolation and safety at home. 

Initial Assessment: The care manager visited to complete the assessment and pre assessment. We found out about current routines, routines that Michael would like to do with the support of a carer and much more about preferences. 

Care Plan Development: Michael discussed his current routine and what he would like to achieve from having a carer as well as times or triggers that make him feel unwell. A risk assessment was completed with a focus on falls. The care plan noted information such as medication schedules, physical therapy exercises and a list of his favourite nutritious meals.

Emotional Support: The caregiver provided emotional support, engaging Michael in conversation, and helping him manage the psychological aspects of living with a chronic illness.

Social Engagement: The caregiver organised trips to the London Library as well as museums and regular visits to Hampstead High Street. Once a month the carer and Michael visited London’s West End for a meal or a trip to the theatre.


Michael and his small team of carers bonded quickly, Michael felt less isolated and regained a more active social life. He enjoyed the company of the carer and felt safer knowing that if he had a bad day the carer was around to help. 

Medications were taken daily at the prescribed times which meant that Michael had less tremors. Michael also felt better from eating a more nutritious diet.

Michael’s family were able to rest assured knowing that a trained carer was always present.

Live-In Care IN London FAQs

What is Live in Care?

Live-in carers provide a wide range of services for individuals who need help taking care of themselves and their home. A tailored care plan outlines the needs of the person, whether they need help with managing a condition or need extra support in completing daily tasks. Live-in carers can use this plan to provide a personalised service.

Live-in care is often seen as an alternative to moving to a care home. A live-in carer is able to help with daily routine tasks such as assistance with getting ready for the day, washing, preparing meals, domestic support, companionship and medication administration. The security of having a carer present at all times can help reassure individuals who are concerned about having falls.

What are the Benefits of Live in Carers?

Is Live-In Care Better Than a Care Home?

Live-in care can be much more beneficial for your loved ones than moving into a care home.

This can be particularly important for those with certain conditions such as dementia.
