Short Term Live in Care
We at Orchid Care are proud to offer a range of comprehensive care services to individuals caring for a family member full time. We understand that caring is a full-time job in and of itself, which can make it difficult to find the time you need to socialise, relax, spend time with friends, and just live your own life for a while. In order to provide carers with the assistance they need, we have designed a short term live in care plan that ensures both you, and the person you are caring for, are always as well-supported as you can possibly be.
About Orchid Care’s short term live in care
Our short term live in care plan is
designed with two primary goals in mind:
- You, the carer, are
able to enjoy a period of respite from your caring duties, so you can relax,
visit friends and family, and take a little time for yourself.
- The person you care
for can be assured of a high standard of 24-hour live in care during your
respite, in an environment that is familiar to
Our live in care plan is
essentially a way of ensuring both the needs of you and the person you are
caring for are fully met. You can enjoy a break thanks to the peace of mind of
knowing your family member’s needs are met, while the person you care for can
relax in their own home while still benefiting from attentive, professional,
and highly-qualified care – the best of both worlds.

How we configure our live-in care plans
First and foremost, all of our
plans begin with a thorough assessment of your current caring requirements and
routines. We will then provide a support plan that echoes your established
routine, detailing the care levels your family member will receive while you
When the care period begins, you
will receive regular updates from your family member’s dedicated care manager,
so you can be sure that all is well at home. Furthermore, you can also be
confident that the live-in carer is well supported and supervised at all times

The benefits of Orchid Care respite live in care
- Simple service.
We will do all we can to ensure that we can perfectly align with your existing
caring schedule in a stress-free, straightforward way.
- Less upheaval.
Conventional respite care usually involves a long process of relocating your
family member for the duration; with live in care, such a process is
unnecessary, which makes the transition all the simpler for everyone involved.
independence for you. You can enjoy the opportunity to take a break and
refresh as and when required, safe in the knowledge that your family member’s
needs will still be taken care of.
- One-to-one care.
Care homes can be hugely beneficial, but they do limit the amount of one-to-one
time a carer has with each individual. In contrast, a short-term live in carer
will solely focus on your family member in order to ensure their comfort and
happiness is maintained at all times.
- Explore future
plans. If you have considered a long-term live in carer in the past, our
respite live in care option is an excellent way of testing the service and seeing
how it works for you and your family member.
