Live-In Care

Live-In Care enables you to remain living independently in your own home.

What Makes Us Different?

We recognise that people are different and therefore recruit live-in carers specifically for you, taking into consideration your personality, your likes and dislikes, your hobbies and other things that are important to you.  We are a Cumbrian based organisation and currently only work in Cumbria recruiting our staff from the local area.  We understand that living with someone who is not a family member can be a huge commitment for you and the choice of your carer is therefore crucial.

We employ our locally recruited staff directly and we meet all new staff and have face to face interviews with them to ensure their suitability for the post of live-in carer.  We find out about their work history, their hobbies and their likes and dislikes so that we can match them to you as closely as possible.

How do I organise my care?

You can contact our Care Manager, Heather and she will come and see you and find out what your preferences are and assess what type of carer would be a good match for you.  She will consider things like whether you are a pet lover or if you enjoy a particular kind of music and will find out about who you might prefer such as a quiet person or someone who is very jolly!  You can tell Heather your preferences and then she will then recruit someone who meets your specific requirements, for instance you might want someone from your local town to care for you and she would then concentrate her efforts on recruiting locally for you.

Eden Country Care Praised by Watchdog

Eden Country Care praised by CQC

Eden Country Care received an excellent report from the governments health watchdog - the Care Quality Commission after CQC inspectors visited their company last week.  Having talked with clients, carers, family members, staff and even commissioners of the service Eden Country Care passed all the CQC checks with flying colours, and this on top of a huge surge in growth over the last eighteen months. 

"We have all worked hard to achieve an incredible 80% growth" explained our Care Manager, Heather, our coverage has grown significantly to encompass an area including Alston in the East across to Keswick in the west, and from Carlisle in the north down to Tebay in the south plus everything in between"

Training is key to delivering good home care services, staff must know how to take into account people's individual choices and preferences and enable them to feel respected and well cared for in the comfort of their own home.  Carers need to demonstrate great skill, kindness and patience towards people who have increasingly complex health and social care needs.
