Live in care takes centre stage in providing safe coronavirus care alternative.

In an exclusive video interview, Home Care Insight editor Sarah Clarke spoke to Dominique Kent, co-founder of the Live-in Care Hub and chair of the United Kingdom Home Care Association.

She discusses a campaign to recruit 21,000 more care workers to the sector amid the coronavirus crisis and says the Hub, and the 21 live-in care providers within it, are ready to “step up” and create capacity planning for NHS discharge teams in order to get people home from hospital safely.

Kent and her peers are working hard to convince NHS trusts that live-in care is a safer alternative to discharging people into a care homes and mitigates the risk of COVID-19 cross-transmission between residents.
