There are common situations, conditions and events where live-in care offers the solution to challenges you might face moving forward:
Long-term conditions: Diseases like Parkinson’s require close and careful monitoring. Our Care Professionals are trained to observe any changes to a client’s health, wellbeing and behaviour, ready to take action if there is ever a cause for concern.
Dementia care: Living at home means staying in familiar surroundings and maintaining those daily routines that might not be possible in residential care. Home care suits somebody living with dementia, where continuity of life in the home they have grown to love is proven to be beneficial.
Losing a spouse: When a spouse dies, it takes some time to adjust, not just emotionally but practically too. A Care Professional can be a much-needed companion and fulfil the support role that was recently lost.
Frailty: Getting older for many means not being able to do the simplest of things, even lifting the kettle to make a cup of tea. Live-in care can support someone who is becoming frail to maintain their independence and quality of life.
Unexpected illness and events: Whether it’s a fall or a sudden illness, your loved one could be susceptible to events that may quickly have a need for care. Professional help will relieve the pressure from you and your family.
