What is live-in care?

Live-in care gives elderly people and elderly couples the ability to continue to live independently at home, safe in the knowledge that 24-hour care is on hand from a trained carer to help with anything from companionship, cooking, cleaning through to personal care, medication management or more complex support for special conditions such as dementia care, Parkinson’s care or post-stroke care.

The service also offers genuine continuity of care given that the carer resides in the client’s home on a weekly basis, ensuring that companionship and friendship are a key part of the service.

Our live-in care service offers older people highly personalised care and support at home enabling them to live life how they wish.
