care for myself

For many, residental care homes appear as the only option for 24-hour care and support in old age or illness. What if we told you this was a myth? Live-in home care is becoming increasingly popular and many people who require all levels of support and medical care are revelling in the fact they get to remain in the comfort of their own home. Live-in care will enable you to keep your independence and continue living your life the way you choose, surrounded by the people, pets and things you love.

The Benefits of Senior Homecare

Many do not consider enlisting the help of a 24-hour live-in carer as a viable option for a multitude of reasons, one being cost. However, fees for live-in carers are comparable to those of residential homes and cheaper for couples.

Some of the many advantages of live-in care are as follows:

  • You can remain in the comfort of your own home with complete peace of mind that you are looked after
  • Your family and friends can visit at any time, for as long as you wish
  • Your family pet can remain in the home and your carer will look after them too on your behalf
  • Your carer will care for you, cooking your favourite meals and looking after your food, shopping and housekeeping
  • Your carer will actively support you to increase your independence and encourage you to remain part of the local community, should you so wish
  • Your carer will take you out and about as much as you’d like and to wherever you wish to go
  • You will not need to sell your home or get rid of any possessions
