These are just some of the questions we know families in this situation are asking themselves as they attempt to make the right decision during this unprecedented time.
Unlike care being provided in a care or nursing home, live-in care provides a safe, secure and controlled way of an elderly loved one receiving the care and support they need during the Coronavirus pandemic. There continues to be more risk involved in the provision of care in a residential care or nursing home given the number of ‘contacts’ between staff and residents and ‘touchpoints’ within a care home environment, which increase chances for transmission and infection. Visiting or hourly home care provided by domiciliary care agencies also presents increased risks given the number of contacts one carer will have during the day with several clients they visit. These risks are significantly reduced with live-in care – and all without having to leave the comfort and reassuring surroundings of your own home.
Live-in care is focused on helping you maintain independence, choice, dignity and whilst continuing to live a purposeful and meaningful life. All of which are vital to health and happiness, and even more so now we face the impact of Coronavirus in terms of restrictions on our daily life and fewer interactions with our loved ones.
Our highly trained professional carers have received unrivalled support and guidance as to how to care for their clients during the Coronavirus pandemic to ensure the very highest standards of live-in care are provided to our clients, whilst risks are effectively monitored, managed and controlled.
