What is live in care?
Live in care is a popular alternative to care homes for individuals with long term health needs.
Given the choice, many of us would choose to remain within our homes whilst receiving support. However when faced with the responsibility of choosing the type of care we would like our loved ones to receive, we tend to automatically assume care homes are the best or only option.
However this is not always the case. With live-in care it is possible to receive the professional support you require without leaving the comfort of your home. You'll be provided with round the clock support and companionship, assistance to carry out your daily activities and specialist care for complex conditions.
We know that independence, choice and dignity are important for both happiness and health. Our care services enable you to continue to live your life the way you wish to in the comfort of your own home and familiar surroundings. Our team of professional live in carers are trained to provide you with the highest quality of compassionate care.
How does live in care differ from other types of care?
Unlike other care provisions such as care homes and hourly care, The Good Care Group provides a more holistic service.
This is because :
- Your plan of care is uniquely developed to suit your needs without any rigid timetables or set routines
- Specialist care will be provided to you within the comfort of your home from carers who have a true understanding of the needs you may have
- You will avoid the disruption and upheaval of moving out of your home to receive 24 hour care
- It is proven to improve both health and well-being
- A more economical option compared to care homes - especially for couples who are able to stay together
- You can continue living life surrounded by your communities and home comforts - including pets
