Live-in care for couples
When one partner in a couple needs greater long-term care and assistance than the other is able to provide, perhaps due to the onset of a debilitating illness, deciding on the best way forward can be difficult. For couples of any age, the possibility that they might be separated in order for one partner to enter residential care may cause anxiety for both.
Remain together whilst receiving quality care
Live in care for couples removes the need for partners to be separated, enabling them to remain together in their home and to continue to enjoy their daily lives whilst receiving the level of care they need.
Although resident in the couple’s home, live in carers are discreet and unobtrusive but always on hand when needed whether to take care of domestic chores or to provide personal or specialist care.
Peace of mind
Offering freedom from the burden of everyday tasks and peace of mind both for the couple and their family that they are in the safe and compassionate hands of a fully-trained and professional carer, live in care for couples enables loving partners to maintain their independence and share a better quality of life together.
Whether just one or both partners require assistance, live in care for couples provides a practical and cost-effective alternative to seeking residential care in a nursing home.
Secure and invaluable
Not only can a live in carer make life easier, more secure and more enjoyable for couples, they can also provide invaluable companionship. Each couple is fully involved in the selection of their carer to ensure mutual compatibility.
Removing the stress of separation and the challenge of providing care and support to a loved one, live in care for couples enables you and your loved one to maintain control of your life together in the comfortable and secure surroundings of your own home.
