Why Choose Live-in Care
For many people, the option to stay in the comfort and familiarity of the home they love is highly preferable and often also better for both their physical and emotional health. People considering their own future care options are realising that remaining in their home, with all the support they want and need is now a lifestyle choice they can attain.
Live in care is a popular and real alternative to residential care or nursing homes. Families considering 24-hour support and care for their older relatives are also enjoying the peace of mind which live-in care provides, as well as the opportunity to continue to have a role in the care of their loved ones where they wish to do so. With The Good Care Group, you will experience the support, expertise and quality of the national organisation combined with the local knowledge, area partnerships and personal attention of the regional team members.

Live In Care For Couples
For couples living in London, Live in care is especially advantageous. In many circumstances, couples may have to be separated to receive the appropriate care they require. Not only is this costly for couples, but it is also incredibly disheartening.
Moving to a care home is often a disruptive process, through which familiarity, prize positions and pets are given up. Live in care gives couples the opportunity to continue living at home together, as loving partners, whilst receiving care which has been designed to improve both health and wellbeing. Each individual receives their own dedicated care plan to ensure their needs are met without having to be separated from a partner, family members and friends. Our live-in carers will support you in accessing activities and events within your communities in London, helping you maintain your routines and daily life. Unlike hourly/domiciliary care providers, there is no additional charge for trips and days out, you can rest assured that your care will be provided with no extra fees unless your needs change materially.
Live in care is also significantly cheaper than two beds in a care home. Live in care by The Good Care Group is only £100 extra for couples, making it the economical choice for elderly couples who require full-time care in London.
Long Term, Short Term or Respite
The Good Care Group provide live in care services in London on either an ongoing, or respite basis. We understand that for some, long-term care is not necessary, this could be due to changing symptoms of a condition or if a primary carer is away. We will provide support as and when you need it, enabling family carers to take a break whilst their loved one is cared for at home. The Good Care Group carers also specialise in offering practical and emotional support for the person receiving care and the relatives of the individual.
For many of our elderly clients, it is the companionship that greatly improves quality of life, our live in carers provide them with the reassurance, encouragement and support to continue living life independently within their homes and communities.

ELAINE THOMPSON - CARE MANAGER
Elaine has worked in care for ten years, in a variety of settings and roles. She began her career by supporting people with learning difficulties, which she found very rewarding. Elaine then moved to a domiciliary care role, wanting something more challenging and within a personal setting. The domiciliary care role was not as fulfilling and she had hoped – she found it very frustrating to only be able to spend half an hour visiting each client. This led her to move into a live-in care role, where she could provide more person-centred support to clients, giving them more time and attention. Elaine joined The Good Care Group as a professional carer in 2012, and worked with stroke victims and clients with dementia. She went from strength to strength in this role, gaining extensive knowledge and experience, before progressing to Care Manager in 2013.
