The Good Care Group’s 24-hour live-in care services enable people with care, support, nursing and companionship needs to stay living safely and happily in their own home as a real alternative to the need to move into a residential care or nursing home.
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. The support we provide can be on an ongoing basis, or as respite care which enables a family carer to take a break whilst their loved one is cared for at home.
Our high quality services are rated Outstanding by the CQC (Care Quality Commission) and we specialise in providing live-in care to older clients with Dementia, Parkinson’s disease and a range of other age-related conditions. If you want to find out more about how live-in care works, you can find all the information you need here.
Our services are available across the whole of England, Scotland and the Isle of Man and we are providing support to a large number of clients in the counties of Surrey and West Sussex. People considering their own future care options are realising that remaining in their own home, with all the support they want and need is now a lifestyle choice they can attain.
Families considering 24-hour support and care for their older relatives living in Surrey and West Sussex 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.
