Why live in care at home?
Live-in care helps people live well at home for longer by providing specialist care in the comfort of the home. Our fully managed service provides you with the assistance you require to safely maintain your independence, avoiding the trauma of upheaval for those in need of full time support.
Independence, dignity and choice
For many, moving in the later years of life to unfamiliar surroundings can cause significant trauma. However good residential or nursing care is, the institutional nature of it means losing one's independence is almost always inevitable, this can have grave effects on your mental and physical health.
Choosing 24 hour care at home provides a number of key benefits
Stay in control over life for longer
Benefit from having your routines, privacy and preferences respected and listened to
Keep up with hobbies, interests and clubs in your local community
Maintain relationships and family life - seeing friends and family in a relaxed and familiar environment for everyone
Use home surroundings to stimulate care - such as the ground-breaking SPECAL method for dementia
Familiar and safe surroundings
We passionately believe that most people want to stay in their homes for as long as possible. Home is where your belongings, treasures, pets and memories are. Where the family is used to coming to visit and where your community can support you. This is especially important for people living with dementia, as familiarity is hugely important to overall health and well-being.
Live in care makes it possible to continue enjoying these comforts, whilst receiving the support you require.
By choosing live-in care with The Good Care Group, you are choosing to continue living with choice and control, surrounded by your families and communities.
Live in care is a very economical option for individuals with long term care requirements. For the similar price as a one bed within a care home you can receive a bespoke service, which not only caters to your healthcare needs but also your mental, social and emotional needs.
For couples seeking care, live in care is significantly cheaper than two rooms in a care home. With the assistance of The Good Care Group couples can continue living as partners, without disrupting their usual routines. Giving you the opportunity to freely enjoy meals, outings and social activities together, whilst receiving care tailored to each individuals unique needs.
