Offering You the Best Alternative to Care Homes
As a provider of client-led and bespoke home care services for more than 58 years, we firmly believe that if you want to stay independent in your own home, you can.
The people you care about don’t have to move into a residential care home. There are many benefits to opting for a live-in care service over a care home. The main advantage is that the person receiving care can stay in an environment they’re most familiar with.
They can be around the people and things they know and love best. It can be stressful for vulnerable people getting used to a new and unfamiliar surroundings. Coupled with the disruption to routines and lifestyles, such a move can cause significant amounts of distress and not just to the individual – but to relatives as well. With our range of companion care services, we remove unwarranted stress and anxiety.
Rather than change what you or your loved one are used to, we tailor our care plans to fit around established routines. Our fully qualified carers provide the bespoke care and support residential care homes are unable to provide.
Live-In Care Is a One on One Alternative to Care Homes
In a nursing home there are many people receiving care whereas with live-in care you will experience the one-on-one care and support. This means that you or your loved one is at the centre of the carer’s attention. Even if you are an elderly couple looking for care we are certain that our private home care services will have a better carer to client ratio.
