Types of Care

Country Cousins provide many types of live-in care services including short term and long term home care for the elderly, respite care, and care for dementia.

We’re constantly evolving to better meet the needs of our clients and their families. A Country Cousin, as our live-in carers are known, can accompany your loved ones to family weddings, or take them away for a weekend break. 

They can be a friend and companion to the able bodied, or provide quality home care for those with Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s disease.

No matter your requirements, you can rest assured that each and every live-in carer is appropriately skilled and experienced and will fit in effortlessly with your home life and situation.

Country Cousins carers can provide timely and appropriate support in a range of home care services.

Short Term Care

Short-term home care for the elderly is available whether it’s for a few days or a few weeks. This may be necessary to provide 24-hour live-in care for a loved one who needs more support, or if you are planning a holiday and require care cover while you are away.

Convalescence Care

Convalescence care, or family carer replacement is sometimes necessary following surgery, or for older adults with an illness that requires more time to recover before returning to independence. We take great care in providing home care assistance that is tailored to individual needs and adapted as your loved one returns to health. 

Respite Care

Respite care is usually short term, and provides a much-needed break for many family carers. We understand how important it is that your loved one receives the best possible in-home care while you are away. We take the time to tailor a personalised care plan for each of our clients, taking into account specific needs, daily routines, and preferences.

Long Term Care

Home care for the elderly in their own home is a popular long-term alternative to residential care homes. The cost of care at home may also be less than you think, comparing favourably with care home fees.

Our Live-In Care Services Include

  • Companionship and escorting to social activities/trips to friends.
  • Freshly cooked meals – Cousins pride themselves on their cooking skills.
  • Providing prompts and reminders around medication and appointments.
  • In home care and assistance.
  • Laundry, shopping and light housework.
  • Support with hobbies.
  • Social care support and encouragement.
  • Making appointments, maintaining records, keeping diaries.
  • Driving – Cousins who hold driving licences can drive with suitable insurance (insurance can be arranged by the client).
  • Doing what we can to ensure clients maintain a healthy, happy life with choice and independence.

Care For Elderly Couples

Live-in care for elderly couples is necessary to enable couples to stay together in the comfort of their own homes. It is often a less costly option than joint residential care, and is a popular service for clients who do not wish to be separated when further support is needed.

Care For Disabled Adults

Live-in care for disabled adults enables them to focus on their abilities and on living a full and independent life. We pride ourselves on being able to offer private home care for a range of illnesses and disabilities, investing significant time into developing a personalised care plan on a case-by-case basis.

  • Same carers for a long time...

    We've been fortunate in having the same carers for a long time which aids the quality of care considerably as they are familiar with our mothers needs. This is especially important for dementia care.

  • The food is always good...

    The various careers prepare different meals but always in accordance with my fathers wishes but respecting his diabetic condition. The food is always good.

  • Our current carers are great...

    Our current carers (Terri and Alison) are great - providing companionship as well as keeping my mother safe.

  • A great blessing to us

    On behalf of my brother and myself, and indeed all our family, I should like to record the debt we owe the Country Cousins who came to care for both our parents over the past 2 years. Without the help of Country Cousins, Mum and Dad could not have stayed in their own home and this they so dearly wished to do, it was a great blessing to us all that this became a reality.

  • Very professional and extremely caring

    I would like to say that the Country Cousins, who cared for my wife until she died, were very professional and extremely caring and kind during the time they were here. I would like to say thank you, at Country Cousins, for sending them in our time of need.

  • Very pleased and happy in her care

    Can you kindly note that I was very happy with the Country Cousin who came to look after my mother and she was very happy in her care too. Very reassuring to know that she was in the capable hands of someone you could trust.

  • Enjoyed Country Cousins support

    I have now enjoyed the support of your Country Cousins and I would like you to know that of 6 1/2 years of having to need care, these two ladies, though very different in character, they are both splendid carers in their own way.

  • You never let us down

    Thank you to you all at Country Cousins for the support you have given us over the last four years. You have never let us down over the years, we have met some interesting and caring people. We have no hesitation in recommending you to other people.
