When frailty, advancing age and vulnerability start to become a part of everyday life, it can be a difficult time for families.
Often, someone who has been independent, strong and healthy discovers that living alone is increasingly challenging.
They nevertheless wish to remain in the home they love, surrounded by the things they hold dear, like a favourite chair, family photographs, and often a much-loved pet.
Familiar surroundings are particularly important when dementia is involved. Much research has been produced which proves that those with dementia cope better for longer if their home life is free of sudden changes in routine.
In such situations, it is not always possible for relatives to provide loved ones with the care and attention they need, and what they seek is a carer who will live-in with their mother, father or elderly relative.
We provide care for clients with varying degrees of dementia, from short-term memory loss to advanced Alzheimer’s. Some may have Parkinson’s Disease or Multiple Sclerosis. Others are recovering from a stroke. Some need respite care. Many need palliative care.
For all our clients, choosing live-in care is all about providing the peace of mind which comes from one-to-one support, preserving a greater degree of independence, and enabling our clients to remain in their own home for as long as they wish.
