Often, someone who has been independent, strong and healthy discovers that their day-to-day activities become increasingly challenging, yet they wish to remain in the home they love, surrounded by the familiar things they hold dear. In these situations, it is not always possible for relatives to provide the full-time care and attention their mother, father or elderly relative needs, and what they seek is live-in home care where a trained carer will live with the client and provide the full-time care at home that is needed.
Familiar surroundings are particularly important when dementia is involved. Much research demonstrates that those with dementia cope better for longer if their home life is free of sudden changes in routine.
We provide live-in home 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.
