As we get older, daily routines that many of us take for granted can become difficult or restrictive. There comes a point when we feel that we can no longer manage on our own, and need to move into a Care Home or other institution.
It can also be difficult for family members to see a loved one struggling and even more difficult if they have the burden of having to make this decision for them.
The thought of leaving the comfort and safety of your own home can be daunting, not to mention the stress that a person feels, at any age, when they have to move to a new house. It can also be a heart-breaking experience if you are moving to smaller accommodation, when you realise you may have to sell some of your furniture, and may not be able to take all of your possessions with you.
However, many people are not aware that there is another option: Live-in Care.
Live-in Care is a service which enables anyone with care needs to remain in the comfort of their own home, with familiar surroundings. You will have the benefit of 24-hour, one-to-one support from your own personal carer, who is there to enable you to live your life to the fullest.
Live-in Care offers a great, cost-effective alternative to a care or nursing home, with many extra benefits. You will have your own personal carer living with you, giving one-on-one support 24/7, which does not happen in a Care Home.
The biggest benefit of Live-in Care is that there isn’t the huge emotional strain of having to leave the comfort and safety of your own home to move to new, unfamiliar surroundings.
