What is Live-In Care for Couples?
Live-in care for elderly couples allows couples to stay living together in their own property when they might need additional help to look after themselves and their home. This support can provide a much-needed lifeline for them and help them acclimatise to assisted living and outside help.
A live-in carer will live with them in their home and be available to help them with tasks such as cleaning, cooking, running errands and maintaining good personal care. The level of help can be agreed at the from the start and a care plan can be drawn up that meets their needs.
A live-in carer will require their own room and working hours can be agreed, but this type of care is well worth considering if you or your loved ones require additional care and want to stay together in the comfort of your home.
Who Could Benefit From Live-In Care For Couples?
Live-in care for couples is ideal for households where one or both of the individuals require extra support. This could be for either physical or mental health reasons such as recovering from a stroke or conditions such as Parkinson’s, MS, dementia or a spinal injury.
Care for elderly couples can be especially beneficial, as it can become more difficult to care for ourselves and others as we get older. A live-in carer can help with a multitude of tasks and chores around the home and be a much needed extra helping hand. It can be especially helpful if either of you need assistance getting up from a bed or chair, or in or out of a bath or with any other heavy lifting.
But as well as the additional help in the home, a live-in carer provides excellent companionship.
Respite Care For Couples
We can also provide respite live-in care for couples when you need a carer for a shorter period, perhaps on return from hospital or if one of the couple is taken ill and cannot care for the other. This solution allows couples to stay together and takes the pressure off the added burden of looking after each other so they can focus on their recovery.
