At an age and a stage in life when familiarity and routine are whole heartedly embraced, home is where we want to be, whatever it takes to maintain our precious independence. That is why 24 hour live-in care is becoming an increasingly popular and affordable choice for those elderly or disabled people, who can no longer cope with living at home; often alone. A live in carer will provide reassuring continuity and companionship with all the comforts of home and life can go on with a reliable normality. So often when we think care at home, we rarely think past the basic needs of day to day living; a wash, clean clothes and a microwave meal, that might be achieved with a carer popping in for two or three visits a day. However, with a live-in carer companion the focus of the day can move on to more life enhancing and fulfilling activities, like planning a meal and enjoying it together, with plenty of time for genuine conversation.
The smallest of pleasures can be enjoyed, like opening a window for a few minutes when the sun comes out and knowing it can be closed again, or knowing you don’t have to ask your daughter to buy her own birthday present and then pretend it is a surprise!
When considering all the care options available, live in care with companionship can easily provide the best value for money and …it will include all the little things that improves the lives of the whole family and bring with it the warmth of a smile.
