Live In Care For Couples

There are many reasons why couples choose live-in care, but perhaps the most important reason is because it enables you and your partner to stay together in the home that you love.

Live-In Care for Couples 

 Whether you’ve been in your home for six months or 50 years, it is still the place that makes you feel the most comfortable and safe. That’s why we provide personalised live in care to couples that need a little more support but don’t want to let go of the home they have built together.

It’s a sad fact that many residential/nursing homes cannot provide accommodation for couples: often leaving people who have lived together for many years to face life without their partner at just the time when they need them the most.

We strongly believe that older people should be assisted by whatever means possible to continue living together in familiar surroundings regardless of the conditions that affect them. That’s why we work hard with the couple and their family to put together a plan of care and support that takes into account all of their medical and social needs.


Caring for couples

Our friendly, professional homecare assistants can support couples in their own home with help around the home, personal care and medical assistance.  The assistant is also there to provide companionship, if needed – they’re very aware, however, that companionship for a couple should always be provided discreetly with respect for the special nature of the relationship between the people involved.

We believe that the bond between the assistant and the couple is very special too. It’s not just a question of the live-in care assistant helping around the house, with medication and with and personal care that is needed – the assistant also provides emotional support when required.  We see everyone that we deal with as real people with their own wants and needs – when you do this, it’s easy to get to know each other well and use this knowledge as a foundation for a healthy respectful relationship.

Benefits of Live in Care for couples

The benefits of live-in care are multiplied when the care is provided for a couple. These benefits are both emotional and financial.
In most cases, staying at home in well-loved surroundings, without the upheaval of a major move, provides a stress free, seamless move into assisted living.  When there is no need to adjust to new surroundings and familiar people, places and things are close at hand, all of your energies can be applied to enjoying your quality of life rather than worrying about new situations.

A cost-effective solution to care

Financially, it is generally less expensive to have a live-in assistant at home for two people than to be faced with two sets of fees for separate care of each partner.
Sometimes one partner in the relationship is more able than the other and so the care of the less able person falls to them.  We can offer support when the main carer needs a break or some extra support at home for a short time.

Our live-in care packages cover the full range of home care services available, so the cost of care is subject to your needs and requirements. Whether you’re both reaching your elderly years and you’re no longer able to support each other like you used to, or you or your partner are living with a condition that requires clinical support – we can provide the perfect care package that suits you both.

The first step is to contact our office and talk to one of our friendly team.  You can then arrange a visit in your own home which is an ideal opportunity to ask all your questions face-to-face.  When you're ready, contact us by phone on 01635 36953 or complete our online form and our team will be able to assist you.
