Live-in Care & Pets
Blog Series – Exploring Live-in Care with Bluebird Care. In this blog article we look at how live-in care can help someone to stay in the home they love, with their beloved pets.
Live-in care is a type of home care service. A home care service simply means that you are supported by a care worker in your own home. The difference with live-in care is that your care assistant will live in your home with you rather than only visiting at times when specific care or support is needed. This can be a great option for people who want to remain independent and in familiar surroundings, but who need help with day-to-day activities, including looking after beloved pets.
Live-in care has a number of benefits which we will be exploring through our latest blog series – Exploring Live-in Care with Bluebird Care. In this blog article we look at how live-in care can help someone to stay in the home they love, with their beloved pets.
One of the benefits of live-in care is that it allows older people and people with disabilities to keep their pets. Many residential and nursing care homes do not allow pets, so this can be a major factor in deciding whether to choose live-in care.
A live-in care assistant can help with all aspects of pet care, including:
- Feeding and watering
- Walking and exercising
- Grooming and bathing
- Taking to the vet
- Cleaning up accidents
- Providing companionship
The live-in care assistant can also help to ensure that the pet is safe and well-behaved, and that they are not a nuisance to others.
Here are some of the benefits of live-in care with pets:
- Older people and people with disabilities can stay in their own homes, which can be more comforting and familiar than a residential or nursing care home.
- Pets can provide companionship and emotional support, which can help to improve mental and physical health.
- Live-in care assistants can help with all aspects of pet care, so older people and people with disabilities do not have to worry about it.
- Pets can help to reduce stress and anxiety, which can be beneficial for people with health conditions.
There are many benefits to live-in care with pets, and it can be a great way to stay independent and in familiar surroundings while receiving the care you need.
