Live-in care for couples

Couples choose live-in care for a myriad of reasons, but the ultimate benefit is staying together in a cherished home.

It's a loving and respectful way of ensuring that the grace of your shared living space is matched by the care and attention you deserve.

Provided for by a high quality live-in care provider such as Bluebird Care Birmingham West, let 'live-in' be the key that unlocks life's greatest moments, in the home where your heart belongs, in line with your chosen lifestyle.

Home is where we feel most comfortable and safe, regardless of how long we've lived there.

That's why we offer customised live-in care for couples who require extra support but are keen to stay in their own homes rather than be placed into a care home or residential care.

We understand how important it is for them to maintain their independence and dignity while receiving the assistance they need, within the comfort of their familiar surroundings.

Unfortunately, it remains a cruel reality that certain residential or nursing homes lack the capacity to house couples, forcing many who have spent years together to confront life without their partners just as they need them most.

At the heart of our values is the belief that elderly citizens deserve every form of assistance necessary to uphold their cherished way of life, even in the face of serious conditions.

That's why we collaborate closely with the couple and their family, devising a comprehensive care and support blueprint tailored to both their medical and social requirements, to not only provide the highest quality of care but also the right emotional support.

Caring for couples

Our home care assistants can support couples in their own home with help around the home including: support with personal care; medical assistance and assisting with household chores.

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.

At Bluebird Care Birmingham West, we hold the belief that the connection between live in carers and a couple is precious. It extends beyond the mere care-taking duties and the administration of medication and personal hygiene.

Our assistants also offer emotional support to those in need, fostering a trusting bond that truly sets our services apart. 

We pride ourselves on providing high quality professional care with personalised support, and see everyone that we deal with as real people with their own wants and needs.

Are home care services support people with a wide variety of care needs including dementia care, nursing care, palliative care and respite care.

Benefits of live-in care for couples

Providing live-in care for a couple gives rise to an array of advantages, both emotional and financial, which are vastly multiplied when compared to just one individual receiving live in care.

In most cases, receiving round the clock care to allow you to live independently in the comfort of your own home , without the upheaval of a major move (to residential care), provides a stress free, seamless move into assisted living. 

A cost-effective solution to care

When it comes to long-term care, cost is a key factor. In fact, choosing to move to a care home can cost twice as much as opting for high-quality, live-in care at home.

With live-in care there is only one weekly fee for the care team providing the fully managed service, with a small supplement for couples care depending on needs.

Therefore, live-in care is a very cost-effective alternative to moving into a care home for couples.

It should be noted that the cost of live in care will vary depending on the care needs and complexities which will take into account the need for specialist care, for example in relation to specialist dementia care.

Local authority funding may also be available for couples who are eligible for financial support and assistance.
