We love providing live-in care for couples, as we understand how important it is to stay together.
Live-in care for couples allows you and your partner to stay in the comfort of your own home whilst receiving assistance from a professional carer with daily tasks.
If one of you has a progressive condition such as dementia, you may have a concern that the day will come when you will have to be separated after so many years. Live-in care makes it possible for you to stay living together and enjoy each other’s company and independence.
You may be struggling to support and care for each other, and to maintain your independence. Just a little support from us can be all you need to keep enjoying each other’s company.
Our friendly live-in carers are respectful of your home and your privacy. Although we’re here to help with the cooking, cleaning, and general household duties, we encourage you to continue doing what you are able to for as long as possible.
Having been rated as Outstanding in Caring by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), it’s clear that we take great pride in providing flexibility and freedom to older couples. All of our carers are trained in-house, so you can expect consistent care catered to your individual needs. Don’t just take our word for it though! Have a browse through our countless reviews of happy couples that have been able to enjoy each other’s company in comfort.
Every couple is different and requires unique levels of care to work around their life. We can be as hands-on or hands-off as you like, allowing you both to enjoy each other’s company uninterrupted, we work around you!
Our live-in care service includes everything that needs to be done around the home from cooking to cleaning and shopping to household chores. Our professional carers can also respectfully take care of any personal care requirements or administer medication.
If you both need assistance attending appointments or taking part in hobbies, our carers are more than happy to help. The aim of live-in care for couples is to enable you both to enjoy your home and independence whilst having everything else taken care of.
There are many advantages to live-in care for couples, with the cost savings being a welcome bonus to an already favourable solution. Couples’ care in a residential home can cost up to twice as much as live-in care.
As in a residential home, couples often require separate beds or rooms, costing considerably more. Having a carer live-in and care for you both is therefore much cheaper. Usually, the basic tasks are the same for a couple as if there were just one person, meaning you’ll save money arranging live-in care for you both.
Cost isn’t the only consideration of course; having a live-in carer allows you to stay in your familiar surroundings and continue to support each other as you grow old together.
With live-in care for couples, there can be days when one feels the strain of supporting the other, and you just need a bit of respite care before you return to the role of the main carer. That’s what we’re here for – we can sensitively take over your role for as long as you need, and then take a back seat once you’ve recharged your batteries.
Peace of mind is also a significant benefit as you can rest assured that you are both looked after and won’t have to be separated from your partner further down the line. The quality of your care is also unmatched due to a dedicated carer being there for you who understands both of your needs. Staying with your partner in familiar surroundings and receiving top-quality care ensures that you can both stay happy, healthy and independent for as long as possible.
“I love that Anca is now Mum’s official make-up artist and hair stylist! Mum is looking so well and gets many compliments when they bump into acquaintances at the village shop; this is giving her a well needed boost at this time. And they are both enjoying art sessions, with Mum ‘helping’ Anca produce some amazing pictures.”
“We’re delighted with Lucy!! She is brilliant and lovely with my dad and they’ve bonded really well. It’s obviously a huge relief and thanks to you, Sarah and the team for finding ANOTHER great carer so well suited for my dad.” Mr C, Cambridgeshire, March 2020
