CARE FOR COUPLES
We provide care for couples, as we understand how important it is to stay together.
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.
We want you to continue to enjoy each other’s company without us getting in the way.
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.
Respecting your privacy and maintaining your independence
Our friendly carer or support staff 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.
With 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 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.
There are many benefits of care for couples
There are many advantages to care for couples, with the cost savings being a welcome bonus to an already favorable solution. Couples’ care in a residential home can cost up to twice as much as carer coming into your home or live-in care.
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.
“Our carer is so wonderful and we wouldn’t want to lose her – she has been excellent looking after my father, the dogs and the house while my mother has been in hospital.”
“Dad’s carer is superb and she is exactly what we wanted. She loves dogs and that is really important as we have two!”
