At Ivy Palmer live in care, we offer a live in care Kent for anyone needing extra care and support at home. Our live in home care service is a bespoke care solution and can be tailored to meet the care needs of the elderly and anyone over the age of 18 living with a variety of care conditions including complex care.  One of the most unique aspects of our live in care agency is our dedication to helping you ensure the wellbeing of your loved one through sustained emotional support all in the comfort of their own home.

Live-in home care enables people to remain living independently in their own homes, in a familiar environment and surrounded by their own belongings. Our Kent home care service offers the best quality of life for those wishing to stay in a familiar area, while also feeling secure in an environment that isn’t a residential care home.
