Live in Care can Support Older Adults and Their Beloved Pets

What to do with pets when elderly relatives go to a care home.

IP Live in Care offers a heartwarming solution that enables elderly couples to remain in the familiarity of their own home, accompanied by their cherished pets. With our compassionate live-in carers, families can ensure their loved ones receive the necessary support while preserving the unity of their family unit.

Pets hold a special place within the lives of elderly couples, providing companionship, unconditional love, and a sense of purpose. Separating them can lead to significant emotional distress and a profound sense of loss. Recognizing the significance of this bond, IP Live in Care understands the importance of preserving the companionship and well-being of both the elderly couple and their pets.

Live-in care for elderly couples offers benefits over care homes.

Here are some compelling reasons why IP Live in Care is an exceptional choice:

  1. Companionship and Emotional Support: Our live-in carers provide not only essential assistance but also invaluable companionship and emotional support. They cultivate meaningful relationships with the elderly couple, fostering trust and understanding. With their compassionate presence, carers become trusted friends, offering comfort and reducing feelings of loneliness and isolation.
  2. Personalised Care: At IP Live in Care, we acknowledge the unique needs and preferences of everyone. Our live-in carers develop personalised care plans tailored to the specific requirements of each elderly couple. From assistance with daily activities to medication management and specialised care, our carers ensure that every aspect of their clients’ well-being is addressed.
  3. Continuity and Familiarity: Remaining in the comfort of their own home allows elderly couples to maintain a sense of familiarity and continuity. They can continue to enjoy their cherished belongings, sleep in their own bed, and follow established routines. This stability contributes to their overall well-being and mental health.
  4. Promoting Independence: Live-in carers empower elderly couples to maintain their independence to the best of their abilities. They offer support while encouraging autonomy, enabling couples to make decisions about their own lives and engage in activities they enjoy. This sense of control fosters a positive outlook and enhances their overall quality of life.
  5. Pet-Friendly Care: At IP Live in Care, we understand the profound bond between elderly couples and their pets. Our live-in carers are not only skilled in providing care for the couple but also in attending to the needs of their beloved pets. From feeding and exercise to grooming and companionship, our carers ensure that the pets receive the attention and care they deserve.
