“I can’t believe the difference in my health!

When Richard’s family contacted us in January 2018 Richard was quite unwell, he was in bed, permanently in his pyjamas, very incontinent and it was suggested that at 90 years old there would only be a short time left. He also had extremely poor sleep patterns often crying out during the night being extremely anxious and unsettled.

Richard was adamant he wanted a male carer, so after looking at a few carer profiles we matched Richard with Gerald, one of our male live-in carers who as very gregarious and had a wealth of care experience. Gerald has helped to make a massive difference to his life. His health has improved significantly – especially his strength. 12 months later, Richard is a different person – each morning he is up, dressed and comfortable in his armchair eating well, chatting, reading his newspaper and watching the television.

Would Richard recommend live-in care?

Richard can’t quite believe how having a live-in care has improved his life “I can’t believe the difference in my health – having a live-in carer has definitely helped my health improve “ And what would Richard say to other people considering live-in care? “Don’t hesitate…it is a very good idea“
