Supporting Couples with a Live in Carer

We understand that your loved ones have grown to become two peas in a pod over the years – and they’d like nothing more than to continue spending their lives together, whatever they might face from one day to the next. Which is why Independent People Homecare offers live in care services for elderly couples too.

As we age, managing a household and completing everyday tasks can become challenging, even if we are lucky enough to have support from a partner. And if one or both parties are experiencing physical or mental health issues, coping can become extremely difficult indeed. Our home carers for couples are highly experienced in looking after those who wish to continue living together whilst receiving specialist support.

Home Care for Couples

There are plenty of reasons why couples choose to receive live in care. One of the biggest benefits of our service is it enables couples to stay in their own, familiar environment – they don’t need to move to a new place, and they’re not alienated from their family, or more importantly each other.

Our live in care services can be tailored to meet the needs of those living with Dementia, Parkinson’s, MS, the aftermath of a Stroke , a Spinal Injury or heart attack, and many other conditions that can have a profound effect on an individual’s ability to care for themselves.

We offer short or long-term care solutions that are designed to acclimatise both individuals to the concept of assisted living. The level of care received can be decided once we carry out a full assessment of the couples’ living arrangements and put together a care plan based on their unique requirements. Couples can expect to receive help with everything from washing, cleaning and cooking to running errands and personal care.

Above all, though, our customers will receive unrivalled companionship from a highly trained Live in carer who is patient, helpful, friendly and inherently professional.

We can also step in to provide respite live in care for couples when one or both of the individuals is returning from hospital after an operation.

Money is not always the deciding factor when it comes to choosing the most suitable option for your loved ones, but the cost of care certainly needs to be considered carefully. Supporting couples with live in care instead of arranging a stay in a residential care home can be a much more affordable option, too.
