Live-in care

When the time comes and professional care or respite care is needed, an increasing number of people are opting for live-in care arrangements as an alternative to residential care or nursing homes.  Live-in care comprises a professional carer living in your home, providing care to the person living with dementia as well as housekeeping and companionship.  

Live-in care avoids the upset and disorientation caused by moving somewhere unfamiliar and being separated from family and friends.  It also brings greater flexibility and can enable a person to have a greater level of independence and choice than a care home can provide.  Compared to residential homes, live-in care may also be more affordable.
