Live in care for couples
Are you and your partner interested in live in care in Christchurch or the surrounding area? For many couples, live-in care is the perfect choice as it allows you both to receive the extra support you need while remaining in the place you feel most comfortable – your home.
We understand that a significant concern for many couples is separation from each other if they move into a residential care home. For this reason, live-in care is often the preferred alternative as it ensures personalised support is available without the upheaval of moving out of the place you love best and the distress of separating from your partner. Let’s take a closer look at the benefits of live in care for couples.
Why choose live-in care?
Live in care is personalised support provided in your existing home. It provides round-the-clock care and companionship to those dealing with injuries, mobility issues or chronic illnesses. If either or both of you are recovering from an injury or living with a chronic illness, you may experience difficulty moving around your home or coping with daily tasks. The help of a live-in carer provides the necessary support to continue living safely and comfortably at home, as you or your partner’s needs change. For example, your carer can help prepare meals, clean, cook, pick up prescriptions, administer basic clinical services and provide personal care.
Our live-in care services take into account the needs of both individuals so that you receive the personalised care you both deserve.
Live-in care vs care home
You and your partner likely have different care needs. As a result, moving into residential care may mean that you’ll be separated from each other, perhaps living on different floors or in different units. It is very uncommon for care homes to provide double bedroom accommodation for couples. Understandably, this is a big concern for couples who have lived a significant portion of their lives together. Live-in care enables you and your partner to continue living together while receiving the support you both need. It is also a more cost-effective solution compared with a care home which is typically double the price of receiving live-in care at home.
The benefits of live in care for couples
Perhaps the main benefit of live in care for couples is that you both get to stay together in the comfort of your home. Thanks to live-in care, you can avoid the physical and emotional disruption that often accompanies moving homes, plus the stress of potentially separating from your life partner.
With live in care, you can continue enjoying quality time together and appreciate each other’s company. In addition, live in care ensures you and your partner get the bespoke support and reassurance you require to live well.
