What is live in Care for Couples

What is live-in care for couples?

When you find yourself in a situation where one or both of you requires additional support, it can be a worrisome time for both you and your family. Whether it’s due to frailty, conditions like dementia or Parkinson’s, or the need for care after a stroke or cancer, the fear of being separated in a residential care home is a common concern.

However, live-in care offers a preferred alternative for those who require care and support but wish to remain in the comfort and familiarity of their own home. Burleys Home Care has provided live-in care for couples for over 15 years.
