By working together with our client and their family and or friends we can develop an individually customized home care plan with routines and preferences for meals, eating times, hobbies, rest time and established medication. Helping our clients to maintain community engagement and social activities is important therefore taking special care and time to prioritize what is important to you while designing the home care plan is primary.

Live-in Support; an Alternative to Care Homes
Live-in support offers many advantages over residential care homes. Most obviously the fact that you are able to stay at home in your familiar environment, rather than the physical and emotional upheaval of moving and adapting to a new and unfamiliar surrounding of a residential care home.
Our Live-In Support ensures that you are given specialized one-to-one attention throughout the entire day and night, if necessary. Your well-being is the focus for your live-in support activity and health plan. Contrast this with the staffing ratios found in residential care.
