A live-in carer is someone who comes to live in your own home to care for an elderly, sick or disabled person. They are fully trained with the relevant qualifications to enable them to carry out their duties and provide quality live-in or respite care to the highest standards.
Live-in & respite covers:
"Long-term" when permanent help is needed if the client is too infirm, sick, mentally unstable or disabled to look after themselves or be cared for by a loved one.

Our care services provide:
"Companionship" the reassurance that someone is always there

"Domestic help" someone to do the shopping, cooking, laundry, ironing, cleaning and odd jobs
