Why do people need live-in care?Change can be upsetting for anyone, but especially for those in later life. The challenges of reduced mobility, long-term illness or living with dementia can make moving out of your own home very distressing. Faced with the problem of needing long-term, round-the-clock care, a care or nursing home often seems like the only solution. However, more and more of those searching for care are finding out that arranging good quality, live-in care at home with Four Oaks Healthcare can turn out to be the perfect care solution.Why is live-in care in Bexley better than a care home?If your elderly relative or spouse is comfortable living at home, but only needs support with their day-to-day living, they should be able to stay where their heart is. Recent studies indicate that care recipients who remain in their own home are more likely to stay healthier, happier and more socially active than those who move into residential care.This is because living at home is familiar. When something is needed, a cup of tea, a snack or help to move to the bathroom, a personal carer is there to respond. This is why care recipients living at home have an increased sense of independence and autonomy, which supports a better standard of life.
Home care also reduces the stress on you and your family. Using Four Oaks Healthcare’s live-in care service allows you to live your own life, while remaining safe in the knowledge that your loved one is in a familiar surrounding and being well taken care of at home.
