Choosing the type of care best suited to your loved one can be tough and you may have already read a lot on the internet. Whatever the health condition and support needs, we have the specialist staff to help. The first question to answer is whether your loved one requires live-in care, visiting care, or specialist care.

Live in care

Live in care is the preferred option for those who would like continuous companionship and a little support, those who need more support and safety than a visiting service can offer, or those whose needs are more complex support around the clock. It can also be used as a temporary respite solution instead of residential care.

Visiting care

A flexible visiting care service means a MyLife Living Assistant can visit for as little as an hour a week, or several times a day. This might be to help with personal care, meal preparation, going out to social events or for respite for the main carer. It’s flexible and is a good way to introduce the service to someone who may be a bit resistant or nervous to receiving help.

Specialist care

When there is a more complex support need, specialist care that is nurse led ensures that your loved one is still in the comfort of home, yet still receiving the level of care one would expect in a hospital. This can be combined with live-in care for more intense care needs.

Respite care

Caring for a partner or parent can be a challenging and tiring time but it also has huge benefits. MyLife offers respite care to allow you time to rest and more importantly to continue to be yourself and live your life. This may be to meet with friends, go to the gym or simply to take a relaxing break away knowing that your loved one is in trusted and safe hands.

Home from hospital

Offering a holistic approach to the whole hospital journey, from packing a bag and getting there, to coming home and recovering. Our home from hospital service enables your loved one to recover and regain confidence in their independence and ability to do things for themselves again. We can also stay and support if the post-hospital needs are greater.


Companionship is often something that is at the forefront of your mind, especially if you live far away from and older parent or relative, and they are living alone. Companionship can significantly increase someones sense of well being and therefore improve overall health.

End of life care

Most people wish to end their days in the comfortable and familiar surroundings of their own home, however many don’t achieve that. With MyLife offering care and support to suit your needs, from a visiting service to live in and nurse led specialist care, we are able to keep your loved one in their home until the end.
