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.
Types of 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.
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.
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.
