Live-in care is the safest type of care

 

As we adapt to living with Coronavirus, families are now becoming extremely anxious about where is the safest place for their loved one to receive care as evidence has shown that the elderly and those with underlying medical conditions are still at risk of experiencing severe symptoms of the disease.The current wave of Covid is expected to peak in the coming weeks, but another wave is anticipated in the autumn as people move inside with the colder weather.

Caring for the elderly at home is still the safest way to help the elderly live comfortably and safely in the comfort of their own home. Our live-in elderly care service enables older people to remain at home, with tailored care for the elderly that allows them to continue making choices on their own terms. Our live-in carers for the elderly, means your loved one can live safely at home as we can ensure dedicated one-to-one care. Having just one live-in carer will reduce the amount of external contact therefore reducing the risk of infection compared to residential care homes where you share a carer with multiple people.

It is important to remember that if a care home goes into outbreak or there is a suspected case of Covid, care homes will have to reinstate strict infection control measures which is why so many families are now choosing to care for the elderly at home by hiring a professional live-in carer.
