Live-in Care For People Living With
Any Condition

What support can a Live-in Carer provide?


Most people requiring care would prefer to stay in the comfort of their own home.  Familiar surroundings are comforting and there is often a support network of friends and family locally. With full-time Live-in care support, you are provided with 24-hour care focused on your individual needs. You can tailor the Live-in service to ensure you are able to enjoy a high quality of life. Also tailor the service to maintain control and choice to live as independently as possible.


We are happy to provide experienced, skilled, and professional Live-in Carers for people with all types of condition. This includes younger adults with congenital disabilities, such as Cerebral Palsy, Spina Bifida or Muscular Dystrophy. A Live-in Carer can enable a young adult to leave home and live more independently. They will be happy to support their client to attend college or university or go to work.  Our Live-in Carers support older people with conditions like Dementia and Arthritis to remain living in their own homes. They also support clients with acquired disabilities like Brain or Spinal Injury. Some of the Clients we support live with progressive conditions such as Huntingdon’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis and Motor Neurone Disease. We are an inclusive company and will do our very best to support adults of any age, with any condition.
