Choice Homecare

Why consider a care home when there is a better option available?

Most people experience care-workers popping in during the day to provide care and support. When this is no longer enough, a nursing or Care home is often considered the only option.

This is not true, Live-in care is better positioned to provide full time 1-2-1 care which is tailored to the needs of the individual.

How can I receive 1-2-1 care at home?

With Live-in care, 1-2-1 care is guaranteed. Even in specialist nursing homes, care-worker to resident ratios are on average 1-6. Residents need to adhear to the care home's routine, and have far less choice or control over their care.

With Live-in care, Care is not shared, it is responsive to individual needs when required, without waiting. Contact us to find out more.

If you can stay in your own home and community, why move to a care home?  

We spend our lives building up treasured memories in our home, and the thought of having to move on, is distressing for most. 

Our care-workers are trained to maintain an individual’s hobbies, interests and community links, while caring for them in thier own home. This adds to one’s life experience and wellbeing and comes as standard with our service.

Companionship, not without it's merits

Age UK, identified ‘loneliness’ as one of the greatest challenges for those over 65.

Having another person around, can be a great source of comfort and encouragement. Knowing your loved one has access to the care they need and the companionship they desire, is often a great source of reassurance.
