This is the time of year when many older people and their families think about making life changing decisions.
Dark nights, cold weather, sickness bugs around, all normal for the winter period but this is one time of year which makes being older, for many people, harder to bear.
The short days increase loneliness, the poor weather makes getting out an unwelcome experience and being one degree under with any kind of illness or symptom of old age brings thoughts and anxiety as to what the future holds.
For older people, reaching this place in life, there are two main choices which allow a person to be cared for, to feel safe and to experience and enjoy company. These choices are either to consider moving into a care home or to have a Live-in Carer in their own home.
Able Community Care has been offering and managing Live-in Care packages, the true alternative to moving into a care setting, since 1980. Since that time, we have enabled thousands of older people to remain living in their home of choice, their own. To be happy in familiar surroundings with their memories, in their local community yet know they are safe and cared for twenty-four hours a day.
Live-in Carers support an older person by providing a combination of domestic, personal and social care support enabling a person to live in their home just as they have always lived or wish to live. Call us on 01603 764567 or email to [email protected] for our free information pack.
