Live-in care for couples
For couples that feel the time has come to look for some support around the house, live-in care offers a unique and cost-effective opportunity to remain living independently in the home you’ve built together.
Live-in care for couples
The upheaval of moving to a care home, along with costs which are nearly double that of receiving live-in care at home, only adds to making a potentially challenging time more uncertain. For couples that are determined to stay together, sleeping in the same room and in the same bed, live-in care works out significantly cheaper than two rooms in a care home. It allows you and your loved one to maintain your mutual independence while continuing to do the things you love doing together, whether it’s curling up in front of the TV or getting out and about to pursue your hobbies and interests.
Your live-in carer will work with you both to make sure your care needs are met, taking the pressure off of you and your partner so you can both enjoy time with each other in the same way you did before. While they’ll be available to you around-the-clock, your carer will also know how to make themselves scarce when you need time alone, respecting the boundaries you set out in your initial conversations with us while always being on-hand to assist you both when needed.

We offer three distinct tiers of support, each of which covers the full range of live-in care services from essential support to high needs specialist care. As we learn more about you and your situation, we’ll tell you very clearly what level of support we think you need and how much it will cost you.

Compare care costs for couples
Live-in care provides a number of health benefits and has been shown to improve people’s general wellbeing and quality of life. Also, it can work out far more cost effective than a care home or even a traditional visiting care service, especially for couples.
The weekly price of a live-in care package focusing solely on you or your loved one is roughly equal to the price of a single bed in a residential home and that’s without the nursing and care services attached.
For couples, neither a care home nor visiting care services offer anything like the same level of reassurance, safety and cost-effectiveness as live-in care does. What’s more, live-in care means that the time you spend together is quality time, not spent worrying about each other’s care needs but really living life the way you always did before.
