The cost of Live-in Care varies, and will be subject to the level of dependency of the client, which will be determined by a Needs Assessment carried out by one of our managers. Generally, the price is comparable to that of moving into a Care Home.
The service can cater for a wide range of conditions including Alzheimer’s, dementia, Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis, and Stroke, as well as end-of-life palliative care, and can be available for an individual or couple.
Shipston Care will fully manage your care package to ensure your needs continue to be met.
Whilst most our service users are elderly, people of any age with a physical disability, medical requirement, terminal or
life-limiting illness can benefit from our live-in care service. This can also be arranged on a short-term basis, which can offer a welcome break for a family member who needs some respite for a week or two.
Many people with care needs often feel isolated and alone. Having someone who has the time to sit and chat, play cards or watch TV with you can be an immense relief and give you a real ‘lift’. Depending on your condition, it may even be possible for your carer to accompany you on holiday, giving you and your family the peace of mind that goes with having your personal carer at your side.
A carer is there to offer your real quality of life and enable you to live your life to the fullest.
The importance is that you have the option to continue living in your own home with independence and
dignity for as long as possible.
