Live-in care may be suitable if you have high dependency needs, complex care needs, recovering from a long stay in hospital or following a serious illness. Provided on a short or long term basis, the objective is to enable you to live as comfortably and safely as possible, whilst promoting independence for as long as possible within your home environment.
Beryl has dementia, both her and her family were adamant she is to stay in her own home for as long as possible. She has gone from being a very active client attending a gardening club and going shopping, to choosing to stay in bed a lot of the time as she feels safe there. Beryl doesn’t like too many people in her home at one time as it makes her feel anxious and would often make her retreat back to her room. Tabeth has been Beryl’s main carer for some time now and although they have good and bad days with the dementia they have an incredible bond and both Beryl and her family are happy with the care they receive from Tabeth. Beryl loves to sing and dance and often when she does come downstairs to the lounge the music is put on and they have a good sing along and dance session.
Beryl is 84 and we have been caring for her since January 2017. Prior to that, the team looked after her husband within the live in service so Beryl has been part of Manorcourt Homecare for quite some time.
