Caring for Couples
We Accommodate You
It’s a sad fact that many nursing homes cannot provide accommodation for couples: often leaving people who have lived together for many years to face life without their partner at the time when they need them the most.
At Care4U Healthcare we strongly believe that older people should be assisted by whatever means possible to continue living together in familiar surroundings regardless of the conditions that affect them. That is why we work hard with the couple and their family to put together a plan of care and support that considers all their medical and social needs.
Sometimes one partner in the relationship is more able than the other and so the care of the less able person falls to them. We can offer support when the main caregiver needs a break or some extra support at home for a short time.
Building a Relationship
We believe that the bond between the caregiver and the couple is special too. It’s not just a question of the caregiver helping around the house, with medication and with and personal care that is needed – the assistant also provides emotional support when required. We see everyone that we deal with as real people with their own wants and needs – when you do this, it’s easy to get to know each other well and use this knowledge as a foundation for a healthy respectful relationship.
In most cases, staying at home in well-loved surroundings, without the upheaval of a major move, provides a stress free, seamless move into assisted living. When there is no need to adjust to new surroundings and familiar people, places and things are close at hand, all your energies can be applied to enjoying your quality of life rather than worrying about new situations.
Financially, it is generally less expensive to have a live-in caregiver at home for two people than to be faced with two sets of fees for separate care of each partner.
