Why is live-in care preferable to a care home in Brockenhurst?
If you have an elderly loved one who needs to be cared for but is reluctant to go into a care home, why not consider live-in care from Elder? This solution will enable your loved one to remain in their own home despite any disabilities they have.
Moving into a care home can mean sacrificing independence as well as leaving a familiar community. This may be very traumatic for your elderly relative, so if you want to be sure they are safe and being well cared for twenty-four hours a day, live-in care is the answer.
Is live-in care in the New Forest expensive?
Live-in care from Elder is surprisingly affordable and can work out at less than a place in a care home. It is much cheaper than any form of residential care for couples who both need support.
What are the benefits of a live-in carer in Brockenhurst?
If your loved one is fortunate enough to live in this beautiful village or the surrounding areas, they will certainly not want to move elsewhere. In addition to meeting your relative’s care needs in the home, a live-in carer will be able to transport them to nearby attractions, either by driving them if they have a car or by accompanying them in a taxi.
Choosing live-in care enables your loved one to remain independent and make the kind of choices about their lifestyle that would be lost if they had to go into a care home. Simple decisions such as what time to get up, where to eat their meals and how to spend their day may not seem very important, but having these choices means a much better quality of life for your relative.
What can a live-in carer do in Brockenhurst?
The New Forest is home to deer, ponies, and donkeys that can be seen wandering in and around the village when the carer takes your loved one out. There are beautiful cafes where they could enjoy afternoon tea with friends and plenty of picturesque places for a gentle stroll. If your relative would enjoy a different trip out, there are many places to go with their live-in carer.
The old shipbuilding village of Buckler’s Hard is close by and is fascinating to visit, or they could explore the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu. Also within easy reach is the traditional New Forest village of Burley, where the Old Farmhouse is a favourite meeting place for senior citizens.
They will be able to carry on their usual hobbies and interests with extra support and remain in the place they feel safest. If your loved one needs escorting to the doctor’s surgery in Highwood Road or to the chiropodist in Brookley Road, this can also easily be arranged.
