Care at home
 

Why choose home care?

As we grow older, we can sometimes find difficulty in everyday tasks. From getting around to cooking and cleaning, age and illness can often limit many aspects of our life.

What is Live-in Care? 

 
Live-in care is a type of personalised care service where the carer lives at the client’s home, providing them with support and companionship in the comfort of their own house and with familiar surroundings.

Elderly care can be very challenging, the line between adequate care, attentive support and independence being very thin and sometimes delicate. When caring for the elderly, we can all do our bit to ensure that independence is being promoted.

With the proportion of older people in the country due to rise from 23% to 28% and the number of those aged 85+ set to double by 2030, we have a joint responsibility as a population to promote quality of life for older people and ensure that we are avoiding negative stereotyping and casual ageism.

Choosing the right care option for you or your loved one can be a difficult decision. When we become reliant on assistance from others, it can be hard to imagine how it would be possible to remain in our own homes, but here at Sova Healthcare we believe that every client should have the right to stay in familiar surroundings.

Old age companionship
 
Although companionship may not seem important in terms of physical care, it plays an incredibly important part in mental well being. Having someone to talk to, and knowing that they are looking out for you, can make all the difference and give you a completely different outlook on life.
