If you’re looking for a comprehensive, cost-effective alternative to a care home, live in care may be for you. The emotional strain associated with moving away from the familiarity and comfort of home often leads to physical decline, further loss of independence and diminished quality of life.

At West Park Care we recruit live in care staff specifically for each client and make sure that the carer is selected for each client’s specific needs. It can often be the case that hourly care is not sufficient but leaving familiar surroundings to move into a care home is also not the desired option so live in care could well be the answer. Live in Care allows someone to be cared for one on one in familiar surroundings. 

With Live in care a professional carer lives in the property and provides round the clock support, promoting independence and building a relationship that promotes person centred care. Each package of care is bespoke to each individual ensuring all needs are met.
