LIVE-IN CARE SERVICES IN CANTERBURY

Though living with somebody new may feel unnerving, we really do go to great lengths to ensure all of our clients are matched with carers who best suit their day-to-day lifestyle and requirements.

4Life Healthcare Services - What is Live-In care??

WHAT IS LIVE-IN CARE?

Live-in Care has all the benefits of Domiciliary Care, but is especially suited to adults requiring 24 hour, round-the-clock support, from a carer living with them at home.

 

This can mean anything from personal or medical care needs, to daily routine assistance, companionship, and emotional support. 

 

Not only does this type of care enable clients to stay in their own home - without the need to go into a care home, it provides families with the peace of mind that a carer and companion is always at hand.

​With flexible care plans that can be altered at any time, our primary focus remains on supporting adult independence to achieve a greater quality of life.
