About

Live-in Care by The Good Care Group offers a great alternative to residential care. With a 24-hour live in carer, you will be provided with a professional and personalised service within the comfort of your own home. Staying in safe and familiar surroundings can greatly improve your quality of life, helping you maintain your independence whilst also receiving the support you require. Clients who receive live-in care by The Good Care Group see an improved quality of life and well-being, fewer falls and a reduced decline in function.

In addition to general care and support, we also have specialist services for complex conditions such as Dementia, Parkinson’s, MS and Stroke rehabilitation. We provide permanent care placements, and periods of short term respite care following hospital discharge, in an emergency or if your primary family carer needs to take a break or holiday.

We understand that choice, comfort and dignity are essential to happiness; this is why we carefully match our expertly trained carers to each and every client, considering their needs and personality.

    The virus that causes COVID-19 infects people of all ages. However, evidence to date suggests that two groups of people are at a higher risk of getting severe COVID-19 disease. These are older people (that is people over 60 years old); and those with underlying medical conditions (such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, and cancer). The risk of severe disease gradually increases with age starting from around 40 years. It’s important that adults in this age range protect themselves and in turn protect others that may be more vulnerable.

    The World Health Organisation (WHO) has issued advice for these two groups and for community support to ensure that they are protected from COVID-19 without being isolated, stigmatized, left in a position of increased vulnerability or unable to access basic provisions and social care.

    People over the age of 60 with one of these chronic diseases are at high risk and should take precautionary steps, such as avoiding crowds and nonessential travel. They should stay close to home, ensure they have essential supplies and medicines and have contingency plans if their families or neighbours become too sick to assist with care.
