Costs of care depend greatly on an individual’s needs, their location and the level of service they receive. Live-in care is not more expensive than a nursing care home but comparable and you get so much more included. With live-in care you have a dedicated carer who lives with you and is available to help you throughout the day and night. They build a strong relationship with you so they know what you like to eat and do, your daily routines and even when you are off colour or your health is of concern.
