Live-in Care Wiltshire
Live-in care has many benefits. With one-to-one care your loved one can remain in the comfort of their own home, surrounded by their precious possessions and memories and continue with their familiar routines.
This can be important for many older people, especially if they have problems such as dementia, which makes unfamiliar surroundings unsettling.
Live-in care offers you the peace of mind that your loved one is safe, happy and well cared for. You can visit them whenever you want, and they can continue to enjoy hobbies, shopping, outings and social events.

Places our clients love to visit
Here are just a few of the wonderful places in Wiltshire your loved one could enjoy with the assistance of their carer.
The glorious medieval city of Salisbury, with its stunning cathedral, offers many fascinating attractions as well as great shopping and food.
A trip to Salisbury wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the majestic early English gothic cathedral. The 800-year-old cathedral has the tallest spire in Britain as well as the world’s oldest working mechanical clock. You can enjoy the special peace that comes from being in an ancient religious building, standing inside the stone walls as sunlight streams through glorious stained glass. The Cathedral also houses an original 1215 Magna Carta, one of only four in existence.
The cathedral has disabled access and facilities, although some areas may be inaccessible to those with mobility problems. There are, however, many interactive exhibitions that are fully accessible.
Salisbury also has a fascinating museum, quaint streets to explore, a good variety of independent shops as well as excellent cafes and restaurants.
The Visit Wiltshire website has more information about Salisbury as well as many other enjoyable places to explore in Wiltshire.
