Live-in Care in Hampshire

Here at Mumby’s, we pride ourselves on providing the finest quality home care available. We believe that live-in home care offers the best way to provide a rich, fulfilling life for those who need extra support.

Choosing live-in care will allow your loved one to stay in their home. Surrounded by their own things and enjoying the routines they are familiar with. Live-in care also offers opportunities to enhance the quality of your loved one’s life. Our carers make it easier for them to get out and enjoy hobbies, days out and social activities.

Why choose Mumby’s live-in care in Hampshire?

At Mumby’s, we treat every person as an individual, including our staff. This means we match the personality of the carer and cared-for to ensure a good relationship develops.

One of the ways we can support this process is by choosing local staff with knowledge of the area. This ensures that your home carer will know all the essential information your loved one will need. Things such as the opening times of the local doctor’s surgery or where to find disabled parking in town.

Our fully trained carers will ensure your loved ones personal, physical and emotional needs are taken care of.  They are always on hand to provide companionship, support and reassurance.

As well as this, our carers have a broad knowledge of resources available. Facilities such as local centres or clubs where your loved one can socialise with others. Unique local places to enjoy such as attractions, cafes, cinemas and shopping. Our carers will provide the support your loved one needs to enjoy these experiences. Essentials such as transport, helping with access, companionship and a feeling of security are guaranteed.

We cover the whole of Hampshire including  East Hampshire, Hart, New Forest, Test Valley, the boroughs of Basingstoke and Deane, Eastleigh, Fareham, Gosport, Havant and  Rushmoor. So wherever you live in Hampshire, you can be sure you’ll have an expert carer on hand to take care of your loved one.
