Anybody who needs full time care and wants to live in their own home.
With live-in care, you have a trained carer who lives with you; who is there for you 24 hours a day; who is there to help you to live life as you choose, in your own home.
For our elderly clients, it means that they can carry on living at home in Northern Ireland, with their husband or wife, garden, pets and familiar circle of friends and neighbours.
For our younger clients, it means that they can go to university, have a job, go to the pub, have a family and social life, and generally live life as they want.
Clients come to Christies Care needing help with a wide range of different conditions – from dementia to a severe physical disability (either acquired or congenital). Our clients may need full personal care and help with all movement, or they may just want the companionship and reassurance of someone else being there.
You can have live-in care for as long as you like: two weeks, a month, every now and again to cover while a family carer has a break, or for ever. It is up to you.
