End of life care – Now is the time to plan your care!
End of Life Care in Eastbourne – Consider Live in Care
The BBC have reported that 1.86 million people over 50 had un met care needs in 2012/13 with this number set to increase.
Added to this the number of people receiving help from local councils reduced by 28% over the last 4 years and 1 in 10 people will need to spend £100,000 plus over their lifetimes on their care.
With social care in crisis it has never been more important for people to start to plan for their care needs in later life.
A relatively new service which is often overlooked is Live in Care. This service pairs clients with carers who enable people to remain living independently in their own homes by living in with the client. This means that clients are not tied to a specific regime of meal times or tasks giving far greater freedom than traditional home care services provide.
With the increasing demand for nursing home beds outstripping the supply the UKHCA (United Kingdom Home Care Association) are forecasting that this will be the largest growth area in care over the coming 15 years.
