Country Cousins: Live-in care

Description:

Country Cousins provide live-in care and companionship in your own home. For 55 years they have been introducing people to supportive compassionate carers known as 'Cousins'.

They offer client led short or long term help in times of crisis, holidays, post-operative or any situation that necessitates support, often helping when a person is less well than they had been, or their usual family carer is on holiday or in hospital themselves.

Live-in care is an alternative to a residential care home with reassuring continuity of one to one care and companionship. The cousins can provide personal care, meal and beverage preparation, medication prompting, shopping, driving, cleaning and domestic assistance, laundry services, pet care, escorted trips out, security and most importantly companionship.
