Why should you opt-in for 24 hour home care at Safehands?
In 2013, Public Service researched on how people prefer to organise their care in older age. It turned out that 85% of elderly voted for 24 hour home care agencies rather than care homes. Many people preferred the option to stay home and live the independent life on their terms.
Many older people prefer live in care services because it gives them the option to remain home and follow the usual routine. The costs of live in care are often smaller than the costs of staying in care home. At Safehands, we tailored all packages individually to our client’s needs. Our care packages are flexible, meaning that you can add or remove any services if necessary. All our live in carers are professional, respectful, experienced and compassionate.

Live in care is not only an economical option but also the one that gives you freedom and independence.
