Elderly Care for Couples

We understand that for most couples, picturing life in a care home without their other half feels incomplete. It is only natural for couples to want to stay together as they enter the next chapter of their lives. At Jackman’s Lodge, we proudly provide elderly care for couples and are here to support both of you as you make the transition into residential care. Our compassionate team can provide advice on care homes for couples, including how to choose the right one and what to do if only one spouse requires assisted living.

The Benefits of Care Homes for Couples

Moving into a care home as a couple can present numerous advantages that enhance the well-being and quality of life for both individuals. Some key benefits include:

Shared living space — Nursing homes for couples provide the opportunity to keep their shared living space, allowing couples to maintain their bond and create a sense of familiarity. Being able to live together in a care home promotes companionship and emotional support.

Professional care and support — At Jackman’s Lodge, we have dedicated staff trained in providing personalised care for elderly individuals. We can offer assistance with daily management, administering medication and providing nutritious meals.

Focus on quality time — Couples who choose a care home can alleviate the burden of caregiving on themselves, as care is available around the clock from our trained staff. Assisted living for couples allows them to focus on their relationship and enjoy quality time together.

Peace of mind — Care homes for couples provide peace of mind for both individuals. Couples can take comfort in knowing that they have access to professional care and support whenever needed. This alleviates concerns about safety and the challenges of ageing at home.

Choosing a Care Home as a Couple

Selecting the right care home for you and your spouse requires careful consideration.

Start by making plans before the need for care arises and allow time for research. You should contact several care homes to gather information, ask questions and discuss your specific needs as a couple. Comparing the different services each care home provides can help you make an informed decision. If possible, you and your spouse should arrange to visit potential care homes, as a firsthand visit will allow you to assess the environment and determine which home is right for you both.

Reading online reviews and seeking recommendations from friends and family who have experience with care homes could also provide valuable insight into the quality of care provided by different facilities.

If you and your spouse would like to arrange a visit to Jackman’s Lodge, please call our friendly team today on 01483 694115.
