Long term care for the elderly or disabled at home is a popular alternative to moving them to a nursing home – it means they can stay in familiar surroundings and stick to their usual routines, with a carer there to help ensure that they eat properly, that they can get washed, that they can move about or leave the house when they want to or need to. It’s a great way to keep people happier and healthier for as long as possible.
