Live-in Care in Hertfordshire

Helping you retain independence by providing support and care at home in Hertfordshire

Live-in care in Hertfordshire can be hard to find, with selecting a carer for a loved one in the area, a tough choice.

Better Healthcare have provided live-in carers in Hertfordshire and the surrounding areas for many years. We are a private company, rather than a shareholder-run company. Therefore, we are driven by the need to provide the best live-in care for your family and loved ones across the UK.

We cover the County of Hertfordshire extensively, able to provide live-in carers across Herts; in Ware, Stevenage, Bushey, Welwyn-Garden City, Waltham Abbey and beyond.

Independence is an important key to happiness for many and, when we get older, potentially requiring daily care and support, it can be difficult to maintain this independence. We care for people living at home across the UK, with regional offices stretching from Brighton to Peterborough and carers who can assist across the country.

That is where live-in care can help; providing those in need with support, assistance and independence in their own home without having to move into a residential care home.

Live-in Care at home in Hertfordshire provides:

  • Assistance with personal care, such as grooming, bathing, dressing, and toileting
  • Help with getting up in the morning and going to bed
  • Homemaking, such as shopping, meal preparation and light cleaning
  • Relief and respite for caregivers
  • Helping the Service User to rehabilitate at home following a period of ill health
  • Medication supervision
  • Light housekeeping
  • Assistance with maintaining safety and security
