Live-in care for couples

Live-in care support is also available to couples and is the most popular service we offer. It is unfortunate that many nursing homes are unable to provide accommodation to couples, often resulting in people who have lived with their partners for several years to spend the rest of their lives separated at such a crucial time.

At Watra Care, we are very passionate about the elderly and we believe they should be assisted in any way possible. We believe they should remain with their loved ones, regardless of any physical or mental health condition which may affect them. This is why we continue to work our best with couples as well as their families to devise a plan of support which details all their needs and requirements.

Caring available to couples

Our caring and professional homecare assistants can provide support to couples living inside their own homes, including assistance in and around the house, medical support and personal care. Our assistants can also provide companionship if required, they also understand the importance of keeping companionship between a couple discreet with respect to the special bond between the individuals involved.

At Watra Care, we also value the bond between the assistant and the couple. Our assistants do not only assist customers around the house, with medical support and personal care but are also available to turn to for emotional support. We wish to understand the wants and needs of all our customers and we also see this as an opportunity to build a healthy and honourable relationship with our customers.


The advantages of live-in care are greatly enhanced if a couple are receiving it. Both emotionally and financially.

Having the choice of staying at home alongside familiar surroundings without having to think about moving elsewhere can prove to be a stress-free and smooth experience. As there is no need to adjust to a new atmosphere and way of living, all of your energy can asserted into enjoying your usual everyday life rather than worrying about you will adapt to a new and uncertain environment.

Live-in care for couples is financially less expensive as you could have to pay two sets of payments to  have a live-in care assistant for each partner.

In some cases, there may one person in a relationship who is more able than the other and care of the other person may fall on them. At Watra Care, we provide support when the main care giver needs a break or some time away.
