Nurse-led, 24/7 Live in Specialist Care

A large number of the self-employed carers on our database have the experience to be live in care specialists. Each will specialise in one or more of the following:

  • Physical disability and/or visual or hearing loss (or both).
  • Dementia conditions as well as Alzheimer’s.
  • Parkinson’s.
  • Palliative care and end of life care.
  • Stroke recovery.
  • Long-term conditions such as motor-neurone disease.
  • Acquired brain injury following a stroke or accident.
  • Neuromuscular conditions, which are complex because they can affect both motor skills and cognition.
  • Support for those on the Autistic spectrum.
