It is becoming more common for elderly couples to live together or nearby in care homes, as many facilities are recognising the importance of preserving the relationships and social connections of their residents.
However, this may depend on the availability of suitable facilities and the individual needs of the couple.
When choosing a care home for elderly couples, it is important to consider factors such as the level of care provided, the location, the cost, the availability of private rooms or shared accommodations and the social activities and programs available.
If one partner requires more care than the other, the home may provide different care services to ensure both individuals’ needs are met.
It is important for the care home staff to work closely with the couple and their family members to develop a care plan that meets their unique needs.
At Springfield, we offer a unique care pathway from care at your home through to a complete care pathway in our homes, meaning we offer residential care through to complex nursing, and palliative care.
