Trusted Interim Care
Let us take the pressure off and allow you to take your time
Interim Care to give you time and reassurance
Making a snap decision about care is very difficult.
You have to get it right. Decisions about care are usually once in a life-time and that decision will often affect the rest of a person’s life.
Not many of us plan for future care, for ourselves or our loved ones, and then we find that we have to make a quick decision on something that is so important to the quality of someone’s life. Quality at a time when it is not only vital to the individual, but the wider family group.
You may be looking at care homes and have found us to compare, which is only logical.
Many people are unaware that live-in home care is a possible alternative. Not only is it the preferable option for better health and wellbeing but it’s an affordable one too when compared with the cost of care homes and residential nursing.
Planning care is a big decision. It is only right to take time to think and avoid making hurried, ill-thought through decisions.
Perhaps your loved one is ill in hospital, or has had a fall, or something else goes suddenly wrong. Where possible family usually step in to help but there comes a time when you simply can’t do it anymore. Work or family commitments will come into play. This is when people are under most pressure to find an urgent solution and may be forced to take a decision simply because there is no time to consider the alternatives.
Choose our Interim Care Package
With Christies Care there is an alternative, take our 4-6 week Interim Care package.
We can match you with a live-in carer for a month or six weeks to allow you the breathing space you need to make your long-term care plans. This gives you time to assess what is best for your loved one, whether it be to remain in the familiarity of their own home, or to decide which is the best care home.
How it works
Call our Care Team who will talk to you in-depth about your needs and wants. A local area care consultant will visit to complete an assessment with absolutely no obligation, we then prepare a suggested care package that takes not only the individual’s needs and wishes, but those of the family and to include all health professionals and those in your community who are part of your life. Between the person, the family, the community and Christies, a full support package is developed, unique to each individual. We call this a ‘Partnership of Care’.
You can decide what to do next
If you choose our trial package, a live-in carer will move in to look after your loved one, causing the least amount of disruption and taking pressure off the family. The family then have time to make a fully considered decision. They can weigh up options and decide on the best interests of the person who actually needs the care.

You can provide 2 weeks’ notice at any time.
