Would we have to live separately in different parts of the village or can we still live together?
A: This is one of the major advantages of home-based care. Loving couples can live together for much longer. – Phil Barker, managing director of Renishaw Hills
A: Ideally, you would simply have care provided in your home for each of you, as needed, and there would be no need to be separated. Financial, physical or mental circumstances may arise that require one of you to move to a care centre, in which case hopefully there is such a facility within the village or close by. – Rob Jones, retirement living consultant to The Somerset Lifestyle and Retirement Village
