Your local elderly live-in home care experts in Gosforth

Welcome to Bright Care Gosforth. Working alongside families and relatives, we provide relationship-focused care for elderly loved ones in the familiar comfort of their own homes.

Our live-in home care and live-in companionship for the elderly is a complete and holistic alternative to residential care. Having someone in the house throughout the day and night to provide care can give reassurance, and peace of mind.

Live-in home care is provided by carefully matched carers who live their lives alongside their clients in their homes who will be on hand to assist with all areas of everyday life. Live-in care is available 7 days a week, 365 days of the year. Care is usually provided by two Bright Carers who work together on a rotational basis. Our Bright Carers are employed by us. We never use agency staff to create a care package.

As experts in providing elderly care, we’re here to listen. Wherever you are in your live-in care journey, we can help talk through options. Call us today.
