One of the many issues we care deeply about at Arbour Companions & Care is the current delays experienced in hospital discharge. It is a hugely stressful time for the individual who is ready to leave and for their concerned family.

Of course, you want to make sure that after a stay in hospital the right level of care is in place. All too often that can mean waiting for a space to become available at a care home you feel happy with. As more and more people become aware of live-in care as a service, this is also becoming a viable option.

We are so happy to have been able to offer care and support to those who need it through our Arbour Carers. If you have a loved one in hospital and you want to talk about options, please contact us. We are here to talk through all the possibilities to give you peace of mind.

  • "Arbour provided live-in carers for my wife for six years from 2017-2023 including the pandemic. My main impression is of a very professional organisation in which owners and staff worked all the time to provide the support the client needed at as high a standard as possible. They gave equal attention to statutory requirements, care plans and staff training and never cut any corners."


  • "The support that we have had from Arbour Care has been, quite literally, lifesaving. They found an amazing carer to look after my elderly and disabled husband, who is very experienced, kind and thoughtful. She has made an enormous positive difference to the quality of our lives and I will always be grateful to her and cannot thank her enough."
