In this guide we look at the option of your relative coming to live with you in your home. When should you consider this? What are the potential benefits and drawbacks of such an arrangement? This guide is aimed at those people whose relative is still comparatively independent.

If you're wondering what kind of help would be best for your relative or friend, our Care advice tool can give you some guidance about housing options, day-to-day living arrangements and how to pay for care. 

Use our Care services directory to find care homes and domiciliary care anywhere in the UK. You can also find support groups for people affected by dementia.
