After living at Auriens for five years, Marie has developed several complex medical conditions which require a high level of assistance from the care team. Because staff are available and on shift 24 hours a day, she does not require a live-in carer and can maintain her independence. Instead, the team of carers and nurses visit her throughout the day to help with medication and personal care. They are also available to sit in her apartment overnight on more difficult days, without the requirement of an additional bedroom. At Auriens this level of service can equate to a saving of several thousand pounds every month.
