We have been providing high-quality live-in care services to families across the country for over 10 years. At the heart of our service is enabling people to live an improved quality of life, with the care and support they need from a carefully well-matched, trained professional carer whose focus it is to enhance health and overall well-being.
Live-in care enables older people to live in the safety and comfort of their own home with highly personalised one-to-one care – something even the very best residential care homes simply cannot provide. Care provided by dedicated carer who truly understands and monitors your hydration needs can prevent dehydration in the elderly and significantly reduce unnecessary hospital admissions.
Our industry leading training programme, which includes modules on food, hydration and nutrition, has been created with leading charities and clinical experts and goes well beyond industry standards. This enables our professional carers to support a range of conditions affecting older people, including those complex conditions that require more monitoring, care and support and can result in symptoms of dehydration in elderly. Carers are trained to effectively manage medications, identify side effects including dehydration and prevent dehydration in elderly people.
Carers are on-hand around the clock to remind clients to hydrate throughout the day, especially at mealtimes and after any exercise or exertion. They will ensure water is kept in places where it is accessible and easy to reach. They will sensitively support clients personal care ensuring they have regular and easy access to the bathroom when drinking increasing levels of fluids.
All our professional carers are trained in how to care with someone living with dementia and use a range of best practice dementia care techniques proven to provide reassurance, reduce anxiety and calm behaviours. They can effectively manage hydration and prevent dehydration, so commonly experienced by those living with dementia. This means the person with dementia can live well at home, despite the challenges dementia can present with the proactive and gentle encouragement provided by our dementia carers.
At The Good Care Group every decision is driven by delivering improved health outcomes for our clients. Through our dedicated and committed approach to providing high quality care to our clients and the use of our market-leading digital technology, we see significant improvements in our clients’ overall health and wellbeing every year.
