If you realise help with personal care is needed, you will need to decide whether to receive that care at home or move into a residential care home. There are many benefits to receiving care at home if you need support with daily living.
One-to-one care cannot be achieved in a care home. Personal care will be carried out by a number of different carers depending on who is on shift on a particular day. With live-in care provided by a dedicated care team who will understand and respect all identified care needs. We take the time to match carefully a suitable carer who will best meet those specific needs. You are not given the choice in a care home.
There are many reasons why our clients choose us for personal care needs for the elderly:
All our carers are trained in how to provide care focused on dignity and independence. They adapt to their clients existing routines, while finding new ways to positively improve their health, well-being, and overall enjoyment. Our leading training programme means carers understand how to support personal care for those living with specialist conditions, like dementia and Parkinson’s or for those who require clinical nurse-led care.
When receiving care at home, we know how important it is to get the care team right. We will meet with you and your family to understand not just the personal care needs, but more importantly lifestyle choices and preferences. This understanding allows us to match a live-in care team who has the expertise to meet not only the care and support needs, but also shares common interests and values adding enjoyment and fulfilment to how you live your life at home. Our carers are focused on enhancing overall quality of life.
With our home personal care services, your loved one will receive care on a one-to-one basis from a team of the same carers. Given the sensitive nature of this type of care it gives reassurance that the same care team, who have really got to understand their needs and preferences, will be there to support your loved one.
