Helping you stay safe in the comfort of home
As we get older physical problems such as arthritis, osteoporosis, diabetes and heart issues can all affect our mobility, and can lead to us feeling less confident in carrying out our usual day-to-day activities. However, getting older should not have to mean loss of independence, mobility or a major change in lifestyle and our home care services support any condition that is impacting your ability to live well.
Our home care is person-centred and designed to ensure our clients remain in control of the service. We adopt a holistic approach to care that can be provided as a 24-hour live-in care service, day care or short-term respite care. A comprehensive assessment will often identify areas where some extra support could really make a difference. For example, ensuring eye and dental visits are up to date, putting a management plan in place to reduce the risk of falls without compromising independence, making sure medication is administered exactly as prescribed and that regular medication reviews take place and the monitoring of weight, nutrition and hydration are all areas that we can help with.
