Most people reach a point in their life when they require some help, in order to remain living independently in their own home. As your loved one gets older, they often develop health conditions that make performing their usual daily tasks more difficult. It is often the case that family members are the first to notice when elderly loved ones starts to have difficulties carrying out their daily activities. It therefore becomes necessary to look at what options are available to you to support your elderly loved ones, to ensure that they are safe and able to maintain their quality of life.
Elderly care is designed uniquely to support the needs and requirements of elderly people. Your carer will be able to support you with all manner of tasks, ensuring safety, comfort and independence in the comfort of your own home. It gives elderly people the opportunity to stay living at home for as long as possible can provide valued support throughout illnesses and the general struggle that can come with old age.
We can provide a visiting carer for your loved one at home to help with their daily tasks. This usually includes assistance with things like:
Your visiting care plan is completely tailored to your needs with anything from short visits once a week, to several visits a day, including day sits and overnight care too. This can be amended whenever your loved one’s needs change, to ensure that they are always receiving the best level of care. Many elderly people are now able to remain living in their own home for much longer than was previously possible.
If your loved one requires a higher level of care, or continual support, then live-in care can be a great alternative to residential care. A dedicated carer will be carefully matched to your loved one, based on their personality and interests, and will move into a spare room to provide 24-hour assistance.
As well as delivering the physical aspects, all of our carers are able to offer emotional support, encouragement, and reassurance. Your carer will become a great companion and friend and will help you maintain your quality of life to the highest possible standard.
Your live-in carer can provide support with all of the things that a visiting carer does but on a more continual basis. Even if your needs are not particularly high your carer will be a great companion and can support you to get out and about in the community. It can also help to conquer loneliness.
