Specialised dementia care in Basildon
With 30 years under our belt, we’re proud to be one of the UK’s leading dementia care specialists, and we ensure that every single carer is trained on dealing with the different types of dementia and how they present in each individual. From memory loss and confusion to helping an individual’s family understand their loved ones’ diagnosis, our Basildon team will be here to provide comfort and support.
With extensive knowledge in dementia care, we understand the importance of familiarity. Our fully-trained team will support you and your loved ones while enabling you to remain comfortable and secure in your own home, while also providing guidance to your family on how you can communicate with each other and enjoy your time together.
Elderly care to support your independence
As we get older, we understand that day-to-day tasks may seem more difficult than they used to be and our minds aren’t always as quick as they once were, but this doesn’t mean that you have to sacrifice your independence to accommodate that.
You may just need a little help in sorting the laundry out, or perhaps you aren’t as confident to go for your morning walk by yourself as you used to be. For some, you may be living with a progressive condition that requires more intensive support to help you get up and ready for the day.
Nonetheless, Lynne and her team will work with you to provide a tailored care package that enables you to remain free and independent, while your family have the comfort of knowing that you’re in safe hands.
Respite care for your short-term needs
Care needs can arise at any time, sometimes with such little notice that finding an alternative option seems impossible. But with Lynne and her team, we can provide respite care packages to give you the support you need with as little as 24-hours’ notice.
Whether you’ve sustained an unexpected illness or injury, you’re due to be discharged from hospital and would like some extra support in getting back on your feet, or your usual caregiver is tending to an emergency; we can swiftly put a package of care in place with minimal disruption to your usual routine.
The need for respite care can arise in any number of instances, and our Basildon team can provide support for any of the following:
- Hospital discharge – If you need short-term care after time in hospital to rebuild your independence
- Emergencies – When your regular carer needs to tend to an emergency
- Short breaks – Giving your carer some time to rest and recuperate without any detriment to your ongoing care
- One-off occasions – When you want to join your family to enjoy a special event, such as a wedding or birthday celebration
Fully-trained cares in Basildon
We’re proud to be one of the leading care providers in the UK, and with 30 years’ experience we understand exactly what is needed to provide the perfect level of care. The qualities it takes to become a carer are not always traits that can be taught, which is why we only select the very best individuals to become part of our family.
Each of our carers are fully trained in areas including manual handling, health & safety, safeguarding and medication support, and each harbour the faultless qualities of compassion, empathy and understanding.
As well as receiving full background checks, such as Disclosure Barring Service (DBS) screening, our carers also receive regular training courses to ensure their skills and practice are always of the highest standard.
