You may have noticed that your elderly relative is starting to struggle with tasks that were previously very easy for them to do. It is natural for older people to start to require a bit of extra help in order to maintain their independence and quality of life. As we age, we are likely to experience an overall decline in physical and mental health. Physical limitations may mean that everyday tasks such as getting dressed, cooking meals, and driving, become more difficult.
Elderly care is a broad term used to describe any care that is designed to support the specific social and physical requirements of senior individuals as they age. This can include assistance with a range of daily tasks including:
Having this extra support means that your loved one can continue living independently in their own home and stay an active part of their own community.
With almost three decades of experience supporting elderly people across England and Wales, we can assure you that all of our Bristol carers receive award-winning training and are able to provide home care & specialist elderly care, which will allow your senior relative to continue living the independent lifestyle they want.
We are fully regulated by both the Care Quality Commission and the Care Inspectorate Wales, which means that our carers have been professionally trained to adhere to the highest standards in the industry. Every Helping Hands carer takes part in on-going training to boost their skills across a wide range of areas, from dementia care to complex care requirements. This ensures that your loved one is being provided with high quality care that is tailored to their specific needs.
Our carers are not just trained in delivering the physical aspects of care, but also on offering emotional support. Receiving support from one dedicated carer means that an elderly individual can build a more personal connection and have a constant source of encouragement and reassurance. Relatives have peace of mind, knowing that a professional caregiver is checking in on their loved one and providing them with assistance whenever they need it.
24/7 live in care in Bristol in the comfort of your own home can provide a great alternative to residential care, and can help you maintain the lifestyle that you love and are used to.
If you or your elderly relative needs support with a condition such as Alzheimer’s, or life after a stroke, then a fully trained carer can provide this specialised support, with options for round-the-clock care available.
Our Bristol team will take the time to get to know your loved one and develop an elderly care plan that is completely tailored to their needs, with anything from a short visit once a week, through to 24-hour live-in care. All of our carers are passionate about supporting people to lead fulfilled, happy, and independent lives, at any age.
