Here are some of the specialist home care services that we offer in Chatham:
Caring for a loved one is a wonderful act of kindness and a great way of showing your love and support. Nevertheless, it is important to acknowledge that caregiving is a massive undertaking that can cause high levels of stress. Being a primary carer is a big responsibility and caregiving can leave you feeling physically and emotionally drained. We understand the demands of caregiving and know that caregivers need an occasional break to recharge. Our respite care services are designed to give caregivers a well-deserved break from their responsibilities. One of our fully-trained carers will step in and take over your care duties so that you can enjoy some much-needed relaxation. Then, you can return to your loved one feeling healthy, refreshed, and mentally prepared to face the demands of caregiving.
It is natural – and normal – for elderly people to find certain activities more difficult as they get older. For instance, many elderly people struggle with household chores like cooking and cleaning or find driving more challenging. Needing help is nothing to be ashamed of and it is important that you reach out if you or a loved one needs support. We can arrange for a fully-trained carer to visit your elderly loved one and provide dedicated one-to-one support with daily tasks. Our elderly care plans are fully flexible and you can tailor the level of care to suit the needs of your loved one. We have visiting care plans starting from just 30 minutes a week through to full-time live-in support.
