Do you need care at home services in Chelmsford?
There is no ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to visiting home care, so the reasons that someone may need support will be completely different to anyone else, including the type of care they receive. That’s why we get to know you and exactly how you like things done, so that your care is entirely bespoke to you.
Short term home care support
For some, care may just be for short visits throughout the week to help with shopping, housework and cooking. And if you find that you start to need extra support if you become more frail or are struggling with elements of your morning or evening routines, we can increase your care calls to cover you intermittently throughout the day. Furthermore, we can be around during the night when you may be feeling slightly more anxious or afraid of being by yourself, particularly if you’re prone to falls. Our compassionate carers can provide overnight support to give you extra peace of mind.
Intermittent long term care in the home
Everyone needs a break, particularly those who care for others full time. With respite care, you can take the time off that you need to rest and recuperate, leaving your loved one in the capable hands of our friendly carers who will pick up where you left off and provide the care and support that they need. We’ll make sure that we meet with you both beforehand to get everything in place ready for when you take a step back, giving you both extra peace of mind that your routines will be left untouched.
