The majority of seniors require some level of support as they reach their later years. This is because we are more likely to develop health conditions as we age – be it physical, cognitive, or mental – that prevent us from being able to complete our usual daily tasks. Elderly care is designed to support the specific needs of seniors as they age, and involves dedicated support for an elderly person who wishes to remain living in their own home.
Elderly care can involve an array of services to enable you to live safely and comfortably in your own home. It is a great way to maintain your independence and quality of life.
Your carer can support you with:
• Personal care
• Cooking meals
• Mobility support
• Administering medication
• Hobbies and social activities
Elderly care can be offered through regular home visits, anywhere from a 30 minute weekly visit, to multiple visits per day, or entire day sits – you can choose the level of support you need for when you need it.
Our fully regulated visiting plans are tailored completely to your needs and routine and can always be amended if your requirements change.
Your local branch manager Parnita and the rest of the Richmond team will very gladly come out to meet with you at home to discuss how we can provide the perfect care plan. As your local manager and point of contact Parnita will work very closely with you from the initial meeting, and throughout the entire duration of your care package.
If you or your loved one needs a more complex level of support, or has continual needs, then live-in care can be a great alternative to residential care. Your dedicated carer will move into a spare room, and be available to assist you around-the-clock whenever you need them. You will have peace of mind knowing that your loved one is receiving constant care and support, and all in the comfort of their own home.
Your live-in carer can support you with the same things as a visiting carer, but on a more continual basis.
Along with practical support, our carers are on hand to provide companionship, reassurance, and encouragement. Your carer will be carefully matched to you and will become a great companion or friend. Having support from one carer means you can easily build rapport and they can support all elements of your wellbeing.
Since 1989, we have been providing quality, bespoke home care services to people all over the country. This wouldn’t be possible without our specially trained, dedicated carers.
All of our Richmond carers are handpicked and go through our award-winning training programme, and complete ongoing training throughout their career with us to further their knowledge and experience. We are therefore able to provide an outstanding level of care for any elderly person in the Richmond area who requires extra support and would like to keep living at home.
Our carers in Richmond receive constant support from their local management team, as well as their area manager and our national training team. We also have a team of Clinical Nurse Specialists who support our carers and customers with higher level, or more complex needs.
We ensure that all of our carers are well prepared, and trained to a high standard regardless of the complexity of your needs.
We know that deciding between the options on how to support an elderly relative can be overwhelming, but we’re here to help. Simply give our friendly Richmond branch a call today on 02035530348 and we can guide you through the best options to support your loved one in their later years.
