Care needs may arise for many reasons; for many it’s companionship and support for degenerative conditions such as dementia. Yet for others, it could be respite care due to your usual carer tending to a family emergency. Nonetheless, the Sefton team can help with the following:
Home visits start form just 30-minutes per week to several daily calls, all arranged to fit in your and your loved one’s timetable and routine.
As the going says, it does what it says on the tin. A live-in carer will live with you, in your home and support with round-the-clock care as and when you require it. All our carers draw on years of knowledge and have ample experience working with various conditions including motor neurone disease, cerebral palsy and dementia.
Moving out of your family home can be daunting and often causes excess anxiety, but with live-in care, you’ll remain at home whilst receiving high-quality, friendly care. Within our Sefton branch, there’s also support from experienced live-in care managers, here to support our live-in carers and customers. As well as offering more complex care at home for needs such as PEG feeding, catheters and stomas, live-in care can help with:
Live-in care provides consistency of care day and night when you need it most, but that’s not all, live-in care offers you and your family peace of mind that you’re in the best possible hands.
Also known as home care, domiciliary care lets you or your loved one be in full control of your care. Led by you, the Sefton team can provide intensive or lighter care to support your pre-existing routine.
You may need help getting to the shops or visiting friends at the local coffee shop, or even help with medication, either way, our professional care team can assist. One of the main benefits of domiciliary care is that it provides friends and families with the reassurance that their loved one is being fully supported.
We’re proud to be one of the UK’s leading dementia care specialists. Offering extensive knowledge and expertise, our carers are fully-trained to support families and friends to support you throughout the difficult journey.
Maintaining routine is important, particularly with the added challenges that come with memory loss, confusion and mobility issues. Our carers will spend time getting to know you and your loved one, making sure they receive the very best care, regardless of whether their condition is early onset or more advanced.
Taking that first step in accepting care can be difficult, we understand. It may be that you simply need a reminder to take your medication, or someone to help cook your meals, whatever your needs, preserving your independence is our priority.
Elderly care can be interchangeable and increase in regularity and intensity, whenever required. Having an extra hand around the house can often take a huge weight off your and your family’s mind.
A great solution for when your regular caregivers needs a rest or you or your loved one needs intensive, short-term care after an illness or injury. Respite care keeps disruption to a minimum, from a few visits per week to having a carer live with you in your home, temporarily.
Our Sefton team can provide you with the short or longer term cover that you may need to ensure you have care in place for:
