There are lots to consider when choosing care for yourself or a loved one, but perhaps the most important thing to remember is that with home care in Taunton, you can receive one-to-one bespoke care all in the comfort of your own home. Home care means that you don’t have the stress and upheaval of having to leave your familiar environment and move into residential care; you can stay right where you are with your partner or beloved pets with care that suits you.
What’s more, our team in Taunton are regulated by the governing body for care in England – the Care Quality Commission (CQC). They ensure that we provide an all-round safe, effective and responsive service to our customers and train our carers to the highest standards.
From 30-minute visits for help with the housework and shopping to full-time, live-in care for more complex health conditions, we have a whole range of different care options available to suit a variety of different needs.
As well as supporting you with practical tasks around the home and with personal care, we’re also here to make sure you’re okay and help you to fulfil your hobbies and interests. So, whether you enjoy doing a jigsaw puzzle with a cup of tea or love visiting your local garden centre, we’ll be right there with you.
You may need care at short notice if your regular caregiver is unavailable, or you may be thinking about planning for when your parents become too frail to continue doing everything for themselves – there are many different reasons for needing care, and they will naturally change along the course of your care journey. Our team providing live in care in Taunton will get to know you and find out exactly what you need help with, as well as making sure you are looked after with dignity and in a way that is meaningful to you.
If you’re in your senior years and are starting to notice that you’re having trouble reaching for or gripping cups and utensils, or perhaps you’re not as steady on your feet as you once were, our carers can drop in at a time that suits you to clean the dishes, make your lunch and do the vacuuming, taking and stress out of doing this by yourself. They’ll even sit down with you to have a cup of coffee and a natter, so you never have to worry about being alone.
As a full-time carer, it’s really important that you take time out away from your care duties. Looking after a loved one can take its toll on your physical and mental health, so having a well-earned break should be a part of your care routine. While you take a step back, respite care from our Taunton team can seamlessly replace the care that you would normally deliver, keeping to the same patterns of care that you have set up. That way, you can rest assured that your loved one is getting the right care they need from our friendly team and you can come back feeling refreshed and ready to pick up where you left off.
If your regular support has been taken ill or your health has quickly deteriorated and you need care there and then, emergency care is an ideal option for when you need urgent support. We can usually have a support plan in place within 24 hours, sometimes sooner if you are in a crisis situation, all with the added reassurance that your care is being delivered by professional and friendly carers who will make you feel at ease in what can be quite an anxious time.
Emma and her team of carers in Taunton are dedicated to ensuring you have the best care at home – whether you’re in your eighties living with dementia or in your thirties with cerebral palsy. And it’s the nurture and training of our carers that make them some of the best in the industry. Our award-winning training covers first aid, manual handling, personal care, medication, mobility and safeguarding, and is provided to all of our new recruits and as refresher courses throughout the year.
All of our carers are fully vetted by our selection process, with multiple character references and Disclosure Barring Service (DBS) screenings before they care for any of our customers. That way, you have the full assurance that your carers are properly checked and have received industry standard training.
