Why Home Care ?
Is Home Care the right choice for your loved one?
Here are five things to consider:
- Family Time
- Continuity of Care
- Less Risk
- Lower Costs
In-home care enables individuals to be as independent as possible and to be cared for in the comfort of their own home.
There are no visiting hours with in-home care so family members can visit any time without concerns about intruding on others.
Home care is often provided by the same handful of carers, so they always know what kind of care has been given or is needed.
One-on-one care reduces your loved one’s exposure to infection or illness, and ensures that their needs are met quickly.
In-home care gives you the flexibility of hiring someone for only the hours when your loved one needs help the most.
Lincolnshire Quality Care provides professional home care services to suit the needs of you and your loved ones.
Frequently Asked Question
What are your hours of operation?
Our office is open Mon- Friday 6am – 10pm and on Saturday and Sunday from 8am -4pm 364 days a year. The office closes on Christmas Day. Between the hours of 10pm and 6am we operate an emergency out of hours service which can be accessed by telephone on 01472 347285.
How do you select your care staff?
We are careful about who we employ. We are looking for the best! As a guide we always ask ourselves the following question when considering staff for employment? “Would I be happy to have this person care for my elderly family members?” All our staff are trained in-house and we encourage them to further their knowledge and skills with additional courses and healthcare qualifications. We also carry out disclosure checks on all new staff and perform reference checks.
How do you determine the services I or my family member will need?
We will come and visit you in your home and carry out a free assessment of your needs. There is never any obligation to proceed with our services. Sometimes it’s just good to know what your options are.
How quickly can you set up a care package?
We aim to gets things set up as soon as you wish us to commence. Sometimes for a larger package it can take a few days to set up. Depending on how easily or quickly we are able to find a care worker from our team who we feel would be a good personality match and has the availability you are looking for. We will work closely with you to commence services at a time to suit you.
Can you provide a waking night sit or sleepover service?
Having someone around through the night can offer peace of mind to know there is someone who can support you in the night if you need it. Waking nights are when the care worker is required to stay awake all night. These are charged at a set hourly rate. We do not currently provide sleepover services.
How will the care workers access my home?
Many clients choose to use a keysafe which can be discreetly located on the outside of your property for care workers to access. A keysafe is accessed by a combination lock. They can be purchased for £20-£30 and installed fairly easily. We can arrange for a keysafe to be fitted for you should you decide on this. Some clients prefer to answer their front door to care workers themselves.
