If you or a loved one is in need of some additional care in your everyday life, you are faced with a number of options including care in your home or care within a residential setting such as a care home.
The right option depends on the individual, but to help you decide, here are some things to consider about Home Care:
In-home care enables you to be as independent as possible by being cared for in the comfort and familiarity of your own home. For many people this is the number one reason they choose Home Care as they do not want to leave their cherished home and community.
Although care homes usually have open visiting times, it is not the same as family, friends and neighbours being able to pop in and visit when they like and not feel they are intruding on other families or activities going on in the care home.
Home care is delivered by the same handful of carers who have been picked to fit in with your preferences and requirements. This means they get to know you, how you like things done and the care you need.
One-to-one care reduces your exposure to infection and illness and ensures their needs are met quickly.
We can create a Care Plan that means you get the care you need just for the hours and times to need it.
We continually assess your care needs and if additional care and support is needed due to a change in circumstances or short-term need, we can be flexible and react quickly to your needs.
