Care In Your Own Home

Home care services is an alternative option for families looking for care. It is becoming increasing popular because it allows your loved one to remain in the comfort of their own home whilst remaining as independent as possible. At home carers are flexible and can support individuals based upon their specific needs and requirements.

Peace of mind

Caring for elderly parents in their home can be difficult, both mentally and physically. Therefore, home care can allow families to feel more comfortable and relaxed knowing their loved ones are safe and being looked after whilst they receive a break.

Carers can visit for as little as half an hour per week and they can provide personal care, companionship and help with household tasks through to more specialist care. Carers are there to help with tasks unique to your loved ones needs and requirements.

Detailed discussion of needs

It is very important that you have a full and detailed discussion with the home care agency about all aspects of your or your loved ones needs. If there are specific requirements based around dementia care in your own home for example, it is best to discuss these in advance.

Need Respite Care ?

Carers can also provide respite care. This is care provided for a short time such as for one or two weeks. This allows family and friends to get some well-earned rest without the worry and stress of the individual being left alone. Daily carer visits can extend to overnight care visits. This is continuous support throughout the night for those who require it and may include help with toileting, and other personal care activities.
