An Overview of What We Do
Making the decision for either yourself or a loved-one to begin to receive care can be a difficult step to take. The concerns over lack of privacy or those of inviting a stranger into the home are understandably part of the resistance to begin care. Once this first step has been made however, we often find that the service user, instead of looking at receiving homecare as being a negative thing, can in-fact be very empowering and in many cases re-abling. Below you will find a list of services we offer, although they are categorised and quite specific, there is of-course a large part of our service that is being compassionate, friendly… caring.
Re-ablement is generally designed to help people learn or relearn the skills necessary for daily living which may have been lost through deterioration in health and/or increased support needs. A focus on regaining physical ability is central, as is active reassessment.We find that people using reablement welcome the emphasis on helping them gain independence and better functioning, although evidence on user and carer views needs to be strengthened. Re-Ablement improves outcomes, particularly in terms of restoring people’s ability to perform usual activities and improving their perceived quality of life. Talk to us about re-ablement
Dementia & Alzheimer's
If you or someone you love is affected by dementia you have no-doubt been advised to seek help early. This is because there are a variety of things that can be done to prepare and improve quality of life during this period. Maintaining good physical health, managing memory loss with notes, prompts and reminders, establish a routine, take your time, and ask for help.
Our carers are well trained to deal with dementia and alzheimer's service users and can help to greatly take the pressure of those around someone who is suffering such progressive illness.Talk to us about Dementia & Alzheimer's
The population of the UK is ageing year-on-year. For this reason there is an increasing number of us up and down the country facing a very similar decision, whether to bring in some outside help. We provide non-medical quality aged care services to assist people to live independently at home.
Our care-givers are an invaluable resource in helping families eliminate worry, reduce stress and re-establish personal freedom. From assistance with personal care, house cleaning, meal preparation, shopping and paying bills, we're here to help with individual needs on a case-by-case basis.Talk to us about elderly care
Those With Sensory Loss
Regardless of whether as a result of a stroke, an accident or disease, sensory loss always has a big impact on people's lives. Our main concern with supporting those individuals with sensory loss is to try and allow them to maintain as much independence as they can comfortably and safely manage.
For those who wish to remain in their home environment we provide a service that enables them to remain there and to maintain as much normalty as possible. If required the continuity of service can go from getting out of bed in the morning to getting back into bed on the evening and anything inbetween, during the process of a normal day.Talk to us about caring for those with sensory loss
For those people who are housebound, or struggle to get out of their homes, having someone regularly come round to see them can be a great comfort. Our befriending service is aimed at just such people.
Our befriending service is not just for elderly people; in-fact befriending is hugely beneficial to anyone who needs some company, from those with no close neighbours to recent widowers to those recently discharged from hospital who are unable to go out of the house.Talk to us about befreinding
Occupational therapy involves caring for those with physical and psychiatric conditions and in doing so using specific activities to prevent disability and promote independent function in all aspects of daily life. Our occupational therapists work with people of all ages to help them overcome the effects of disability caused by physical or psychological illness, ageing or accident.
In working with people who require occupational therapy we are looking to enable them to lead full and satisfying lives as independently as possible.Talk to us about occupational therapy
