Who Can We Help?
At Home Caring, we are dedicated to providing everyone who needs our help with the high quality 24 hour care at home that they have been looking for. We focus on helping people who are either elderly or disabled, to give them the option to stay in their own home rather than moving into a care facility. Most people feel far more comfortable when they are sitting in their own home, surrounded by their own items and having a qualified healthcare professional, providing them with the care that they need.
Now, providing 24 hour care for the elderly in their own home is not always an easy thing to do as some people don’t like having strangers in their house. This is understandable, and we make every effort to ensure that the patient feels comfortable with the staff members, so that they feel comfortable and safe when they are around. A lot of the time, people start to think that they are coping a lot better than they actually are so might think that they don’t need this type of care, however it is important to recognize that if you or someone you love is struggling, it is okay to admit that a bit of help is needed.
24 Hour Care You Need
Like we mentioned above briefly, some people think that they are coping better than they are, which makes accepting 24 hour car a challenge sometimes. Even where this is the case, we here at Home Caring will still provide all the services necessary. We cannot force anyone to take our help or use our services, but there are some things that can be done to help convince the person who needs care that this is going to be the best thing for them.
By providing a team who are specially trained, we can offer you the 24 hour home care services that you need. Ensuring that our team have all the necessary information to be able to complete their job to the highest possible standard is important, and nothing should be left out no matter how embarrassing it feels to admit. We have seen it all before, and any information that we ask you for will go a long way to helping the team figure out exactly how to give you the 24 hour care that you need.
Services That You’re Going To Need
At Home Caring, we can provide all the services necessary to ensure that you or your loved one can stay in their own home rather than moving to a residential care home. Providing high quality 24 hour elderly care is what we are here for, and that means completing all of the tasks that might need doing no matter whether it is day or night. Some people need that little bit of extra care, and to have someone with them all day and all night, which is exactly what we can offer you.
Our team are specially trained to help with all kinds of tasks and services that could be required of them. For example, helping with going to the bathroom, washing hands and so on no matter what time it is is just one of the things that we can do. We can also aid with dressing and bathing to ensure that a good standard of hygiene is kept, taking care of some of the light housekeeping work that might need doing, and ensuring that all the meals are prepped and ready to go. Or, even just providing companionship through the night or the early hours of the morning when most other people are asleep. It isn’t always easy when you are awake, but there is nobody around to talk to, but when you have 24 hour care at home, this isn’t going to be an issue.
Sometimes remembering to take medication slips the mind of the best of us, but our team will make sure that this doesn’t happen to our patients. Medication reminders are a luxury that a lot of us wish we had, and this is one of the services that we at Home Caring can provide for those who are old or disabled.
This is not an extensive list of all the services that we offer, but it does give a good indication of the variety of things that we can do to make life easier for those who need the care but wish to stay in their own home.
Keeping Things Affordable
You might be sitting there reading this and wondering what the 24 hour in-home care costs are like. A lot of people think that it is going to cost them a small fortune to afford a service like this, but it doesn’t have to be. There are certain government programs that you could use to help take some of the cost, allowing you to focus on receiving the treatment. Cost is a big worry for a lot of people, especially those who don’t just have money to burn on 24 hour care so, at Home Caring, we are always looking for ways to help you keep things affordable.
If you are thinking that the 24 hour caregiver cost is going to be too much, look into it a little further before you make up your mind. We work hard to provide our services to all those who need them, meaning that we try to keep our prices as affordable as possible and open them up as much as we can. There is a fair amount of consumer-directed government funding that you could be entitled to which will help front the cost of some of this care, leaving a far smaller amount of money to pay.
The main priority for us at Home Caring is providing high-quality care to each and every one of our patients. We understand that needs change over time, and as part of our care package, we are going to be able to adapt and change the services that we provide based on the ever-changing needs of our clients. All of our patients are made to feel at ease and safe, so they don’t have to worry about being on their own. This is a big concern for a lot of our patients, but having someone with you every hour of the day can be a huge help with this. Having a caregiver means that you and your family know that there is always someone there to help when necessary around the clock.
A lot of people might think that moving into residential care means that they are going to get the best treatment possible, but this is not always necessarily the case. Instead, our patients receive the highest quality of care right from the comfort of their own home, meaning that they are not going to have to go through the stress of moving all their belongings to somewhere new, or getting rid of what can’t come with them. Instead, having 24 home care allows maximum comfort without compromising on the quality of the care. Also, you are never going to have to worry about having to wait hours for someone to come if you fall over in the night. Reasons similar to this is why a lot of people choose to move into residential care, but with 24 hour in-home care, this is no longer your only option.
All of our healthcare professionals have undergone the correct training and education to be able to provide you with nothing but the highest possible standard of care. The staff meet all of the regulations, have been through police checks and other screenings to ensure that they are clear.
Information For Friends And Family
Watching your loved one suffer is never going to be easy. No matter what the issue is, if they need 24 hour care because they are disabled or elderly, we are going to be able to help. Just as it is not always easy to allow someone into your home and look after you, it is not always going to be easy to trust someone you don’t know with one of the people that you love most. Here at Home Caring, we understand that, and we are willing to do whatever we can to put your mind at ease and show you that we are only here to give your loved one the best care possible.
It might be the case that up until now, you and others have been sharing this responsibility and making sure that they are okay. You have done your best, and you have done an incredible job, but you probably are not going to be able to provide the round the clock care that they need which is why using a service like ours is an option you need to consider. Allowing someone else to take over might be difficult, but it is the best thing for your loved one, and for you. You need someone who is trained to look after them and keep them safe, happy, and comfortable. Not that this is something you can’t do, but being there in the middle of the night when they fall or when they need something might not be possible for you, but it is for us. We are there 24/7 to make sure all needs are being met, no matter what they are.
A Customised Service
At Home Caring, we are dedicated to providing a fully customised service to our clients. We do not take a one shoe fits all approach when it comes to care as each person is different, and has a unique set of requirements. As such, all of our services are based on a case by case basis, assessing the situation, and giving the care requirements that are necessary as and when. For example, you might be perfectly fine, going to the toilet by yourself but need someone to help when it comes to getting dressed. We can ensure that you always have someone with you just in case you do need them at any point and that they are there to help you get dressed when you want to.
There is no set list of services that we stick to. If our clients need something that is within the power of the healthcare professional, we will do this for you. 24 hour care for the disabled and elderly is about maintaining the dignity of being able to carry on living independently, no matter what it takes.
