One thing that we always promise with our service is that we will cater it to suit your needs. We recognise that care is never a one-size-fits-all offering. It is something that needs to be tailored to the person receiving the care and their family. This is why we will always begin with a conversation whereby we get to know you, your needs, and your wants. This enables us to fit in with your life, making it more comfortable and enjoyable.
When you opt for our local care services, you can decide to go for live-in care, you can opt to have someone visit you for several hours per week, or simply once a week. The option is yours. We will tailor our service to suit your requirements.
What does a carer do?
A carer is someone who has received expert, specialist training to provide individuals with care and personal services in their own home environment. This means that they are able to live an independent, comfortable, and secure life, within surroundings that are familiar. There are many different tasks that carers and companions can help with. This includes the following…
- Housekeeping and other daily domestic tasks
- Support and companionship
- Meeting nutritional and dietary needs
- Specialist medical care and personal care
What are the benefits of choosing home care instead of a residential care unit?
There are a number of different reasons why home care is the most popular solution amongst individuals and families across Sunnybank tody. This includes the following:
- Emotional support – a lot of carers can become more like friends to their customers
- Friends and family can still come and go as they usually would
- Companionship, from sharing meals, to enjoying days out, to simply watching the television together
- Keeping interests, hobbies, and routines
- Flexible care that is built around you – your carer can assist and help you as much or as little as is needed
- Avoiding change – your daily life can pretty much stay the same except you are going to have that extra bit of support
- You can stay in your own home in the environment that you love the most
Who is home care for?
There are many different types of people that may require some form of home care. Of course, this includes people who are old and they need help to maintain their independence because they are no longer able to complete daily tasks on their own. However, there are a lot of other individuals who require home care as well. This includes those who are living with a disability. We have the experience and qualifications to provide disability care Sunnybank area. We can also provide home care for those who have recently been discharged from hospital. If you are not able to look after yourself during your recovery, home care services can ease pressure on family members as well as helping those who may not have family in the Sunnybank area. You may also want to make the most of respite care. This relates to care services that are designed to give your carer a break. If a family member currently provides your care, respite care can ensure that they take a much-deserved break. This may be so they can have a holiday or it could simply be so they can have some time to themselves. After all, the last thing you want is for your loved one to burn themselves out.
Should you opt for live-in care?
As discussed earlier, there are many different options available to you when it comes to home care. One of the big decisions you need to make is whether to go for a live-in carer or whether to opt for someone who will simply visit your premises but will not live with you on a continual basis. Of course, there is no right or wrong answer when determining what solution you are going to go for. It may be more suitable for some people to simply have someone visit them throughout the week. However, there are some distinct benefits associated with live in carers specifically. This includes the fact that customers can live in their known environment and they are able to maintain ownership of their homes. It is about maintaining as much dignity and independence as possible while safely receiving a service that is completely unique to their needs. With this type of care, you will also be able to stay with your beloved pets, which offer invaluable pleasure and company. Plus, if you are in a known and home environment, you are going to stay in your own community, which means you will be close to social events, neighbours, families, and friends.
What can a live-in carer offer you?
Live-in care has become very popular because it means that people can get the assistance that they required around the clock. Does this sound like something that would be right for you and your family? If so, please do not hesitate to get in touch for more information about the live in care services that we provide. To give you a better understanding, some of the different services that you can expect with a live in carer are as follows…
