Home Care can be an excellent alternative to Care Homes. It can often be the best choice to caring for your elderly loved ones and keeping them in the comfort of their own homes.
Your elderly loved ones don’t necessarily have to move into a residential Care Home. This was once the traditional way to care for our older family members. There are many benefits to opting for Home Care.
The main advantage is that the person receiving care can stay in their own home. They can be around the people and things they know and love best. It can be stressful for older people to get used to new and unfamiliar surroundings in a Care Home. Coupled with the disruption to routines and lifestyles. Such a move can cause distress, not just to the individual, but to family as well.
With our wide range of Home Care services, we remove the stress and anxiety of caring for an elderly loved one. Rather than change what you or your loved one are used to, we tailor our care packages to fit around you. Our fully qualified and experienced carers provide professional care and peace of mind.
Is a service provided by carers who are trained and qualified to care for elderly people. They help with activities of daily living, or just offer some friendly companionship.
It can be considered when your older people may need assistance with activities of daily living, require specialist care such as dementia care, or live alone, and may be at risk for social isolation.
Home Care services provide one-on-one care and support. This means that you or your loved one is at the centre of the carer’s attention. Your loved one remains in the comfort of their own home and receives bespoke care and support. Continuity of their life style is maintained. They receive 24-hour care at home. Which in turn provides complete peace of mind for family members.
Care Homes were once the only option available for Elderly Care.
This meant a move to a new unfamiliar environment and a considerable change of lifestyle for our loved ones. Many carers share responsibility of clients. Our loved ones need to adapt their routines and lifestyles to the set schedules of the Care Home.
However, this type of care may suit many families and their elderly loved ones.
It is paramount that we understand the different types of Home Care Services available to us and which one would be the most respectful and dignified to our older people.
