Our experienced, compassionate and qualified carers can assist with all daily life tasks during a period of long-term live-in care.
Long-term live-in care:
Personal care can mean assistance with bathing, cleaning and dressing. It can also require assistance at meal times, with transfers and mobility (getting in and out of bed), continence care and medication reminders.
Keeping the client company throughout the day and providing being another person to talk to. Companionship can also mean escorting a client to and from visits to family or friends, or other health and social activities.
This can consist of assistance with light housework such as ironing, vacuuming, cooking, shopping, collection of medication and pet care.
Our carers are able to provide both sleeping and waking night care. The sleeping night carer can be on duty should you require them at any time. Waking night care can be provided for clients who require care during the night by a carer who stays awake to address the clients’ needs.
Specialist live-in care:
This type of care tends to be provided to people who have just been discharged from hospital and lasts usually for up to six weeks. Reablement encourages clients to develop the confidence and skills to carry out daily life tasks themselves to continue to live at home. Our carers can assist with this and offer support with all daily living activities such as personal and domestic care and companionship.
End of life and Palliative Care
Care and support can be provided for people approaching the end of their life. The carer can offer social and physical round the clock support to the client and the family to improve the client’s quality of life.
We offer live-in care support for young adults with physical disabilities such as acquired brain injuries (stroke) and spinal injuries. Our carers can assist with for example all daily life tasks such personal care and to escort to and from social activities, medical appointments, general housework and shopping.
People with dementia (for example Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s disease) may eventually need live-in care if they are to remain in their own home. Dementia can be a challenging issue to face for families. However, with a suitable live-in carer and support it is possible for clients to enjoy an active, happy and fulfilling life in their own homes.
Those who have been diagnosed needing complex care often have complex conditions that rely on specialist equipment. This could be PEG feeding tubes, a colostomy bag or lift transfers. Our experienced and fully trained carers can assist with complex care needs, enabling our clients to remain at home and life their lives as independent as possible.
We work together with health professionals such as Continuing Healthcare Teams and Discharge Teams to ensure a smooth transition from hospital to the client’s home. A smooth and efficient discharge prevents unnecessary bed blocking of hospital beds and more importantly, is in the best interest of the client.
