Care In Your Own Home
Home visits from a carer are becoming increasingly popular. Daily carer visits allow you to stay in the familiar surroundings and comfort of your own home whilst remaining as independent as you can. Carers are flexible, and can support individuals based upon their specific needs.
Carers can visit for as little as half an hour per week and they can provide personal care, companionship and household tasks through to more specialist nursing and dementia care. Carers are there to help with tasks unique to you and your needs whilst also helping you stay as independent as possible in your own home.
Detailed discussion of needs
It is very important that you have a full and detailed discussion with the home care agency about all aspects of your or your relative’s needs. If there are specific requirements based around dementia care for example, it is best to discuss these in advance.
Need Respite Care ?
Carers can also provide respite care. This is care provided for a short time such as for one or two weeks. This allows family and friends to get some well-earned rest without the worry and stress of the individual being left alone. Daily carer visits can extend to overnight care visits. This is continuous support throughout the night for those who require it and may include help with toileting, and other personal care activities.
