Home Instead also provide 24 hour or live-in care and assist in managing medication. Here we investigate just why they could be the perfect solution for you or a loved one.
Why are you different to any other company?
“We pride ourselves on being different in the way we work, the service we provide and the people we employ. We create personalised care plans to deliver the specific outcomes our clients are looking to achieve and we review progress on a regular basis with them. CAREGivers are matched with clients based on interests, hobbies and needs and will be formally introduced to each other. We appreciate the importance of continuity in our relationships and the time it takes to care, so we ensure that clients receive the same CAREGivers on a regular basis.
“We were awarded the Queen’s Award for Innovation in 2016 for the unique nature of the way we work, which includes a minimum of one hour per visit. CAREGivers are selected for their personality and life skills and extensively trained to enable them to provide a wide range of services. All new starters receive Dementia training and many have achieved our City & Guilds accredited qualification that earned us the Princess Royal’s Training award in 2018.
“Our service includes family briefings, regular outings, talks and companionship cafes and our highly-trained office team dedicate time to making regular catch up calls with clients and their families to help manage healthcare appointments and household tasks.”
When do people know they need your services?
“It can be the little things that matter like a reduction in mobility, becoming isolated or lapses in memory which can be signs that it is time to consider getting some support. The first step is often the hardest, especially if the client is reluctant to accept help, that’s why we offer a no obligation consultation to clarify a person’s situation and identify how we can provide the support they need. Our skilled advisors offer confidential help and reassurance and devise a programme that will evolve with the client’s needs.”
Why choose home care?
“There is substantial evidence to suggest that staying in your own home has a positive effect on a person’s long-term wellbeing. Our aim is to enable people to stay in their own home where they feel comfortable and secure. It is a one-to-one service with maximum contact time which ensures that it is a better, more personal experience than residential alternatives and because it is bespoke, it works out much more flexible and affordable
