home care

We believe homecare is not just about help and support at home, it’s also about promoting independence – enabling individuals to maintain health, wellbeing and the fulfilling lifestyle they choose. That’s why we work closely alongside service-users, caregivers and families to provide a flexible service that meets the needs of each and every one of our customers.

Respite Care:

Caring for a loved one can be very demanding both physically and mentally, we also recognise that this is much more than simply handling the day-to-day tasks.  Sometimes when caring extends for long periods of time, this can bring additional challenges and generate some emotional strain.

Our respite care offers a trusted and fully trained carer to step in to provide the care required and to give the existing carers and family an opportunity to have a break and recharge the battery.

Our respite care can be provided either as:

  • Visiting care – this means extra support is provided for a few hours each day or each week on a schedule to suit
  • Live-in care – this means where the carer actually lives in your house and offers support and company around the clock

A break from caring for someone can last anything from a few days to several weeks or more. Everyone’s situation is different.

Typically the daily tasks that our carers provide include but are not limited to the following:

  • Administering medication
  • Nursing activities such as catheter or continence support
  • Mobility support, helping your loved one move around the house
  • Ongoing companionship and emotional support
  • Helping you with daily activities suchas cooking meals, food shopping, caring for pets
  • Housekeeping, including washing and drying clothes
  • Accompanying you on visits and trips out of the house
  • Whatever your circumstances, we can help by providing respite care for as long as you need, on a basis that suits you and your loved ones.

We understand that acknowledging and admitting care is needed can be daunting. Let us put your mind at ease.
