As each year progresses and the days become longer and brighter, you may be thinking about decluttering, recycling or putting your tax affairs in order (slightly less exciting). The time comes when there can be no more procrastination so you can get on with your daily routine and feel energised and efficient. It creates an amazingly positive mindset.
Your loved one may also feel they need some help to organise their affairs and home. Older people, people requiring dementia care, personal care, and those at risk of falling may especially need help with their home, health or medical needs.
An untidy or unclean home can seriously compromise the quality of life in the long term. To this end, it may also be a time for considering home care services that involve undertaking light housekeeping tasks such as washing dishes, cleaning, laundry and making beds.
Who are Home Care Services for?
Home services can benefit anyone who needs extra help with everyday living.
Your loved one may need support because they have a cognitive impairment, such as dementia. Because they find it harder to do the things needed for everyday living, home services can be a huge help.
Professionally trained home carers can assist wash clothes, cooking regular meals, giving reminders to take medication and keeping the house clean and tidy. The costs of being cared for at home are worth every penny, giving both the person and their families peace of mind and reassurance.
How Home Care Services Help You
Home services can transform people’s quality of life. When older people receive support in their own home, it reduces their need to go into a care home in the long term which can be much more costly. Therefore, senior persons can stay safely in their familiar surroundings of people and belongings. For people with dementia, this can hugely improve their quality of life and can be a weight off the mind of their family and friends.
Additionally, home services allow older people to retain their independence. Thanks to adult care support such as assistive technology, telecare services, home care, home health care, and occupational therapist support, a person can independently live well into their senior years. Visiting care workers, domiciliary care or a live-in carer may also support people by preparing meals and providing personal care.
There are so many benefits of home care, so many care options and levels of care and peace of mind. In-home care cannot be underestimated. Our carefully created person-centred Care Plans are second to none, focusing on the unique needs of each client. This is most different and most often preferable to being in a nursing home.
