Caring for others
Why do we care for others at Great Park Homecare? Because it’s the most natural thing in the world to do. The ability to care comes from empathy; the ability to understand and share the feelings of another. Empathy is a precious moral and social resource because it helps us to form friendships and care for the elderly and those who need support.
Empathy can be defined as the ability to understand the feelings of others – the ability to put yourself into someone else’s shoes, be aware of their emotions and their perspectives.
Caring for others is good for us because it is proven to be hugely beneficial for our well-being. Giving care and support to others leads to reduced stress, increased happiness and a sense of social connectedness. When we are less stressed, happier and better socially integrated, we make better decisions and live a more fulfilling life.
But we know at Great Park Homecare that being a primary caregiver for an ageing person who needs to receive care, is a huge commitment. Caregiving may affect your finances, health or other relationships — or it may just be too difficult emotionally or physically.
Founded on personal experience and empathy, we are a company with a conscience that cares about our clients as if they are our own family. We create a unique and bespoke Care Plan, individual for each client.
The care we offer
We understand that asking for help can sometimes be a difficult thing to do. But at Great Park Homecare, we’re there for clients every step of the way with our varied care options. We clearly outline and discuss all our services when building a flexible home Care Plan focused on what clients wish and need. We will also match carers to an individual’s personality, care needs, preferences and lifestyle. Unlike many providers, we never use care agency staff. Instead, our dedicated team of carers are robustly recruited, trained and developed in-house, by our Management Team.
We work closely with clients and their loved ones to offer personal care, support and companionship, 24 hours a day, in Windsor, Ascot, Maidenhead and the surrounding areas. Personal care covers a whole range of options tailored around a loved one being supported with personal hygiene, incontinence, dressing and maintaining their personal appearance.
This residential care service, means our clients receive the personal care they need in their local community and can stay independent at home.
With a trained, professional and respectful live-in care worker, clients get support with anything and everything they need, including personal hygiene, healthcare support, household tasks and companionship. The care worker will be carefully matched to the person receiving care. Delivering Live In care, can be very rewarding, since, as the professional relationship builds, very close bonds are often forged between carers and their clients, bringing greater levels of trust and peace of mind.
Caring for a family member full-time can be as exhausting as it is rewarding. That’s why we work closely with clients and their loved ones to offer elite respite care. Our services offer family carers a chance to take a break or try out respite care as a potential precursor to live-in care. Whatever a client’s respite care needs, our Great Park Homecare carers can be trusted to be highly trained, discreet, helpful and professional always.
