Assistance with Personal Care
Including help getting up, getting dressed, washing, bathing, washing hair, help going to the toilet or emptying commodes, catheter assistance, P.E.G Feeding, getting undressed, going to bed. We can complete bowel/urine movement logs for other professionals if required.
Both at home and out and about. Rather than go to luncheon clubs, some of our service users choose to take a regular support worker out for lunch where they then get one on one conversation and build up a trusting relationship, leading to any worries being addressed more quickly.
Assistance on outings
Either socially or to appointments. We accompany service users to the hospital for their appointments. Our staff can take you out in their own car (having business insurance on their car is a condition of employment) - Please note there is a mileage cost attached to these types of calls.
Assistance with medication and collection of prescriptions
We can either go shopping for you or with you - and help you put it away!
Including laundry, ironing, light cleaning, changing beds and assistance for preparation of family members coming to visit.
We can look after service users at home whilst family members/carers go on their holiday or away for a much needed break. This saves having to go in residential or nursing care.
Home from Hospital
We can help you re-enable yourself on returning home from an operation.
We can sleep over to give you peace of mind or we can provide Sit Ups where our staff will work the night turning individuals regularly or keeping their eye on Service Users who have a condition such as dementia.
End of life care
We have a number of staff trained in this area now with it becoming part of our mandatory training for all staff.
Family / Carer support
We work with many families and Carers, assisting them to rest and offer our support and advice whenever they require it. We have a 24 Hour Emergency Line for support to both staff and our service users.
