  • Respite services

    Many people don’t need long term care as they have the support of their family and friends.

    But there may be times when this support is not available such as when a family member becomes ill or is going away on holiday. It maybe that they just need a few days rest to recharge their batteries. We can provide staff that are able to support you in the same way that your family and friends do. You may need a daily visit to help with personal care and/or domestic support or you may need someone to stay with you while they are away. Any of our services can be provided for short periods of time that suit your individual needs.

     
  • Live-in care

    Live-in care involves a carer living in the home of the person requiring care, enabling them to stay in their own home.

    The carer’s role is to provide the meals of the client’s choice, do the shopping and laundry, as well as help with personal care needs such as bathing, washing, and dressing, if required.

    There are no more worries about being alone at night, as the carer is there should the client need them. Family and friends can continue to visit in the usual way, and if the person cared for is still able to go out, the carer will take them on outings, such as to the shops or to visit friends. We believe in supporting those who need care to retain as much independence as possible and to remain active. The carer’s role is to build on their strengths in order to promote the well-being of their client.

     
  • Companionship

    Throughout all of our services one of the most important things that our staff provide is companionship to the people that we care for.
    Companionship

    It can often be that the only person that some of our clients see that day are the care staff that visit them. You may not need any of the other services that we offer, all you want is to spend some time with someone. We can provide this to you with a regular member of staff that visits you each week for a minimum of an hour or for several hours whichever you prefer. This may enable you to visit friends and family or enjoy a day out with someone to talk to. We try to provide staff that have similar interests and personality so that you can build a relationship based on common interests.
