Quality Care matters

Visiting and supporting an older adult should never be rushed, for that reason, all our visits are never less than an hour.  The people you support deserve lots of time and attention, that time and attention is determined by what they want to achieve from your visit, and together you form a relationship that means you are not only caring for someone, but you are also gaining a friend and companion.  They will trust you and look forward to you coming, the care you deliver will never feel awkward for either of you.

Every one of the older adults we support in their homes, need us for lots of different reasons.  You will provide help and support with anything they struggle to do on their own, or do not wish to be on their own.  A typical day may include

  • Arriving with a smile for an early morning wake up call.
  • Prepare breakfast whilst chatting away!
  • Assisting with morning & evening routine (Washing, dressing, oral care)
  • Prompting to take any medication.
  • Preparing lunch together, taking care of their nutrition is important.
  • Watching their favourite game show together or baking / preparing a meal.
  • Going on outings, hospital visits or visiting the shops.
  • End of the day companionship, hot drink, and chat before bedtime.
