Could you help Mary*?

Mary is 80 years old and has started to struggle with little things that so many of us find simple. She might struggle to follow simple steps such as following a recipe when cooking a meal or sometimes forgetting to have a wash, she might also get muddled with peoples’ names. However, she does love to sing, and music seems to always cheer her up and remind her of special memories. She can get lonely from time to time though, and she needs a bit more help round the house. Could you be the person to make a difference to Mary? 

As a Care Assistant & Home Helper, you will carefully be matched to older adults in your local community, supporting them to remain independent both in their own home and by keeping them active in the local community. We only do a minimum of 1-hour visits, so you are never rushed. You would always see the same clients too. This would include any of the following:

  • Assisting with daily routine including mornings, lunchtimes, and evenings.
  • Assisting with personal care where required.
  • Prompting to take any medications.
  • Taking clients out shopping or attending local groups, events, or appointments.
  • Preparing meals and light household duties.
  • Being someone, they can rely on.

About Us

    Have you ever thought about a career in care?

    Have you ever thought I could not do that?  Well, what if you can?

     

    You could care.

    May* is 98 and lost her husband some 25 years ago, and she has always been independent. She regularly had her hair shampooed and set every Thursday, did her shopping every Friday and watched Challenge TV on repeat. When May started to show signs of early onset Dementia her family started noticing small things at first, small things that concerned them, she was not doing the things she used to do.  There was dust in the bath suggesting she was not bathing; the bed had not been slept in suggesting she was not going to bed at night, and she had also stopped watching TV over fear of using the electric. So, the family called us. Here is what we do for May:

    • We visit May in the Mornings, Lunchtimes & Evenings – May has two regular Companions.
    • We cook breakfast for her, she loves porridge every morning.
    • We shower May three times a week, she can do most of it herself, but we stay close by.
    • May likes a cooked dinner, in fact she has gained weight since we started caring for her, she will say she does not eat much but this is not true at all!
    • Because we cannot go out at the moment, on an afternoon, we watch Challenge TV and sometimes bake cakes, she loves making plate pies (Her late husband loved them).
    • On an evening, we provide much needed companionship before bed, make sure any medication has been taken and help her get undressed. May loves to read so we always make sure she is happy and settled before we leave for the evening.

    Who are we?

    We are a unique Award-Winning Provider of Companionship Led Care. When we say Companionship led care, this is because every one of our Care Assistant & Dementia Friend are carefully matched so that the care provided is never awkward, you are more like a friend and an extension of their own family.  It is also companionship led because we do so much more than just pop in, all our visits are a minimum of an hour, meaning we not only ensure that their care needs are met we also enjoy the time we spend together.
