Illness, age or infirmity can make it difficult to carry out all of the personal care tasks that you once handled with ease. We understand how that can be not only frustrating, but also embarrassing – and of course, nobody wants to lose their independence. But perhaps we can help?
Our qualified carers have years of experience and plenty of training in helping all kinds of people with their personal care. You will find that they are understanding and sympathetic, without being patronising. They will respect your dignity at all times and never make you feel that you are a nuisance. Their objective is to enable you to retain as much independence as possible. They want to help, and they enjoy doing it.
They know that every customer is an individual, with unique personal needs, preferences and values, so they will not intrude into your personal life. All our support arrangements will be completely personalised to your own requirements, involving your family members if you wish, and we will only provide the services that you have specifically asked for in your care and support plan.
Whether you need lots of help every day or just small amounts of help from time-to-time, we can assist you with a wide variety of personal care tasks, including, for example:
Assistance to start your day well
Help to get up, wash, shower or bath, get dressed and have breakfast. That can also include help using the bathroom and toilet, cleaning your teeth, and shaving
Preperation for bed
Help with undressing and getting into bed.
Help with your health
Managing your medication, recognising and discussing your health needs, and making appointments for you with healthcare professionals.
Help with your grooming
Hair washing, drying, and combing, foot care, and personal hygiene management. Also help with choosing and looking after your clothes.
Including clinical waste service.
Help with food
Support with making drinks, menu planning, food shopping, cooking and food preparation.
If your particular need is not listed above, you’ll probably find that we do it anyway – just ask about it.
