1. Familiar surroundings
A change of environment can be stressful and take time to adjust. Home care can help you to stay in comfortable and familiar surroundings, in the house you love surrounded by the things you love.
Home care helps you to stay independent by assisting in those areas you need a little bit of help. A care worker may only come to your home to help you get dressed or to take you shopping. Daily living aids like grab rails in your bathroom or mobility equipment like a walking stick or frame can also make it easier for you to get around and maintain your independence.
3. Individualised care
Home care services can be tailored to your individual needs. You may
only need some help with regular household chores to keep your living
spaces clean. Or maybe you are feeling isolated and need help with
social activities. The services you receive will be packaged to meet
your individual circumstances and if your needs increase over time
additional support can be added.
4. Personalised care
Receiving care in your own home means that a care worker can be
focused only on you and not multiple residents at once. Some service
providers allow you to request the same worker to come and help you at
home which builds a more personal connection between you and your care
5. Benefits for the family
Family members are quite often the primary caregivers of older
relatives. Caring for a spouse, parent or family member can be stressful
and overwhelming. Home support services can help ‘lighten the load’ or
ensures your family knows you are in good hands and taken care of.
