Our Personalised Care and Support Plans are developed to meet the individual needs of the people who use our services. This process provides comfort to family members, carers and friends who may be concerned about their loved one being on their own or being cared for away from home. Poor health, isolation or loneliness are often barriers to a person being able to continue to live at home. Our experienced team offer support with your health, physical and emotional needs. Companionship, delivered with compassion and respect may entail conversation, sharing of activities, and building a relationship that goes beyond a person’s basic needs.
At Health and Care at Home we provide services that enable family members and carers to continue to enjoy their relationship with their loved one without the barriers often associated with a caring role. Utilising our Health, Care and Therapy Services aims to ensure those receiving care feel supported, cared for, safe, happier and healthier and provide family members with reassurance their loved ones needs are being looked after.
Whether your loved one needs support from 1 to 24 hours a day, or on a regular schedule to assist with specific tasks, our care at home service will provide priceless benefits to every member of your family with increased quality of life and peace of mind.
