Planning Home Care

Consideration of care only crops up when you need it. Until you need it, it isn’t on your horizon. But when you need care, it can be an urgent requirement.

We have 30 years experience in providing home care and home care plans for all possible scenarios, so let us guide you.

Providing care in the home requires teamwork. We work closely with you (and possibly your family members or friends) as well as medical professionals and local communication services.  Our vetted referenced and trained carers will follow a care plan tailored for you.
Our objective is to provide appropriate care for you so you can live in your own home, for as long as possible.
 

Care Needs

Immediate Care

Phone us or come in for a confidential chat. In the first instance, you will speak with Anne Marks. Anne is Client Services Manager and has been with us since the very beginning, 30 years ago. With vast experience of homecare, coupled with a warm and empathic personality, you can trust Anne to answer all your preliminary questions and guide you through this sensitive area.

Future Care Planning

Don’t wait until it’s too late. You might not need home help now but none of us know what the future brings.

In the same way, you might prepare your will, a living will or even your funeral arrangements, we offer an advisory service on planning care for your future.

An exploratory visit on your future care needs takes 1 hour and costs €99.

How We Work

Care Assessment

Nurse Manager Daviga Karunanithi, and Client Co-ordinator Mary Tuffy will visit your home to carry out a care assessment with the objective of formulating a home care plan.

A care assessment simply means that your home will be checked by our nurses to ensure it is suitable for your needs. Recommendations to make it safe for you might include installing grab bars in a bathroom if you have just come out of hospital for example. The outcome of a care assessment is a care plan tailored to your needs.

Care Plan

A care plan is the guideline for our carers to follow to ensure your needs are met. When carers come to your home to assist you, they will follow your care plan. Every client has very different needs, whether it's a care plan for elderly with dementia or for a respite break, each care plan is individual.

Topics typically detailed in a care plan include:

  • Medical conditions or ailments
  • Mobility : helping clients be active where possible
  • Sleeping Patterns
  • Toileting: being clean and comfortable is essential for dignity as well as hygiene
  • Diet : meal preparation and serving
  • Medication Prompts : please note carers may only remind you to take your medication
  • Interests and hobbies : care is about companionship too!

Daily and Weekly Planning of Your Care

You will have a dedicated Client Administrator. Your Client Administrator will assign the most compatible carers to you, and is responsible for scheduling their visits, based on your plan.

Half of our team of Client Administrators have worked with us for 14 years! The newest team members have been with us for a minimum of 3 years.

Client Administrators are extremely well trained, have a lot of experience, and understand the sensitivities and importance of ensuring your exact care needs are met with clearn communications.

Care Monitoring

Our Nurse Manager and Client Co-ordinator will regularly visit you in your home to assess if your care plan needs updating. They will look out for any factors that might have changed since their last visit and since the first care plan was drafted. They will also seek feedback on your relationship with your carer to ensure compatibility and satisfaction.

Multi-Disciplinary Team (MDT) Meetings

MDT meetings are where public and private service providers work together.

Upon invitation, our nurses attend case meetings with medical professionals and community services (if involved) to discuss clients with the objective of ensuring they are receiving the correct and best care and supports from the entire team.

Peace of Mind

Our motto is that "we care for others as we would like to be cared for ourselves". We are here to support you. We can help you.

Don’t hesitate to contact us for any advice or help. We are happy to help you.

Special thanks to you for finding us Sue, who became a personal friend and cheered my mother up so nicely and was such a kind companion to her. We always felt happy to leave her in charge, and we always felt on our return that *Dorothy was the better for her visits.
