Many people at home avail of care options for a variety of reasons.
Perhaps your family members work fulltime and cannot visit you during certain times. Perhaps they have emigrated and live abroad ?
You may have been widowed. Or your social circle may have shrunk.
Perhaps your mobility has changed and you need assistance with walking or light household duties.
You want to live in your own home. You don’t want or don’t need a nursing home.
Whatever the reason, we are here to help.
Caring for older people in their own home can take any shape or form of your choosing. Choose care visits as and when you want. Perhaps you want part-time visits regularly ? If circumstances call for it, home care might also take the form of sit-up nights or live in care.
Consider assistance from a carer for companionship for walks or shopping, Careers can help with light housework and meal preparation.
Choose what care assistance you would like, and when you like it. If your needs change, you can change your care plan. There is no commitment and no lock-in contract.
Carer’s first priorities to ensure older people are safe and comfortable at home are:
After these priority areas are checked, and time permitting, carers will clean and tidy your personal space, usually the bedroom and kitchen. (Note this duty only extends to your needs not those of other family members or other residents in the house).
Carers are also trained in communications skills. They are mindful that some of their clients may not have much social contact - and perhaps none at all since their last visit - and so will chat and provide companionship.

Thank you for the sympathetic hearing you gave me when I approached you first, and thanks also to everyone at Private HomeCare for the professional and supportive way they interacted at all times. The carers were most kind and helpful, and there is no way we could have managed without their careful and sensitive handling of the situation.
