This month, we have been discussing how vital Carers are to our communities and how caring individuals can be part of our team. Today, we want to share with you how our dedicated care team can support you and your loved ones.
With home care services from Heritage Healthcare, we help individuals to remain living at home for longer, surrounded by treasured memories.
- Personal care – supporting with bathing, grooming and dressing, eating and drinking, providing prescribed medication, moving and handling. We understand accepting personal care can be difficult; our care team deliver this level of care with dignity in a discreet manner. We are regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) to provide personal care and ensure our care team are trained to the highest standard to support your unique needs.
- Household and Domestic Help – completing tasks such as dusting, vacuuming, laundry, changing bed sheets and collecting essential items. An extra set of hands to support household tasks is always helpful. As we get older, certain tasks can become harder to complete so our team are on hand to help you keep your home clean and tidy. If you have a beloved pet, they can assist with feeding and walking.
- Companionship – enjoying a catch up on the latest news, reminiscing about treasured memories or getting out into the community. Who doesn’t enjoy a chat over a cuppa with a trusted friend? Not only do our carers help with daily tasks, but they are also a friendly face who you can enjoy a comfortable friendship with. Whether it’s going to your favourite social group, having a browse in the local shops or just sitting in the garden to enjoy the sunshine, our care team are here to keep you company.
We work with our clients, their loved ones and other healthcare professionals to create a bespoke care package based on your needs, wishes and requirements. We support a range of conditions and situations to provide you with independence at home.
Our care plans can be adapted for every personal condition or situation to provide reassurance and consistency. Seeing a loved one living the effects of dementia or Alzheimer’s disease is heartbreaking; our carers are there to deliver high-quality care, ensuring safety within the home of the client and providing advice to family and friends.
Primary caregivers take pride in supporting a loved one, however, they too need to take care of themselves. With our respite care service, we get to know you and learn your established routine so support can continue, allowing a primary caregiver to have well-earned time to themselves.
Our palliative care service supports those with a progressive or terminal condition. We ensure comfort, safety and dignity, allowing loved ones to spend quality time together. Our team works with external healthcare professionals to create a person-centred care plan based on the wishes of a client.
Every individual has their own unique needs and wishes, and our care team work hard to deliver a high-quality service of care. Each Heritage Healthcare carer is trained to the highest standard, with continued opportunities to learn and expand their skills.
