Home Care in York
Our live in care in York service for elderly people offers a genuine alternative to moving into a care home or nursing home in the York area. The support we provide can involve anything from low level companionship, through to more advanced care for specialist needs such as dementia, Parkinson’s, returning home from hospital, mobility care or help with medications. There are many benefits for elderly people who choose to remain in their own homes with professional care on-hand including: care tailored to your individual needs; familiar, comfortable living environment; family and friends more accessible; one-to-one support for specialist conditions; care can be provided alongside health professionals (e.g. a hospital Discharge Team, occupational therapists, social services, doctors and District Nurses).
Live-In Home Care in York
Live in care in York is typically provided by a team of two professional home carers who will rotate on a week on / off basis. This ensures that our clients receive genuine continuity of care and our staff can work safely with sufficient rest. All of our carers are fully employed by us, unlike a live-in care introductory agency, meaning that we take full responsibility for assessing, training and supporting our team. All of our staff undergo a thorough recruitment process including interviews, Enhanced DBS criminal record checks, employment and personal references. They also attend our comprehensive in-house induction training course, including shadowing existing members of our care team, before entering onto our mentoring and supervision programme.
All of our clients, the families we support and our carers are provided with 24/7 support and advice from our Care Management Team based in Harrogate. This includes weekly support visits in the client’s home, regular contact with the family and checks with the client’s GP. This is a key way we separate ourselves from some of the larger national providers of live-in care in the UK.
Local, Qualified Home Carers in York
Before our live-in care service commences we seek to undertake a full assessment of care needs with the client and their family. We then agree a Care Plan to ensure that the care is tailored to your personal needs and this is then monitored regularly. We place great importance on matching our carers to our clients according to things such as personality, interests and skills, and you carer is always introduced to you and your family before care begins.
