Types of home care during coronavirus
Whether you require low level care or specialist live-in care as an alternative to a residential care home we are here to help. Our local care management team will work with you and your family efficiently to assess your care needs and establish a tailored care package, all of which can be completed at short notice if required.
We employ exceptional home carers all of whom undertake a thorough recruitment process and receive market leading training and support from our local offices. Our professional carers follow clear policies to ensure your safety including additional infection control measures during the coronavirus outbreak. You can read more about these here.
Our local care management team provides 24/7 support to our carers and the families we support, and we are proud that our service is underpinned by basic principles such as continuity of carer, introductions before care commences, minimum visits of 1 hour and regular face-to-face input from our local office.
Hourly visiting care is a flexible service ranging from 1 hour to 24 hours per day, 7 days a week, including bank holidays. It also includes sleepover night care and waking night care. Our professional hourly carers can help with errands or shopping because you are self-isolating and unable to leave the home, or we can pop in to deliver medicines or help with domestics. You may also require additional help with daily activities such as personal care or mobility care because you are unable to receive support from family due to social distancing restrictions.
Live-in care gives elderly people and elderly couples the peace of mind that 24 hour care is on hand from a trained carer to help with their daily life. This includes specialist support with personal care, medication management, mobility or complex conditions such as dementia care, Parkinson’s care or post stroke care. Live-in care is considered a particularly safe option during the coronavirus outbreak since live-in care is provided by the same carer residing in your home on a weekly basis. 24-hour can be uniquely tailored to the needs of each family with a plan of care developed around your daily routines and the outcomes you wish to achieve. Live-in care is provided by two professional, trained carers who will typically rotate on a 1 or 2 week shift pattern, or longer where preferred. They are matched to your needs and 24/7 support is provided by our local care management teams based in Yorkshire and Cheshire.
