Our Home Care Service
Raye is an hourly carer at Carefound Home Care and supports Rose at home.
“As Rose’s carer, my role is to help maintain the quality of her life in her own home. The training and learning I have carried out is key to this, which has provided me with a knowledge and understanding of Motor Neurone Disease (MND) and how to best manage its physical, mental and emotional effects. This has included direct training from our local representatives of the MND Association and a specialist introductory course developed by the MND Association and The University of Northampton.”
“At Carefound Home Care we also recognise the paramount importance of continuity of care. It is this that has enabled me to establish and build a rapport with Rose, her family and other key professionals. Continuity also enables us to monitor the outcomes of our care. We can then regularly review Rose’s personalised Care Plan and adapt it to respond to changing needs.”
“The most fulfilling and satisfying aspect of looking after Rose is knowing that I am a cog in a big wheel that is assisting her to live in her own home with this disease. It means so much to her. I was recently delighted to celebrate Rose’s 80th Birthday with her and we all wish her a wonderful 80th year.”
“I was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease (MND) 18 months ago and I struggle to wash and dress myself. Carefound Home Care have helped me tremendously as they come and shower and dress me. Raye is my carer and we have a very good relationship, I look forward to her coming as she also cheers me up and we have a giggle. I was 80 recently and Raye came to my birthday party which was lovely of her. Thank you to Raye and all the staff at Carefound Home Care for their wonderful service.”
