Home care in Yorkshire
Carefound Home Care specialises in providing highly personalised care at home to older people enabling clients to continue to live in the comfort of their own home with expert, one-to-one support on-hand. Our carers are extensively vetted and trained by our local care management team and can provide anything from basic domestic help, companionship, medication help through to personal care. Our staff are also specially trained in supporting complex conditions such as dementia, Parkinson’s, stroke care and end-of-life care. Our support is available on both a permanent or short-term respite basis and we offer unrivalled levels of local support and input to our staff and the families we care for.
Hourly home care in Yorkshire
Hourly home care in Yorkshire is a fully flexible care option involving anything from 1 hour upwards, available 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Hourly home care can also include sleepover night care or waking night care. Our care model is based around companionship and continuity, whilst your carer is specially trained to provide personal care, medication help, mobility care and to support specialist conditions such as dementia.
Live-in care in Yorkshire
The cost of live-in care is similar to that of a residential care home or nursing home in Yorkshire, however it enables elderly people to retain the security and familiarity of their own home. Our clients are supported by two trained live-in carers who typically rotate on a one week on / off basis, ensuring that you are able to build relationships and understanding. Our live-in carers are fully supported and monitored by our local care management team in Harrogate, which includes weekly support visits to ensure the care package is working well and continuously improving the well-being of our clients. Live-in care is available as a long-term service or on a short-term respite basis to provide a break to a carer or to enable an older person to get used to the support.
Local, qualified carers in Yorkshire
Our home care services are managed from our local office which is based in Harrogate, Yorkshire. This ensures that we are able to maintain exceptional levels of communication with and support for our carers, our clients and their families. It also enables us to meet the needs of our clients should they change over time through effective communication and regular reviews, thereby maximising their well-being and independence to the greatest extent possible.
We place a huge emphasis on recruiting the right people into our team, all of whom undergo a comprehensive recruitment and selection process including interviews, reference checks and an Enhanced Criminal Record Check from the Disclosure and Barring Service. Our carers also carry out extensive induction training which includes specialist training such as medication management, dementia care and Alzheimer’s care through our collaboration with the Contented Dementia Trust, and Parkinson’s care through our work with Parkinson’s UK. We do not use agency staff – we fully employ all of our staff and take responsibility for supporting them and the quality of the care they deliver. They are also carefully matched to clients and our local care management team are on-hand to ensure that you are happy with our care service and that the care is meeting your needs.
