Home care support offers a one-to-one, hands-on service for you or your loved ones. This service provides the best possible care in the comfort of your own home.
Family members may not always be able to assist their loved ones with personal care. Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, dementia or a stroke can leave people with a limited capacity to do things for themselves, respite care may also be needed after coming out of hospital. This is where live in support steps in, it aims at assisting the elderly who need help or simply cannot perform day-to-day tasks themselves anymore.
Home support does always have to be full time or permanent.
Some are fortunate to have family members that can help whenever needed, however, there will be times when those family members cannot be there and it’s during these times where live in support can be used.
You stipulate the period that the carer is needed for; no long-term contracts are necessary which offers flexibility.
You also get to decide how long each day a carer is needed for, it could be for a few hours or for the whole day – you decide what suits your needs and budget the best.
Personal home care services
At Golden Care Agency, we offer a 24 hour personal, home care service.
We know that leaving your home is the last thing you want to do. At nursing homes, you are constantly being cared for by a number of different carers. Using live in support enables you to have one carer who is able to care for your specific needs and provide personal touches to your life.
Carers will provide assistance with personal care, such as bathing, dressing, grooming as well as with household tasks like cooking, cleaning and shopping. Carers provide their clients with company and help maintain their overall well-being.
Home care support is more affordable than some nursing homes where you aren’t always necessarily an individual, but just another patient needing care like everyone else.
Golden Care Agency aims at making sure you can continue your standard of living, at home surrounded by the things which you cherish.
