A lot of people can benefit from a care at home service because it allows them to live within the comfort of their own home while staying safe and holistic. Although this site is primarily about home and garden, which usually is referring to design, home care is a popular service for older people or people people with disabilities or other needs requiring professional assistance.

Home Care Oundle are primarily aimed at older people that would like to stay in their home as they got older, rather than taking a traditional route of staying in a care home, or taking the freedom away from a family member by having them as a carer. Although in some cases a family member can become the full time carer and a home care provider can be hired to provide respite car, this is a temporary arrangement to relieve the family member of caring for them.

What services do home care agencies offer?

Andrea-Cleaning

There are a wide range of services available depend on what is needed, here are just some ideas:

  • Assistance with cleaning and other household chores
  • Assistance with getting up and down the stairs
  • Assistance going to the toilet
  • Assistance getting up in the morning and going to bed
  • Shopping – Either purchasing it for you or taking you out
  • And various other personal assistant activities

They can provide this in a variety of different ways…

Home Care

Standard home care where you create an agreement for how long you will need a carer and how often.

Live in Care

Live in Care Oundle allows a carer to live in your home with you, for a chosen number of days per week to give you a full time carer and assistant.

Respite Care

As mentioned earlier, respite care gives the main carer (such as a family member) a temporary break from the care.

Also… End of Life Care, Dementia Care, and Re-Enablement

I recommend researching all of these services and finding the best local one for the specific service you’re looking for. Some providers will offer all of these services, others not. If you look for home care market deeping suppliers or home care uppingham providers, you’ll undoubtedly come across a lot of companies.
