As we get older sometimes we find things we used to be able to do easily get harder for us. Our health and mobility may decrease or we have a chronic health condition which we are finding harder to manage. Initially we may just need a little additional help to help us remain independent and as time goes on we may need more and more. Here at Extra Care Home Services, we are here to support you as much or as little as you need. All our carers are highly trained and experienced and between them they have over 90 years’ experience in supporting people within their own homes. Our service is flexible and most importantly is about YOU. We value and respect you as an individual and want you to be at the centre of all your care planning. As your care needs may change so we will change with you. We look after our Service Users for many years so they can remain at home and should your health deteriorate we are here to continue to support you right to the end of your life.
The first step is to arrange to visit you in your own home. This will involve no cost to you and there will be no pressure or obligation to buy any of our services. We will discuss with you your individual requirements and the range of Services we are able to provide. We can signpost you to other services that may be of benefit to you as well. We would welcome the presence of a family member or friend at any such meeting.
Examples of care package we can provide:
Mr A is an independent gentleman who likes to get out and about daily. An old back injury means he finds it difficult to reach and wash his legs so we provide a carer once a week to help him with this.
Mrs Y has Vascular Dementia. She used to be very independent within her own home but as her dementia has progressed so her mobility has too and she can no longer “remember” how to walk. We have been with her every “step” of her decline and now provide two carers four times a day to help with all her washing, dressing, continence needs, meal preparation and medication administration as well as providing companionship, collecting her medication , doing her shopping and keeping her home clean and tidy.
Mr T gets in a “muddle” with his tablets and worries. Family members contacted us to see how we could help. Mr T no longer has to worry as carers go in twice a day to check he is ok and help him with all his medication.
