Who needs visiting care?
For people who need personal care
A majority of people we look after are in need of personal care and support. Just tell us what you need and we’ll offer assistance, whether you need complete personal care or you just need the safety and comfort of knowing that someone is there for you, even if it is for a short time.
You can still do a lot of things, and we are here to encourage and motivate you to do them while also recognizing that you need help in specific areas to truly live the way you want. Our help includes laundry, personal hygiene, nutrition, dressing, makeup and hair – it all depends on what you need.
We are here to serve your needs and always act according to your wishes at Cedars Home Care. Our visiting times are also flexible, they can range from hourly visits a week to a couple of visits throughout the day, all the way to live-in care. Depending on your needs, we can increase and even lessen our level of support.
Prevention of falls in-home support
We at Cedars Home Care believe that preemptive action is better than reactive action. A majority of our clients and loved ones are anxious about falling, especially when one lives alone. They need reassurance and having someone stop by once every hour does a lot to alleviate these concerns. And during the visit, the person can even help you out with everyday activities that can result in a fall should you attempt to do them yourself. Having a caretaker with you also means that should you fall, they will spring into action and get you the help you need.
Falls come with implications and can cause long-term damage, which is why they cause so much panic, especially when one is already delicate. Falls have the capability to minimize independence, shatter confidence and can lead to isolation since many don’t want to be a burden to their loved ones.
Proving support for everyday home activities
Sometimes, you can find that you are having difficulties keeping up with your daily activities at home. If you need support with housekeeping and physically-demanding tasks around the house, a visiting caretaker is the best option for you.
You don’t have to deal with these activities yourself; let us take care of them while you do other things. Our home visiting care can provide you with the support you need, so contact us now.
Switching to professional care from family care
Sometimes, your needs can increase while you are under the care of family and friends. Many clients usually approach us at this point in their lives to arrange for care.
Two out of five caretakers that are unpaid are not paying for their own medical care in order to support their loved ones, according to a survey conducted by Carers Week. This is an imbalance and our care can make a difference. On top of that, while we are providing you with the support you need, your family can be involved in the process as well.
One of the major benefits that our visiting care provides is that it allows family members to take a breather and recharge themselves. Our visits range from short and frequent to longer ones; they can even go on for an entire afternoon or night. We even have temporary respite care with live-in caretakers should you need it.
As soon as you get in touch, we’ll assist you in finding a home care option that is suitable for you and your loved ones. Give us a call now and find out all you need to know.
Post-hospital discharge at-home care
When a hospital discharge requires that there should be a suitable level of support and care set up at home, the responsibility usually falls on family members.
We definitely have a care professional in your area that can spring into action at a moments notice to make the necessary arrangements for visiting care to assist with your recovery since we have branches all over the country. They can make sure that your return home is not only quick but also as safe as possible. Our caretaker will liaise with other care specialists as well, including the discharge team at the hospital.
A member of our team of visiting caretakers, who is a Care Quality Commission-certified specialist, will work in conjunction with occupational therapists and district nurses during this time when your health is a delicate matter. We even help with making sure that your discharge from the hospital is smooth by setting up any equipment and modifications you may need at home in place.
Give us a call now and we can have a chat about how we can assist with the hospital discharge for you or a family member or friend.
In-home dementia care
We understand the peculiarities of staying with and caring for someone that has dementia after decades of offering home care.
You can rest assured knowing that the suitable dementia care is being provided from home when you select care from Cedars Home Care. We offer visiting caretakers that pay attention to your situation-specific needs, can give you the guidance, peace of mind and care you require. Plus, they have a great deal knowledge about your condition.
Cedars Home Care in collaboration with Dementia UK has come up with special resources to assist both families and caretakers to engage people staying with dementia and transition them into the most ideal living situation. Research has shown that visual prompts are more effective than using words by themselves, and we have designed a dementia toolkit around this research. It is safe to use at home and includes flashcards, story work and activity planners.
It can be hard finding out that your loved one who used to be so strong and independent can no longer take care of themselves completely. However, Cedars Home Care has seen tremendous success in supporting clients who have been afflicted with various forms of dementia, including Alzheimer’s, to go on staying comfortably at home, even though over half of them have experienced some type of memory loss.
When caring for a person suffering from dementia, familiar surroundings, such as the home, and regularity in routines are key components. Need extra support? Contact us now and find out how our specialist dementia caretakers can provide what you need.
Handling the loss of confidence
When you become incapable of doing daily activities you used to do with ease, your confidence can take a major hit. To empower you and motivate you to be independent again, our caretakers take your expectations and requirements and make them a big part of the support they provide.
As you gain confidence we can reduce the level of care we provide. You will work together with our caretakers, who will give you the additional care and support required, to help you get back your confidence. This can include staying with you overnight to handle your nightly needs, which is reassuring to you because you know someone is with you at all times.
We are available round-the-clock to discuss and find a home care option that is suitable for you. We can call you if you request a callback or you can reach us on 0300 124 5231.
