Home care visits are a cost-effective way of supporting independence at home by helping you with tasks you are finding difficult.
Good Oaks’ friendly and professional carers prepare meals, administer medication, and help with morning routines. We can visit as little or as often as you like, from one 30 minute visit a week, to around the clock live-in care.
What are Home Care Visits?
Home care visits are designed for people needing assistance with day to day tasks at home, but are still independent enough to stay in their own home, rather than moving to a care home. You can arrange regular care visits at a time which fits into your routine, so our carers can be there when you wake up to help you get dressed, or to help you with making dinner in the evening. Home care visits are designed to be flexible, so whether you need daily or weekly visits, visiting care can be built around your lifestyle.
How Our Home Carers Help;
- Help people with their morning routine
- Prepare meals
- Administer medication for people who can forget or have an impairment
- Provide companionship and support for people living alone
- Help people to regain their independence after a stay in hospital (reablement)
- Provide personal care
- Help people visit the shops, attend doctor’s appointments or meet friends
Safe and Secure Home Care Visits
With Good Oaks Home Care, you can always be sure of a safe, secure and trustworthy service. You and your loved ones will meet with your carer before the care begins, so you know who you will be dealing with. Each carer carries an identity card so that you can easily identify them on arrival. They always knock on your door and announce they are coming in, and they take confidentiality issues such as key safe codes incredibly seriously, so your security will never be breached. We have processes in place which ensure our carers know what to do if they can’t access your house, or if you have had an accident and need medical help.
Arrange a Home Care Visit Today
This first step is to arrange a no-obligation friendly and informal assessment, or request a brochure. We can visit you at home to talk to you about your life, needs and wishes. We listen to your preferences and suggest ways we can help you achieve your goals. Call us today on 01202 757787.
We can help you to decide how often you need care, what level of care you need and will listen to your specific needs to ensure we match you with the right carer. If your care needs require a more regular service, we also offer a live in carers service which we can talk to you about.
