Understand and preparing for homecare

Care is not always the easiest thing to talk about. Deciding on the right care needs discussion and consideration between you and your family. Perhaps you live away and you have started to notice that your Mum is struggling since the loss of your Dad.

What is home care?

Quite simply it’s a package of support that allows you or a loved one to stay living in your own home. You may just need company, or someone to clean the house and cook meals for you or trips into the community to go shopping or visit friends.

Home care is a great solution for you if you are needing extra help, but want to remain living independently, in the familiar surroundings of your own home. It provides relief to you and your family members, when everyone is settled and supported by a wonderful CAREPal from Happiest at Home.

At Happiest at Home, we tailor our range of services to suit your individual needs from a few hours per week up to a full live-in care package. We also match our CAREPal to the person who needs the support, to ensure that they get along and are able to build a long term and trusted relationship.

Preparing for home care

Talking about care for the first time in someone’s life care be daunting for the person who needs the help and the immediate family. However, it is very important to have an open discussion so that the persons needs are fully understood and assessed. The discussion is usually triggered by an event such as a fall, bereavement or signs of struggling to do tasks that once were not a problem. Starting small with just a few hours per week can give you the extra help needed and avoid you or a loved one having to go into a residential home. The continuity of care that we will provide, will help monitor your loved ones health to give you peace of mind that any changes will be spotted.
