Types of Care
You can have a Personal Assistant support you throughout the day, starting from 1 hour per day. They can support with Personal Care, meal preparation, light housework, companionship and more according to your needs.
Having day care support can enable the recipient of the care to be supported in their daily activities in their own home, whilst also providing respite for the rest of the family/main caregivers.
Overnight care comes in two forms: wake nights and sleep nights.
Wake nights – your Personal Assistant will be awake and on-hand to support with any needs during the night, for example toileting, mobility, fluids and hydration, emotional support and more according to your needs.
Sleep nights – this means your Personal Assistant will be asleep in their room, and ‘on-call’ to be woken for support up to 2 times per night. It is a cheaper option; however, it is important to note that if your Personal Assistant is woken more than 2 times in a night, this will be paid at a wake night rate.
We love some me time as much as the next person and we understand the huge benefits that recharging the batteries can have. Supporting a family member can be hard and time consuming, respite support can be both short term and longer, just a morning or a couple of weeks allowing you a much-needed break.
Our Personal Assistants range in experience and qualifications, we match you with Personal Assistants who are trained, experienced and qualified in specialist health conditions such as dementia, Parkinson’s and learning disabilities; the list is not exhaustive, and we will always source you a Personal Assistant with your required experience to ensure capability in their role in supporting you and/or your loved one.
Making decisions about how best your needs can be met and where that can be, especially as these conversations may well be about leaving your home, can be upsetting and daunting, but for many there are options where you can still live independently in the comfort and safety of your own home but gives you peace of mind that there is always a familiar face around to help you whenever you need it.
Live-in care is a practical and affordable alternative to moving into a residential home.
We can arrange one of our superb Personal Assistants, who are all fully trained and DBS checked, to live with you in your home to provide care and companionship based upon your needs, preferences, expectations and wishes. We will ensure you have a regular team of Personal Assistants who will work on rotation which could be anything from 1-12 weeks to allow them some time to rest so that they are able to give you the highest quality of care.
It’s important to remember that Live-in care is not the same as 24-hour care; your Personal Assistant will be on standby overnight should you need them and their routines will match yours fully in order to accommodate your needs and expectations.
