Safe Hands Live in Care at Home in the South West
Stay at Home Care ... a better option than a Care Home
Live in care has become for many people the perfect alternative to moving into residential care.
We can provide a live in companion for you so that you can be supported just the way you require.
What is Live in Care?
We can provide a live in care worker for you, living with you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so that you can be supported just in the way you require.
This 24 hour live in support enables individuals and couples to stay in the comfort of their own home, sustaining their routineness of life, preserving independence whilst being supported in every way required.
Housework, shopping, meal preparation, personal care and anything else that is required; for each person this will be different and we are flexible in the way we work with you.
Friendly Home Visit
After the initial contact, we will visit you in your own home or in hospital, or elsewhere if needed, to asses your needs. One of our head office team will come to you at your convenience, and with you make a list of your requirements.
It will be good to see you in your own home, so that we can help to make you as comfortable as possible during your care. We can view with you your medication list, any disabilities, what you like to eat, where the carer will stay etc. You might have pets which need caring for and that is fine too.
Designing a Care Plan
We will design a care plan and leave you with a special folder which maps out the care plan, available for your chosen carer to use whist working with you. Your comfort and wellbeing is our priority. We will also calculate costs with you and tailor make your package accordingly. Rest assured that we will work with you at your level, listening to any family members you would like involved in this planning.
Having heard your requirements we will send you a number of carers profiles so that you can select the perfect carer for you. The package can be quickly arranged and your care package can be in place within a few days or at your leisure.
We supply a trained professional, nurse led, carer to live with you in your own home. Your Home Companion will be available to care for you,day and night, making sure that all your needs are met, and that you are safe, secure and looked after in just the way you wish for your wellbeing.
We will listen to you throughout your care period, hearing about your needs as they develop, and make adjustments where necessary.
