We are privileged to help individuals and couples with all the care and support services that they need to continue living in a way that suits them and their families.
We will support you daily within your own home and devise the perfect way of support to suit you; we will visit you at home prior to your care taking place to ensure we send someone you are compatible with. We understand the importance of continuity of care, so our support workers usually work for at least four weeks at a time, before taking a short break, which means that they really get to know you as a person and also what makes you feel comfortable and secure. Our live in care workers support hundreds of elderly people, caring for them and enabling them to stay independent, assisting them with their daily routine. As needs and interests change our care staff will adapt the support to what is required. They will not take over things that you can and want to do yourself. Our live-in carers will undertake, within reason, whatever you and your family want and need them to help with.
Sunshine Care provides 24 hour care in your local area. We are able to supply you with a care support worker or Personal Assistant to live with you in your home. This companionship will keep you independent and mentally stimulated, especially if you choose a live in Carer who will stay with you a number of weeks.
Continuity of care is very important to us!
