How can homecare and family support fit together?

As we grow older, our needs and abilities naturally change. Things that once came easily may now require extra effort. For example, poor eyesight or arthritis can make cooking difficult or even dangerous. Or perhaps it’s hard to make the weekly trip to the supermarket to pick up groceries. 

That’s where we come in. 

We provide homecare in Romford, Clacton on Sea, Colchester and surrounding areas to support you and your family in whatever way works for you. Because we understand that everyone has different needs and wants, our services are completely tailored to you. Read on to learn more about our homecare services and how we seamlessly support you and your family at home. 

What is homecare?

Our view on homecare is that it’s ‘whatever you need it to be’. We don’t believe in a ‘one size fits all’ solution because we understand that every person has their unique needs, desires and lifestyle preferences. That said, our home care services are centred around providing extra care, support, and companionship at home so that you can live safely and comfortably in the place you know and love best. 

The type of practical and professional support we provide can look different for everyone. As long as you and your family feel happy, safe, and supported without feeling like you’ve lost control and choice over your life, we’re doing our job. 

Why would I want homecare? 

Growing older might mean that the daily tasks and activities we once did without even thinking now require extra effort, concentration and time. It might also mean that we have aches and pains in places we didn’t have before. Maybe our social circles have become smaller or mobility issues keep us more homebound than we’d like. Or maybe, we simply can’t be bothered cleaning the house every day because we’ve done it for the past fifty years. All of these are reasons why a person might want support from home care. 

Personalised care designed to fit your life 

Our bespoke homecare services are tailored completely to your and your needs. This means we can offer as little or as much support as you need. If your needs change as times go by, we’ll adjust our support accordingly. We’ll also schedule our visits around your schedule and routine. Some of the areas we can provide support in include:

  • Personal care – support with washing, dressing, brushing hair, shaving, getting up and going to bed
  • continence care – help going to the bathroom
  • medication – picking up prescriptions or providing gentle reminders to take medication
  • cooking – doing the weekly shop and preparing nutritious meals 
  • light housework – washing, cleaning, laundry, and tidying up
  • companionship – popping in for chat and cuppa, being a listening ear, engaging in your favourite hobbies or accompanying you on trips or to appointments.
