For many older people who are starting to struggle with daily life, being able to continue to live in their own home is key to them feeling independent whilst keeping their dignity and a healthy mind.
Once simple parts of their daily routines such as shopping, dressing and cleaning become more difficult, then it is likely time to consider a home care service such as Pure Heart Homecare.
What Is Home Care?
Home care is when a trained home care assistant visits the home to help with important daily activities. Some elderly people may feel threatened that their independence has been taken away, however it is important for them to understand that a home care assistants' goal is to improve their independence.
Home care is a personalised service that easily slots into everyday life. This allows a person to remain living at home safely and comfortably. Family members can also rest easy knowing that they will still be getting the required support where necessary. The flexible nature of home care means that it can be adapted completely to the needs of the individual and their schedule.
Home care is designed to help with the challenging elements of growing older and to make them easy. This may be through personal support that revolves around helping an individual get washed, dressed and ready for the day. Or perhaps through more practical care and helping with tasks that have become tiresome. Some common examples include shopping, making meals, sorting mail and dealing with household bills and cleaning.
Not Just for Older People
There are options for more specialised home care, for example when somebody is discharged from hospital or has a complex medical need. The goal of our home care is to provide the right support to the people that need it when they need it.
