What is Homecare for Older People?

As you get older you may find everyday tasks become more challenging. It is natural to feel hesitant about seeking support, especially when you are comfortable living in your familiar surroundings. This is why homecare is the ideal solution for many older people. It enables you to maintain your independence and quality of life, providing valuable help where necessary so that you can continue to lead your life the way you want to.

Daily Homecare Duties

The nature of homecare is very flexible depending on the individual. Our care workers can offer support with a number of different everyday tasks and activities. Round-the-clock care is available, specifically at night if you need it.

Some of the more general duties our care workers fulfil can include:

  • Help with household tasks, such as cleaning, cooking, and laundry
  • Help administering or supervising medication
  • Accompaniment on outings and appointments
  • Companionship
  • Access to Additional Support

If your requirements are more complex, our specialist homecare professionals can provide additional support, including:

  • Catheter care (changing bags and monitoring output)
  • Stoma care (changing bags)
  • Assistance with eye or ear drops
  • Nutrition and hydration help
  • Assistance with administering medication if you are unable to take it conventionally
  • Assistance with artificial feeding (PEG)
  • Repositioning during the day or night
  • Supporting you with oxygen and other breathing aids
  • Supporting you after a spinal or brain injury
