Care at Home
People feel better at home, more at ease with themselves, and this is particularly important later in life when being in familiar surroundings provides comfort, security and stability.
A Live in home care service from Consultus offers many advantages. Our Carers can provide:
Round-the-clock reassurance - the peace of mind of knowing that someone is on-hand should they be needed
Personal care - dressing/undressing, washing, showering, bathing, oral care, hair care, shaving, continence care and toileting
Companionship, social activities and outings
General housework, shopping, cooking, laundry and cleaning
Total freedom of choice - such as choosing when to get up or go to bed
Help with the care of family pets
Freedom from the routine and visiting times that so many care homes impose
Many healthcare professionals agree that their patients recover more quickly in the comfort of their own homes
A Live in Carer or Companion may be booked for a short time; perhaps following a Client's stay in hospital or for respite care at home while their family is away. Often, Live in Carers are requested on a long-term or indefinite basis to provide personal care and help around the house.
Most of our Clients use our services on an ongoing basis, enabling them to continue living happily and safely at home rather than moving into a Residential Care or Nursing Home.
