Our at home care services include elderly care and elderly home help care programmes providing loved ones with the help they need to go about their daily activities. General home help and specific home help for the elderly are needed at different stages by our loved ones. Our skilled staff are highly trained and experienced so that they can provide your loved ones with the help they need, when they need it. At Communicare, we believe that everyone has the right to maintain their dignity and independence and to continue to enjoy as full and active a lifestyle as possible, whatever their needs.
The following information will give you an indication of the types of personal care services we can provide for your loved one. This list is not intended to be exhaustive – any and all services you may require can be discussed, as we pride ourselves on taking a person-centred, rather than task-based approach to client care.
Staying clean and fresh is essential to an individual’s sense of well-being.
Our nursing and care staff understand the private and sensitive nature of these activities and will strive to give you all the help you need.
Staying active is a vital part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle, with benefits ranging from improved digestion and sleeping patterns, to stress relief and increased mental alertness. For those with health problem or injuries, or those recovering from an operation, being placed in the correct position when at rest helps to eliminate pressure sores and muscle stiffening.
As food is such an important part of our daily lives, losing the ability to feed oneself can often prove frustrating and humiliating for a loved one. Our staff will make every effort to ensure that mealtimes are relaxing and fun elements of your day.
Our staff can remind you when to take your prescribed medication and help you to open the container or packet, at your request.
Taking proper care of your skin and dental hygiene is an essential element of your personal care.
Our dedicated nursing and care staff can help with everything from buttoning buttons, tying shoelaces and knotting ties, to washing and combing your hair and helping you to choose an outfit.
