A quick look at a testimonial from the father of one of our young clients, who was born with serious health problems, shows just how stressful caring for a sick child can be. A number of our carers have undergone a training programme in a major Dublin hospital which has equipped them to support parents in dealing with tracheostomy tubing, feeding and general care for these young people.
Performing routine everyday tasks can be difficult or even physically impossible for those recovering from serious illness or convalescing after an operation. Our post-operative carers can take a weight off your shoulders by providing you with all the help you need to get on with your daily activities until you’re back to your old self again.
The final weeks and months in the life of a terminally ill patient are extremely challenging, emotional and stressful for the individual, their family members and friends. Palliative care focuses on the treatment of pain and other problems, integrating the physical, psycho-social and spiritual needs of the patient. Our Carers will sensitively ensure that your loved one is as comfortable as possible, whilst providing much-needed support and assistance for your family, ensuring that both you and your loved one can make the most of the precious time remaining.
One of the greatest fears faced by older people and their families is that of diminished mental capacity. Alzheimer’s disease, the most common form of dementia, gradually deprives sufferers of their memory, personality and ability to perform previously straight-forward activities of daily living. Our clients report that the burden of caring for a loved one suffering from Alzheimer’s can be overwhelming at times.
Our staff has extensive experience of working with people with physical and intellectual disabilities. We have worked with clients with Down’s syndrome, spinal injuries, Motor Neurone Disease, Huntington’s disease, Parkinson’s and memory loss. Our staff has also worked with clients experiencing a variety of mental health problems, from paranoid schizophrenia to acquired brain injuries.
