What is homecare?

As we grow older, it’s natural that our needs change. Things that once came effortlessly may now be a struggle to complete independently. We may experience a change in physical health or emotional wellbeing – all of which can affect our ability to live safely and happily at home. That’s where homecare comes in. 

Read on to learn more about homecare in Plymouth and how our personalised services can help you live comfortably at home for as long as possible.

Understanding homecare

Homecare is practical, professional and personalised support and companionship provided in the comfort of a person’s home. The goal of home care is to help a person retain their independence and continue enjoying the comforts of home, despite any changing needs. It’s a great option for people who may need an extra hand around the home but want to remain independent instead of moving into residential care. Our flexible home care services work around your already established lifestyle and routines, ensuring you stay in control at all times. 

What does homecare provide? 

We understand that there is no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to care. That’s why we offer personalised home care services, designed to meet your needs, values and preferences. We’ll work with you, your family, and any relevant healthcare providers to create a care plan that works for you. 

That being said, some duties and responsibilities you can expect your dedicated carer to provide include:

  • domestic assistance such as ironing and cleaning
  • help with personal care such as dressing and washing 
  • preparing nutritious meals and doing the cleaning up afterwards 
  • support getting in and out of bed 
  • providing companionship and encouraging social interaction 
  • help with toileting and continence care support
  • assisting with getting safely to and from appointments
  • picking up prescriptions
  • help with shopping or other errands.

The benefits of home care

The key benefit of home care is that it allows you to retain your independence at home without compromising your safety or comfort. This means you get to enjoy the familiarity of home, surrounded by memories and pets, while ensuring your care needs are met. We strive to nurture, stimulate, and enhance your life while always respecting your choices and honouring your dignity. With consistent support and companionship from one of our expert carers, you can stay in the place you know and love best: your home. 

Is homecare right for me?

Choosing to receive home care is a personal decision and may be accompanied by feelings of hesitation, doubt and fear. We understand that allowing a stranger into your home to provide support is a big step and you may worry that the standard of care will be inadequate or that the carer will not be a good match. With a commitment to caring for others with compassion, respect and kindness, you can rest assured that you’re in safe and qualified hands.
