There can be many difficult decisions to make when it comes to all the different types of care and support available for your loved one. Lots of people worry that when it becomes difficult to manage everything at home, the only option available is a residential care home. Not only can this be a huge disruption to your loved one’s life, it is not always necessary, and is certainly not the only option!
Home is Where the Heart is
Personalized Homecare offer care and support services that enable your loved one to stay in the familiarity and comfort of their own home. Most people do prefer to stay at home if they can, it’s where the heart is, after all!
We all like to be surrounded by familiar things. Whether that is people or a favourite comfy chair, these things make us feel comfortable and secure. By considering in-home care when things get a bit difficult to manage, these things are not lost. Familiarity is exceptionally important to those with any memory related conditions as new people and new surroundings can be very confusing and distressing.
Our independence is important to all of us, and not something we like to give up easily! In-home home care allows your loved one to keep to the same daily routines and make their own decisions, keeping control over what they’d like to eat and when as well as when to go to sleep and get up! In-home carers can also help with getting out and about, helping with visiting friends or doing a bit of shopping.
Quite often, families come together to provide care for a loved one, and although it may get too much, they don’t want to hand over completely to someone else. By choosing to have care at home, the whole family can still be as involved as much as they like. Because in-home care is focussed on the individual, every care plan is tailor-made to your loved ones needs and preferences, offering support exactly when and where you need it, and should circumstances change, your care plan and carer will adapt accordingly.
When you choose to have in-home care services, decisions are made with you, not for you. Every care plan is put together with you and your family and loved ones, ensuring you receive just the right amount of support to enable you to continue living comfortably in your own home.
