Our Homecare Services
Friendly Homecare offers a broad range of affordable care and support solutions, tailored to an individual’s own personal requirements. We can provide you with varying levels of visits to suit your specific needs ranging from weekly visits to multiple daily visits.
We provide support for people suffering from dementia. Because of the need for consistency and familiarity, we will always try as best as we can to allocate as few Support Workers as possible, depending on the level of support required – whether it is a few hours a day / week or 24/7.
Due to their conditions / disability, some individuals find it difficult managing their personal care independently. This can be frustrating; and for some, cause embarrassment asking for assistance. We are here to help with these issue.
We can support individuals with equipment such as hoists to aid their mobility – whether it is a ceiling or portable hoist. Support Workers receive training in moving and positioning people. Your care needs assessment will take full account of your needs. Some individuals may require the assistance of two Support Workers. This will be arranged. If you have a catheter, we can assist with emptying and changing the bag.
It can sometimes become daunting when vulnerable individuals have to manage their medication and remember when and what medication to take. This is especially so, if there are multiple medicines to take. You may need to take tablets, have eye drops instilled and / or creams applied. We can support you with this if needed, relieving the stress of it all.
With the availability of this service, many people choose to remain in their own homes rather than making the very difficult choice of moving permanently into a care home or other type of care establishment. It is simple – over their lifetime, people accumulate memories and form attachments to their possessions and environment. Why then would they want to leave it all behind because they need care and support?
Some individuals may require overnight support. This may be to render them with assistance in the night or simply for companionship – just knowing that you are not alone in the house in case of any emergencies. Many older people and those suffering from Dementia tend to become anxious at night especially if they live alone.
We can provide you or your loved one with a friendly and familiar face to help stimulate social interaction. This may be just to have a chat over a hot drink and reminisce over past or current events; but it can encompass much more.
Our Housekeeping Service is aimed at helping you to maintain the cleanliness of your home so that you can be comfortable and relaxed. Many older people or those with disabilities, often find housekeeping to be quite tedious. Simple tasks can become quite difficult if you are frail or suffering from an illness such as arthritis.
Friendly Homecare provides varying levels of support to several groups of individuals including the elderly, individuals with learning or physical disabilities, mental health issues and children.
