Summary of services on offer at Home and in the Community by Homecare’s qualified team of care staff include:
Domiciliary Care : This care package is offered at home to those service users with complex health problems who are unable to care for themselves due to their illness or disability. Care workers provide practical support and personal care to individuals within their own homes, thus preventing them from moving into residential or nursing accommodation. The provision also offers much needed support to the relatives and friends who normally provide their care.
Mental Health : Home Care workers provide a range of support to mental health service users - this includes supporting them within their homes and encouraging social inclusion within the community. Care workers provide service calls from one hour up to 24-hour shifts within the home. The ultimate aim is to rehabilitate the service user back into the community by building up their confidence and helping them to gain independence.
Learning Disabilities: Supporting service users at home and in the community. Support includes social indoor and outdoor activities such as bowling, snooker, cinema and theatre. Access to social inclusion is a valuable part of supporting people into the community, aiming to make family involvement and other personal and social contacts.
Elderly Mentally ILL (EMI): This care package is aimed at offering respite to the service user’s main carer (paid or voluntary). Tasks undertaken by the Home Care worker will include reading or providing company to the client by simply talking to them. Care workers will assist with the service users independence to ensure that their dignity is maintained whilst receiving assistance.
