After your initial call to us, one of our qualified team will make an appointment to visit you at home to have a chat and assess what your particular needs are. It’s an opportunity for you to get to know us and ask any questions before we assign a caregiver who would best match your needs and personality. After all, we want to ensure you have the caregiver you are most comfortable with.
The cost of care will depend on the level of support you or your family member needs.
Personal care is a broad term used to refer to supporting with personal hygiene and toileting, along with dressing and maintaining your personal appearance.
It can cover, but is not limited to:
- Bathing and showering, including bed-baths
- Applying lotions and creams as required
- Dressing and getting ready for bed
- Oral hygiene
- Applying make-up, and hair care
- Support with shaving
- Helping you to the toilet, including using a commode or bed pan
- Changing continence pads, along with cleaning intimate areas
- Support moving position in bed, to stretch and prevent bed sores
In getting to know you as a person, your care plan will outline your likes and dislikes, the hygiene or beauty products you want to use and what – and who – you feel most comfortable with. Particular tasks, such as cutting nails, shaving and diabetic foot care, will always be outlined in your support plan with specific instructions for your carer.
Each carer is expertly trained to provide personal care in a way that is discreet and respectful of your personal boundaries. They undertake extensive training where they learn the importance of enabling your dignity and independence at all times.
Even though carers are trained to provide all aspects of personal care, there may be some things you’d prefer to do for yourself. A good carer will always give you space when you want it and encourage your independence wherever they can.
The options for personal care
Like all forms of care, support with personal care is built completely around your individual needs and personal routines. If you like to wash before breakfast, or have a bath before going to bed, a carer will happily follow your schedule, letting you live the way you want.
A carer at this level can provide more general assistance with housekeeping: they will help you with all of the following and more:
- planning, cooking and serving meals
- washing dishes
- light housework: vacuuming, dusting, sweeping and mopping floors, cleaning bathrooms and kitchens
- cleaning windows that can be reached without a ladder
- washing and ironing of laundry
- Your carer can help you with your pet, including feeding, exercising and taking to grooming appointments or to the Vet
Your carer will become a real companion to you and will remind you of appointments, and accompany you if you would like, as well as remind you to take your medication.
Day & Night Cover
Home care doesn’t stop at the end of the day.
Whether for a few hours during the day or night or as many as 24 hours, seven days a week, including holidays, Grand Home Care is happy to step in and enable families to have a break or get the rest they need, while providing peace of mind that their loved ones are receiving the attention and genuine care they require.
This service specifically gives regular caregivers a temporary break from the demands of caring for a relative. If you need to go out, one of our team will come and chat with your loved one, and provide some alternative social engagement activities for the time you are gone. This will help alleviate the problems associated with full time care-giving, that of exhaustion and depression.
Our carers also provide overnight care so you or your loved one can rest comfortably through the twilight hours too. You may need some assistance in the night. Being on your own or feeling unable to cope during the night can cause unnecessary anxiety for you and your relatives. A Night Sitter will provide you with the comfort of having a carer in your home who is there to help you when you need it – at any time of the night. You can choose how many nights per week you require this service, thus allowing you and your relatives to enjoy a relaxing nights’ sleep, safe in the knowledge that you will be cared for at all times.
Whilst staying overnight in your home, your Care Assistant will be there to:
- help you to the bathroom
- prompt you to take your medication
- offer you companionship
- assist you in the morning or during the night
- Ensure that your relative is safe and secure
Your Home Care Assistant will be present throughout the night, boosting your confidence and providing you with a fast response as and when you need it.
This service ensures that you are not left alone during the night. A care worker will spend the night in your home in a bed provided by you.
