Daily care at home
Most of us reach a stage where we need a bit of extra help, and sometimes family can’t be there exactly when you need them. Our daily home care involves regular visits of at least one hour, as many times a day as required and at the exact time you need it.
Our daily care visits are ideal for those that need occasional rather than permanent home care and support, such as getting out of bed, dressing and having breakfast in the morning; some extra help with the housework; or assistance in the evening and getting ready for bed.
We can provide visits on a strict time-table, or can be flexible, to suit you. We can provide care for 2 hours, twice a week, or visit numerous times every day – we really can accommodate your needs and provide care and support that you can trust and rely on.
Our carers are carefully selected and trained, with experience in a wide range of conditions such as dementia, Alzheimer’s, MS, Parkinson’s and looking after those who have been in hospital after a fall or stroke.
Our rota-based home care services
Our ‘Rosy Rota’ elderly care service has operated very successfully for many years. We think it is special and unique. We will provide you with a carefully chosen rota of experienced elderly carers who understand your specific needs and will work with you and the family to provide the exact support that you need.
Why choose daily home care?
Daily home care enables the elderly and infirm continue living independently in their own home, with regular visits from a carer as and when required. Our carers are there to help with personal care, attending appointments or events, cook your favourite meals, help with housekeeping, and most importantly company and companionship.
All our clients are looked after at times that suit them best, and we pride ourselves on the reliability of our service: if you need us there for an exact time – we will be there at that time. If you need to change your schedule to a different day or time, we can accommodate that too.
As we are an independent agency, we are able to offer an unparalleled level of flexibility and choice.
We take great care in matching the right carers with our clients so that your loved ones receive the exact care, understanding and support that they need.
Making the change
We understand that deciding on the right care for your loved ones is difficult for many reasons, and we are here to help. We have been working with families for over forty-eight years and have kept many people cared for and safe at home when life has become more challenging due to illness, injury, or just the effects of old age.
We know that discussing care with your loved ones is a sensitive issue: we will discuss your options, provide advice, and meet with you and your loved ones to get to know you and your needs – both physically and emotionally. As your needs change, we can adapt.
This lady is 90 years old and until a few weeks ago was very independent. She only needed help with cleaning and shopping. She suddenly deteriorated after Christmas and spent some time in hospital with a nasty chest infection. After a spell convalescing in a local hospital she was determined to return to her home and her beloved dog. When I visited her she was very frail but still retained a great sense of humour. She was desperate to come home and after liaising with the staff at the hospital she has now returned to her home. Because she is weak she needs a kind and caring live in carer who can perk her up and get her eating properly again. So that she is not left alone, daily carers come every day to give the carer their break. It is very satisfying when you know you can make a difference to somebody else’s life.
Your safety and peace of mind are paramount
All our Bunbury Carers are thoroughly checked in line with the UKHCA Code of Practice and have current DBS certification. They have the experience, knowledge and qualifications to look after vulnerable adults, maintaining the dignity and respect of the client.
Depending on the carer’s abilities and qualifications, they can provide various levels of personal care, administer medication and assist with moving and handling. They will assist with housekeeping, prepare and maintain a well balanced diet and provide companionship and support to meet all of your requirements.
When recruiting we perform a thorough procedure of checks and the carers must provide:
- Full details of their work experience or CV.
- Copies of all their qualifications.
- At least two references from recent employers.
- Two forms of identification.
- A Current Enhanced DBS Disclosure (Police Check).
All references are meticulously checked and verified by us over the telephone with previous Employers. This allows us to ask further questions and gain more in-depth knowledge of the carer. The carer is then interviewed by us to ensure they are suitable for our clients.
We are a home care agency based in Bunbury, Cheshire helping families predominantly across the North West and North Wales, although we are nation-wide.
