Personal Care

When faced with illness or immobility, it can be a struggle to carry out everyday activities that you may have once performed with ease.

Our discreet personal care service is designed to support you with your day-to-day living, as well as providing you with the encouragement and emotional support that you may need to remain living independently.

Our personal care service can support you with getting in and out of your bed, dressing, administering medication, bathing and continence care, at a time to suit your convenience. Maintaining your dignity is of paramount importance to us, which is why our Carers will ensure you feel comfortable at all times.

Bathing
Your personal Carer is able to fully support you with your bathing requirements. They can assist you in getting in and out of the bath or shower safely, as well as washing and drying your hair and body, if required. Should you be able to bathe independently, they are able to sit with you and offer support when needed; giving you peace of mind that someone is there to ensure your safety.

This can include changing catheter and stoma bags, incontinence pads and sheets, and help with bathing and changing clothing.

Household Tasks
Our Carers can assist you with light household duties as part of your personal care service and will help with tasks such as laundry, vacuuming and washing up. If you are able to complete these tasks yourself, in order to maintain your independence our Carers can just be on hand to offer support where required.

Medication Assistance
You may sometimes forget to take your prescribed medication, or may struggle to take it the correct way, which could put your health at serious risk. Our personal care team are able to alleviate this worry by prompting you to take your medication and ensure you’re taking the right dosage, at the right time.
