Help At Home

Help at Home from a Carer

Having a carer come to visit you in your home can make a huge difference to your life, especially if you have difficulty walking or getting around.

 

Our service can help you stay living independently in your own home.

 

This type of care is known as home care  or sometimes home help.

 

Here at Alcester Home Care the support we can offer is very flexible.

 

You might need a carer for only half an hour a week or for several hours a day. You might even need 24 hour care, we are here to help.

It can be temporary – for example for a few weeks while you recover from an illness. Or it can be long term.

You might also consider home adaptations,  household gadgets or equipment to make life easier.

When should I consider help at home?

You might want to consider care at home if:

  • you're finding it difficult to cope with daily routines, such as washing, dressing and getting out and about

  • you don't want to move into a care home

  • you can still get about your home and it's safe for you to live in – or it can be adapted to make it safe

 

  • you are looking for a bit of companionship and support to help you through everyday life

How can home care help me?

A carer can visit you at home to help you with all kinds of things including:

  • getting out of bed in the morning

  • washing and dressing

  • brushing your hair

  • using the toilet

  • preparing meals and drinks

  • remembering to take your medicines

  • doing your shopping

  • collecting prescriptions or your pension

  • getting out, for example to a lunch club

  • getting settled in the evening and ready for bed

Home Help

This is slightly different to home care and means day-to-day domestic tasks that you may need a helping hand with such as:

  • cleaning (including putting on clean bed sheets)

  • doing the washing up

  • doing the laundry

  • gardening

  • You might want some home help instead of or as well as home care

  • personal assistant
