Given the choice, most of us would prefer to stay at home instead of moving to a residential care facility when we get older.
"Home is where love resides and friends and family belong"
With the proper support and care, even those with advanced care needs can usually remain at home provided that the care is supervised by experienced and knowledgeable professionals.
CareCompany offers a complete homecare service that's tailored to each of our clients and changes to fit your changing needs - from just a few hours here and there, extra support while recovering after a medical procedure, specialised dementia care, or 24/7 full-time care.
Daily Routine Support
If you have trouble keeping on top of everything you need to do, your carer will support you with your daily routine. They can help you with dressing and personal grooming, reminding you to take medication, attend Doctors appointments, and doing all the little things like writing birthday cards and feeding the dog that make you who you are.
“I felt at ease having my new companion accompany me to a specialist at the hospital. So much of what the doctor was saying was overwhelming but my companion explained everything to me. She was so patient and warm – lovely to chat to too!” – Mr Coetzer
If you have reduced independence, we can assist you with light housekeeping tasks and grocery shopping. In addition, we can help you with meal preparation, taking into account your food preferences and desired meal times.
“Our companion made an enormous difference by helping us with the little things. She helps us pack shopping away and then makes us one of her famous salads that we now call ‘Julia’s Salad.’ She even showed us how to use Skype so we can talk to our children in Australia. We don’t know how we’d get on without her.” – Mr and Mrs Cooper
Carers that care for you and about you
Our carers are good company whilst providing support for personal and household activities.
“My companion helps me live the life I want. She’s always available for a trip to the bank, the shops and the hairdresser. She makes it possible to have these activities as a regular part of my life and not just a luxury when I can find someone who will take me. She’s fantastic.” – Ms Simmonds
