Discover stories of transformative care, from hourly support to comforting live-in assistance, at Home Instead Altrincham, Sale, and Wythenshawe.

Our client's care journey with Home Instead is truly inspiring

After a stroke left him needing support at home and with family abroad, he found solace in our care. Despite initial reluctance, to accept care at home our client relaxed the most in the comfortable of his personal space.

Initially, our client only needed minimal support, one hour calls for food preparation and medication but as his health needs grew, so did our care. Shani moved in as his Live-in Care Professional and became his lifeline. They clicked instantly, and Shani’s dedication has been remarkable. From cooking delicious meals to organizing outings and appointments, Shani goes above and beyond. Under Shani’s care, our client has thrived. He has gained confidence, structure, and joy in his daily life. Even with dementia, Shani’s support has been transformative, bringing back a sense of normality.

Our client’s progress is evident to all who know him. With a structured routine and personalised care, he is thriving like never before. From outings to the beautician to simple pleasures like enjoying a film, every moment is cherished.

Our client’s story is a testament to the power of compassionate and tailored care at home. At Home Instead Altrincham, Sale, and Wythenshawe, we’re proud to be a part of his remarkable journey.

  3. What accommodations does a client need to offer a live-in carer, such as Shani, for optimal care provision?
    • When opting for live-in care, clients need to provide certain accommodations to ensure the comfort and well-being of their dedicated Care Professional. This typically includes a private bedroom for the carer to rest, access to WiFi for communication and entertainment, and scheduled breaks to prevent caregiver burnout. These accommodations enable the carer, like Shani, to provide high-quality, uninterrupted care while maintaining their own well-being.
