Discover the Benefits of Home Care in Brighton - Home Instead

Explore the many benefits of choosing home care services over care homes in Brighton. Home Instead offers personalised care in the comfort of your own home.

Personalised and Familiar Surroundings

The Comfort of Your Own Home

In the following sections, we will explore the benefits derived from the familiar and personalised surroundings that home care services afford, paying close attention to the undeniable comforts of being in your own home.

Personal Belongings

Opting for home care means that individuals can stay surrounded by their personal belongings, which often hold sentimental value and can give a sense of safety and belonging. This availability of personal belongings can:

Encourage positive memories and emotional well-being through a connection with cherished belongings.

Promote a sense of continuity, as individuals can maintain their existing lifestyles without the disruption caused by moving to a new place.

Help in creating a tailored care environment, where every item is placed considering the personal preferences and needs of the individual, ensuring a functional and comforting space.

Familiar Settings

Being able to stay in a well-known environment can have comforting benefits that care homes can rarely match. The advantages of familiar settings include:

  • Decreased Anxiety: Being in a known environment can significantly reduce anxiety levels, which often spike due to unfamiliar surroundings.
  • Memory Support: For individuals experiencing memory issues, familiar settings can act as a supportive tool, helping them to navigate daily life more comfortably.
  • Independence and Control: Staying in one’s home allows for a greater level of control over daily routines and activities, fostering a sense of independence.
  • Community Connections: Maintaining close proximity to friends, neighbours, and community networks can be easier when receiving care at home, nurturing existing relationships and promoting social well-being.

In this section, we have highlighted how the familiar environment of one’s home, paired with the presence of personal belongings, can craft a nurturing space that promotes both emotional and mental well-being. It forms the foundation of a personalised care approach, echoing Home Instead’s commitment to offering care services that respect individual preferences and promote happiness and comfort.

Tailored Care Plans

Within the scope of home care, a standout benefit is the provision of tailored care plans, a service that aims to meet individuals at their point of need, recognising the distinctiveness of each person’s requirements and preferences. This approach emphasised a commitment to respecting individuality and ensuring the highest levels of comfort. 

Individual Attention

At the core of tailored care plans is the assurance of individual attention, a commitment to understanding and meeting the specific needs and preferences of each client. This encompasses:

Personalised Assessments: Before visits commence, all clients will be assessed and a care plan will be drawn up to fully understand the needs and preferences of each individual.

One-to-One Care:  Our visits are one-hour minimum, so there is enough time for clients to get to know their Care Professionals and visits are not rushed.

Relationship Building:  Clients are matched to Care Professionals based on likes, hobbies and interests and clients will have the same Care Professionals visiting so relationships can be built over time. 

Flexible Schedules

Understanding that needs and preferences can change over time, our home care service prides itself on offering flexible schedules to cater to varying needs efficiently. This flexibility translates to:

  • Adaptive Care Plans: As situations change, care plans can be adapted to ensure that they always reflect the current needs of the individual, providing the appropriate level of support.
  • Respect for Personal Rhythms: Our Care Professionals respect the personal rhythms of each client, accommodating their preferred routines and schedules, whether they are early risers or night owls.
  • Accommodating Emergency Needs: Flexible schedules mean that emergency needs can be accommodated quickly and efficiently, ensuring the wellbeing and comfort of our clients at all times.

Through this holistic approach, individuals can thrive, feeling both supported and independent.
