Being a CAREGiver
It’s more than companionship, shopping and assisting with personal care!
Our CAREGivers are matched with our clients, and our staff hobbies and interests are really taken into consideration! Often the reason clients chose Home Instead is the attention to detail, and the understanding that we can maintain independence in so many ways.
We can help with preparing a meal plan, perhaps baking a family recipe together. Maybe getting ready for a celebration!
Older clients may no longer be able to drive, or get about as they would like, we want to help them continue to enjoy outings, visits and sometimes there is simply nothing better than companionship, sitting together on a wintry day, looking through photographs and having a chat about past events over a piece of home baked cake with a cup of tea.
Our younger clients with learning and/or physical disabilities very much enjoy participating in the community and we take them to their clubs, get involved with group trips and events and help them with their life skills and social inclusion. Home Instead is a Person Centred organisation focusing on what the client needs and wants to help them live a full-filling and meaningful life.
We are currently building teams in and around the following areas to provide care in Chelmsford, Witham and Maldon.
We have found Home Instead very useful indeed, and the CAREGivers are willing to go that extra mile. They have taken my husband out in their cars around the local countryside which of course keeps his brain active and also gives me a couple of hours respite to get on with chores! Today he is being taken to Chelmsford. I would be happy to recommend Home Instead Senior Care to others.Mrs K, Chelmsford
