Enhancing Wellbeing and Preventing Hospital Stays with Home Care

Discover how Home Instead Derby South's best practices and expertise in home care promote healthier, happier lives for ageing adults and prevent unnecessary hospital stays.

At Home Instead Derby South, we follow the very best practices in home care, providing exceptional support for older adults. Our dedication to excellence as well as our expertise in supporting complex care needs at home, can make a significant positive impact on the lives of our clients, promoting healthy ageing and preventing unnecessary hospital stays.

In our ageing society, we can often see help arriving too late, waiting for a problem instead of supporting continuation of a life well lived. Waiting for a crisis can lead to hospitalisation and unnecessary stress. Instead, we advocate for a better approach with care and companionship at home. By stepping in earlier with best practice in home care, we can prevent health and wellbeing issues from occurring or escalating, and significantly improve the quality of life for the elderly within the comfort of their own homes and prevent hospitalisation too.

Our home care involves regular monitoring and proactive involvement to support living well at home. Our dedicated Care Professionals, backed by award-winning training, use comprehensive care records, logs, and plans to meticulously keep an eye on our clients’ well-being daily. This careful monitoring, combined with our relationship-led care (we get to know our clients as individuals, so we can spot when something is not quite right) and best-in-class technology helps us identify any changes in health or wellbeing, early on.

This holistic approach means we work closely with clients, their families, and healthcare teams, ensuring medical attention is provided promptly when needed. By collaborating with doctors or district nurses, we aim to prevent minor health issues from becoming major complications.

Preventing Hospitalisation

We understand that health is multidimensional, and feelings of isolation or unhappiness can lead to poorer health outcomes. By providing regular social interaction and mental stimulation, we ensure a holistic approach to care. It’s about creating a healthier, happier environment for your loved ones to thrive in their advancing years.

Providing a little extra support can keep routines and healthy habits maintained, and our expert support can often allow clients to live at home even if specialist care is needed. Home Instead Derby South offers specialised care that allows people to stay well at home even if some additional support is needed. Our services include support with stoma care, PEG feeding, catheter care (both suprapubic and urethral), support using nebulisers, specialised diet support, and specialist care for conditions such as dementia, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.

Enhancing Wellbeing

Seeking a little or a lot of care at home earlier isn’t about losing independence; it’s about support to maintain health and wellness to enjoy greater autonomy and freedom. To continue to live life on your own terms, in the place where you feel the most comfortable, home.
