LEARNING TO LIVE

Out and about in the community representing Home Instead Senior Care in East Herts & Uttlesford, some people are surprised to hear that our services are also available to young adults and individuals with disabilities in the community.  We have established ourselves as a trusted source of companionship and support to those that need us.  Our aim is to create a sociable environment for all of our clients which enables them to develop their skills, maintain their independence and importantly increase their self-confidence.    

As well as the care we provide, we are able to be the vital link between other organisations and health professionals.  This ensures the appropriate care package is designed, so independence is maintained whilst living in their own home.   Our clients could require assistance to access their local community, need support with life skills, home help, or support attending health and wellbeing appointments.  Home Instead Senior Care are able to provide person centred care, which would be regularly reviewed to ensure we are making adequate progress and identify any new problems or concerns .  Our clients and CAREGivers are matched to one another based on shared interests and we arrange an introduction prior to the care commencing.  For a CAREGiver to meet there client before any care is commenced is particularly valuable as the clients may feel vulnerable when in the company of strangers.  The continuity of care is vital as we want our clients to get to know and trust their CAREGiver . Forming a strong connection and friendship but keeping up with professional standards, is something that Home Instead excel at.  Our aim is to provide the care and support that we all would want for our loved ones.  With adequate support it’s so rewarding to enable people to stay in their own home and live life to the full.  Many people who we support with a learning disability even manage to work which gives them the independence that they need. Home Instead Senior care aim to provide the best support so everyone can reach their full potential. Peace of mind for families and a fulfilled life for their loved ones.
