As our loved ones age, it becomes increasingly important to ensure they receive the care and support they deserve. Home Instead Epping Forest understands the value of treating older clients with the love and attention they would receive from their families. With a personalised touch and a commitment to enhancing their quality of life, we go beyond typical caregiving services. In this blog, we'll explore how Home Instead Epping Forest creates meaningful experiences for clients and fosters genuine connections by incorporating real examples of what we do.
At Home Instead Epping Forest, we strive to create a family-like environment for your loved ones. We believe that everyone deserves to be treated with respect, dignity, and compassion, and we extend these values to each and every individual in our care. Our team of dedicated Care Professionals forms meaningful connections, building relationships based on trust, empathy, and understanding. We take the time to truly get to know your family members, their preferences, and their unique personalities, allowing us to provide personalised care that aligns with their needs and desires. With Home Instead Epping Forest, your ageing loved ones receive the highest standard of care that replicates the warmth and compassion of a loving family.
At Home Instead Epping Forest, we believe in keeping our clients mentally active and socially engaged. To achieve this, we send our clients a monthly magazine filled with articles that serve as conversation starters. These articles cover a wide range of topics, from reminiscing about past experiences to discussing current events, hobbies, and interests. Packed with puzzles, quizzes, and brain teasers, the magazine encourages mental stimulation while also serving as a tool to jog memories and spark interaction with carers, family members, and peers.
Loneliness and social isolation can significantly impact the emotional and mental wellbeing of ageing individuals. That’s why companionship lies at the heart of our care services at Home Instead. Our compassionate Care Professionals offer genuine companionship that enriches the lives of your loved ones. They engage in meaningful conversations, share hobbies and interests, and provide support and friendship that promotes a sense of belonging and happiness.
We understand the significance of providing our clients with opportunities to step outside their homes and experience the world around them. Our Care Professionals take clients on exciting day outs to various places, catering to their preferences and interests. From shopping trips to the local market to visits to the hairdressers, our clients have the chance to maintain their independence and enjoy familiar activities they once cherished.
Nature walks in parks allow our clients to bask in the beauty of nature, breathe in fresh air, and enjoy the company of others, fostering a sense of community. Additionally, our regular visits to cafes and memory cafes provide social interactions that are crucial for mental and emotional wellbeing. With Home Instead, your ageing loved ones are never alone.
One of clients Keith C (Son of Client) said:
“We have used Home Instead for around seven years and cannot recommend them highly enough! Their care professionals are exactly that – caring and professional. The benefits to her have been remarkable, both practical and emotional. The communication found with caregivers and management is excellent, and the additional services available make the overall relationship very reassuring.”
At Home Instead Epping Forest, we strive to identify and nurture our clients’ passions and interests. Recently, we had the pleasure of introducing one of our clients to a gardening club. With a similar interest in gardening, our client now enjoys spending time outdoors, tending to plants, and sharing experiences with like-minded individuals. This not only provides a healthy and enjoyable activity but also instills a sense of belonging and camaraderie.
In our dedication to enriching our client’s lives, we’ve compiled a comprehensive “What’s on Where” guide. This guide is a compilation of various clubs, activities, and events in the local area, curated to cater to the interests of our clients. Whether they wish to join social clubs, attend art classes, or explore their creativity, the guide offers a plethora of opportunities to stay actively engaged. Our clients can choose to participate in these activities either with their dedicated Care Professional or independently, depending on their preferences and comfort levels.
To ensure our clients have something fun and stimulating to do on days when they prefer staying at home, we’ve prepared summer activity books. These books are packed with puzzles, games, and brain exercises that promote mental agility and cognitive health. Whether they’re solving crossword puzzles or trying their hand at Sudoku, these activity books offer enjoyable ways to keep the brain active and sharp.
Don’t just take our word for it! We have received heartwarming testimonials from happy clients who have experienced the joy of our home care services. Here are some snippets of what they have to say:
Review from Simon F (Son-in-law of Client): Home Instead (Epping Forest) assisted my in-laws over a period of 4 years, enabling them to stay in their own homes. The whole team of caregivers provided an excellent level of care and support to our family, during an increasingly difficult time. We would have no hesitation in recommending them to others.
Review from Bill C (Husband of Client): All staff are excellent at all times.
Review from Barbara N (Daughter of Client): Service has been excellent for my mum.
Robert F (Client): Always very helpful when visiting me and exceptionally so yesterday when I was not well. A first-class service.
