Supporting Client and Families During Isolation
Supporting older people in the community has never been so important as it is during the coronavirus pandemic. With families isolated from their ageing parents and grandparents, and the limitations to travel for those living further afield, the requirement for increased at-home support has really grown.
"We have seen our clients' requirement for support increase significantly since the government brought in the social distancing measures," remarked Chris Lye, the owner of Home Instead's office in Ipswich. "We are incredibly appreciative of our amazing CAREGivers who have courageously stepped up the care and support for many of our clients during these uncertain times. We are also very grateful, of course, that our clients and their families continue to place great trust in our service."
"We have recently expanded our service from hourly visits to include live-in care," Chris explains, "as clients seek the reassurance and companionship of having a dependable CAREGiver living with them during the pandemic. We're delighted to be able to offer such a range in services, from just a few hours a week to living-in."
