Caring for Older Adults in Maidstone

As one daughter of our client explains: “Living a long way away it was a great comfort to me that Mum had a regular visitor each week who brought her out of herself.” The sense of relief and gratitude she felt knowing her mum was in capable hands is what we strive to achieve with our home care team at Home Instead Maidstone. 

As a family caregiver, it’s vital to acknowledge your limits and embrace help when needed. We know that many may feel that they ought to manage every aspect themselves, yet this can lead to burnout and stress. Welcoming one of our Care Professionals to visit at home can add a layer of support that benefits everyone involved. From shopping to meal preparation, or just sharing stories over a cup of tea, their presence offers not only peace of mind, but also variety and joy to the lives of those that they visit. 

One family’s 5 star review of our home care highlights this beautifully: “My mum was 89 and they cared for her in the last 12 months of her life as she was keen to stay at home as long as she could. Everyone who visited her offered varied support from shopping to helping with meals or just keeping her company. It was a great comfort to me knowing she had someone seeing her every day, and they supported me during the last few months which were stressful with her health. Always grateful for their human kindness.”

Indeed, taking even a short break and accepting help as a family caregiver is not a luxury but a necessity for maintaining your own health. Our services offer that much-needed respite, so you can recharge and return to your caregiving duties with renewed energy and perspective. Plus, it allows for your loved ones to form new relationships and enjoy a change in their daily interactions, a simple yet meaningful addition to their lives.
