The importance of being care aware

With a great deal of uncertainty surrounding care in the local community, Home Instead Crewe is stressing the importance of knowing your options when it comes to care.
Traditionally, residential care homes have been the main player in the care sector, however with new and emerging services available it can be overwhelming to make the difficult decision of how best to provide care for yourself or a loved one.

Therefore Home Instead is keen to point local residents in the right direction.

Dawn Sime, owner of Home Instead comments: “There are all sorts of horror stories emerging about the demise of residential care homes and understandably this can cause a lot of worry.  However, it is certainly not all doom and gloom in the care sector, with many companies providing an excellent service. We recommend keeping abreast of all services available in the area by contacting signposting organisation such as Age UK, The Alzheimer’s Society or your local doctor’s surgery. These organisations are invaluable when it comes to giving you the facts and empowering you to make the right decisions for you.”
Dawn continues: “More and more people are opting for at-home care if this is a realistic option, as from our experience here at Home Instead, it can provide a great deal of security and stability as well as allowing for prolonged independence for those requiring care.”
“With an ageing population, caring for the elderly is a very important issue and we have found many people are grateful to learn that there is now a realistic ‘stay at home’ option. As the word is spreading, we have gained a number of new clients in the area, and as a result we are actually on the lookout for a number of new caregivers and are keen to hear from caring and compassionate people across the area who might be interested in finding out more.”
