Compassionate Support for Family Carers with Home Instead Nottingham

Discover the compassionate support Home Instead Nottingham can offer to family carers. Learn how we provide professional advice and practical assistance.

Being a family carer is a role that comes with immense love and responsibility. At times, however, the weight of caregiving can press heavily on your shoulders. It’s important to recognise when you’re taking on too much and to understand that it’s okay to seek support. 

The importance of supporting family carers

Research by Home Instead and our Take Care campaign, highlights the pressures family carers face, with many encountering mental health struggles. If you find yourself feeling isolated, trapped, or overwhelmed by stress and exhaustion, remember: you are not alone, and help is available.

Home Instead Nottingham is dedicated to easing the load off family carers by providing comprehensive support to our clients. During our home care visits, we extend our compassionate ear not only to our clients but also to their family members, whether you’re seeking advice or just need to talk.

The importance of supporting family carers

Local knowledge to source local support

Our partnership with local healthcare providers enables us to facilitate access to a range of additional support. We can liaise with your local Nottingham GP to connect you with social prescribers, community initiatives, and essential services tailored to your situation, to help combat feelings of isolation and stress.

The logistical aspects of being a primary caregiver are just as significant. Home Instead is here to assist with day-to-day tasks. Whether it’s escorting our clients to local appointments, managing household chores, or simply offering emotional support, we aim to lighten your burden wherever possible.

In collaboration with local organisations in Nottingham, like The Studio, we help our clients engage in activities beneficial for those with dementia and Parkinson’s. Re-engage is another helpful organisation and provides phone call companions and tea parties, Age UK provides financial advice for personal wellbeing, and we work with experts like St James’s Place to ensure you’re receiving all the support you’re entitled to.

Home care services support clients and families

Respite is essential in any caring role, and Home Instead Nottingham recognises this need. Our 24/7 on-call support, and home care services that can cover medication pick-ups, shopping help, and additional home visit arrangements are designed to give you the time to recharge. We also offer respite care and an overnight service to ensure you have the opportunity for restorative rest.

Companionship care is also a way for your family member to re-engage with others and the local community. For those needing more comprehensive support, our live-in care option provides peace of mind to family carers who might be considering a longer break or travel plans.
