A report out today from Unison highlighted issues around 15 minute visits, and how they make carers feel ‘angry, ashamed and embarrassed’.
Here at Home Instead Sheffield, we don’t believe quality care can be delivered in a ‘flying visit’, our homecare visits typically last a minimum of two hours because we simply don’t believe that quality homecare can be delivered in less time. Therefore, this means, at Home Instead Sheffield we do not have carers who are left angry, ashamed or embarrassed by the time they have to deliver our care. In fact they are left enjoying a sense of fulfilment and reward.
In an independent survey conducted in 2015, 98% of our CAREGivers said they are given enough time to deliver desired levels of care to their clients. We proud ourselves on this, and this is why we have Time to Care.
Do you have a loved one that requires support in their own home? You can’t always be there. But we can. With Home Instead Sheffield caring for a loved one doesn’t have to be a struggle, it’s why we offer everything from individualised help around the home to personal care – to keep them safe and sound at home, instead of anywhere else.
