Longer care visits, with a guarantee of no missed calls
We want to provide outstanding care to all of our clients and we feel that the way to do this is to provide longer care visits so we can fulfill the needs of our clients and get to know them on a personal level. Our care visits can range from a couple of hours to 24 hours a day, with all home care flexible and tailored to the clients wants and needs. Our Care Managers regularly monitor the care we provide by conducting risk assessments and quality assurance checks to ensure that everyone is happy with their package of care, and to identify any further support that may be required.
Some families who live further away from their loved ones may be concerned about whether or not the care is taking place as it should be. However Home Instead Senior Care Sheffield implement an IQ time card system, this ensures that CAREGivers arrive on time for each care visit by clocking in, and moreover provides a guarantee of no missed calls. Office staff constantly monitor this system to make certain that CAREGivers are where they should be.
The best people to provide the best care
Our CAREGivers are chosen specifically for their empathy, understanding and passion to deliver high quality care to our clients. CAREGivers during the application stage must provide six extensive references, and are subject to an enhanced DBS check to ensure that our clients will be in safe and capable hands. Both induction and refresher training is provided to all CAREGivers, with an option to undertake specialist Alzheimer and Dementia training to ensure they are prepared to deliver care to any of our clients. Even before the care package begins clients are always introduced to CAREGivers to identify if the client will feel comfortable with the CAREGiver. Trust is a key element of care and without it, clients will not feel comfortable, that is why we undertake a matching process so in time a natural and trusting friendship can emerge. We are currently recruiting CAREGivers so If you think you would make an excellent CAREGiver please apply through ‘Our Vacancies’ or call the office.
Jill and I live in the local area and believe that a family run care company is the most effective way of really understanding the needs of the elderly in the local community. We have had first hand experience when it comes to care for people with disabilities and mental health problems and thoroughly believe that by providing care services in Sheffield, which allows our loved ones to remain both independent and comfortable at home, we can provide a better standard of living for them, and keep them close to us. Our promise to you is to provide care at a standard, that we would expect to provide to one of our own family members.
Mum has not had good experiences in the past with Care Agencies, and is quite nervous and unsettled when a new person visits the house. I am delighted to say that the carers from Home Instead have all struck up a very good rapport with Mum and have clearly gained her trust and she truly looks forward to them visiting. The fact that the carers treat Mum as a person and are spending time talking to her normally and encouraging her to look through photographs etc has, I am sure contributed to this, and I have noticed a distinct improvement in her general demeanour - she is a lot happier in herself. Initially I needed Homeinstead to cover a short term resource problem, but I am now using Home Instead for support long term for Mum as I have been so pleased with the service.David - Sheffield
