Care with Home Instead is whatever and whenever our clients need it to be.
For example, one of our clients, let’s call her P, has always been a keen botanist. She recently had some hospital treatment and needed a little support when she came home but with some help from her CAREGiver, Myfanwy, she’s been able to keep up with her interests.
Recently P heard from one her friends that the crocuses were out along the banks of the Mersey. She hadn’t seen crocuses for years and since they only bloom for a few weeks around October, time was of the essence. So she and Myfanwy organised an expedition to see if they could find them. Thankfully the weather was fine and sunny (rain would have flattened them) and they found not just one or two but whole beds of beautiful, purple flowers.
Myfanwy was delighted. “It was a fantastic day out. P is a wonderful, characterful lady and fabulous company. I love hearing all the stories of her alpine adventures when she was younger.”
When not going on field trips Myfanwy helps P maintain her beautiful garden (with expert guidance, being a complete novice), as well working with her to rebuild the stamina she lost during her stay in hospital.
“Myfanwy and Salmah, my other CAREGiver have both been brilliant.” says P. “They’ve helped get me back on my feet, physically and psychologically. Home Instead have been like a miracle coming to my rescue. Without them I’d have faced an empty house or a stay in care home. They really do live up to their name.”
