Supporting Your Independence With Dignity And Compassion
Daily living, personal care and hygiene can become a challenge when suffering an illness, injury or recovery from an operation. It can be hard to admit that sometimes our loved ones need a little bit of help with their personal care and hygiene. But it can become even more complicated when we have no idea what they're actually going through.
Knowing how to take care of someone in the most personal ways, like changing catheters and maintaining stoma bags, isn't something we're all necessarily familiar with.
Everyone wants to care for their personal appearance, but asking for help can be tricky.
There might be times where it feels overwhelming and can take away dignity for everyone involved.
Feeling this way when caring for a loved one can feel terrible, but Home Instead Wandsworth is here to help. We understand that unfamiliarity with caring for someone is normal. That’s why we provide care for you or your loved one in comfort and the familiar surroundings of your own home.
Our highly personalised care plan will cover all your needs. We'll work with you to determine the type of support that best suits your preferences, including how, when and where you would like to receive support from us. You can feel confident in our services and know we're there when needed for whatever you need us for.
Personal care isn't just a service for elderly people. Good personal care can drastically improve the quality of life for someone who might be recovering, from an injury or surgery, or suffering from an illness or disability.
CAREGivers are Home Instead's own professional carers, and we match them, through careful care assessment, to each and every client to ensure they are the perfect person for the job
Personal Care in The Comfort of Your Home
When you need help with your personal hygiene and needs, we can assist. We offer many services to ensure a modest and dignified life for our clients!
At Home Instead Wandsworth, we believe that everyone deserves the best support and comfort every day.
This is why we are committed to uplifting your living standards by providing you with a broad range of personal care services.
Personal care covers a broad range of different areas of care and support that can be provided by Professional carers. These services may include:
- Shower and bathing assistance
- Help with dressing
- Personal grooming needs
- Toilet assistance and incontinence care
- Bathing assistance
- Help with oral hygiene
- Assistance with meals
- Medication management
- Support while performing daily exercises
Personal care extends beyond the home. If you don't feel clean in yourself or feel like you can't handle everyday tasks, maintaining a social life can be difficult. Daily life can become hard with no social interaction.
Our caregivers also provide companionship through specialist care visits tailored based on what's essential for each individual.
The Benefits Of Our Personal Care Services
It takes a lot to find quality personal care services that you can trust as everyone has their own preferences and ways of living their life.
Here at Home Instead Wandsworth, we want you to receive nothing less than an outstanding experience.
We can assure you of:
- Individualised and professional personal care services
We understand that each individual is unique, which is why we always take the time to build a close rapport with our clients. This allows us to adjust our personal care plan to suit the needs and preferences of you or your loved ones. In residential care homes, you can see a litany of people from one care team all in one day, which can become confusing to people who have dementia. Through our approach, we consistently deliver the highest standard of care that suits each client for a more fulfilling life.
- True companionship and understanding of the needs at hand
Our strength lies in our CAREGivers, as we strive to be true companions to our clients. We do this by making our services have a true ‘personal’ touch by addressing the needs of the individual up to a level of true comfort. Unlike residential care homes and other home care services, our approach is person-centred. This means we match the perfect CAREGiver to the client. Our CAREGivers will not compromise when it comes to giving you the types of care, valuable companionship and support you require. Your joy and satisfaction are personal to us.
- Help support your close family members.
While it might seem like an easy decision to let a family member take care of your personal care needs, the duties of specialist care may become too much. Our team of professional CAREGivers treat everyone with the dignity and respect they deserve so they understand exactly how you like something to be done, where, when, and how. This allows you to get back to spending quality time with your loved one.
- Efficient and timely communication
Our personal care plan involves an efficient and timely communication guarantee, so you are always aware of the condition of your loved ones. We will also coordinate with the designated medical care providers so that they have all the support needed and the best life possible.
Personal Care For People With Dementia
When someone receives the diagnosis of dementia, it can be difficult to know what to do and where to go. The many stages of dementia make it challenging to know what types of care are needed and when.
It’s common to associate Alzheimer's disease and dementia with elderly people, but the condition can affect people at younger ages. Research shows that 5% of people with Alzheimer's disease will experience it early-onset and before 65.
Home Instead Wandsworth can Provide a high level of care to people with dementia and Alzheimer's disease. People suffering from advanced dementia may not be able to care for themselves like they used to. Professional carers can provide 24-Hour care to ensure that whenever they are needed, they are at hand.
Live-in care is a real alternative to residential care, keeping you or your loved one safe in the familiarity of home.
At Home Instead Wandsworth, our caregivers understand precisely what personal hygiene means to a person. They know that it's not only about cleanliness and hygiene; it also includes daily tasks like dressing yourself in a way that makes you feel confident about your appearance - it's an outward expression of who you are on the inside!
Hygiene can also come down to domestic tasks like wiping down surfaces and making sure dishes are clean, looking after the small things that may have been forgotten. It's a quality of care that is necessary to keeping close to an independent life.
Care homes may offer similar support to vulnerable people, but receiving specialist care from familiar surroundings is priceless.
