Conditions we care for
We firmly believe that, where appropriate, offering people who suffer from dementia the opportunity to remain in the familiarity of their own home with tailored support from a trusted, trained, professional home carer enables them to retain independence and a much higher quality of life. We are highly experienced in providing specialist, one-to-one dementia care at home, fully supported and managed by our local care management team.
Our dementia home care service is available as either hourly care (1 hour to 24 hours per day, 7 days a week, including sleepover night care and waking night care) or full-time live-in care
Parkinson’s is a progressive neurological condition that affects motor skills, speech and other functions. People who get Parkinson’s often experience tremors, rigidity and slowness of movement. They can also experience non-motor symptoms affecting sleep, mood and memory. We are passionate about supporting elderly people with Parkinson’s care to remain in the comfort of their own homes where they can enjoy the highest quality of life possible.
Our one-to-one Parkinson’s home care service is available as either hourly care (1 hour to 24 hours per day, 7 days a week, including sleepover night care and waking night care) or full-time live-in care.
Carers are specially trained in supporting elderly people with mobility care and rehabilitation at home and our care management team work in close partnership with occupational therapists and physiotherapists to ensure you have the right mobility aids, home adaptations and support in place.
Changes that occur with ageing can lead to problems with moving around and mobility – maybe unsteadiness when walking, difficulty getting into a chair or a bed, or even falls. As a result, supporting mobility care, rehabilitation, disabilities and reducing falls risk is a key part of enabling older people to live safely at home.
All of our clients benefit from an assessment of their mobility, moving and handling needs and falls risk prior to commencing care at home. This not only ensures that our trained carers are able to provide individually tailored mobility care, but also that appropriate professional input (e.g. occupational therapist) and mobility interventions (e.g. equipment, adaptations) are arranged. Sometimes additional support in other areas can also contribute to this such as managing medications properly, arranging eye tests or doing targeted exercises.
Stroke Support And Aftercare
Strokes affect people in different ways – it can affect the way the body functions as well as thought processes and how people feel and communicate. A stroke can also have an emotional impact and can cause problems such as anxiety, depression or changes to personality. At Carefound Home Care we are able to provide a bespoke stroke care service enabling individuals affected by a stroke to recover in the comfort of their own home where their surroundings are familiar and loved ones are close by.
Our one-to-one stroke home care service is available as either hourly care (1 hour to 24 hours per day, 7 days a week, including sleepover night care and waking night care) or full-time live-in care
Cancer & Palliative Care
We recognise the benefits of receiving end-of-life support in the comfort of one’s own home. Our professional home carers are able to provide one-to-one palliative care at home to clients who may be suffering from a life threatening illness – we are here to help you, your family and carers through what is an extremely emotional and sensitive time.
