When a loved one physically or mentally starts to deteriorate or they have a health emergency or have been in hospital for a long time, we can help at this time. We have an experienced staff team, working to re-enable people in these circumstances or if the persons condition is long term, supporting them in activities they can no longer do for themselves.
Many people will need some type of immediate support and this can involve care at home. We can come to your home and provide care for you or your loved one. Our Managers and Caring staff understand what is needed in these situations. This can be on a short term basis or on a more longer term. We will work with you to provide the care that is needed and can help you plan for any future care needs. We can support you to access other services and equipment too. We will work with the Individual to re-enable them to build their confidence and independence.
