If only I had a crystal ball, wouldn’t planning for your older years be so much easier?
‘When should I start thinking about care?’ ‘What does care look like?’ ‘Surely I can’t stay at home.’ Do these sound familiar, if so rest assured you’re not alone.
There is no set formula, no right or wrong. It is important to ensure you understand your options and your preferences so that when the time feels right wheels can be set in motion. This is not just about care planning, it also provides peace of mind for yourself, family members and loved ones.
Karen Knapp, Director at Radfield Home Care Epsom & Leatherhead said:
“It’s never too early to do some research and find out what options are out there to enable you to live your older years just how you want to.”
Home care services offer different options which means they can adapt alongside you and your loved one as you change through the years. At Radfield Home Care Epsom & Leatherhead, our Care Professionals can provide bespoke care packages that suit your health and social care needs. These range from one or two visits a week to daily calls, and overnight care all the way through to live-in care for consistent support.
Our Care Professionals are fully trained in a variety of skills and specialisms to ensure we fully understand the needs of our Clients to enable them to keep enjoying the life they love. These include dementia, Parkinson’s, motor neurone disease, end-of-life care, peg feeding and many more.
Most people’s biggest fear or hurdle is the thought of allowing a stranger into your home. At Radfield Home Care we strive to match personality, interests and experience when placing a Care Professional with a client to help overcome this feeling as soon as possible. It’s completely normal to feel apprehensive about change but when you are in control and you have the right support in place this is nothing to worry about.
