Sometimes the need for home care comes suddenly and often unexpectedly. When that happens our team will get care up and running rapidly and effectively. But that’s not always the case. In fact, it’s very typical for us to start off with just a few hours of support for our clients during the week. Maybe some help with shopping, or taking medication, a bit of gardening, getting home from hospital or even just some companionship at home. As needs change, our team is able to respond and scale support up as required. We also know it can be hard sometimes to start conversations around home care. For those who’ve not looked into home care before, it’s not always obvious what kind of support you can get.
And for many older people and their families, while the benefits of care might be obvious, it can take time to feel comfortable with the idea. That’s why we encourage families to think a little bit ahead and to explore what options are available. You might be surprised with the range of support Radfield offers and the difference even just an hour or two can make to everyone. We’re always very happy to chat things through, no matter what stage of thinking you’re at. Please just get in touch! We’ve designed a personalised care needs report to enable you to take a closer look at the different ways home care could help.
