Live In Care 

 

For an increasing number of people, live-in care is a wonderful, welcome alternative to residential care. Live-in care helps people live independently in the comfort of their own home. No upheaval, no disruption. It gives them the ability to be independent, stay close to friends, keep their pets and most importantly maintain their hobbies and interests.

A Stoney Staffing Solutions carer lives in the home of the client, full-time, so there is always care on-hand whenever it is needed. In fact, when people facing this decision were asked what they prefer, 90% of people wanted to stay in their own home. Stoney Staffing Solutions Homecare’s live-in care service gives you the option to live life your own way and is an excellent cost effective alternative to a care home.

 

Types of care


Care at home is a very personal requirement and as such varies considerably – from companionship and providing help with domestic duties to intensive personal care assisting individuals with specific needs such as dementia, Parkinson’s and rehabilitation from hospital. Care at home is generally viewed in three categories, all designed to give clients as much independence and quality of life as possible:

 

Companionship and Housekeeping


A Stoney Staffing Solutions will help stimulate conversation, create new experiences and reduce the burden of domestic duties – generally enriching the client’s quality of life. Activities could include:

  • Light domestic support such as cleaning, laundry, care of pets and light gardening duties
  • Preparing meals and sharing favourite recipesShared enjoyment of common interests and hobbies
  • Assisting clients to entertain friends and family; for example carers with bake a cake for an afternoon tea or bridge party, or cook Sunday lunch for a family visit.
  • Facilitating short trips out – perhaps a drive in the car on a sunny day, or a trip to a garden centre for a cup of a coffee
  • Arranging necessary appointments and assistance with correspondence, paperwork and new technology
  • Help clients to keep in touch with family or friends abroad by activating a Skype chat for them every week

Personalised Care


A Stoney Staffing Solutions Carer will have similar goals to a companion but will have a larger focus on helping the client maintain independence, dignity and respect. Activities could include:

  • Assistance with getting up and going to bed
  • General mobility assistance
  • Help with personal hygiene and getting dressed
  • Reminders to take necessary medication
  • Sympathetic encouragement and assistance with eating and drinking
  • Maintaining sufficient fluid intake
  • Reinforcing daily physiotherapy routines
  • Maintaining dignity with respect to continence care
  • Maintenance of personal appearance – help to style hair or visits to the hairdresser, help to apply make up, shaving, visits to or from a manicurist, help with choosing clothes etc

Specialised Personal Care


A carer giving specialist support will either have had many years experience (for example dealing with family members) combined with suitable training or have nursing qualifications. These carers will understand the difficulties and unpredictabilty and stressful nature of conditions such as dementia, stroke and Parkinson’s and are aware of the emotional turmoil they can create. Typical conditions include:

  • Dementia – providing consistency of routine in familiar surroundings
  • Parkinson’s – help adapting to new routines
  • Mental Health – cultivating boundaries and routine and providing emotional support
  • Learning Disabilities (for both adults and children)
  • Special Needs (e.g. Autism and Asperger’s Syndrome)
  • Convalescence – adjusting to new challenges and new health and safety hazards
  • Rehabilitation – endeavoring to reinforce daily rehabilitation (e.g. physiotherapy) routines
  • Palliative – increasing comfort and promoting dignity
