Home care is not just about physical assistance with your daily routine. Every person needs something unique to them and this means it’s hard to know what to ask us for, or what we might be able to help you with. Our hourly care service is completely flexible and we love a chat too so if you’re not sure, our door is always open. Here are just some of the ways that we already support our domiciliary care clients.
Health Care – We can support you to make sure that your prescriptions get refilled on time and that all of your medications are organised in a way that makes it easy for you to keep track of what to take and when. We can also provide transport to medical appointments and facilitate trips to the pharmacist. Whatever type of flexible care support you need, we’re here to help.
Personal Care – Our Care Angels are available to assist you with washing in the morning and/or evening at your preference. They are also able to support you with the rest of your daily care routine whether that be hair care, skin care or nail care. Anything that has become a bit of a struggle becomes much easier with an extra pair of hands!
Shopping & Meal Preparation – Shopping can be a bit daunting when you factor in mobility issues and crowded supermarkets. Whatever you need to make this task a little easier, your carer can help. Having someone available to drive you to the shop, reach items on high shelves and carry the heavy bags can make a world of difference. We’ll also put it all away for you when you get home. We can also help with writing lists or ordering groceries online.
Domestic Tasks – Many of our clients are very house proud and sometimes it can feel disheartening when you’re no longer able to keep your home as clean and tidy as you’d like. Fortunately, this is something else for which our Angels can offer support. We can help you with that big spring clean and declutter all the items that you no longer need. We can also assist regularly with your normal cleaning routine. We’ve listed below some of the duties we’re most commonly asked to help with:
- Domestic Cleaning – dusting, hoovering, cleaning the bathroom & kitchen, cleaning windows, changing bed linen.
- Laundry – Clothes washing, ironing, taking items to the dry cleaners.
- Pet Care: Feeding your pets, changing the litter tray, walking the dog.
Companionship & Socialising – Even if you’re managing your daily routine independently, our Care Angels are more than happy to attend simply to provide some company. After all, nothing beats a good old fashioned cup of tea and a natter! In a society where loneliness is becoming a more prominent issue, we think it’s incredibly important to make some time for socialising. We can pop round for a chat or we could help out with hosting an event for your friends and family. A spare pair of hands to help cook, wash up and keep everyone’s drinks topped up means a lot less stress for you.
Days out – We can also assist by driving you to any groups, clubs, events or shows. There’s no need to miss out on the lifestyle that you used to have.
The best thing about providing flexible care services, is that you don’t necessarily need to know what you want. We love meeting new people and striving to provide the best home care in Surrey is our passion, so whatever you may require, we’re here to help.
