It’s fair to say that living completely independently is a desirable position to be in for most. However, there are many reasons why sometimes that is not possible. If yourself or a loved one needs a little bit of assistance to live the life you want, there are many options out there. Home Care from Chilworth Care is where one of our friendly and highly-trained staff can come to your home to help out as often or as little as you need.
We understand it can be extremely difficult to ask for help. That’s why home care services from Chilworth Care are built to respect your privacy and dignity. What we offer is particularly attractive to people who do not want to move to residential care and prefer the continuity of their routine and familiar surroundings.
Let’s take a look at what to expect from a home care service from Chilworth Care, and what adaptations you will expect to make should you choose to employ such a service.
What to expect
The often unfair perception of home carers is that they are intrusive and that they have some sort of desire to take over your life and control how you do things. This is absolutely not what our carers do!
We understand that everyone is different, and therefore, everybody needs a different level of help. At Chilworth Care, we work with you to tailor the care to your specific needs. Whether you need a 30-minute visit once a week, or multiple and longer visits every day of the week, we can help.
In our years of experience, the biggest challenge we have seen people face, and the biggest adaptation required, therefore, is the acceptance that the help is needed. What we provide is peace-of-mind to ensure you can live as independently as possible – and this takes some getting used to, but nothing is too much trouble for us.
With this comes a negotiation of routine. Whilst your mobility and independence are of the utmost importance to us, there might be times when we are not scheduled to be with you. This means that you have to either adapt to plan your time slightly differently or work with us to plan your visits on an adapted schedule. Getting this balance right can be frustrating and take some time but is worth it in the long run.
We see our home care service as offering a supporting arm to help with the burdens of everyday living as well as to reduce any sense of isolation whilst remaining independent.
You can be confident in the expert knowledge of our team. Every member of the Chilworth Care team has been fully trained and provided with the tools they need to ensure an excellent service to those that need it. All Chilworth Carers are fully DBS checked and confident in their skill set – this means they can provide the level of care you or your loved ones need to remain in your own home.
