River Garden Home Care offers reputable elderly home care in Bromley. Our home care services are excellent and carried out with compassion. As our loved ones grow older and find it harder to live independently, or as they get sick and can no longer do most of the activities they used to engage in, it is only fair that we enable them to continue living a fulfilling and more dignified life in their own homes. While some people might elect to send their elderly to homes, having them stay at home while ensuring they are in the right hands is one of the greatest honours that can ever be done to them. If you have spent most of your life in your home and you are used to its sights, colours and scents, it can be very frustrating to leave and go start a new life in another place. We want you to continue enjoying the familiarity of your house, as we take care of all the home care activities that may seem too hard to accomplish.
One of our core values at River Garden Home Care is to treat those who come under our care as we would like our own people to be treated. We understand that different circumstances might prevent the immediate family members to be present at all times to watch their loved ones. However, as far as taking proper care of the homes and ensuring that the elders have taken their medication and meals in good time is concerned, we ensure that there is no gap.
Great care has to be taken when selecting the staff that will be helping the elderly. The staff has been picked from the surrounding community and taken through proper training to ensure that they are competent enough to provide the right care for the varying conditions of the elders. Everybody would be careful who they open their doors to and who they welcome into their homes. That is why it is important to vet every candidate and ensure they are the perfect fit to take care of the clients. Not only will they help around in the house, but they provide much-needed companionship for the elders.
Best Live-in Care Services
The care personnel can either come to the homes on a daily basis or live in the house with the clients. The former come and take care of the cleaning and cooking of the meals among many other activities. If there is shopping to be done, they may do it too and ensure the meals and drugs are taken in good time. However, there are some elders’ conditions that dictate that the care givers stay with them and watch over them all 24 hours. This is especially evident in the event that the elders’ mobility has been compromised or if they suffer from dementia. In this event whoever is coming to stay with them has to be skilled in giving care to dementia patients.
Injuries among the Seniors
A lot of injuries happen among the seniors as age and sickness reduce their ability to take part in the activities that they used to before. Some of these emergency room visits can easily be avoided if the senior people can have experienced personnel come in and help with the activities that they can no longer accomplish with ease.
There are three key steps that should be taken before settling for the home care services plan. The first is carrying out an assessment of the needs at hand. The condition of the patient will largely determine whether they will need a live-in caregiver or not. Their condition is not just limited to mobility, but also the activities that need to be done in the house and their ability to remember to do things as take medicine. Once this has been established, the next step is determining the funding for the care. Professional providers will help you draw out a funding plan and tailor the services to meet your needs and the budget at that point. Yet the other thing that should be considered is the eligibility to get help with the costs, which a visit to the Social Services Older Adults team can easily ascertain.
