Home care tailored to you
Our dedicated care staff and management team ensure we are able to offer a broad range of home care services. The support we offer is always tailored to meet individual needs.
Our Care Workers can visit you at times that suit your lifestyle. We are available to provide our home care services 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year. Whether you need two hour-long visits everyday or you may simply just need a 30-minute visit once a week, either way we can accommodate your unique needs.
We can help with personal care for everyday or just small amounts from time-to-time
Illness, age or infirmity can make it difficult to carry out all of the personal care tasks that you once handled with ease. We understand that this can be frustrating or embarrassing.
Our qualified, respectful Care Workers are experienced in helping all kinds of people with their personal care. We appreciate the importance of respecting your dignity at all times. We will help you to retain as much independence as possible. The Care Workers are understanding and sympathetic, without being patronising.
They know that every customer is an individual, with unique personal needs, preferences and values. Our support arrangements will be personalised to your own requirements. This can involve your family members if you wish. Rest assured, we will only provide the services that you have specifically asked for in your care and support plan.
We can even provide respite care and support to people who are
caring for someone else.
If you’re a carer looking after a family member, you probably don’t get much respite from your duties. Although helping a loved one is rewarding, it’s also extremely demanding. A few days rest can recharge your energy levels and enthusiasm, and we can help with that.
Knowing that you are able to take a short break from time to time can be a great incentive to keep you going. Especially when you can be confident that the person you care for will be well looked after by a trained professional during your absence.
We can help with housework, personal care, shopping or simply provide company.
Care Select offers a specialised care service for people who need care and support with day-to-day life. We cater to those who want to receive care at home, rather than enter a care home. Our live in care enables you to remain in your own home, as independently as possible, while receiving support from a live-in Care Worker.
Live-in care keeps you with your familiar surroundings and your own possessions. Ensuring that you have flexibility, choice and control over your life. As long as you can provide a separate bedroom for your Care Worker, it’s the perfect home care solution. You may also qualify for financial support from your local authority.
Dementia and alzheimer’s care home support allows our clients to stay in familiar surroundings
What is dementia? According to the Alzheimer’s Society, dementia is a set of symptoms that may include memory loss and difficulties with thinking, problem-solving or language. There are currently 850,000 people with dementia in the UK, with 1-in-6 people over 80 having the condition. Some of the most common symptoms are:
Day-to-day memory. Recalling recent events can be problematic.
Limited problem solving. Our Care and Support Workers present decisions to clients in a way which is sympathetic to
their condition. We will never overwhelm anyone with choices.
Change in appetite. A common symptom of dementia is a change in tastes or loss of appetite. Our award-winning training system offers our Care & Support Workers courses on Food & Hydration.
Communication & language. Finding the right words or understanding questions asked can be frustrating for those with dementia. This is why we offer training to Care & Support Workers on how best to communicate.
Someone you can chat to and discuss things with, at home or when out-and-about.
According to Age UK, almost a million older people in the UK go for more than a month without speaking to anyone. We’ve found that many clients don’t necessarily need a lot of help. But perhaps would sometimes like companionship to support them during various activities.
If there’s room in your life for someone like that, Care Select can help. One of our Care Workers can visit you or offer support and add a vital human element to your day. They will become a trusted, friendly face. We want to provide someone to share your interests with, while offering companionship.
Clients have found that getting together with a companion makes them feel revitalised and energised. Spending quality time with someone who understands them and is genuinely interested in them is very important.
We can relieve the stress by supporting you to manage your medication.
Many people of all ages find it difficult to manage medication. Taking a variety of different pills in differing amounts at specific times can be very challenging to cope with.
Medication assistance can be given in many ways to ensure that you are taking the right medicine at the right time. We can prompt you, assist you with this or give full support by administration. That way we will be ensuring that your health needs are met.
We can also discuss your health needs with you in general. If you need an appointment with a healthcare professional, then we can support you to make the appointment. We can also accompany you should you so wish.
Shopping & Meal Preperation
Regular, balanced meals are essential to maintain good health.
Unfortunately, some older people and those with physical or mental difficulties are not always good at (or capable of) looking after themselves in this way. That’s where Care Select can help. We offer a personal service for food shopping and meal preparation.
It’s so easy for certain people to overlook regular meals. Often finding food preparation a chore or too difficult, or simply forgetting to eat. Others know they need to eat regularly, but find it too much of a struggle to go to the trouble. So they end up eating all the wrong things, like cakes, biscuits, ready meals and other unhealthy choices. These are fine as a treat. But healthy, nutritious meals need care to plan and prepare.
Meeting both new and familiar faces can have a positive effect on your contentment
Meeting both new and familiar faces can have a positive effect on the contentment of someone being cared for at home on a long-term basis. For someone undergoing a short rehabilitation period, getting out and about and having visitors can help speed up the recovery process.
In the care plans we draw up with our clients, we always try to incorporate some elements of socialising, catered to each person.
Although everyone has unique needs, and physical abilities may differ greatly, we find that everyone benefits from occasional (and preferably regular) socialising. A social event can be something to look forward to, enjoy at the time and then look back on and reflect on.
If someone is wheelchair-bound, that’s not a barrier to us. Even someone who is permanently bedridden should be able to receive visitors at home from time-to-time. This brings a little of the outside world into their life and can make a big difference.
Care Select can support you with the day-to-day tasks so you can say goodbye to chores.
Clients of Care Select can benefit from many different care services on offer. This can include those which do not involve personal care. Domestic care is a typical example of what we can provide. These options can be equally valuable in helping people to maintain their independence.
Even our clients who don’t need much assistance with their personal care are usually delighted to learn that they can receive help with some of those tedious routine jobs, such as cleaning, laundry and ironing. These tasks can be very physically demanding. So it’s good for clients to get relief from the pressure of these never-ending tasks.
Some of our clients simply cannot manage these activities. For older clients, it can be a great help to hand the jobs over to someone else. Delegating these tasks to Caremark means that you able to save your time and energy for more important things in life. Like spending time with your family and friends.
