Why is one-to-one care important?
Familiar and friendly care
Many people think care is helping people getting up, getting dressed, helping someone to eat – essentially task-based care.
With one to one care, our live in and hourly home carers have time to build a good relationship and a strong rapport with their client. To move beyond the basics of making sure their clients are warm, have eaten enough and are taking their medicine and to help them live as full a life as possible. Whether it’s a game of cards, someone to watch your favourite TV with in the evening, or somebody to accompany you on a walk or a visit to see friends. Live in or hourly care enables you to continue to enjoy life you as you choose, in the comfort of your own home.
Care that allows you space when you need it
Some people may feel concerned about a stranger coming to live with them and understandably so. The first thing is that your carer won’t feel like a stranger for long, they have been carefully selected for compatibility so you can enjoy one another’s company. However, personal space is important and our highly trained carers are very adept at understanding when you may or may not want company around you. One of the key skills of a good live-in carer is knowing when they are needed and when to fade into the background so that you can live as independently as possible.
Because our carers have time to get to know and understand you, they will be much better at picking up subtle signals and will learn to know when you want to be alone or have a natter or just prefer to sit in companionable silence.
Dedicated care in your own time
If you need live-in or hourly homecare, it is likely that some tasks will take more time than others. For instance, for many elderly people who need care at home, getting dressed or taking a bath in your 90s takes a lot longer than it did in your 20s. One of the benefits of having a one-to-one carer looking after you in your own home is that nobody else needs their help, your carer has all the time in the world to devote to your needs.
Care on your own terms
We all have days when things don’t go according to plan. We all want to be able to do what we want, when we want.
With one-to-one care your carer is there to help you live as independently as possible. They don’t have schedules to meet or lots of other clients to take their attention away from you. You can eat what you want, get up and go to bed when you want and make plans to go where you want, when you want to.
