There are a range of tasks that our care workers will be expected to undertake to help our service users lead a more fulfilling lifestyle. Some of these include:
Caring for people is not just about personal hygiene and care needs. Companionship is important to help our service users to not only avoid feeling lonely, but also to help perform simple tasks and to make them feel safe.
Escort to appointments
Our service users will regularly have appointments with doctors, hospitals and other places. Often they will be unable to attend these appointments by their own means and our workers are required to assist them. All of our care workers are insured to carry their service users in their own cars.
Many service users will have full time carers, like a family member, for example. The carers will often be worried about leaving the house and leaving the service user alone. Our sitting service means that our care workers will sit in with the service user and allow their full time carer or to go out and socialise whilst having peace of mind.
Outings and hobbies
Our care staff will encourage service users to partake in hobbies or visit places of interest to them. Staying active and doing things that they enjoy is important and allows them to lead a more fulfilling lifestyle. Our care staff will accompany services users to lunch meetings, attend social clubs or plan outings. This will allow them to have much needed social interaction throughout the day.
Sometimes service users may be unable to leave their home, which can lead to them becoming lonely. This can actually lead to a deterioration in their mental health. We provide a service where our care workers can stay with them to provide conversation and company.
