All our carers are trained to CQC requirements and Skills for Care Induction standards, and have an advanced DBS clearance. They are fully able and happy to help support your loved one with personal care needs such as bathing, shaving, oral care, dressing, toileting, continence care, feeding, assistance with medication and help getting up or going to bed.
According to Age UK, 1.4 million older people in the UK are often lonely. Sometimes all we need to live happily in our own home is someone to listen, care and understand. We only recruitment the most compassionate individuals who are experienced in providing elderly people and disabled adults with much-needed companionship. Our companionship carers can provide this in care visits, or as a live-in carer if the needs are more advanced.
We can provide complex home care services for client's with substantial and ongoing healthcare needs. Our live-in and visiting carers are experienced in caring for adults with advanced and changing needs. Our complex care clients are generally referred to us form NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups, independent case management companies, other local authorities, or they are privately funded.
Although many of our clients are elderly, our carers are fully-trained to provided care and companionship to adults living with a disability. We understand that, for those that require extra support with their disability, being able to retain as much independence and comfort in their life as possible is very important for both physical and mental well-being.
As the care plans we create are bespoke to each of our client's; our carers often help more than one elderly client in their home. Our visiting carers and live-in carers can both provide couple care. It is a very cost effective solution for care as you are not having to pay twice as much for your care provision as would normally be the case in a residential care home setting.
We are very experienced in providing support to clients who are at end-of-life and wish to stay at home for the remainder of their lives. The compassion and empathy our carers show is second-to-none and they are well-versed in providing the necessary support with the right level of sensitivity at a difficult time. Many of the loved ones of our end-of-life clients tell us that they couldn't imagine going through this difficult time without the help of one of our palliative carers.
As we get older, daily tasks such as shopping and domestic work can become difficult to complete without assistance. Our fantastic carers will help with this and turn a chore into a pleasurable experience with their caring nature and positivity. Our carers can also help with advanced needs and more personal tasks such as bathing and dressing.
At Genuine Care we know that care can be required at any time of the day or night. That's why we offer overnight care. Our live-in carers can be on hand to wake during the night if they are needed, however, if night calls are common we would suggest introducing a specialist night carer into your care plan. Overnight carers will visit your home during the night to provide complete peace of mind.
