Here at Westwood Care Group, we pride ourselves on delivering the highest standard of homecare services to elderly and vulnerable people across Hull and East Yorkshire.
Our comprehensive offering brings complete peace of mind to our service users as well as their family members, friends and neighbours, as we’re dedicated to providing professional care with a personal touch.
If you’re new to homecare, you may be wondering how it works and what’s included. To shed some light on the topic and help you make an informed decision, in this blog we’re talking about the benefits of homecare and what it involves.
We visit you in your own home
Professional homecare is the perfect option for people who need a helping hand yet don’t want to move into a residential care home. The service enables you to remain in your beloved home and retain your independence, with our support workers carrying out specific tasks that you find difficult to manage.
Homecare is ideally suited to individuals with physical disabilities or who simply need some help with everyday household jobs such as cooking, cleaning, preparing medication and going out to buy groceries. Whatever you need assistance with, our support workers will take on the responsibility and ensure that everything is done on time, every time.
Homecare for people with dementia
Many of our service users have mild dementia, which means that they can still live in their own homes but require professional support. Studies have shown that remaining in familiar surroundings can prove beneficial, as simple things like wallpaper, furniture and decorations can calm a person with dementia and prevent them from becoming unnecessarily confused and frightened.
Our support workers are fully trained so that they can care for people with dementia with confidence and in the most appropriate way, making it a smooth and stress-free arrangement.
We deliver person-centred care
We’re committed to providing person-centred care that takes into consideration any particular needs and preferences of the individual service user. Aside from making our homecare highly customised and adaptable, this also means that our service users gain a friendly companion who they can chat with during regular visits.
Human interaction is incredibly important, especially for people who live alone and don’t go out as often as they used to. That’s why the service user is always the core focus of our one-to-one support, resulting in homecare that’s as beneficial to mental health and wellbeing as it is to the cleanliness and tidiness of the home itself.
Our services are wide-ranging
As part of your homecare visits, our support workers can carry out any and all of the following:
