Elderly Care Service at Home in Bristol

We see every day the difference it makes to our clients to stay in a familiar and comfortable environment, so we do all that we can to enable our clients in Bristol to live at home.

Our Elderly Care Service is centred absolutely on a personal approach and a commitment to the highest standards of quality care; we believe that our elderly clients deserve professional support at home.

Factors such as health and disability can have a varying impact on the ability of an individual to continue making the lifestyle choices they are used to. This is why Premier Homecare careworkers are trained to a high professional standard to support individuals with the challenges of everyday life ranging from personal care such as washing and getting dressed, to domestic care duties such as laundry and cleaning.

Dementia Care and Support Bristol

At Premier Homecare we understand whilst some symptoms are common to many people living with dementia, each person’s experience of the disease and how they cope with it will be unique to that individual.

When a person with dementia finds that their memory and reasoning are declining, they're likely to feel anxious, stressed and scared; naturally this can be very frustrating and upsetting for them. A person with dementia, can be helped to feel more secure by creating a regular, safe, daily routine in a relaxed environment, where they are encouraged and not criticised.

Involving the person with dementia in everyday tasks may make that person feel useful and improve their sense of self-worth; however, we respect and understand as their dementia progresses, these tasks may become harder for them to manage independently….that is why Premier Homecare is on hand to provide additional support when the time or need arises.

Our approach in supporting someone living with dementia (and of course, their family) is to offer continued support in a sensitive and non-critical manner. At Premier Homecare we appreciate it can be very important for theperson with dementia to feel they are still of worth and valued.

 

Examples of our approach when caring for someone with dementia are:

We’ll try to do things with the person, and not just do things for them.

We’ll be very patient-giving them plenty of time, supporting and caring for the person with reassurance and encouragement.

We’ll help the person to achieve small, manageable tasks, thereby helping to raise their self-esteem.

We’ll think through ways to make things a little easier for the person living with dementia. For example, for someone in the early stages of dementia we may look at using memory aids around the home to help the person remember.

 

Many people with dementia will still enjoy their hobbies or interests. Our carers are able to become involved in these whether it is accompany a person on a walk, or provide companionship and interaction by participating in a familiar board game, or looking through old family photographs.

If the person with dementia was previously very sociable and outgoing, or if they have a large family, they may really enjoy visits at home from one or two family members or friends-we can help organise these visits, and liaise with family and friends.

 

Premier Homecare's Dementia Care Team can:

Help someone living with dementia with everyday tasks in a safe environment

Maintain good health and nutrition in someone with dementia

Help deal with incontinence issues

Assist with washing, bathing or showering

Help with dressing and personal grooming

Make or change beds

Assist with preparation and assistance at meal times

Provide companionship and interaction

 

Importantly, we can also help those caring for someone with dementia. This role can be difficult at times as family members and friends try to come to terms with the effects dementia has on them. Having regular outside support from Premier Homecare to allow the carer of a person with dementia to take a break can help the carer retain healthy life-balance and have a better relationship with the person they are caring for.

 

Companionship Services at Home

Families naturally lead busy lives with numerous responsibilities; often people live long distances from loved ones all of which adds to the challenge of ensuring the risk of an older person experiencing loneliness is reduced. At Premier Homecare we appreciate loneliness can facilitate a difficult cycle of behaviour. An older person who might once have been confident and independent, but has found themselves in an isolated situation, may become withdrawn and wary of other people after prolonged periods of minimal contact with anyone. Loneliness can lead to depression and anxiety, and even affect physical health. The value of companionship care services therefore, can never be underestimated.

A Premier Homecare Companion Carer is there to become a ‘professional friend’ to whoever they are caring for, whilst enjoying day to day responsibilities and activities together. Having a Companion Carer is often about just someone to talk to, whether that is about day to day things, the latest news, reminiscing about the past, discussing films and books, or even chatting about family history. A Companion Carer will also offer help with travel arrangements, assist with journeys to and from appointments, and accompany a person to visits with family, friends, and neighbours. Other activities could include watching films together, planning interesting outings and trips, and taking advantage of any other exciting opportunity that will allow an elderly person to enjoy themselves…Companionship Care Services can therefore be incredibly important in helping a person to continue to enjoy the things in life important to them by keeping feelings of loneliness and isolation at bay.
