Our mission at Carewatch is to provide high quality care outcomes for vulnerable people who want to live at home, independently
Enjoy the benefits of support at home, with our domiciliary care services
If you, or a loved one are of advanced age, or find performing everyday tasks difficult due to an illness, injury or disability; our home care visits can provide the extra support needed to live independently at home.
The benefits of domiciliary care can be far reaching. By helping out with tasks, such as dressing, cooking and domestic chores - our carers can make your daily routine that much easier. Visiting care doesn’t just provide assistance, it can also improve self-esteem by increasing independence and reducing your reliance on relatives.
Get in touch with us today to find out how our home visits can help you.
In the following video, Tracy, one of our home care workers explains how we help Jack twice daily at home.
Personal home care
We provide personal home care to help with the more intimate or personal daily routines which may have become more difficult
Our personal home care services support the elderly and frail, physically disabled, learning disabled, or those with mental health illness with personal daily routines at home that may be impossible to do alone, or have become more difficult.
This kind of support can range from:
- Getting out of bed in the morning
- Help with washing and dressing
- Assistance with maintaining personal appearance
- Help and support with toileting/incontinence
- Getting settled in for the evening and going to bed
Dignity and Respect
We always preserve the dignity of our customer, ensuring that we take a warm and respectful approach to personal home care routines.
Our service ensures that people have privacy when they need and want it, treating them as equals, respecting people's personal preferences, lifestyle and care choices.
Supporting independence and choice
Whererever possible, and where it is safe to do so, we will let our customers do things for themselves.
We encourage independence and confidence in being independent.
Our home care team will always respect those we support, offering a personalised service, and taking into account their personal lifestyle, culture, choices, and wishes.
Practical home help
Our practical home help service assists those who need help with day to day house work, meals, or getting out and about
We offer practical home help for the elderly, those with disabilities, with mental illness, and anyone who struggles to get practical tasks done in the household. Housework may become more difficult to do, or take much longer.
We support by assisting, or doing practical tasks which may include:
- Vacuuming the home or cleaning floors
- Tidying and dusting
- General cleaning or one off cleaning tasks
- Preparing and cooking meals
- Doing the washing up
-Going to the shops with you, or for you
- Support with managing household bills
- Assistance with managing medicines
- Pet care like feeding, walking the dog, or cleaning pet homes and toilets
Many people combine some practical home help with some personal home care as often, it is both that are needed.
Getting out and about
We also help with arranging and planning a trip out, visits to friends and family, and support with social activities like attending a local coffee morning, social clubs, bingo, or the cinema. Our support is provided in the way that suits you, with personal care planning, ensuring that we respect people's personal preferences, lifestyle and care choices.
If you or a loved one has an event to attend such as a wedding or a funeral and will need assistance throughout the day, we can help.
We understand that often, it is not just help at home that is needed but also friendship and companionship.
