Care Packages and Costs

In this day and age ‘care costs’ are becoming a fact of life for many people. We are living longer and our family is not always available to assist, often living in different cities or indeed other parts of the world, and neighbours are not on hand as they once were. This has left somewhat of a dilemma for both family members and the person who needs care; we can help.

There may be funding available, and we can certainly help if this is the case. However, private care is becoming more common place, and most people are now paying for the care themselves. We will always point you in the right direction regards any possible funding open to you, even help with the completion of forms and attending meetings if you need us to! It’s all part of our service to you as one of our clients.

 

Tele Care Calls – from £5

We understand that it can be the daily phone call that makes all the difference for many people who are suffering from loneliness or confusion. It can also be very difficult for family members to know that their loved one is suffering and we hope to relieve this pressure a little for everyone concerned.

Our Tele Care Call offers not only a general ‘chit chat,’ but we can also double check medications have been taken or prompt your loved one to remember an event or to cook/eat their meal etc. Many things we take for granted can be confusing once we get older, and loneliness can be devastating.

Additional service: We are more than happy to offer a double up service running alongside our Tele Care Call if it should transpire that the person we are calling needs us to visit them for any reason, we can always attend the person for an additional charge *see emergency call outs. This gives peace of mind for the loved ones and our clients, knowing that we can be there quickly to sort out any issues.
