Tailored Live-in support
Do you have concerns about the safety of a relative who wants to stay in their own home but whose health is declining to the point where you worry about them when you're not there?
I provide short periods of 24 hour live in care with differing levels of intervention according to need. This could be a maximum of approximately 2 weeks at a time or a rolling rota of a few days shared with other team members.
As well as providing help with self-care, nutrition and health needs, I work hard to bring meaning and structure to a person's daily life and to encourage participation in activities that they are either interested in now, or may have been before losing the ability to do them without prompting. I have a particular interest in those with declining cognitive ability, such as dementia.
I do transition work to help families find the best solution, working with the multi-disciplinary team and other parties to create the right circumstances for the person being helped
