Care for older people

Respect, dignity and personalised care for older people

People are now living longer than ever before, which means that care for older people is becoming much more relevant. We can help ease the challenges of caring for relatives and loved ones, and provide the comfort and support they need while respecting their independence.

Care for Older People

As healthcare improves, people are living longer. This is wonderful for families who have more time and opportunity to enjoy each other’s company and live rewarding lives, but it can also put pressure on loved ones, especially when complex needs are involved.

Older people's care requirements often depend on their unique situation, but they generally include long-term or multiple conditions, such as heart problems, diabetes, osteoporosis, arthritis, epilepsy, and the needs of an older person who has suffered a stroke. They could also include mobility and continence difficulties, mental health issues, or dementia.car

Another issue – and fear – facing many older people in modern times is that of loneliness. As people grow older they often become nervous about meeting new friends, or calling somebody on the telephone. It is also often difficult to accept that a need for independence may be compromised by reduced physical or mental ability.

Burley’s Home Care offers flexible home care for older people to help them lead full, happy and healthy lives. We have highly-experienced and understanding staff on-hand who can offer domestic assistance, personal and social support, respite and dementia care. We can also be there for companionship, a welfare check with a friendly face.

We strive to understand the needs and wishes of each individual, and put together a plan that takes into account their preferred routines and activities. We aim to provide older people with the care, comfort and support they need to give them independence, while giving their families absolute peace of mind.
