Welfare Check

Welfare Check

Welfare checks to help your loved ones stay independent

A welfare check involves a trained carer visiting the home of your loved one to check that they're ok. While they are there the carer can help with a range of household tasks, take them to medical appointments or social events, or just keep them company.

At Burley's we don't believe in an off the shelf service. We'll take the time to develop a personal care plan that helps with the things your loved one needs.

The carer can check that the house is warm and safe; ensure that your loved one has enough medication and is taking it on time; and make sure that there is food in the fridge and they are eating well.

There are a wide range of tasks our carers can help with depending on what your loved one needs. These include:

Morning visits

  • Personal hygiene and grooming
  • Dressing
  • Preparing breakfast and drinks
  • Helping with medication
  • A friendly face and companionship to start the day.

Daytime visits

  • Preparing meals and drinks
  • Domestic tasks such as cleaning, laundry and tidying
  • Shopping
  • Taking to doctor's appointments, or to social events

Evening visits

  • Preparing dinner and drinks

Building welfare checks around your needs

We will work with you to develop a home care package that's right for your loved one and the level of support they need. You can choose from visits as short as 30 minutes or longer visits where more care is needed.

Personalised care plans

A care manager will meet with you, your family and support network to understand what your loved one needs and how they would like their care to be delivered. They will then develop a personal plan that reflects this for you and your family to agree.

Continuity of care

When the personal care plan is agreed, we'll introduce the carers to your loved one. Where possible, we'll try to ensure that they see the same carer at a similar time each visit. There may be times when we have to replace carers, but we understand the benefits of continuity of care and the strong relationships that clients can build with their carers, so avoid this wherever we can.

Ongoing assessment

We regularly monitor the standard of care that your loved one receives and encourage feedback. This ensures that we're always providing the best care that we can. We take on board any comments we receive and make any changes that are necessary. We'll also review the needs of your loved one and suggest changes to their care plan if required.
