Debunking common home care myths

There are all sorts of common misconceptions when it comes to domiciliary care. Our experienced home care team is here to shed some light on the facts.

Home care is only for the elderly

One of the most common assumptions made regarding home care is that only elderly people need it. This is simply not true, and we’ve provided support for clients of all ages and with various requirements.

There are many reasons why a person may suddenly require care at home, for example, an acquired brain injury or other physical injury that has limited their movement or ability to carry out day to day tasks. We’re here to provide care and support for as long as you need us.

Home care is very expensive

The cost of home care will vary depending on several factors, for example, if you require full-time live in care or occasional support a few times a week. However, in comparison to a residential care home, our home care packages are very reasonably priced.

There are also various subsidies and discounts available that can make paying for domiciliary care more affordable for you. We’ll be able to inform you regarding benefit entitlement in the South, so don’t hesitate to contact our team for more information.

Home care strips you of your independence

Hiring a home carer doesn’t mean that you sacrifice your independence! Our home care specialists tailor a care package around your requirements and lifestyle; we never want you to feel like you need to give up any freedoms.

In fact, home care can actually help you preserve your independence for longer, allowing you to remain in the comfort of your own home and live your life on your own terms.
