Companionship: A Surprising Benefit of Personal Care

When it comes to personal care, we often focus on the care package and the practical tasks like chores and hygiene. But there’s another crucial element that often goes unnoticed: companionship.

For those who live alone, having someone to spend time with during the day can make a world of difference. Just one or two hours of caregiving can give valuable company and bring a smile to a loved one’s face. This can help fight loneliness and provide reassurance that a friendly face will visit them.

When we write the care plan, we understand your preferences. So, when you use our matching services, we try to find the right caregiver for your needs and preferences.

My Mum’s Story 

Margaret, a 79-year-old woman with high blood pressure and mild forgetfulness, faced daily challenges such as difficulty bending down & changing clothes. Recognising the need for personal care, Margaret’s daughter noticed her struggles with basic tasks like putting on shoes & socks.

 

Margaret’s limitations included forgetfulness, reluctance to have a proper wash, and fear of falling. The family observed signs like unchanged clothes and minimal laundry, prompting the need for professional care. The preference was established for personal care every other day, eventually transitioning to daily visits for three weeks to assist with medication, meals, and personal care.

The family chose Burleys Home Care based on positive online reviews, awards, and compliance with CQC regulations. The decision was reinforced during a home visit by a care manager, who listened to their concerns, provided reassurance, and crafted a personalised care plan.

Burleys Home Care provided personal care, meal preparation, and medication assistance. The care plan initially focused on understanding Margaret’s routine, gradually evolving to address specific needs, such as medication management. The care team exhibited professionalism, compassion, and expertise in delivering tailored care.

Daily check-ins by Burleys Home Care gave Margaret’s daughter peace of mind, knowing her mother had a caregiver providing companionship and assistance. The family appreciated the open communication through an app, ensuring they were promptly informed of any concerns.

Margaret now anticipates the daily visits, finding comfort in the companionship and assistance provided. The shower routine with the caregiver has not only improved her well-being but also strengthened the mother-daughter relationship. Margaret’s newfound ability to engage in conversations about her youth reflects unexpected positive outcomes.

Quote from Sarah Daughter

Burleys Home Care has transformed my mother’s life. I can now focus on being her daughter, knowing she has a reliable companion. The caregivers are amazing, making a significant impact on her daily routine.”

Testimonials From Margaret

Having a caregiver like Lisa has brought joy back into my life. I never thought I’d rediscover my passion for painting. Lisa’s encouragement has been a blessing, and I’m grateful for Burleys Home Care.

The importance regulated personal care

For personal care, you need a caregiver who is skilled, reliable, compassionate, and understanding. This is where having a regulated Care Quality commission caregiver becomes crucial.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is an independent regulator of Health and Social Care services in England. They monitor home care agencies to ensure the safety and quality of care provided to clients.

They watch closely, check thoroughly, and maintain control over these agencies. Their main goal is to guarantee that clients receive safe, good, and high-quality care. By choosing a CQC regulated caregiver, you can be confident that you or your loved one will receive the best possible care.
