Personal care tailored to your individual needs
We can help with Personal Care for everyday or just small amounts from time-to-time
Illness, age or infirmity can make it difficult to carry out all of the personal care tasks that you once handled with ease. We understand that this can be frustrating or embarrassing.
Our qualified, respectful Care Workers are experienced in helping all kinds of people with their personal care. We appreciate the importance of respecting your dignity at all times. We will help you to retain as much independence as possible. The Care Workers are understanding and sympathetic, without being patronising.
They know that every customer is an individual, with unique personal needs, preferences and values. Our support arrangements will be personalised to your own requirements. This can involve your family members if you wish. Rest assured, we will only provide the services that you have specifically asked for in your care and support plan.
Time to recharge your batteries
We specialise in providing respite home care and support to those caring for someone else.
When you’re looking after a loved one or family member it can be rewarding, but it can also be extremely demanding and exhausting. Taking time out is important for your health and wellbeing, and even just a few days rest can be enough to recharge your energy levels and enthusiasm.
Personalised to your specific needs - Live the life you want
Live-in care is our specialised care service for people who need care and support with day-to-day life, but also want to live as independently as possible.
A popular alternative to living in a residential care home, our live-in care service enables you or your loved one to receive tailored, professional support 24-hours-a-day, at home.
Our compassionate carers can help with:
- personal care
- shopping, housekeeping and cooking
- meeting dietary and nutritional needs
- companionship and emotional support - many carers become more like friends
- daily activities and accessing local support
- using mobility aids
- administering medication
- attending doctor, dental or other appointments
- help with household bills and general admin
- help with pet care, dog walking and feeding
Dementia and Alzheimer’s care at home
We’re here to help
Helping someone you love to cope with the challenges that come with dementia and memory loss can be exhausting, upsetting and isolating. But Caremark is here to offer practical support, advice and reassurance. We can provide professional and fully trained care assistants for day care at home as little or as often as you need it, as well as respite care and live-in care.
We also have plenty of experience to share with you, enabling you to feel better equipped to deal with any situation that might arise. We can let you know about useful outside resources too, including details of support networks and local dementia groups that you and your loved one might find helpful.
Familiarity, regular routines and being cared for at home can slow the progression of many common dementia symptoms. Gone are the days when the only option facing someone living with a progressed form of dementia was residential care.
Helping to overcome loneliness
Did you know that, according to Age UK, nearly a million older people in the UK go for more than a month without speaking to anyone? Not only is loneliness and isolation a huge problem, it has also been associated with health issues such as depression, sleep problems, hypertension, stress and mental health problems.
At Caremark we strongly believe that no one should feel loneliness or isolation, which is why we’ve created our companionship care service.
Assistance with taking your medication
If you or your loved one is taking medication - particularly a few different sorts - it can be challenging to manage. Caremark is here to take the stress out of medication management and organising prescriptions.
Our carers are only too happy to manage your or your family member’s medication and liaise with doctors and pharmacists to order more, or we can assist in prompting you to take your medication and simply be there for vital extra support.
Shopping & Meal Preparation
We understand the importance of a good diet
Regular, balanced meals are essential to maintain good health.
Unfortunately, some older people and those with physical or mental difficulties are not always good at (or capable of) looking after themselves in this way. That's where Caremark can help. We offer a personal service for food shopping and meal preparation.
It's so easy for certain people to overlook regular meals. Often finding food preparation a chore or too difficult, or simply forgetting to eat. Others know they need to eat regularly, but find it too much of a struggle to go to the trouble. So they end up eating all the wrong things, like cakes, biscuits, ready meals and other unhealthy choices. These are fine as a treat. But healthy, nutritious meals need care to plan and prepare.
Say goodbye to your chores!
Clients of Caremark can benefit from many different care services on offer. This can include those which do not involve personal care. Domestic care is a typical example of what we can provide. These options can be equally valuable in helping people to maintain their independence.
Even our clients who don't need much assistance with their personal care are usually delighted to learn that they can receive help with some of those tedious routine jobs, such as cleaning, laundry and ironing. These tasks can be very physically demanding. So it's good for clients to get relief from the pressure of these never-ending tasks.
Some of our clients simply cannot manage these activities. For older clients, it can be a great help to hand the jobs over to someone else. Delegating these tasks to Caremark means that you able to save your time and energy for more important things in life. Like spending time with your family and friends.
Meeting friends and making new ones
Meeting both new and familiar faces can have a positive effect on the contentment of someone being cared for at home on a long-term basis. For someone undergoing a short rehabilitation period, getting out and about and having visitors can help speed up the recovery process.
In the care plans we draw up with our clients, we always try to incorporate some elements of socialising, catered to each person.
Although everyone has unique needs, and physical abilities may differ greatly, we find that everyone benefits from occasional (and preferably regular) socialising. A social event can be something to look forward to, enjoy at the time and then look back on and reflect on.
If someone is wheelchair-bound, that's not a barrier to us. Even someone who is permanently bedridden should be able to receive visitors at home from time-to-time. This brings a little of the outside world into their life and can make a big difference.
