Care For Older People
Everyday tasks can become difficult as we get older, more so with long term illness. Help with the simplest of tasks can make your live far more comfortable.
Our support workers have experience working with older people, including those with long term conditions. For example, if you have suffered a stroke we will match your specific needs to an appropriate group of support workers experienced in helping stroke sufferers.
Our support workers are trained to use moving and handling equipment such as hoists, bath chairs and slide sheets. We can provide two support workers if required, or we can work along side a main carer, such as a family member.
For further information on goal setting please see Individual Budgets and Complete Care Services.
Examples of how we help older people
The aim at Complete Care Services is to treat everyone as an individual. We will tailor our service to meet your needs, here are a few examples of how we can help:.
Independence. That you may need just that extra bit of support to remain independent, such as having somebody to call round once a week to help with your washing or ironing, or maybe help with the cleaning.
Help at meal times. To assist with meal preparation or to make you a meal. Yourself or your family member may have a poor appetite and require a support worker to stay with them and encourage them to eat. Or you, or your family member may need help to eat; this is also something we can arrange.
Taking medication. All of our support workers are trained to administer medication in tablet and cream form. Some of our support workers are also able to administer eye drops.
Shopping. Our support workers can collect your pension and do your shopping, you can accompany the carers or stay at home; this is your choice.
Personal Care. Help and support with personal care such as helping you to the use the toilet or commode, help to get out of bed in the morning and washed and dressed, assistance to shower or bath, or assistance to go back to bed, then our support workers will provide you with a first-class service.
Complete Care Services does not just provide a 'care' service; we are concerned with a person's holistic needs. This is why we use goal setting; this gives you the opportunity to set your own goals, which our support workers will help you to achieve. These goals could be anything you wish, see below for a few examples:
All of these examples give only a brief outline, in reality the support workers would take the time to work with you and break these goals down into manageable steps.
