OUR PERSONAL CARE SERVICE EXPLAINED
When faced with illness or immobility, it can be a struggle to carry out everyday activities that you may have once performed with ease. Strand Nursing’s discreet personal care service is designed to support you with your day-to-day living, as well as providing you with the encouragement and emotional support that you may need to remain living independently.
Our service is built around your individual requirements and can include help with your morning and evening routines, bathing, dressing, continence care, medication prompts and meal preparation. We can take care of whatever you need to keep you living independently.
Maintaining your dignity is of paramount importance to us, which is why our Strand Carers will ensure you feel comfortable at all times.
Our Personal Care Service
We understand that every one of our clients is unique and will have different preferences regarding the level of support that they will need. As a result, wherever possible, our Carers will encourage you to make your own choices about your daily needs and support requirements.
In order to provide you with a care service that matches your care requirements exactly, we will arrange for a member of our Care Team to visit you and carry out a full assessment of your individual circumstances and needs. Following this visit, we will be able to provide you with a fully costed proposal for your care package. For personal care, this can include;
If you require support with your bathing requirements, our Carers can assist you with getting in and out of the bath or shower safely, as well as helping you wash and dry. Should you be able to bathe independently, your Carer can simply sit with you and offer support when needed, giving you peace of mind that someone is there to ensure your safety.
Getting dressed in the morning, fastening buttons and tying laces are simple processes for most people, however, for individuals with reduced independence such things can become impossible tasks. If you need help getting dressed and undressed, you can rely on our Carers to provide support to make things easier for you.
Our Strand Carers are able to support both your urinary and faecal continence and take extra care to preserve your dignity at all times. Your Carer can help you to get to and from the toilet and where required will monitor your personal hygiene in order to ensure your health and comfort.
We can provide you with support at all aspects of your meal times. Our Carers can assist with your weekly shop, help with the preparation of your meals, and support you to manage the food in your house.
You may sometimes forget to take your prescribed medication, or may struggle to take it the correct way which could put your health at serious risk. Our Carers are able to alleviate this worry by prompting you to take your medication and ensure that you’re taking the right dosage at the right time.
