Folkestone Residents Have an Alternative to a Care Home
For people struggling with dementia, a lack of mobility or other ailments that require personalised care, sending them to a care home is an option. But it is not the only option.
In order to empower them with a greater sense of self-worth and independence it might be a good idea to provide them with the care, supervision, and support they need right in the comfort and familiarity of their own home.
Among the many benefits live-in home care can provide where a care home may fall short include:
- Maintaining their daily routines
- Ensuring regular contact with the people who are important to them
- Allowing them to continue living with their pets
- Ensuring they receive the companionship they need
- Giving them a greater sense of dignity by allowing them to remain the master of their domain
If you feel live-in home care could benefit your loved one who, due to injury or illness, requires special dedicated personalised care, please call us at 020 3870 4220 - or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org - and find out what kind of care options could best suit your needs.
Hometouch Is Regulated by the Care Quality Commission
For agencies providing live-in home care, oversight and accountability are key to ensuring the care that is managed adheres to the highest standards of safety, effectiveness, and responsiveness. It is with this conviction that Hometouch has voluntarily submitted to reviews and inspections conducted by the CQC (Care Quality Commision), an independent regulator of health and social care in England.
The CQC routinely inspect, review and check up on the live-in home care we manage. They have given our service, our administrative staff, and our live-in carer high marks. You can read a detailed summary of their inspections here.
Hometouch founder, Dr Jamie Wilson, a former NHS dementia specialist, believed patients - especially those suffering from dementia - weren’t getting the care they needed nor were they being treated with the dignity they deserved. He founded Hometouch to bring about a much needed change to the live-in care options available in England.
What is live-in care?
Live-in care is when a carer lives with the person receiving care in their home. From companionship care all the way to round-the-clock complex care, a live-in carer can provide one-to-one support in your loved one’s own home. This is especially important for people living with dementia, who may become increasingly confused or distressed in unfamiliar surroundings.
A dedicated live-in carer can provide your loved one with more individual care than they’d receive at a residential home. So whether it’s a day out on weekends, or fish and chips in front of the TV on a Friday evening, your loved one can carry on doing the things they enjoy. And because the carer is staying on-site, it’s often cheaper than a care home too. To find out more about the cost of care where you live, take a look at our page on understanding the cost of care.
At hometouch, we help people live happily, safely and with dignity in their own homes. If you think live-in care could be right for your loved one, contact a hometouch Care Advisor today.
