Personal Care & Support Services
Personal Care Services
Our Personal care service is tailored to your specific needs and budget. We provide compassionate and continuity-oriented care, with all of our Carers fully trained in personal care. We treat all our clients with respect & dignity, which is essential for providing care in this area.
Our care includes activities that relate to maintaining personal appearance and hygiene, including toileting, dressing and grooming, washing or bathing, preparing for bed, and personal hygiene. We assist with activities like grooming support, cleaning teeth, shaving, foot care, and applying creams or make-up.
Each of our carers is an expert at providing personal care discreetly and respectfully. They undergo extensive training to learn the importance of enabling dignity & independence at all times. Even though carers are trained to provide all aspects of care, there may be some things you'd prefer to do for yourself. A good carer will always give you space when you want it and encourage your independence wherever you can.
We offer personal care services that can be combined with our short or long-term home care services, depending on your needs. Some of these services include help with basic needs like bathing, dressing, and grooming, as well as more specialized care for conditions like dementia or Alzheimer's disease. We work closely with clients & their families to ensure that everyone is comfortable and satisfied with the care we provide.
