My mother has dementia and sometimes when I call, she says that she feels frightened, confused, lonely and her appearance isn’t what it used to be. I live in Scotland and with work commitments and travel restrictions I can’t visit as much as they would like to and there are no other family members close by.
 
After carrying out research on the web I discovered this award-winning company that has received “Outstanding” by the CQC and they are ranked first by an independent customer reviews homecare site. They provide a non-medical, relationship led care and companionship service to mainly older vulnerable adults in their own home. They understand that everyone is different, so they offer care packages tailored to an individual’s needs. They provide a minimum of 1-hour visits, so the CAREGivers never feel rushed.
 
After completing an assessment of my mother’s needs, they came up with an individual care package to support my mother with various daily tasks and personal care for an hour or so a few times a week. They carefully matched a team of Caregivers with my mother and introduced them to my mother.
 
Claire is one of the care team who supports my mother to get out of bed in the morning and run her a shower to the right temperature. My mother can bathe herself, but she needs a little support to undress and get into the shower. She also needs reassurance that someone is not too far away if she struggles to get out of the shower. She also has some help to dry her back, help her get dressed, and brush her hair.
 
Claire makes her a cup of tea and some breakfast, gets her medication ready, and reminds her to take it, Claire runs the vacuum cleaner around and does a little dusting. There is nothing worse than looking at those cobwebs you can’t reach.
 
My mother understands that Claire can’t stay all day with her because she has other people to visit. However, she does look forward to Claire’s next visit.
 
I am impressed with the warmth and empathy all the Caregivers show my mother. They have only been supporting her for a few weeks, but I can already see how my mother is benefiting from the continuity of care which she receives.
