Whether it’s extra help with housekeeping, preparing and cooking meals, personal care, getting around the house and avoiding falls, administering medication, or simply a friendly face and companionship, our carers know just how much or how little to step in with to support independent living. Best of all, we can be as flexible as you or your loved one needs us to be, changing with needs and requirements, from Hourly care-Day support-Stay at home support.
Caremark’s elderly care and support services offer a convenient, popular and affordable alternative to residential care.
Our expertly trained carers provide reliable, friendly and understanding support that is flexible and tailored to your or your loved one's needs and wishes. We know just how important this can be, not only for the elderly person receiving the care but also for those closest to them. It allows family members to have the ultimate peace of mind, reassuring them that when they are not together their loved one is receiving the highest quality support and care. We treat our clients as if they are our own family and our personalised approach is designed to meet the wishes and requirements of all involved in their wellbeing.
We encourage independent living wherever possible as we know just how important it is to self-esteem and confidence. We ensure this by carrying out tasks and activities 'with' the people we look after, rather than taking over and doing things 'for' them. We find that this approach helps older people to maintain their dignity, nurturing a sense of purpose and wellbeing
When older people have problems with mobility it can lead to potential isolation and feelings of loneliness as they find it harder to get out and about. This can become a vicious cycle, with leaving the house becoming a huge mountain to climb. As our carers actively encourage and facilitate social activities, like engaging in the local community and pursuing hobbies, we find our clients becoming happier and more confident. Our input can have a huge effect, improving mental health and generally making life more enjoyable.
When we say we want to help you or your friend or relative to stay independent we don’t just mean helping with daily chores and tasks, we also encourage and help facilitate hobbies and social events and can assist with medication management and household bills. We can even attend doctor’s and specialist’s appointments with you or your loved one. Activities that might seem daunting will be that bit easier when tackled with one of our compassionate carers.
Our visits can be repeated throughout the day to ensure you or your family member has all you/ they need to feel comfortable. Often just knowing that someone reliable is coming to help does wonders for a person’s independence and general happiness. And for those close to you or your loved one our services can offer tremendous peace of mind, especially with regards accidents or emergencies.
To ensure we meet you or your loved one’s needs we work with you/them to devise a personalised support plan. This is approved before we commence and is regularly updated as needs change. We take into account input from family and any healthcare professionals working with you or your friend or relative. Our care assistants receive professional training in issues particular to the elderly, including mobility and prompting medication.
Before we assign you or your loved one a carer we will get an understanding of your/their interests and pastimes so that we can match our carers for the best possible social interaction and friendship.
