Research consistently shows that the best care outcomes for elderly people occur when they are able to stay in their own home, in familiar surroundings, with maximum independence. Live-in carers can facilitate this lifestyle and ensure that the elderly remain in their home and avoid the disruption and challenges involved in moving into residential care.
Enabling older people to stay in their own home means that they can remain with their spouse or partner, pets, friends, and neighbours and decide when they get up, eat, go out and rest. This can be especially important if they suffer from dementia.
Questions to ask when considering live-in care
Do they need assistance during the day to remember to properly take their medications or to eat healthy meals?
Do you worry about their safety at home while they are alone?
Do they seem depressed?
Do you worry that they are unhappy or bored sitting at home all day?
Do you worry about their developing health needs?
Do you want help to be able to keep them at home as long as possible?
Do they lack regular company?
Dementia care can also help to reduce the severity of symptoms such as anxiety, depression, and withdrawal from social life. Provided in conjunction with familiar routine and memory care activities, specialist care can help maintain your loved one’s dignity and independence whist providing mentally stimulating activities to help limit changing behavioural and cognitive symptoms.
Questions to ask when considering dementia care
Do the clinical symptoms and signs of dementia match those of your loved one?
Has your loved one been medically diagnosed and shown signs they need extra help?
Are you struggling to provide care for your loved one?
Have the hours a week you are caring been increasing?
How much help do you think you need at present?
Nissi Home Care will connect you with carers who have expertise in working with terminally ill clients, in hospices, and with palliative care professionals. The carers work to maintain client comfort and dignity throughout these later stages of life. We will also work to find a carer to meet your loved one’s health and social needs as well as their personality.
Learning Disability Care
We understand how important this type of care is for the million-plus people in the UK with a learning disability including 800,000 with autism. These disorders exist on a spectrum and as such the needs of each person is as diverse as the community itself.
As your loved ones get older they may need help with their daily activities or need company throughout the day. If you are their primary carer and have family, work, or social commitments so need some help looking after them, we can support you in providing that.
This includes home help and companionship and providing assistance with personal care, including bathing, shaving, oral care, toileting and dressing. The carer can also assist with mobility, including moving and handling transfers, as well as management of diet and medication.
A specialist carer provides a tailored service depending on the needs of an individual. This allows someone to carry on living an independent life, while ensuring personal and medical needs are met. This can be provided on a part- or full-time basis and includes care appropriate to individuals with Alzheimer’s, dementia, cancer, mobility problems, disability, and terminal illnesses.
Children & Young People
We have carers trained to provide for children and young people who are learning-disabled or have other special needs. This supports the family in their own home, relieving their burden of care for the affected person.
