There are various ways to support us, whether its volunteering at our club sessions, becoming a member or simply giving a donationHow you can help
Crossroads Care’s specialist senior carer is a guest in your home. Our staff are used to working in people’s homes during difficult times, and will do their best to make you feel comfortable about their presence in your home.
Our staff provide practical and emotional advice and support for you and the person caring for you. They have up to date training in and experience of looking after people at home, including moving and handling people safely.
It is natural for a person to feel anxious or depressed when they are ill. These feelings may be worse towards the end of a person’s life and may not be easy to recognise.
People who are ill can feel isolated or fear abandonment, especially if they have a period of respite care away from home, and may need reassurance that they won’t be left alone.
Your family, friends and especially those caring for you may also find themselves feeling sad or depressed. If they are finding things difficult, you could encourage them to seek help or support for themselves just as they would for you.
The person who cares for you can also talk to the Crossroads Care specialist senior carer about their feelings and emotional needs. The Crossroads Care specialist senior carer is there for you and the people close to you.
We understand it can be confusing to have many strangers visiting your home to provide care and assistance. Crossroads Care staff must always show their identity card when they arrive, and wear a uniform and name badge. If they do not show or wear these items, please ask them to do so.
