We have teams of trained carer support workers who are specifically trained to deliver a higher level of support in the following areas:
- Supporting people who have palliative care needs, including end of life care. This may include personal care, medication administration and/or overnight care.
- Supporting people with advanced stages of Dementia (including those with a palliative diagnosis) who may require a more flexible and enhanced level of care and understanding.
- Supporting carers of people with Dementia who may be experiencing a crisis which could potentially mean that the person with Dementia may need to be admitted to hospital or into a nursing home. By providing a temporary, emergency service in the person’s own home, this would give an opportunity to stabilise the situation and prevent the crisis developing further.
