Long term conditions
We are specialists in long-term neurological conditions, such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s
Our experience with caring for those with these types of conditions means we know what to expect and can help you, and your family, manage living with condition. We can liaise with your GP or specialist consultant (with your permission) to ensure your care complements the medical help you are receiving from them.
It can be difficult to anticipate exactly what sort of care you’ll need and we can help to work this out as part of your care assessment.
We’ll review your care plan regularly to ensure the level of care you receive is always meeting your needs.
The help we offer for long-term conditions
Our care extends beyond the personal and medical, we can help with more general tasks, as well as providing companionship to those who are often alone. Our services cover many, many things, but here’s an idea of the type of help we offer:
- All aspects of personal care
- Psychological support with Dementia
- Support with medication
- Support with mobility
- Meal preparation
- Ensuring nutrition and fluid intake needs are met
- Arranging and taking to appointments, such as Doctors, Dentist, Chiropodist and hairdressers
- General housekeeping
- Assistance on trips outside the home
- Help with pets, such as feeding and arranging vet appointments
The frequency and duration of your care visits will depend on the level of support you need, and may change as the condition develops. You may need several visits per day, or just one or two a week.
“Following an accident 2 years ago, my 99 year old mother who lived with us at our home, lost her personal mobility and suffered various other resultant disabilities. To keep her at home with us required engaging specialised caring services.
The care supplied by Sarah’s Carers enabled my mother to pass away with dignity in our home with the family around her. The genuine kindness and understanding that they showed to us immediately following my mother’s recent death was a great support to us all. We would recommend Sarah’s Carers without reservation.”
