CARE AT HOME
How we can help...
Assisting with medication
End of life care
Going out and about
If you or a loved one need some support to continue to enjoy life at home, JRH Support can help to make that happen.
We can provide support in lots of different ways, for instance:
If you are finding household jobs like cleaning difficult, then we can help. Whether it's support with specific jobs that you are having particular difficulty with, or you'd like us to give your home a regular full clean, our sensitive and skilled staff will do things just the way you like them to be done.
As you get older it can become more difficult to get out and about, especially to do things like your food shopping when you have heavy bags to carry. This is something we can help with, either by going with you to the shops, going to the shops for you or ordering over the internet.
Maintaining a balanced diet is an important part of keeping healthy. To ensure that service users eat properly, staff can either help service users to prepare and cook meals or actually cook meals for them. Our Care at Home staff are also happy to prepare simple hot or cold meals that can be eaten later in the day, such as soup, salads and sandwiches.
We understand that everyone is an individual with their own specific needs and preferences, which is why our support is always personalised to the individual who is being supported. We know that when people require support with personal care it can be difficult or embarrassing for them, and they might worry about losing their independence.
Our sensitive and skilled staff are highly experienced at putting people at ease, and supporting them to retain as much independence as possible with their personal care needs.
Our range of personal care services is really broad, but here are some of the daily activities we support people with:
Bathing and showering
Support with getting up and going to bed
Help with using the bathroom and toilet
Getting dressed and undressed
Support with continence care
Awareness of personal hygiene
We can help people with all aspects of their laundry, such as washing, drying, ironing etc.
Assisting with Medication
All of our Care at Home staff have completed medication administration training to ensure that they are competent to safely support people with their medication. We have robust policies and procedures in place and always follow national regualations and recommendations regarding the administration of medication.
We regularly liaise with GPs, Pharmacists, District Nurses and other healthcare professionals to ensure safe practices are maintained.
We regularly support people to attend important appointments - everything from seeing their GP or Dentist, to visiting the hospital or getting their eyes tested.
Many older people live with family members or rely on partners to keep them safe. We recognise that it may not always be possible for family members to remain at home all the time to care for an elderly relative, so we are able to provide a friendly service where one of our support workers will remain with the person to keep them company and ensure they remain safe.
End of Life Care
End of life care is support for people who are approaching death. It helps them to live as well as possible until they die, and to die with dignity.
Caring for people at the end of their lives is an extremely important part of the services we provide. Like any other service, providing end of life care means ensuring that we understand how you or your loved one would like to be cared for.
Every individual has the right to their own beliefs and customs and our kind and sensitive support workers are trained to understand the diversity that exists in our communities. We always work in partnership with service users and their families to ensure their support is delivered the way they want it to be.
Our staff are trained to provide high quality person-centred care and support to people with dementia. Our aim is to ease the symptoms of dementia with understanding and expertise, focusing on individual needs and supporting people to remain living at home.
Companionship and Going Out
We can offer a flexible companionship service to supports people who may at times feel lonely to get the most out of life. We support people with a wide range of things such as accompanying to social engagements, help with reading, visiting friends and neighbours, reminiscing about the past, taking part in hobbies and interests and generally chatting about things.
None of our staff wear a uniform so visits out will always look natural.
We understand that finding the right care and support for yourself or for an older family member can seem like a pretty daunting task. You might be worried about whether a support provider like JRH Support will be able to understand and respond to you or your loved one's individual needs and personal preferences, or that people will not respect your home or listen to the way you like things to be done.
At JRH Support we understand all of these concerns. We have years of experience in providing high quality person-centred care at home for older people and people with disabilities living in and around the Nottingham area.
A visiting support worker is a practical and preferable alternative to residential care for most people, helping them to retain independence at home and maintain their quality of life.
Right from the beginning, we'll make sure we get a detailed picture of what it is you're looking for and what is important to you or your loved one, to ensure that a truly personalised package of care and support can be set up.
