Promoting Independence at Home

As a specialist home-care provider we are proud to provide invaluable help and support which allows our clients to remain independent at home for as long as possible. We understand just how important it is to our clients to remain in control of day-to-day life and continue to live in the comfort of familiar surroundings. We also understand the worry it can bring to loving family members who may be concerned about the wellbeing and safety of loved ones at home on their own.

Moving to residential care is an enormous change in one’s life and can be an extremely distressing and traumatic transition. Frequently, families of care home residents notice a significant deterioration in loved one’s mental wellbeing and physical health when going through such a change. Understandably most people are reluctant to leave their much-loved homes behind and are looking for alternatives.

As a home care provider specialising in Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, Bridgewater Home Care can provide essential support that affords people living with a variety of conditions or disabilities to remain independent, in control of their living environment and, importantly, happy and healthy in familiar surroundings.

We tailor all our services to specific needs and requirements, whether that be occasional shorter visits to ensure your loved one is safe and well at home or regular scheduled daily visits, morning and evening, to provide personal or specialist support.

Our aim is to ensure your loved one receives the attention and support they need, without compromising their independence. As an alternative to residential care, domiciliary care (home care) gives you and your loved one the freedom and flexibility to choose how, when and what frequency our support is provided.

The Care Specialists at Bridgewater Home Care can help with any of the following services to aid independence:

        • Companionship visits – social interaction and a friendly face to talk to.

       

        • Scheduled regular visits – help with household duties (e.g. cleaning, laundry, making the bed, food preparation).

       

        • Personal care visits – personal hygiene, administering medication, toilet assistance.

       

     

        • Mobility support – public transport aid, exercise, walking.

       

        • Food preparation – food shopping, meal preparation and cooking.

       

        • …and much more!

       

     

Simple, yet effective, aids around the home can be installed to help your loved one maintain independence and remain safe, these are especially useful if people live on their own or are living with a long-term disability. We can help to create a practical, helpful and useful space at home through implementing various aids such as calendars, checklists, safety aids (for example handrails or alarm systems) all of which will suit your loved one’s day to day life.

Whether you need us a couple of times a week, every day or 24/7, our services will be scheduled to fit in with your loved one’s lives allowing us to be there when they need the support and assistance to lead a happy, safe and independent life in their own home.
