As you get older you may decide to remain living in your own home rather than move into a residential or care home. However you may need some extra support to help you retain your independence. We are often asked to help out if older people don’t have family nearby to give day-to-day support, or you may have more complex care needs that require more specialist support.
Honeydew Healthcare Limited, being based in the Midlands and providing services across Birmingham, Coventry, Nottingham, Leicester and Derby has allowed us to gain experience in supporting older people from all ethnic backgrounds. We make sure that every member of our team understands the needs of diverse communities.
We work as part of multi-disciplinary teams and regularly deal with health and social care professionals when planning care packages. We will meet with you and other key individuals involved in your care and discuss what your individual needs are and how these can be met by our team. We will also carry out a risk assessment of your home.
We will match you with a carer that is appropriate for the level of care that you need. The level of service provided varies for everyone; here are a few examples of how we can help you.
You may need some support at the start or end of the day for a few hours. Our healthcare support workers are trained to help you get in or out of bed, help with washing and dressing. They are also able to deal with incontinence pads or changing catheters. You will be treated with outmost dignity and respect at all times.
If you need help with household chores such as cooking, cleaning or washing we can take care of this for you. We make sure we understand your personal requirements fully especially with regards to cooking, making sure that your tastes and nutritional requirements are catered for. You may need us to do the shopping for you, pay bills or pick up your pension; you can be assured our trusted staff will deal with these requests as and when required.
Accompanying you to appointments
If you need us to escort you to appointments or take you shopping we can arrange this as well. Having a companion with you will help you be at ease whenever you need to travel.
