10 Reasons Why Domiciliary Care is a Great Choice

Domiciliary care is a great choice for anyone considering finding care for their loved ones. There are many reasons why one should consider it over other options as we'll see in this blog post.

There are many reasons why domiciliary care is a great choice. First, it's a choice that is good for the caregiver/relative. The stress of working full time and then rushing to care for someone else can be overwhelming. In domiciliary care, you don't have to do both at once because your loved one will be looked after by professionals who are able to take on more than what family members could manage.

There is so much to love about Domiciliary Care and many ways that it can help your loved one(s) to live a better life. It is the perfect choice for those who need assistance in their day to day living.

We found that families struggle to come to a decision on what type of care services to go for.

We at Charlotte's Compassionate Care Services understand this process and are happy to work with the family to make sure that they make the perfect choice for their loved one(s).

The ten-point put together in this blog should help you come closer to that decision and if you need anyone more enlightenment we hope that you will not hesitate to contact us - no obligation to use our services.

  1. It is the perfect solution for people who have limited mobility or struggle with daily tasks such as cooking and cleaning.

  2. Great for anyone who has memory loss and struggles to remember simple things such as what day of the week it is or a bit complex such as what time to take medication or which one(s) to take.

  3. Loneliness: It is a known fact that most elderly people are scared of being alone. Loneliness can lead to so many things such as depression or anxiety but having someone come in a few hours a day can help reduce this.

  4. Socialisation: If you have a loved one that lives alone and is feeling lonely then domiciliary care could be the perfect solution for them to meet new friends with similar interests in their local community, they will soon feel like this was the best decision ever made!

  5. Finding balance: Most relatives stress over their loved ones. Understandably. When you assign tasks to professionals like us, you can spend your time doing what matters most to you and still look forward to quality time with your loved ones.

  6. Nutrition: Due to old age or dementia, some people will forget when to have a meal or what sort of diet is best suited for them. With the help of home care services such as ourselves, you can rest assured that your loved ones are given the nutrition they need to live a healthy life. lt is vital for their well-being but also makes you feel good knowing that this part of care has been taken off your shoulders.

  7. Happiness: Home Care Assistants will take on burdensome tasks such as cooking, cleaning and taking out the trash which in turn creates a harmonious environment to feel happy and live a quality life.

  8. Consistency: Providing constant care for your loved ones in a familiar environment is essential to keep them happy and healthy. This also enables you to have the peace of mind that they are receiving proper attention when you can't be there yourself, which is vital for their mental well-being

  9. Prevention of accidents: When you have someone visiting the home of your loved one(s) to give them care, they will go an extra mile to ensure that it is a safe environment.

  10. Peace of mind: When you know that your loved one is well tucked in at the end of the day, you will have peace of mind.

Bonus -

  • Companionship: Compassion and companionship go hand in hand. Some people like to talk about politics others someone to read the newspaper for them while others need someone to watch football with and exchange ideas.

By hiring a domiciliary carer you enable your loved ones to spend quality family time with those they love without having to worry about whether or not their needs are being met by a stranger
