October 2014 will see the introduction of the long awaited Care Act, a major piece of legislation expected to reform social care. At the heart of this, is a requirement on local authorities to offer services that promote health and wellbeing, putting people at the centre of their own care. This is supported by minimum eligibility criteria that councils cannot change. In addition, it caps the amount of money that an individual has to pay towards their care to prevent them from having to sell their home to pay for this.
The Act focuses on prevention, aiming to improve physical, mental and emotional wellbeing and reduce or delay a person’s need for care and support. Although several issues are still to be decided, Senior Care Solutions @ Home Ltd is preparing for possible changes to the way we work, such as:
- Training staff to understand individualised or person-centred assessment and care planning, to deliver personalised care and know how to recognise whether this is being achieved.
- Looking about whether we can diversify our business to include preventative services and advocacy.
- What further help and support we could offer to our carers.
Home care provides round the clock attention and care for the elderly. It makes sure that your loved ones receive individual one-on-one attention in a more personal setting and can also get the assistance that will enhance their quality of life.
In-home caregivers cater to every individual requirement of the elders. They also provide emotional support and companionship which is much required at this stage. They ensure that your loved ones feel safe and secure in the company of people close to them. A 24-hour home care service would make it possible to meet their emotional needs and prevent them from succumbing to depression.
Being at home, your parents and grandparents can sit in the chair they love; they can enjoy the sunshine in their backyards and live their life to the fullest with you being around them. It also allows them to recover from their injury or illness easily. A personalised home care service will enable them to remain calm and give them peace of mind allowing them to pass their life with tranquility.
Our services are available from 1 hour to 24 hours a day to live in care. We are available 24*7 throughout the year. Senior Care Solutions @ Home Ltd has changed the face of ageing by offering a wide variety of home care services that help people to have a safe and healthy life with comfort, independence and dignity.
