Our In-Home & Live-In Care Solutions
Bluebird Care based in Maidstone provide a range of Care Solutions designed to increase your quality of life whilst staying in your family home.
In-Home Care Solutions
Having a paid carer visit you at home can significantly enhance your daily life, particularly if mobility challenges hinder your movements. Such assistance can be pivotal in allowing you to continue living independently within your familiar surroundings.
The cost for homecare services typically starts at less than £30 an hour, though prices can vary depending on your location and the level of services you require. In certain situations, the local council might offer financial support towards these costs.
The flexibility of in-home care is one of its major advantages. Whether you need a carer for just an hour a week or several hours daily, or even a live-in carer, the service can be tailored to your needs. Furthermore, this support can be short-term, perhaps while you recuperate from a health setback, or it can extend into a long-term arrangement.
Which In-Home Care Solution is Best for You?
When choosing a care solution for your personal needs it’s imperative to understand your unique needs, the amount of independence you value, and the level of care you require.
If you find that you only need support for specific parts of the day, such as assistance with meal preparation, personal hygiene, or reminders for medication, then at-home care might be best suited for you. This type of care allows you to stay in your familiar surroundings, surrounded by your memories and belongings. It allows you to remain independent and in control of your daily routine.
However, if your health needs are more demanding, needing constant attention and support, you should consider live-in care. With this arrangement, a carer would be present in your home around the clock and providing care during the waking hours,or if needed 24 hour care is also available. Such continuous care can be invaluable in case of emergencies and also provides constant companionship, which can be comforting and help combat feelings of loneliness.
You should take time to weigh the benefits of each option against your personal needs and preferences. Remember, the best choice is the one that ensures your well-being, comfort, and peace of mind.
