Here to help
Living away from an aging relative can be a cause for concern. At a distance, it can be difficult to know what your loved one needs or if they are struggling. It can also be challenging – especially if they don’t want to accept that they aren’t as independent as they were in the past.
The Private Care Company aims to bridge the gap you feel from your family by providing a personal, home care service with regular reviews and feedback which keep you in the loop. We want to keep your relative as independent as possible, as long as possible.
Signs that someone you love may need help from a caregiver include:
- Home or garden maintenance has declined and/or has become uncharacteristically cluttered, disorganised or dirty
- Noticeable weight loss or gain, hygiene deterioration, change of mood or depression, lack of interest in activities or hobbies, forgetfulness
If you think your relative needs extra help, talk with them about what you’re seeing and how it’s impacting their wellbeing. This may not be an easy conversation but it’s better to have it before it becomes a crisis. It may be that they just need a bit of support, which we can help with, rather than being moved into a care home. We have seen major improvements in our clients’ confidence and health with the help of a caregiver.
We’re here to not only support your loved one, but to give you peace of mind as well. Please feel free to get in touch.
