What does a carer for a family member do?

Employing a carer for your family member is the perfect solution for those who feel as though they are not quite ready to leave their beloved family home but find themselves increasingly relying on friends or family to assist with aspects of their daily life.

Caring for a family member is completely customizable to your schedule and your needs, whether that be full time, part-time, live-out or live-in care for a family member. This is why private care for your family members is the most accommodating care option for your family member. The added support around their day to day life will mean they are able to live as independently as possible, without feeling like a burden on you to get essential tasks done and remain in your home and community for as long as possible surrounded by their friends and their precious possessions that hold such dear memories.

Your experienced carer can assist with:

  • Organising activities
  • Taking you to social events
  • Organising appointments
  • Mediation management
  • Personal care
  • Grooming
  • Helping with a hobby
  • Laundry and ironing
  • Preparing meals
  • Liaising with doctors
  • Light gardening
  • Ensuring the home is kept clean and tidy to your standards
  • Taking pets on walks
  • Mobility support
  • Helping with the hoovering
  • Changing bed linen

Personalised care

Care for your family member provides a personalised, flexible and one on one care for your loved one in the environment where they feel most comfortable. By choosing an experienced carer for your family member, you are choosing to keep them in their home for as long as possible, surrounded by their friends and community. By personalising the care, your family member will remain independent within their home until they feel ready to move on to a retirement residence. Personalised care also means that as their needs develop, their care can develop too alongside them.

Specialised care and in-depth understanding

Private and personalised care is essential if your family member is dealing with more serious health issues that may have complications. Private carers are specifically trained and have years of hands-on experience managing these illnesses on a day to day basis, they will provide you with a deeper understanding than your loved ones might be able to provide.

They will also be more experienced that your loved ones may be in dealing with more challenging situations that might arise. They are also able to guide you through the changes that happen within yourself, provide you with reassurance and an understanding shoulder to lean on.
