Guardian Carers Feature on BBC News London

Guide for people in care

300,000 people in the United Kingdom employ a carer at home. But every person is special and they require different levels of care. Guardian Carers can help in making the best decision about care needs. Guardian Carers provides different levels of care to suit different needs. Some elders may simply be on the search for companions, while some may need a carer to help them perform more complicated tasks. Carers can also be hired part-time, full-time, they can either live-in or live-out. Carers can help with:

  • Meal preparation
  • Help with cleaning the home
  • Doing laundry and ironing
  • Shopping for groceries
  • Booking doctor’s appointments
  • Remind to take medicines
  • Providing personal care such as bathing, dressing or toilet assistance

However, as mentioned before, Guardian Carers also offer companion services. So if any elder is deciding whether or not they need a companion, we can offer the proper consultation in order to reach the right decision. It’s good to know that making the decision to have a companion is a great choice if the family is not able to be around too much, due to busy schedules or distance or whether the elder is recently bereaved, just to name a few reasons. A companion will be matched based on the person’s hobbies and interests. Many times it happens that a companion will form a really strong bond with their employer and eventually become friends. Here are just some of the things that a companion can do:

  • Offer companionship and be a good conversation partner
  • Play games together, such as chess or puzzles
  • Go to appointments together
  • Attend plays or concerts together
  • Prepare some meals
  • Help with light cleaning of the home
  • Change bedsheets
  • Book appointments

The number of elderly people is increasing significantly worldwide. As a result, this ageing of the world population will also significantly increase the number of elderly people who require care. Making a conscious decision is fundamental in finally receiving the right level of care, suited to the elder and their personal needs.
