Do you believe the time has come for you to get senior care at home? Taking the first step and knowing where to start can be intimidating for some. This is why we are here to offer you all the information you need to know about senior care so that you will be prepared for what is ahead.

If you are looking for quality senior care services in the comfort of your own home, then Guardian Carers are the ones to offer you the best. More than 95% of the families we work with result in happy and long-lasting senior care placements. So, what senior care options are available out there?
There are a myriad of senior care options available for you to choose from. Some people, depending on their requirements, choose to go down the care home option. However, this option is often more costly and not as qualitative as enlisting senior care in your home. Other people choose to move into retirement villages where they can live the rest of their lives whilst receiving senior care services in-house.
However, for the majority of people, neither of these options are ideal. Most people want to remain in their homes for as long as possible. Nowadays, people can remain at home without ultimately having to resort to the option of care homes.
The variety of senior care options available means that people can remain in their homes even if they suffer from advanced stages of dementia, for instance. Professional and experienced senior carers will be on-hand to help at any hour of the day or night.
Senior care is customisable based on anyone’s needs and requirements. Some examples of senior care available include condition-led care, post-operative care, sports injury care, dementia care, Parkinson’s care and many more.
More than this, you should know that senior care can be enlisted for a short period of time or long-term. You can hire a senior carer either on a part-time or full-time basis. They can live-in your home or live-out.
As stated above, senior care is completely customisable to your needs and requirements. With Guardian Carers, you will get a fully-personalised plan and a senior carer who has been hand-picked to suit all your needs. You should also know that if your needs change over time, your senior care plan can be adjusted along the way.
Senior care will remove the stress of day to day life. It will offer you support with your care requirements and you will also gain someone to lean on, as a senior carer will offer you their companionship.
Senior care is completely flexible to your needs. While your senior carer’s main duty will be to look after your health and general well-being, they will also be in charge of household tasks. Some of the tasks that a senior carer will be able to assist you with are:
