Parkinson`s care at home:How do we provide the best care for your loved one?

Here at Guardian Carers, we pride ourselves on providing specialist care for a range of conditions. Parkinson’s disease is one of them. We understand that Parkinson’s disease can be a life-changing condition. It can progressively impact the brain which leads to an array of difficult to manage symptoms.

However, Guardian Carers is here to support you and your loved ones with the best Parkinson’s care at home. No matter what needs and requirements your loved one has, we can guarantee that we can find you the carer to tick all the boxes.

We can provide your loved one with a variety of experienced, and highly qualified carers to care for them in the comfort of their own home, therefore they can still be surrounded by familiar faces and their precious memories.

We understand that every individual who is diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease is different and symptoms would vary from person to person. This is why we can offer your loved one the relevant care for their specific requirements. Whether it is only a few hours a week to help care for the early stages of Parkinson’s or longer periods for more complex care needs, Guardian Carers can support them.

What Parkinson’s care at home services are available for your loved one?

Live-in care is one of the most comprehensive types of care at home you can find. Live-in care is particularly beneficial for someone with Parkinson’s disease. Our live-in care service can be enlisted 7 days a week, 24 hours per day or it can be tailored depending on your family member’s needs and requirements.

We can also offer live-out care - another popular option. Live-out carers will support your family member with their daily tasks and activities. They will be able to support them with more than just household tasks, such as helping with medication, mobility and engaging in daily activities.

If your family member only needs minimal support, part-time care at home may be the right option for them. Their carer can be available once a week, for a minimum of 3 hours per day or for multiple days per week. If your family member does not require constant support, then this type of care service will be suitable for them.

Guardian Carers can also provide your family member with a housekeeper-carer. They can be hired on a live-in or live-out basis, either part-time or full-time. Hiring a housekeeper-carer is great, as your family member will receive the support they need in terms of personal care, for example, but they will also be supported with any household chores they may have.

One more way that we can support your loved one at home is with the help of companion-housekeepers. Our companion-housekeepers will be able to provide your loved one with companionship, as well as supporting their daily needs and offering them safety and security.

What duties can you expect your loved one to be supported with at home?

As stated above, we can provide you with highly qualified and professional carers and companions who are specially trained in looking after people with Parkinson’s disease. They will be able to assist with an array of domestic duties and personal care as well as provide emotional support, companionship and encouragement. Some of the duties that a Parkinson’s carer at home can support include:

  • Helping with personal care and hygiene
  • Encouraging exercise
  • Assisting with mobility around the home
  • Arranging accompanying to doctor appointments
  • Preparing meals and snacks
  • Managing medication and ensuring it is taken on time
  • Keeping the house clean and tidy
  • Doing the grocery shopping
  • Household work such as ironing, laundry and changing the bedsheets
  • Any pet care if it is required

We always ensure that we match your loved one with a carer who not only has the relevant skillset and Parkinson’s experience but also complements your loved one’s personality. We also guarantee that they will provide them with a positive attitude and give any physical and psychological support they may need.

How can you get the best carer for your loved one?

The answer is simple. Guardian Carers will make it their mission that you get only the best of the best. The carer they will select for your loved one will have a minimum of 2 years of professional care experience, they will hold the necessary skills, qualifications and knowledge of Parkinson’s disease. Our promise to you is that you will always get vetted carers who have a minimum of 2 years of experience in the care sector.

All the carers we hire have to go through an in-depth vetting procedure and background check. This involves an enhanced DBS check, face-to-face interviews with the carer which will allow us to discuss more detail about their experience and qualifications, as well as personally checking their references over the phone.

We will always be happy to provide you with any interviewing tips and answer any questions that you may want to ask. Our specialist consultants will also guide you through the hiring process and offer you a stress-free and seamless experience. You won’t have to worry about doing any paperwork, as your consultant will take care of everything for you. All you will need to do is get ready to welcome your new carer into your loved one’s home.
