Is a Housekeeper Carer the best option for me?

A Housekeeper Carer is a perfect hybrid between having a Housekeeper to care for your home and a Carer to care for you. They really are the best of both worlds. Housekeeper Carers also takes the pressure off your loved ones, who while they are happy to help when and where they can, are most likely not equipped with the skills and experience that a Housekeeper Carer can offer.

Flexible to your needs

All our professional Housekeeper Carers are available to you as and when you require. Whether you are looking for someone to come by a couple of times a week and help with laundry, running errands, taking you to appointments or if you need someone to live in with you. Whatever your care needs, our professional Housekeeper Carers are here to accommodate. We also understand that your care needs may steadily increase so while you may start off with needing someone part time, you may end up requiring a full-time live-in Housekeeper Carer, our carers are able to develop alongside your care needs.

Bespoke one on one care

Having your own Domestic Housekeeper Carer provides you with personalised, one on one care that is flexible to your requirements that you are not able to receive elsewhere. Professional Housekeeper Carers also ensure you can remain within your home, your community and maintain your schedule for as long as you desire. Living an independent life throughout your golden years.

Your domestic Housekeeper Carer can assist you with almost everything such as:

  • Making your favourite meals
  • Organising and taking you to appointments
  • Medication management
  • Liaising with your doctors
  • Dusting
  • Washing dishes
  • Assisting with bathing
  • Organising leisure activities
  • Personal care and grooming
  • Helping with home administration
  • Going on short walks around the neighbourhood
  • Personal care
  • Mobility support
  • Running errands
  • Cleaning kitchens and bathrooms
  • Helping with the hoovering
  • Changing bed linen

Having one on one care, whether it is on a full time or part time basis, means the quality of care you receive is amplified. It's completely personal to you and your needs so you are able to focus on what’s really important to you. You free up the time to continue to be an active member within your community and stay engaged in your life.

Emotional support along with physical

A domestic Housekeeper carer is an excellent source of emotional support. While staying in your home for as long as possible is the goal, this can come with feelings of loneliness and isolation from your peers and community. Professional Housekeeper Carers keep you in your home, in a familiar environment for as long as possible, near your friends and loved ones and provide you with the ability to continue to see them as and when you wish.

Having someone that has a deeper understanding of what you are going through than maybe your loved ones are able to provide is essential to your emotional wellbeing. If you are having a bad day and aren’t up to doing anything much, your Housekeeper Carer can take care of it all. You will be matched with someone who has common interests and hobbies so you are spending your time with someone who will become a beloved friend.

Expert and specialised care

If you are in the early stages of more serious health issues, such as Alzheimer's or Parkinson's disease, a Housekeeper Carer is a great option for you. Housekeeper Carers can be specially trained and have hands on experience in these areas so they can help guide you through the changes you are experiencing. They will also have a deeper understanding than your loved ones of how to respond to challenging situations that may 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. As the conditions develop later on you may need to consider a live in carer who can specialise in caring for your needs.
