Having a live-in carer is considered the most comprehensive type of care that we can offer, it can be particularly beneficial for some with Parkinson’s disease. At guardian carers, we pride ourselves in making sure you feel very comfortable with your carer, and then hopefully a care residence will not be an option for you. Your personal live-in carer will be able to care for you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, whilst you remain in your own home.
Live-out care is a specific type of care that will help you with your daily tasks and activities. Having a Live-Out carer will be a seamless addition to your day to day tasks, and are able to help more than just around the household.
Hiring Part-Time care will mean your carer can be available once a week, a few times a week or for a couple of hours a day depending on what support you are looking for. If there is no need for you to require constant care throughout the day or week, then this type of care will be suitable for you. It will allow you to specify what care you need, and when you need it.
By using a private care agency such as Guardian Carers, we can also offer you a Housekeeper-Carer, which is the perfect hybrid of having a person who takes the responsibilities of your household duties, as well as assisting with your personal care. Your personal Housekeeper-Carer will be more flexible and are there to give you a helping hand wherever you may need it. This could range from changing the bed linen, to assisting with personal hygiene. A Housekeeper-Carer can be available for part-time or full-time work, as well as live-in or live-out.
We can also offer you with a Companion-Housekeeper. A Companion-Housekeeper will be able to provide you with companionship within your daily life, as well as supporting your needs and caring for your safety. You are free to share stories and experience over a warm cup of tea. Your Companion-Housekeeper will be carefully and thoroughly selected to ensure your personalities match and you share similar characteristics and morals to each other.
Respite care can also be provided for you or your loved one, and be useful for someone who is diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. Respite care allows you to be cared for within a set period of time, this can include personal and home care. In many situations, Respite care is often used for people if they have undergone an operation, or if their current private nursing carer is on annual leave. In addition, a Respite carer can also help with home transfers from the hospital for you or your loved one.
