Medical Conditions Care

There is no place like home and Guardian Carers enables you to continue living the life you love in the home you love.

At Guardian Carers, we pride ourselves in providing a premium level of flexible private care to support your health requirements and specific care needs. Managing a certain medical condition can be a challenging and difficult experience, especially if you are unable to care for yourself. When you are first diagnosed with any condition, for example dementia or multiple sclerosis, you might find yourself being able to manage it mostly on your own. However, as time goes on, you might find that you require someone to lean on as symptoms persist, or the illness progresses. Having a private carer who specialises in a certain medical condition could be hugely beneficial as someone will be in your home who has hands on experience and knowledge, which will enable you to continue to live independently, and on your own terms. Working and cooperating with you and your loved ones, your specialised private carer will ensure to assist you in developing new methods and ways which will enable you to manage your specific medical condition with more confidence.

At Guardian Carers, we completely understand that your independence is key to you maintaining a good quality of life. Dealing with certain medical conditions, such as dementia, diabetes, multiple sclerosis or cancer, can be overwhelming and unsettling, and we believe there is no place like home when recovering or going through life-altering changes. Our private care service can provide you with specialised carers with medical training and nursing qualifications to ensure you are able to receive the correct support whilst remaining in the comfort of your own home.

WHAT QUALITIES SHOULD A CARER HAVE TO HELP AN INDIVIDUAL WITH A MEDICAL CONDITION?

When we hire our experienced private carers, there are some important qualities we look for in order to fulfil the role to an exceptional standard. We believe some of the many aspects good carer should have is being respectful, patient, reliable and qualified.

All of our specialised carers must be understandable and respectful to you and your needs. You may find yourself not being able to do everything that you used to be capable of doing, and therefore people may start to treat you differently, or at times, can come across as patronising. At Guardian Carers, we ensure that all of our carers will treat you with the respect that you deserve, and also ensure this is maintained throughout your placement.

An exceptional carer is guaranteed to be patient. Particularly if you are suffering from a medical condition, it can be frustrating at times when every day and easy tasks are taking longer to complete than usual. Therefore, it is hugely important that your private carer is patient and calm in any situation that may arise.

At Guardian Carers, we believe that the perfect carer should be reliable. As time goes on, and your age or medical condition can progress, then you may start need to start relying on your carer for more important tasks, such as taking you to your doctor’s appointment, or managing your medication. Your personal, private in-home carer will have to ensure that every duty is completed, and they are done in the correct manner, and timely fashion.

Another important quality that carer should have is the ability to be observant. You or your loved one may not notice specific symptoms becoming more and more frequent. However, is it up to your specialised private home carer to notice this such as this and act accordingly. Along with being observant, it is also important that your carer must be compassionate. If it comes to a time when you or your loved one start to deteriorate, it can be a very emotional and difficult time, but having a carer there to support you and be there to cheer you up on your bad days, is very important.

Our medically specialised private carers are also a source of emotional support and friendship, so no matter what your situation is, or what you and your family are going through, you can have full confidence in knowing that you have someone standing by your side and offering a helping hand.

As you or your loved ones needs can change and evolve over time, the care can also evolve with you. Therefore, while you may have started with someone popping in a few times a week, you may also find that you gradually require more and more help, which could be a sign that you need for a carer who can be with you full time.

WHAT MEDICAL CONDITIONS CAN WE PROVIDE CARERS FOR?

At Guardian Cares, we understand how difficult it could be to come to terms with a medical condition. We offer a wide range of specialised carers who are qualified with nursing and caring for people with certain medical conditions. All of our carers have a minimum of 3 years in the care industry, so you will be in safe hands.
