What qualities do we look for in our reablement carers?

If you are considering reablement care at home for you or your loved ones, you want to be sure that your reablement carer will provide the highest quality of care. Guardian Carers have been in the care industry for over a decade, during this time period we know the exact qualities a reablement carer should have.

We look for 4 main things in our reablement carers:

1. Trust

Trust is the foundation of all relationships, your reablement carer will be there with you through some of your most vulnerable and toughest times - it is essential you trust them. To encourage trust we ensure our carers are reliable, punctual and confident in their abilities.

2. Passion

If your carer is passionate about their job and love to help others, they are more likely to do it to the best of their ability as well as being smiley and enthusiastic during the time period. Being a reablement carer is a hard and demanding role, you are constantly on your feet and need to be alert, which is why it is important that your carer has a drive about them.

3. Qualifications

Guardian carers understand that it is scary to leave your life in the hands of someone else, which is why we require a minimum of 3 years experience to ensure you are in the most capable and able hands.

4. Respect

Reablement care at home allows you to continue to live as independently as possible, which is why they must understand that you may want to change or cancel a few things in your schedule. Your carer must respect your actions and limitations.

With the demands of an ageing population, as well as the growing number of illnesses and disabilities that are affecting the older generations, the care industry is developing and growing to offer more services than ever before. Reablement care gives your loved ones the peace of mind that you are supported and cared for in the way that your needs require.

With care at home after an illness, surgery or disability development, your loved one is able to remain in their homes around their pets, should they have one.

Reablement care is a personalised, one on one service in the environment your loved one feels most comfortable, their home. Moulding and evolving to your needs, a reablement carer ensures your needs are being met and they remain independent in their home and able to stay within their community, surrounded by their friends for as long as possible.

Our reablement care at home provides the necessary security and safety you need to maintain the life you have built in your home. By having a reablement carer, you and your loved ones can have the peace of mind, knowing you are in safe and able hands should you have a fall or an emergency. Also having an extra abled body around the house reduces the chances of uninvited visitors.
