Tay Care at Home
Personal care - helping with the important daily activities such as eating, dressing, bathing, continence care and getting ready for bed, while ensuring our client’s choice, privacy and dignity is respected at all times.
•Respite - stepping in for limited periods, either occasionally or regularly, allowing family/informal/unpaid carers to spend time with other friends and family, run errands, enjoy hobbies or even have a holiday.
•Dementia care - reducing the risk of our clients being unattended, providing stimulating activities and facilitating social events and other outings, with staff that are trained to deal with the challenges of dementia with compassion, respect and professionalism and who seek to support the whole family.
•Medication assistance - avoiding serious risks to our client’s health by helpful telephone calls to remind them to take their medication, or more hands-on support to ensure that they can take their medications when and as directed.
•Home help - assisting with light housekeeping tasks, such as dusting, vacuuming, cleaning the kitchen, washing, ironing, changing bed linen, reading the mail and looking after pets. In addition, our support staff can help with meal preparation, taking into account food preferences and desired meal times and can remind and encourage our clients to hydrate to ensure their well-being. They can also assist with food and other shopping where required and pick up any prescriptions. Unlike domestic cleaning agencies, all TayCare staff providing these services are security cleared and trained to work with vulnerable adults.
•Mobility Assistance - helping clients with mobility issues, providing support for activities at home, visiting friends and family, special celebrations, day trips, holidays and other outings, ensuring each client can lead as full and enjoyable a life as possible.
•Companionship - spending time with our clients, providing social interaction such as chatting and reminiscing in their own home, going out for short walks or day trips, or bolstering their independence by accompanying them to social events and other outings, ensuring that they remain as physically and socially active as possible and greatly adding to their quality of life.
•Hospital helpers – ensuring our clients get the companionship and/or supplies they need while in hospital, or are accompanied and helped to settle back home, to aid a speedy recovery. Ideal if family/friends are far away or busy working.
