3 benefits of domestic care with Heroes Homecare
Domestic care is becoming increasingly popular to provide extra support to help people stay safe and happy in their own homes for longer. If you’re considering domestic care in Reading and Wokingham and wondering whether it’s right for you or a loved one, here’s how Heroes Homecare could change your life.
1. Flexible services tailored to your unique needs
When it comes to home care, you may think you need to choose from a predefined package of care that might not fit your needs or your budget. At Heroes Homecare, that’s not the case. We create a bespoke care plan to fit you or your loved one’s unique needs and requirements. And that doesn’t just mean your care needs – there are multiple factors that affect a person’s wellbeing, and we do everything we can to make sure our clients really are as happy as they can be.
While we offer traditional care services such as help with washing, dressing, personal care, meal prep and keeping the house tidy, we can also pop in for a cup of tea and a chat about last night’s TV. We can feed your pets, help with a jigsaw, or join you for a stroll around a local park.
Whether you need short-term care or support for longer, we’re here to help.
2. Stay in the home you love for longer
For many of us, our home is what grounds us. It’s where we feel safe, where we’ve chosen to build our life, and it’s decorated just the way we like it. Giving up your home to move into a care home or sheltered housing can feel like sacrificing your independence. Domestic care means you or your loved one can stay where they feel safe and happiest, close to the friends they’ve made and continue to be part of the community. They can still enjoy the garden they’ve spent years cultivating, the local shops are still local, and they don’t have to change their GP.
Our clients often say that Heroes Homecare gives them a greater sense of stability. They have a team of carers they know and trust to help them without having to leave the house, and their families can enjoy visiting them in familiar surroundings.
3. Accessible, affordable care from a friendly face
Large companies with branches across the country will have a wealth of expertise and never be short on carers. But they can also have higher staff turnover, which can impact quality of care, and they may have less flexible care packages. A local independent company, on the other hand, is more likely to have a strong, core team who enjoy working together and know the community really well. Without being tied to a parent company, there will also be less red tape, which means they’re more likely to offer personalised care plans. Do your research – check out client reviews and the company’s CQC rating to find the fit that’s right for you.
Because our care plans are tailored to meet your needs, our pricing is too, making home care a more affordable option for most people. We can visit a few times a week, once a day, or pop in several times a day depending on how often you need us. There are no hidden costs and any changes to your plan will be discussed and signed off before they’re implemented.
Our team of Heroes is full of kind, compassionate people across a range of ages and backgrounds, so we can match clients to carers they’ll get along well with, which may not be possible in a care home. Our domestic care in Reading and Wokingham is provided by real locals who live right here in the community, the place you or your loved one has chosen to put down roots, and we love it here as much as you do.
