Home care services in Reading and Wokingham
If you want to find out more about our home care services in Reading, Wokingham and the surrounding area, you’ve come to the right place! At Heroes Homecare, we pride ourselves on our fresh approach to care. That means enabling people to stay safe and independent in their own homes for as long as possible.
Caring for someone can mean different things to different people, which is why our care services are completely tailored to meet you or your loved one’s unique needs and requirements.
Help around the house
Let’s start with how we can help around the house. You or your loved one may be struggling to keep the house and garden neat and tidy or to get the bins out. Our carers can carry out light housework and help in the garden to keep things just the way you or your loved one likes them. We can also make sure the house is safe and that any trip hazards are removed to reduce the risks of falls.
We can also help to prepare meals to ensure your loved one has three delicious and well-balanced meals a day. We’ll even do the washing up afterwards.
Help with medication
Not knowing whether your loved one is taking the right dose of medication at the right time can be worrying. Or maybe you need support to administer your own medication, or struggle to get it out of its packaging. With Heroes Homecare, you don’t have to worry: our carers are fully trained to make sure medication is taken on time, correctly and stored properly.
As we age, it can become difficult to do the things we’ve taken for granted for years, such as washing, dressing, or even getting up. We can help you or your loved one out of bed, do up those fiddly buttons, and get them ready to face the day. Then we can call around again later to help them back into bed. Our carers are also fully trained to provide continence support and to assist with bathing and shaving.
Companionship at home and out and about
The most important aspect of caring for someone is being a good companion to them. We can pop round for a cup of tea or to enjoy a hobby together, chaperone you or your loved one to visit friends or attend appointments, or go on a day trip together.
By taking over as your loved one’s primary care provider, we can also give you time back as a family, especially if your loved one has complex or specialist medical requirements that are time-consuming or stressful to manage. We can even collect them from hospital after surgery, pick up their prescriptions and help with rehabilitation, so you can focus on brightening their day with your visits.
All of our services are designed to support and empower our clients. We provide that extra bit of support to keep them safe and make every effort to ensure they feel respected and confident in our care. Our home care services are not about taking over yours or your loved one’s life, we’re here to help you live the way you want to live, in your own home, with your possessions and pets around you, free to enjoy spending time with friends and family without worrying about the stresses of daily life.
