COP­ING ON YOUR OWN?

Are your par­ents strug­gling to cope on their own? Do you feel help­less? Don’t know which way to turn?

Cotswold Life - - PROMOTION -

AT Ship­ston Care, we un­der­stand how dif­fi­cult it is to wit­ness a de­cline in a par­ent’s health, see­ing them un­able to com­plete sim­ple tasks, and gen­er­ally los­ing their in­de­pen­dence.

As we get older, daily tasks and rou­tines that many of us take for granted can be­come dif­fi­cult or re­stric­tive. See­ing this hap­pen to a loved one can be quite a dis­tress­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, real­is­ing that they are no longer able to cope on their own, or are un­safe to do so. To watch a par­ent, who has al­ways been a strong and in­de­pen­dent per­son, now strug­gle to re­mem­ber how to dress them­selves, or make a cup of tea, is ut­terly heart-break­ing.

At Ship­ston Care, we un­der­stand what you are go­ing through, as we have seen it many times be­fore – you are not alone. We work hard to sup­port not only our clients, but also you: their fam­ily and loved ones.

There is ab­so­lutely no shame in ask­ing for help. By tak­ing the onus of their care off you, Ship­ston Care en­ables you to re­turn to the par­ent-child re­la­tion­ship that you may have lost, there­fore look­ing for­ward to and en­joy­ing the time you spend to­gether, rather than feel­ing the bur­den and re­sent­ment of be­ing re­spon­si­ble for them 24/7.

Our Live-in Care ser­vice of­fers a great, cost-ef­fec­tive al­ter­na­tive to a Care or Nurs­ing Home, with many ex­tra ben­e­fits. Your loved one can re­main in the com­fort and safety of their home with their own per­sonal carer, mean­ing they don’t have the huge emo­tional strain of mov­ing to new, un­fa­mil­iar sur­round­ings. They will re­ceive one-on-one sup­port, 24/7, which gives you the peace of mind you need, know­ing that their needs are be­ing met.

A Live-in Carer is there to pro­vide sup­port, and to fit in to their client’s life­style. The Carer’s pur­pose is to pro­mote your par­ent’s in­de­pen­dence and en­hance their life. Aside from per­sonal care and com­pan­ion­ship, they can take them shop­ping, on coach trips, vis­it­ing friends and rel­a­tives, and ac­com­pany them on hol­i­days. This en­sures our clients have real qual­ity of life.
