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