Our team of professional carers provides high-quality, person-centred care for older people who need support to live independently at home. We’re an established care provider in Bedfordshire, with over 10 years of experience in the sector.
Our home care is provided by trained care workers who deliver personalised care, tailored to each individual client. Our live-in care service offers 24-hour support from a carer who lives with their client, providing personal, or specialist care in familiar surroundings.
Research carried out by Carers UK finds that 3 in 5 adults, in the UK, will become carers for their parents. Being a full or part-time carer can be exhausting, however willingly it is offered to loved ones, especially if parents are living with dementia. BSH care services for the elderly in Bedfordshire offer additional support, or respite for family carers.
Our services range from digital or phone check-ins to monitor hydration or medication, right through to specialist dementia care. All elderly care services start with an assessment, which includes a risk assessment, in order to create a tailored care package. Our clients and any family carers are included in this process to ensure we offer the most appropriate support.
All our clients wish to live independently at home, and our job is to support them to do so. Many of them require nothing more than help with household tasks, meal preparation or shopping in order to live happily and well.
We also provide care packages to help with families managing dementia or Alzheimer’s. Specialist dementia carers monitor clients living with this condition, and if they feel that more care support is required, they’ll discuss it with their client and the family as a whole.
Live-in care can be short or long-term. Sometimes carers request it in order to take a break or cover medical procedures of their own. Alternatively, it can be seen as a permanent arrangement. BSH offers live-in care for clients with complex care needs, who require consistent support in their home environment. 24-hour care is delivered by a care team who work in shifts day and night.
All our care is delivered in collaboration with clients and family carers. Rather than care professionals taking the decisions about a client’s care package, we discuss with clients and their support network what care they consider most appropriate.
Research shows that when clients are involved in determining the care they receive, they tend to be more independent and adhere more stringently to their care plans. Other benefits include:
