For nearly a decade now Bedfordshire Supported Housing has been providing domiciliary services to clients who require support in order to live at home. We are committed to helping our clients remain independent and live the lives they choose. BSH personalised domiciliary care services in Bedfordshire are available to all adults needing support.
Our care workers combine skills, versatility, and experience in order to provide care in varying environments and circumstances. BSH care packages are designed around our clients, taking into consideration their age, lifestyle preferences, culture, and spiritual choices.
BSH offers personalised home care services for elderly clients. This may involve light touch services such as shopping, cleaning, cooking simple meals, or checking in with reminders to eat, maintain a fluid intake or take medication at set times.
Our domiciliary care includes support for clients living with dementia. The care we offer is tailored to the stage of dementia we are dealing with, from early onset right through to the more severe symptoms. All dementia care packages are created in close consultation with our client and their families to ensure that plans for each stage provide the specific care required.
Much of the work we do at Bedfordshire Supported Housing involves helping clients with learning difficulties to live as independently as possible and meet their personal goals. The domiciliary care we offer is tailored to an individual’s needs, so we can accompany someone to an educational course, for example, or provide meals whilst they’re on work placement.
Domiciliary care services in Bedfordshire include preparing meals, personal care, befriending, therapeutic engagement, medication management and being a companion when attending a job interview, or social occasion. Kindness and compassion are at the heart of all we do at BSH.
For clients who require respite care, or 24/7 home care services we can offer a live-in carer, or 24/7 care provided by a care team. We begin by carrying out an initial detailed assessment, including a risk assessment, in order to put in place a care plan that is appropriate to their environment and their physical needs.
BSH care givers also support clients who decide that they would like to die at home. Our trained carers are able to offer round-the-clock palliative care which prioritises their comfort, dignity and wishes for this period. We work in collaboration with other services, where necessary, such as the continuing healthcare team, district nurses and Partnership for Excellence in Palliative Support (PEPS).
