Bedfordshire Supported Housing has been providing home care packages across the county over the past decade. Our clients wish to live independently at home but require support in order to be able to do so. We help them to achieve this. Our personalised domiciliary care packages are available to adults, including the elderly.
BSH care workers have the experience, skills and versatility which allow them to deliver support for adults of all ages, with varying needs and conditions. When designing home care packages for Bedfordshire clients, we always take into consideration their cultural, spiritual and lifestyle preferences.
The home care packages we offer are person-centred, in that they are developed in collaboration with clients. Whatever their goals, our support is designed to help them to succeed. If, for example, a client is taking up a work placement, we can provide support by cooking meals or cleaning, to help them adapt to changing circumstances.
Family members are often the primary carers for adults with learning difficulties living at home. Our home care packages can offer respite breaks. This might take the form of weekly scheduled visits, or live-in care to cover a holiday period. Home care includes preparing meals, personal care, medication management, therapeutic engagement, befriending and accompanying someone to a social event, or job interview.
Many older clients living at home require only light touch care to support them. This may include light cleaning duties, cooking meals, shopping trips, or regular calls to check in on medication and hydration.
Our specialist dementia care in Bedfordshire provides tailored support, whatever the severity of the symptoms. At BSH we can fulfil the level of care required in order for clients to continue living at home with dementia. This may involve 24-hour care, provided by a professional team, or live-in care.
If a client requires a 24-hour home care package, we ensure that they receive the appropriate support for their needs. We carry out a detailed assessment, including a risk assessment, before putting in place a care plan which will be delivered by a team, or a live-in carer.
When someone makes the decision to die at home, BSH carers can support them through their final days, weeks, or months. We can offer 24-hour palliative care to people, ensuring that they are kept as comfortable as possible, and are given compassionate support right up until the end of their lives.
