What is at Home Care for the Elderly?
At home care for the elderly enables an independent lifestyle. ‘Home care’ is the umbrella term given to care services provided at home on a live-in or visiting basis. It promotes independence, prioritising the patient's quality of life. We understand that there will be times where there will be the need for extra support. It's what prompted us to start providing home care for the elderly.
Whether it’s general assistance around the house, personal care, medication or similar circumstances, your carer will commit to providing support that brings you peace of mind.

A homecare provider has an important and necessary role in the life of a patient. As such, someone hiring a homecare provider on their behalf needs to have confidence and place trust in that person. We appreciate this.
If you are looking to hire a homecare provider, there are a number of qualifications and training programmes that you should be aware of. Any professional homecare provider will have the following, and should be transparent about the accreditation they hold.
Common examples include Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) or Home Health Aide (HHA) accreditation. As well as formal qualifications, your care provider should have ample experience, glowing client references, great communication skills and an empathic and compassionate personality.
We encourage you to enquire about any qualifications or training prior to hiring a care provider.
The initial stages of setting up care for the elderly can be challenging. The logistics of finding the right carer is difficult. However, once you do find the right person it can be hugely rewarding.
Finding the right homecare provider starts with assessing the level of support needed. The elderly need varying levels of care, depending on their unique circumstances. Once you understand what level of support is needed, and what exactly they require assistance with, you can begin to explore agencies and their team members.
If you have found someone you believe would be suitable, it is important to have a consultation in which you explore their qualifications and training. This also gives you the opportunity to outline what is expected of them, so everyone is on the same page.
Finally, you can introduce the caregiver and the patient. A tour of the home would be beneficial, and you can outline any final requirements.
