At Allwell Care, one of our most popular services is our Companionship Care Service. The service primarily focuses on preventing the onset of loneliness which unfortunately is an issue affecting many of the elderly community today. Loneliness can lead to the development of mental health issues as well as the exacerbation of physical health issues, making companionship care services instrumental in supporting the elderly community. There is flexibility within companion care services too, with carers being able to visit residents as little as a few hours a week to visiting daily.
The role of a home care provider is to alleviate the responsibilities of a patient, enabling them to conserve their energy to allow them to spend their time on their own enjoyment. At Allwell Care, our home care providers assist individuals with a range of everyday tasks. These can include the following and many more.
Food shopping and preparation
General housekeeping (e.g cleaning)
Running general errands (e.g collecting prescriptions)
Offering friendly companionship
It is important to us that our patients only do what they feel strong enough to, that’s why we aim to lessen their load and assist them in maintaining their home and lifestyle.
When choosing the type of care that best suits you or your loved one, it is vital to determine what their exact needs are. Choosing home care suits those who want to live independently, with assistance where and when they need it. Home care allows for patients to stay in a familiar environment and be around all their home comforts. It eliminates the stress from the transition into assisted living as carers come to them, in their own home. Additionally, in most cases home care can be more cost effective than moving into a care home, making our home care services at Allwell care a great option for those who need it.

Dementia is the name given to a group of symptoms that cause a decline in mental ability. Alzheimers is a specific type of dementia that affects thought, memory, and behaviours. Alzheimer's disease is the most common form of dementia. The symptoms of dementia get more severe as time progresses.
So while Alzheimer's disease is a specific disease, dementia is a more general term which describes a set of symptoms. Dementia and Alzheimer's disease can be incredibly difficult to manage, contact our team today to discuss a dementia home care plan.
