Peace of mind for rural families
When it comes to arranging care, what are the options? For people who have grown up in, or lived in, a close-knit rural community for years, the idea of having to leave can be hard to bear. When you’ve lived in a house and an area you’ve loved for years, you’ll have developed quite a collection of possessions that help you feel safe and comfortable. So to remain surrounded by them and able to see them every day is of huge comfort, especially if you’re dealing with an illness or living with dementia.
Live-in care in your own home can fulfil a key role for care within remote communities.
If you live rurally, friends and family can find it difficult to visit on a regular basis. With live-in care, you’ll have someone there to offer companionship, help around the home, and support. All our carers are trained in first aid, giving you extra reassurance in an emergency. And if your carer needs additional support, they will have access to a 24/7 dedicated emergency line to get advice from a trained professional.
Whether it’s pottering in the garden, feeding the birds or attending the weekly Bingo at the community centre, the routines and habits you build up when you live in a rural community will be different to those you would have available if you moved to a city. With a live-in carer you’ll be able to keep doing the things you love for longer.
If your carer has their driver’s licence, they’ll be able to help you get to where you need to go, take you shopping to the supermarket, run errands and deliver you to appointments with health care providers. All of which might become tricky were you to live alone in the countryside.
The type of support we provide depends on your needs, your interests and your wellbeing.
Your personal care plan will be developed by an experienced care manager who understands the challenges you’re facing.
Whether you prefer quiet or conversation, we’ll match you with a carer who is a good fit for you and is sensitive to your preferences.
We’ll review your care plan regularly to check we’re still meeting your needs. And we’ll take a collaborative approach to key decisions or changes that need to be made.
Promedica24 is planning to expand its provision of care into more rural areas, such as The Lake District and The New Forest. That’s because we understand that the unique benefits of live-in care are perfectly suited to people living in a rural context.
Stay in your own home for longer with compassionate care. Because losing your independence doesn’t need to be the next step.
