How does it work?
Call us now on 01 8338000 for an enquiry and we will answer any of the questions you might have. One of our client care managers can then call out to your premises and assess the situation in order to identify the needs of the client, we will also carry out a risk assessment. They will advise on what level of care may be appropriate and the tasks and activities that the carer should carry out. At this time, family members can also discuss any concerns that they may have.
Our Client Care Manager, in consultation with the family and the client will then put together an individualised care plan. This will be very in-depth and will have a schedule of tasks, times, roles and responsibilities of the carer. A client and carer factor match will also be conducted in order to identify exactly what type of carer is needed. Factors include; experience, age, gender, etc…
An introduction meeting will then be set up between the client and carer to ensure that both are satisfied and care will start as soon as all these factors have been put in place.
