Before Rosemary came to live in Louth, she ran boarding kennels and looked after all sorts of animals. She had a lovely life that was full and rich with activities that she shared with her loving husband and son Andrew. However, getting older made it impossible for Rosemary to continue with the activities she loved, and her own home health situation became such that care was required above and beyond what she and her family could support.
Step Forward The Great Care Company
Her son, Andrew, spoke to us about how his mother was really struggling with looking after herself and that they had begun to look at ways to help her, including the possibility of moving into a nursing home. However, Rosemary wasn’t keen on the idea and wanted to stay in her own home with her memories, especially those she had shared with her husband.
In the end, Rosemary and Andrew decided to look at home health care and contacted the award-winning team here at The Great Care Company.
Rosemary heard about The Great Care Company through her friend Enid and after an initial meeting where Rosemary’s needs were discussed, they explained what they could provide and how they could help her. Andrew was particularly impressed by what The Great Care Company could provide and was happy that they could give his mother the sort of home health help that she needed.
Why Rosemary Chose Home Health Care
Living in the same house for many years fills it with memories, and for Rosemary, being close to these memories was incredibly important.
Her husband had passed away, but he was still with her in her heart and she was surrounded by his memories. Leaving this behind was too much to bear and wasn’t something that Andrew could contemplate taking away from her.
This is a similar situation to what many other older people face every year and is something that The Great Care Company are proud to offer a solution to. Home health care allows people with health care requirements to stay in the homes they love so dearly.
What We Do For Rosemary
Rosemary now has visits from our team 3 times a day and speaks very highly of her carers. She told us that they will do anything for you and have even become great friends. While The Great Care Company team offer Rosemary all the usual help with cooking, cleaning, and medication, they also provide her with so much more: the companionship she needs and the ability to stay in her own home so she can feel independent.
For older people just taking the time to have a chat or to drink a cup of tea with them can make a massive difference and provide them with meaningful interactions not based on the level of care they require.
What Rosemary Thinks Of Our Home Health Care Team
There’s no doubt that Rosemary thinks highly of the care and support she receives from The Great Care Company and she had this to say about our team:
The Care Company are wonderful. The carers would do anything for you… I don’t think I’ve ever met such a lovely number of carers like that before…
I would advise anybody, really mean it, go to the Great Care Company.
