Emergency Care At Home Service
Lincolnshire & Yorkshire
The need for care assistance can come from nowhere and you may find yourself or your loved ones in a position of needing a carer to make life a little easier.
Care homes may not be an option for many people, especially if you wish to retain some independence, do not fall into the category of requiring full time care or wish to remain in the familiar surroundings of your home.
Emergency Carers As Quickly As You Need Them
No one chooses to be in the position of requiring a carer but we understand that circumstances change and seeking help can often be a timely and difficult process.
The Great Care Co has created a simple process to assess your needs, match you with the right carers and see to it that you are supported every step of the way. Instead of a long wait, we aim to get a carer to you as soon as you require, for as long as you need.
Mental and physical wellbeing is always best when the surroundings are familiar and friendly faces are present. We ensure that carers are matched to everyone in our care and ideally suited and trained to take care of your needs.
It may require long-term or short-term recovery whilst aiding through a trying time. Let us assure you that our friendly, caring staff will become an extension of your family and provide the support you need for as long as you need it.
Question: What Is Emergency Care?
Emergency care covers any illness, injury or condition that occurs quickly, out of the blue. Whether this is due to a fall, a sudden injury or a shock diagnosis of a short or long term condition, we know circumstances can change quickly. Emergency carers are there to help take the strain and provide support.
Carers for emergency care cases have to be adaptable and well trained to face any eventuality that may occur. It is important to identify dangers, provide comfort, administer medication and do many of the day-to-day tasks that may be difficult for those in care.
Emergency care can take many forms but it is vital that the levels of attention, support and love are consistent. The healing process is always easier in your own home, even if some adjustments are required to make it more suitable for everyday life.
The Best Place For Emergency Care Emergency Care At Home Vs Hospitals & Care Homes
In some cases, it may be possible to use the NHS for a period of time to aid recovery. We'd never recommend moving someone against medical advice. There may, however, come a time when a patient is discharged or the benefits of being at home outweigh the reasons to remain in the care of the NHS or a care home.
Private emergency care is not always suitable for everyone, though it may be a lot more preferable than no help at all or full-time care within a hospital, hospice, care home or institution.
We operate a one-on-one ratio for carers to patients, ensuring that consistent staff and familiar faces are all part of the service. We understand that remaining in your own home, surrounded by familiar faces, furnishings and objects may speed up the recovery process or provide more comfort than the alternatives.
Our care staff are matched to you; ensuring a bond that cannot be broken. More than just carers, we want your personalities and interests to overlap.
Support workers should provide companionship, activities and conversations as well as the duty of care you expect.
A safe, loving, caring environment is at the forefront of our company values. We believe the combination of your home and our care staff will provide much-needed support at a difficult time to aid the healing process.
