Understand what it means. What Is High Dependency Care?
High-dependency care covers any form of care which includes recovery from an illness or operation and ongoing care for chronic conditions where specialised, trained carers are needed. Patients with high-dependency needs often require around-the-clock care from suitable people who have a good understanding of the medical condition, any equipment being used and the ability to perform vital observations that will ensure the patient's safety.
Typically, this type of care would not cover people in critical conditions and the length of time required for the care will vary from patient to patient. Chronic illnesses may require ongoing around-the-clock care whilst recovery from an operation, accident or illness may only necessitate assistance for set times and specific actions.
Private, affordable support: Home Carers For People With High Dependency Needs
High Dependency Home Care bridges the gap between hospital discharge and ongoing care needs. It is a preferable alternative to care homes and allows loved ones to receive the treatment they need without compromising on the levels of treatment.
Home care staff will often need special training to understand the physical needs of the client, the machinery they may be reliant on as well as tending to the emotional wellbeing of the person and their family. Supporting the loved ones is every bit as important as ensuring the client is well looked after.
The Great Care Company works with people who have high-dependency needs in Lincolnshire and Yorkshire. We build custom care packages that suit your requirements and budget. No two clients will ever be the same and we allow the freedom to chat with our team and select the correct course of action to support you. Care should never be a compromise.
Our role is to give you the best possible life experience and provide respite for loved ones who may be undertaking the role of carers.
Our qualified, experienced care staff will provide the support you need, when you need it, for as long as it is needed. We can assist with everything from ongoing chores around your home like cleaning, cooking, and washing to feeding to medication administration, therapies and the physically-demanding tasks that may be proving difficult.
We're here to help over a short or long-term period of time at relatively short notice. We try to arrange a suitable home carer or small team within a matter of days, once we have all the information we need.
The Great Care Company is here to provide, the support, companionship and assistance needed to make things easier for you. We want you to feel confident and get the most out of your life.
Tailoring our service for you: What Can High-Dependency Home Care Include?
Cleaning & Personal Hygiene
Washing can be difficult when someone has high-dependency requirements. It may be physically challenging or embarrassing for loved ones. Our carers can help maintain standards of privacy and dignity.
Goals & Routines
It's important to set milestones for recovery or set times when certain treatments should be conducted or medication is to be taken. Based on medical recommendations, we'll ensure that schedules are kept and goals are acheived.
Ongoing Therapies & Machine Operation
Everything from prescription pickups, to medical administration and physical therapies, should be adhered to. We'll ensure our care staff are correctly qualified and experienced to understand what they need to do and able to assist in the ways that you want.
Eating & Drinking
The process of food and hydration may be difficult when a person is in high dependency care. We'll assist with meal plans, cooking and feeding. Often this may be a specialised process which may involve feeding tubes, drips or a restricted diet. We'll help on every level.
Flexible Hours Or Around-The-Clock Care
Each case for high-dependency care is unique. We'll take the time to understand your needs and build a home care plan that suits you. You'll only ever pay for the services you receive with no hidden extras or surprise costs.
General Housekeeping & Laundry
Sometimes, when care is required, every things can take a bit of a back seat on the priority list; understandably so. We can arrange help with things like cleaning, hoovering, tidying up and washing clothes, should you want us to.
Life Without Restrictions
Unlike care homes, we do not dictate who visits or when. The great thing about home care is that you'll be able to enjoy the things you want, as and when you want to do them. Our carers will even assist with your pets and provide a familiar face for you and your loved ones.
Providing Valued Companionship
Our care staff are here to make you feel valued and encouraged. We'll support the person with the high-dependency needs as well as their loved ones. We're a shoulder to cry on and an ear to listen to when needed, as well as bringing the positivity to hit the next milestone to recovery.
