Here at Shaw, we respect and understand the decision of wanting to live more independently at home.
The concept of care is a delicate topic for many people, which is why it’s important to consider all options that are available when it comes down to choosing the right level of care you require.
Although living at home may seem ideal in terms of maintaining independence, it can become more challenging to live independently, especially if you’re physically frail or suffer from dementia. Ordinary daily tasks can become more challenging, meaning the individual can become more frustrated. Receiving extra support at home is often the first choice regarding elderly care. Care in your own home, otherwise known as domiciliary care, is an ideal care option for anyone who requires support, but wishes to remain in a familiar environment. Activities such as cooking, cleaning and washing can be assisted by a carer in your own home.
For more information on domiciliary care and other care support services for the elderly, please call Shaw Healthcare on 0800 902 0092, or My Care My Home on 0800 731 8470.
