We agree a ‘Care Plan’ which details exactly what you have instructed us to do. This then becomes the work list for each day. As part of our ongoing and unique relationship with pharmacies, we are also able to assist or administer your medication.
Care plans frequently evolve and we check regularly to ensure that the care we are providing is appropriate.
Once we have established exactly what you want on each visit, we will work to that list. We are not able to give injections or change sterile dressings. Also, we cannot carry out tasks which are likely to cause risk to either the person we provide care to or to the Care worker. Tasks will be agreed with you in advance. Any changes to the plan can be discussed with our team.
This depends on how many care visits you have each week. We very rarely have just one care worker assigned to a particular customer. This allows for periods of time where your care worker may be away on holiday, however we do try to keep the number of your care workers to an absolute minimum.
Every member of our team has been through a rigorous vetting procedure before they start working with us. In addition, all staff will always be in uniform and carry a personalised identification card which shows their name, photograph and signature.
We take a considered and comprehensive approach to ensuring that your care service is exactly what is required. After every visit the care worker will write the details of activities undertaken during the visit in the care record (which is retained by the customer). In addition, the customer is asked to record their satisfaction by signing the care worker’s timesheet, which is returned to our office each week for checking.
We will put together a detailed plan for each customer which, as well as setting out the care to be delivered, also shows the weekly costs. Some people will be entitled to assistance with the cost of their care either from their local Social Services office or via other Government grants.
Our experience tells us that people’s care needs very often change. We therefore understand that care may need reviewing from time to time. This is why we carry out reviews on a regular basis and why we are pleased to hear from members of the immediate family about effective methods for delivering the care service for their relative.
