Growing older shouldn’t mean losing independence. Careline Homecare is a leading provider of care services for the elderly, helping the aged to live as comfortably as possible in the known surroundings of their own homes.
Careline care assistants help with everyday tasks like housework, shopping, laundry, correspondence and general life admin, all the way through to help with personal care and higher-level clinical or nursing support. Often, our staff assist elderly clients with their family and social lives, too, helping them make visits to friends, loved ones and social calls.
In addition to general support for the aged, Careline Homecare specialises in assisting clients with age-related conditions like dementia and Parkinson’s. Careline Homecare’s elderly services are highly-personalised. All care plans are compiled together with clients, taking into account particular requirements that are measured against goals set out at the beginning of the care programme. This forms part of Careline Homecare’s person-centred approach where clients are key to having choice and control over how their care is administered.
Our highly-trained care assistants are carefully selected to suit an individual client’s needs, both in terms of skill-set and personality. We aim to provide companions for the duration of care, not just care professionals.
At some point in life, most of us will face a set-back due to accident, injury or illness that leaves us very much in need of help to get back on our feet. Careline Homecare offers specialist reablement teams to assist with that very process.
Coming home from hospital can be a daunting experience, particularly when faced with a potentially lengthy rehabilitation and recuperation process. There may be a loss of physical capacity or perhaps the need to regain lost confidence in doing even the smallest things.
Our reablement teams are specially-trained for such instances and are able to work with occupational therapists, physios, nurses and related professionals to aid clients get back into form.
According to the Department of Health, successful reablement programmes reduce the need for long-term care. Careline Homecare are experts in facilitating this process. Unlike some other approaches to care support, our reablement programmes place an emphasis on supporting the individual help themselves. Short and long-term goal-setting allows the service user to make small steps towards independence. Together with our experienced and highly-trained staff, our clients will gradually stretch the limits to hit their desired goals, growing in ability and skill.
Supporting people with physical disabilities
Specialist care needs shouldn’t prevent anyone from living life to the full. That’s why it’s a key aim of Careline Homecare, and our care assistants, to enable clients to live active and independent lives.
Helping with a complete range of daily chores, activities and overall care, our care assistants lend a hand wherever possible with the intent of enabling clients to remain active, both inside and outside of home.
Each client has a care plan tailored specifically to their needs, preferences and eventual goals. The forms a fundamental part of Careline Homecare’s ‘person-centred’, outcomes-focused approach. Choice and control are core to what we offer.
As a client, your dedicated care assistant will be matched to suit your particular situation. This not only extends to adults but to children and young people, too, with additional training and checks undertaken with our services for younger people, helping them to enjoy an active and best possible start in life.
Support for people with learning disabilities
At Careline Homecare, we feel that those requiring specialist support for learning disabilities should not forgo living life to the fullest. Our care assistants provide specifically-required support, be it in a client’s own home or within supported living, to help them remain independent and active.
We employ a ‘people-first’ approach, insuring our clients are front and centre in the decisions made for, or about, them, often consulting family members if required. We look to enable clients to make as many choices and decisions on their own as possibles but, in the unfortunate circumstance they’re unable to, we strive to make those key decision in their best interests.
While some clients with learning difficulties may present challenging behaviour, our specially-trained staff are skilled at managing difficult and sensitive situations that always protect the rights, dignity and safety of all concerned.
Careline Homecare has supported hundreds of people with learning disabilities, helping maximise independence no matter the severity of their disability. Pairing the right care assistants with clients that have particular needs and requirements is crucial, further building trust, companionship and overall quality of life.
End of Life Care
Just as every person has the right to live a life of their choosing in dignity, so we believe that everyone should have the right to die in the similar manner. Our specialist end of life care assistant teams help many people with terminal illnesses pass away at home in the way they feel most comfortable, often surrounded by family and loved ones.
Working closely with palliative care teams, our end of life teams help clients plan and manage their final weeks, days and hours of life, managing pain and discomfort and putting into effect agreed plans of care. Our staff are trained and supported to understand and cope with the unique challenges and pressures of this type of care, providing unobtrusive, sensitive support that promotes dignity.
Receiving end of life care at home, rather than in a hospital or hospice, allows the client to be close to their family and to draw comfort from familiar surroundings. Family members can also rest assured that their loved one is receiving a personalised programme of care, helping raise the quality of the time they have left.
