“I can’t believe the difference in my health!

When Richard’s family contacted us in Richard was quite unwell and he was in bed, permanently in his pyjamas, very incontinent and it was suggested that at 90 years old there would only be a short time left. They had started to look at care homes for 24 hour care and support, however Richard had other ideas – he wanted to stay at home. Although the family were able to support Richard during the day – it was at night they were more concerned about as he had extremely poor sleep patterns and often cryed out during the night being and was extremely anxious and unsettled. 24 hour care and support was needed.

Live-in care solution

After some initial enquiries a health care professional advised they use a live in care agency and Independent People Homecare came highly recommended. After the initial care assessessment, Richard was adamant he wanted a male carer, so after looking at a few carer profiles we matched Richard with Gerard, one of our male live-in carers who as very gregarious and had a wealth of care experience. Gerard has helped to make a massive difference to Richard’s life. His health has improved significantly – especially his strength. 12 months later, Richard is a different person – each morning he is up, dressed and comfortable in his armchair eating well, chatting, reading his newspaper and watching the television.

Would Richard recommend live-in care?

Richard can’t quite believe how live in care has improved his life “I can’t believe the difference in my health – having a live-in carer has definitely helped my health improve “ And what would Richard say to other people considering live-in care? “Don’t hesitate…it is a very good idea“
