Choosing the right care option for yourself or a loved one is a significant life decision. There are lots of factors to consider before making the decision including the level of care required, various personal circumstances, cost, specialist care needs and much more.
It is therefore important to take time to consider all the options available to you or your loved one in order to make an informed decision, best suited to their individual needs.
Our homecare division specialises in providing care in the home, an increasingly popular option amongst care users and their families since the Coronavirus pandemic.
Receiving care in the home means you or your loved one can remain in their home for as long as possible, surrounded by home comforts and familiarity as well as maintaining independence.
Ultimately, it’s all about choice.
Understanding the options that are available to you and choosing the best care plan for you.
We are firm believers in transparency at Paterson health & Social Care, so here are just five reasons why you should consider us to deliver your homecare needs.
Your Best Interests at Heart
We recognise that no two individuals are the same and so one of our highly qualified nurses will always carry out a detailed care needs assessment in the first instance. By getting to know you, or your loved one we will be able to determine the level of care required and the options available. Following the assessment, we will discuss all of the options available to you. Together, we will consult with all the appropriate parties including your family and anyone currently involved in providing care and will agree upon your personalised care plan. It is our mission to ensure that all care plans are a perfect fit for your physical, emotional and social needs and goals.
Whether you are living with a complex medical condition or need a bit of extra support with personal care, assistance with medication, accompanying to appointments, mobility and safety and light housework, Paterson Health and Social Care can help.
