Who Is Residential Care For?
If you’ve reached a point in your life where you’re considering assisted living, it’s likely that you’ve come across the term Residential Care. If this is the case, you may have some questions regarding whether you qualify for it and what is on offer. In order to help with this, we’ve put together the following guide.
Do I Qualify For Residential Care?
Here at Lovett Care, we provide residential care across Staffordshire and Cheshire for people aged over 65 and above. Residential care is targeted at helping those who can no longer safely take part in daily activities. In terms of what we can help you with, we’ve put together the following non-exhaustive list:
- Taking Medication
- General Mobility
If you struggle to keep up with these daily tasks each day, you may wish to start considering residential care. Depending on your current capabilities and condition, you may wish to start small with an overnight stay a week or maybe even a couple of days at a time. Over time if you get to a point when you feel as though it would be easier to move into the home, you’ll be more than welcome.
What are the Benefits of Residential Care?
As we’ve already discussed, our residential services can take some of the pressures of day-to-day living off your shoulders. Not only does this mean that you’ll be less exhausted, but it also means that you’ll have time for the things that you’ve been wanting to get around to. Another benefit is having access to 24/7 support from our qualified carers. As we at Lovett Care believe in a philosophy based on choice, you will be in control of how independent you would like to be. Not only that, but at the start of your care, our carers will work with you to develop a personalised care plan that suits your needs and the way that you like to do things.
This plan can also create a safe environment to make you feel confident enough to take part in activities that you would have previously worried about. Another big benefit of coming to stay with us at one of our care homes in Staffordshire and Cheshire is the social aspect. We want to make sure that you avoid any feelings of loneliness and isolation and even if it’s only one stay per week, it can make all the difference to have that interaction with carers and other residents.
