Care home or care at home?
The realisation that your loved one needs extra support is often coupled with confusion and worry. But the decision between care at home and entering a care home doesn’t have to be overwhelming. We encourage all families to discuss their options and come to a shared decision. Below, we have listed some important points to consider when choosing care.
Points to consider when choosing care
Does the provider offer specialised care based on your condition? Specialised care is important, particularly when your family member has a medical illness with particular requirements. At Aspire UK, we have staff trained to assist people with a range of illnesses, conditions and independence levels. We care for anyone 18 years or older requiring support to live independently. This includes people with physical or learning disabilities, and medical conditions like Parkinson’s, End of Life Care, MS, MND, Dementia/Alzheimer’s and post-stroke recovery.
How much do you love and value home? A home is not only comfortable and familiar, it is also a place of great sentimental value. If staying at home is a priority for your family member, home care is an excellent choice.
How much support do you need? Some people require 24/7 care, while others only need a daily check-in. We offer flexible packages designed to suit your unique needs, with support available from one hour, up to 24 hours a day.
At Aspire UK, we encourage our clients to remain active in their communities with social outings, day care opportunities and social outings. Staying at home is an excellent choice if you value your current lifestyle but need some extra help to achieve daily tasks confidently.
What is important to you? At Aspire UK, we greatly value independence, choice and dignity for our clients. If staying at home is important to you, our team can facilitate your needs.
