We all grow old, it’s a fact of life – but this doesn’t mean we need to stop enjoying doing the things we love.
As we age, it's a natural part of life, but it doesn't mean we have to give up the activities we enjoy. However, due to busy work schedules of children, grandchildren, and relatives, finding time to provide the necessary care for aging parents and grandparents can be challenging.
The typical option might be a care home, but the high cost and the thought of leaving the familiar surroundings and people behind may not be ideal for you or your loved ones.
Kare Plus Ashford offers a solution with our elderly home care service, addressing all these concerns. It provides an affordable alternative to care homes and alleviates the stress and worry for relatives. We provide personalised care and support to elderly individuals, allowing them to maintain the lifestyle they desire.
With the guidance of our Registered Care Managers, we collaborate with you and your family to develop a tailored care plan that meets your specific needs and preferences. Whether it's a brief check-in, safety measures, or extended care, our services range from routine checks and reminders to complex medical care. We also recognise the importance of companionship and ensure that the same team of caregivers visits consistently, allowing for a trusting relationship to form and the best possible care to be delivered.
The Cost of Care
Did you know that care homes in the UK on average cost anywhere between £27,000-£39,000 per year, increasing to £35,000-£55,000 if nursing is also required?
Overall the lowest average cost for care, is more than the average UK salary, and even with government support most people in need of care could find themselves depleting their savings and assets to get the vital support they need.
The last few years has seen a rise in Live-in Care which aims to offer an affordable alternative to standard residential care homes. Invidiuals also benefit as they can remain in their own homes. This helps to maintain their dignity, memories and sense of familiarity not only for their surroundings, but also their community.
What is Elderly Care?
This type of care refers to the services and support provided to older adults who may require assistance with daily activities, healthcare, and overall well-being. It encompasses a wide range of care options and settings, including home care, care homes (also known as nursing homes or residential care homes), assisted living facilities, and specialised dementia care units.
Elderly care aims to ensure the safety, comfort, and quality of life for older individuals who may have physical, cognitive, or medical needs that require assistance. The services provided can include personal care such as bathing, dressing, and medication management, as well as practical support with household tasks, meal preparation, and transportation.
Care in the UK is regulated and monitored by various bodies, such as the Care Quality Commission (CQC), which ensures that care providers meet specific standards of safety, quality, and service delivery. Overall, elderly care aims to promote the well-being and independence of older adults, while providing the necessary support and assistance to enhance their quality of life.
