Home Instead Poole, which is based in Poole, UK, is offering elderly home care services that are tailor-fitted to the elderly and the family’s needs. This offers a viable alternative to the elderly going to residential care homes where they will need to live in unfamiliar surroundings. With home care, elderly loved ones get to remain in their home in familiar surroundings and in the company of their loved ones. The home care services include home help, companionship at home, personal care, and overnight care. Home Instead Poole offers services in Poole, Ferndown, Oakdale, Hamworthy, Whitecliff, and neighbouring areas.
They offer domiciliary care home visits that can help an elderly loved one retain their independence and continue to stay in their familiar surroundings. Greg Harrold, Director at Home Instead, says, “Home visits from a Home Instead Care Professional can help you to enjoy an independent and fulfilled life, living well at home, your way. We provide a range of domiciliary care services that are tailored to suit your needs – from helping with household tasks or companionship, to assisting with personal care and specialist care.”
Companionship at home can offer various services for the elderly loved one. These include: helping the client and the elderly loved one remain active; ensuring the client and loved one have company and someone to socialise with; build the elderly’s confidence in going outside the home; encourage participation in activities outside and inside the home; and help family members take a rest from caring with peace of mind.
As part of their home care services, they also offer personal care services to make sure that care and support is delivered with dignity and a commitment to empowering the elderly loved one to remain independent. With the understanding that everyone is unique, they will work with the client and the elderly loved one to come up with a detailed tailor-fitted home care plan. They will make sure that the personal care provided: is dignified and respectful; maintains the individual’s preferred routine and lifestyle; takes place in the home; gives peace of mind that one’s elderly loved one is being cared for; helps family members take a rest from caring; and allows elderly loved one to continue living at home.
They can also provide home and housekeeping services. These include general household activities such as dusting, vacuuming, laundry, ironing, feeding family pets, and putting the trash bins out. For the client, home care: means there is no need to worry about the housework; helps to keep the home tidy and clean; means the client can socialise with the elderly loved one instead of doing the housework; gives companionship; and offers peace of mind that someone is taking care of their loved one while they are not there.
Home Instead Poole also provides overnight care to provide the client peace of mind in the knowledge that someone is taking care of their elderly loved one during the night. Whether the need is for a sleep-in service or a waking night service, the overnight care provided is custom-fitted to whatever the client may require. Greg Harrold says, “Overnight care is perfect for those who are elderly or unwell, and may either require frequent assistance during the night hours – such as with administering medication or help reaching the bathroom – or who simply want a comforting presence nearby should they need it.”
Established in 1994 by Paul and Lori Hogan, Home Instead Poole aims to provide the elderly a positive ageing experience in their own homes. The founders had actually experienced the problems that dozens of other families had faced, while trying to keep their 89-year-old grandmother safe and healthy at home. She became their first client and since then, the company has evolved into one of the leading global home care networks, offering the required support for over 100,000 seniors. In 2021, the company was acquired by Honor. In 2022, they were given the Best Home Care Group recognition in the 2022 Home Care Awards.
