For many people experiencing what you are going through, there is a gnawing sense of dread and anxiety about the direction that life is about to take. It can seem as though there is no option but to sell up a family home, scatter possessions to the wind and take up residence in a boxy room in a residential home.
Well guess what? Ranger Home Care have another option – Live‑in care.
What is live‑in care?
Live‑in care is not only a viable alternative to a care home, but it is a cheaper alternative too. It is also the best choice for regaining a quality of life with minimal stress, because very little actually changes in your home life or your routine.
Unlike in a care home, you maintain your independence and freedom of choice when watching TV, you maintain control of the remote and you choose your breakfast, lunch and dinner. We are just there to help you make it happen. We are there for you.
We have a simple ethos. If we wouldn’t welcome one of our carers into our own home, we wouldn’t send them to yours.
Let’s talk about our carers. We hand-pick them and have extremely high standards. Our carers need to be effective communicators, be respectful and compassionate and understand that working for Ranger Home Care means adhering to the highest standards when it comes to our duty of care.
There is a simple process involved which begins with us meeting the client, and the client’s family. If you like us, then we proceed to step 2, which is finding you a compatible carer. This is somebody qualified to deal with your requirements, but also someone you are going to get along with, as you will be spending a lot of time with them.
We’ll be honest: sometimes clients and carers don’t hit it off and that’s fine. We will find you someone else very quickly if that is the case. Ranger Home Care will also liaise with external parties (such as GPs, Physiotherapists and Occupational Health) to ensure we are all reading from the same page and delivering your care to meet your requirements, including making sure all necessary equipment is in place.
If it all sounds quite straightforward, well that’s because it really can be! You can start the ball rolling with a simple chat. 01252 850040
