Live-in home help services are the beating heart of continuous, round-the-clock nursing care. That means more than simply supporting practical requirements like assisting with medication, carrying out simple treatments and assessments, or attending to personal care. Live-in carers can also support with everyday domestic tasks and much more for patients in the home, and Caring Hands are proud to offer the comprehensive nursing care service Lancashire residents deserve.
Maintaining high standards of hygiene
For most of us, our home is our castle, but if you struggle with mobility or need regular medical support, it can be difficult to keep everything clean and tidy all the time. Keeping on top of the build-up of household tasks like cleaning, dusting and vacuuming can be overwhelming and an obstacle to your health and wellbeing. With live-in nursing care, you don’t need to worry about this – your on-hand nursing carer can take care of these jobs, freeing you up to focus on what is really important in your own life.
Managing the laundry
A mountain of laundry can be a source of great stress, and washing, drying, ironing and folding clothes or towels for the week ahead makes it seem insurmountable. If you’re struggling with these everyday tasks, live-in nursing care can pick up the slack. From handwashing your delicate items to hanging the washing out to dry, you can depend on your live-in carer to ensure you always have clean bedding and clothes when you need them.
Preparing meals for nutritional health
We all miss the odd meal, but consistently missing mealtimes can be dangerous, particularly if you have special dietary needs. Part of live-in nursing care entails preparing nutritious and healthy meals at regular intervals, as well as keeping up your fluids and providing regular snacks throughout the day. And if you want a little company while you eat, your carer will always be happy to sit with you and talk about your day.
Home nursing care can help you stay on top of your errands even when you aren’t up to it. Whether you need something from the supermarket, need to pay a bill or post a birthday card, your nurse can help by accompanying you or helping you put together a shopping list. They will also be on hand to ensure you can navigate your home safely and get further support if something goes wrong.
Everyone has their own routines, and some areas of life and individuals will need more help than others. With our range of nursing services, you can access the level of assistance you need. Whether you are considering options for yourself or someone close to you, our advisers are available to discuss your needs and walk you through the process of live-in nursing care in Lancashire.
