The type of care that covers the initial period of recovery back at home (approximately six weeks) after a period of hospitalisation is known as Reablement Care.
It is our belief at Amily that a person should receive sound care throughout the recovery procedure, whether it be as a result of an operation or other circumstances. Returning to your home after a long period of time away can be disorienting and challenging without the right support.
Our Carers can provide key support plans perfectly designed and scheduled around you and your needs, which are ultimately to be comfortable and re-acquainted in your own home during your period of convalescence and recovery.
Our Reablement Care service includes:
Our Carers are able to assist you with a range of domestic chores including cooking, laundry, ironing, vacuuming, changing the bed linen etc. They can also assist you with post, managing your administration if need be, shopping etc.
Our Carer workers can help prepare nutritious meals. Whether hot or cold meals, they can help buy, prepare and cook healthy meals. Trained in Food Hygiene, Fluids & Nutrition - our Carers can also assist to monitor what you eat and drink.
“Friendly, assuring and very helpful…”
Assisting with personal care needs can be a sensitive area of work. Our Carers are trained and supervised to ensure they provide personal care in a patient, professional, considered and respectful manner. This is to ensure that the dignity of our clients is maintained through the manner of the Carers approach. Personal care can involve assistance with showering, washing, dressing, toileting, shaving, skin, teeth, eyes, feet care as well as other necessary activities.
Detailed medication information makes up a key part of the support planning process. Our Carers can assist you to take medication at the right times. This information will also be recorded for other healthcare professionals to access. Carers can also collect prescriptions from the pharmacy and liaise with health professionals on your behalf if required.
