Homecare Company Launches New Live-in Care Option

Homecare Company Launches New Live-in Care Option

An affordable alternative to residential care has been launched today by respected West Bridgeford based homecare provider, PerCurra.

The new service, aimed mainly at elderly people requiring 24-hour low-level support, is charged at a cost-effective weekly rate rather than per hour. PerCurra founder and Managing Director Gill Heppell explained: “When an elderly relative, who has always been fiercely independent, can no longer manage to safely live alone it’s a very worrying time. Failing eyesight, dementia or frailty due to old age means they need help with everyday living and if you don’t live close by then it may seem that residential care is the only option. The same dilemma can arise when an elderly person is due to be discharged from hospital and there is no-one to care for them at home

“With this new Live-in Care option, PerCurra provides a trusted care professional who moves into the client’s home and lives as one of the family to provide a constant and reassuring level of support. Your relative is safe and happy in the familiar setting of their own home with someone to help them carry on doing things they love, at their own pace.”

All PerCurra’s care professionals are reference and security checked and their interests matched to the client. Live-in carers can take on the routine household duties such as cooking, shopping, cleaning and helping with pets and gardening or assist the client to continue doing them as much as they want to and are able to. They can also assist with bathing, dressing and medication. They can certainly provide peace of mind to their client and family members.

Gill added: “Currently, due to the Coronavirus pandemic, we are all having to live our lives within local and national guidelines. If your relative can be supported in their own home there is more flexibility. They, and you, have more control when it comes to visiting whereas in a care home setting there may be no visiting allowed. There are many reasons why a person would want to remain at home and if that’s what they want to do, we can work with you to make it happen.”
