London, England -
Home Instead Wandsworth, Lambeth & Dulwich, a home care provider based in London, UK, is supporting local groups and charities to keep the community connected even during challenging times such as during the pandemic. COVID 19 has seriously impacted the ability of people to remain socially engaged and active, which is especially true for older people. The closure of day centres and community hubs has impacted the mental health and welfare of many elderly people which prompted local home care provider, Tony O’Flaherty, to reach out and support local community groups assisting the elderly.
Tony O'Flaherty, owner of Home Instead Wandsworth, Lambeth & Dulwich, and whose father is living with dementia, has first-hand experience of the difficulties and obstacles facing the elderly and has made it his mission to help in relieving some of these pressures by providing resources and support to local groups working with the elderly. Tony says, “Even if we only manage to help one person, it is worth all the effort.”
It is important to note that as people age, their quality of life may decline but it doesn’t have to be the case. That is why Home Instead Wandsworth, Lambeth & Dulwich has dedicated CAREGivers who are ready to support the elderly to ensure they keep their independence at home through their range of bespoke home care services. They can provide: companionship, home help and housekeeping, personal care, dementia care, and live-in care.
Through companionship care, they can serve the needs of the elderly who simply want some company and conversation because they are living alone or are unable to see their family and friends as frequently as they would like to. Or they may be mourning the loss of a loved one and finding it difficult to adjust.
Home help services for the elderly include assistance in dusting, hoovering, taking out the bins, feeding the cat, washing and ironing, and decluttering. It takes care of all aspects of housekeeping to help the elderly live well in their own home environment.
Meanwhile, the CAREGivers from Home Instead have undergone a unique training Dementia Training programme, accredited by City & Guilds, intended particularly for the home environment. The programme was developed by leading experts in dementia and ageing from various parts of the world, and it helps enable the CAREGivers to provide the best quality care possible utilising various strategies to support people living with dementia.
Clients who have taken the time to provide a review of the services they received have given highly positive feedback. For instance, Melanie of Wandsworth says, “Home Instead proved to be the reliable, friendly, efficient, caring help we needed. Always with a lightness of attitude the helper used humour and life experience to enrich my mother’s now limited life routines and lack of desire to move much. As mum recovered Home Instead helped her to be independent more of the time.”
