I thought it worth posting this information because I recently had the good fortune to work with a home care provider. Good for 2 reasons, 1st it got me a new customer, and secondly it enabled me to get some much needed help for my elderly parents.
My parents are fast approaching 90 years of age, and they are starting to need help with their daily activities such as washing, dressing, preparing food etc. And although my sister lives close by, and I am not too far away, it is difficult to be on call at all times due to work and family pressures.
That is where home care comes in, and for us was a life saver. They can give all of the help that we would like to do if it were possible, and my thanks go out the the care company. You can view their website here for more information www.leymarhealthcare.co.uk.
But from the meetings that we had with them, it was also apparent that they were lacking in quite a few areas of safety and hygiene related equipment and supplies, so we were able to help them with that too. A real win win.
I thought it would be nice to post some information about what this type of business can do for anyone else in a similar situation to mine, so here it is, and I hope that somebody finds it useful…
Read more to find out why Community Healthcare is Important to All of Us
A community’s health largely depends on not only learning but also responding to challenges that tend to change over time. Community healthcare generally involves continually developing and improving social and physical environments and also expanding the community resources that enable individuals to mutually support each other when it comes to performing entire functions of life.
Community healthcare providers place your health high on their agenda and we strive to offer access to such things as peace, social support, adequate resources, advice, and comfort, especially to those battling or recovering from sickness.
Hospital to Home Care
Once in a while, we might get sick and this might require us to visit a hospital for treatment. Sometimes it may involve a simple treatment to get us feeling fine while other times an operation will be required. Often, when an operation is involved or any other treatment of a similar nature, it can bring forth the option of nursing care or residential home. This can be so daunting, especially the thought of never going back to your lovely home.
We clearly have your interest at heart and that’s why our hospital to home care services are designed to help you not to go through such. Our caregivers can help you to recuperate by ensuring that you settle back in your usual surroundings. Even then, you will still have access to social workers, nurses, and hospital doctors who offer you additional support.
Better still, we’ll seek the help of the hospital’s discharge team in ensuring that prior to your return at home, all the necessary resources have been put in place. A complete risk assessment will be carried out so as to get rid of any health and safety hazards. When you finally return home, you will have access to all that is needed to speed up your healing.
Our team of staff will also be ready to offer any other additional care the patient will need. Whether it’s a healthcare assistant or support worker, we have them all. You can still have one of our staff accompany you during your transfer from the hospital to your home just to ensure that you feel comfortable throughout the journey.
Generally, you can expect to have our support regardless of your condition. This includes for:
- Post-operative patients who wish to carry on with recovery back in their homes.
- In-patients who prefer to go back home soon after discharge.
- Persons currently at home after spending some time in hospital
Our mission will always be to:
- Offer our patients the highest quality of comprehensive health care, and also innovative health care services.
- Provide compassionate, personally convenient, cost-effective and supportive health care
- Recruit the most qualified staff capable of offering encouragement and optimum support to the patient so as to ensure the patient’s success in having a happier and healthier life.
- Continually enhance the quality and efficiency of all our operations and services so as to ensure all the patients we attend to only have access to the best community healthcare
As a community healthcare provider, we believe that everyone in need of healthcare deserves support, advice and above all, comfort. We are so happy to offer you that so as your stay at home while recovering will be among the best moments of your life.
I really hope that you found that informative, and it may help somebody to get the help they need at the time of life when they are most vulnerable.
