Home is a place where people feel safe and secure. Home is familiar. The home is a refuge where a person’s memories spill out from their mind and cover the walls with pictures, cover the shelves with books and ornaments and cover the dining table with those marks and patterns that each tell a story of their own.
Home is that favourite chair that creaks a bit with one button missing from the back. Home is the front door that’s a bit stiff and you have to gently pull the handle backwards to make it open.
At Acacia homecare, we believe that your home can be an important part of the care process. While it may be true that some situations require a person to spend time in long term supervised care, the majority of people requiring assistance and care would benefit far more from being enabled to continue life in their own home.
Enabling the individual to keep full control of their day-to-day living is not simply a service we offer or something we look to encourage – it is a foundation that underpins everything we do.
Our Personal care service is designed to support the individual with their day-to-day living, as well as providing the individual with the encouragement allowing them full control to remain living independently.
Our personal care service can support the individual with dressing, administering medication, bathing and continence care, at a time to suit your convenience. Maintaining the individual’s dignity is of paramount importance to us, which is why our support workers will ensure the individual feel comfortable at all times.
24 hours care
Our 24 hour care service supports individuals who require a significant level of support throughout the day and night. This allows the individual’s family and friend’s peace of mind, knowing that their loved ones are benefiting from the expert care of highly skilled healthcare professionals, in the place where the individual is most comfortable.
Unlike a care home where many individuals have to be considered, 24 hour care is a personal one-to-one service that is tailored to the needs of each individual. A flexible care service is provided, accommodating your regular routine and specific needs, as well as adapting to the individual’s changing circumstances.
We can arrange for a Support worker to look after the individual’s care needs during the day, and another Support worker to be with the individual throughout the night.
We believe that enabling people to receive care in their own home is not just something that is preferred by clients, but that it forms a fundamental component of the care itself. But the positive aspects of care within the home environment can be quickly negated if those providing the care do not fit in with the home environment.
Acacia Homecare provide support workers who are not just professionally trained to provide care, but who are also culturally aware to ensure that they recognise, respect and act in accordance with the client’s beliefs and cultural background.
Acacia provide care within your own home and ensure that your own home stays as your own.
