Most of the care required by residents is assistance with all the activities of daily living including mobility from one place to another, bathing/showering, dressing, personal hygiene, using the toilet and assistance with meals. Unfortunately health deteriorates with age. As well as the common conditions and complaints like arthritis, loss of hearing and diminished eyesight, people in their seventies and above are susceptible to a whole range of physical and mental illnesses. These include, most commonly, diabetes, coronary heart disease, osteoporosis, incontinence and dementia.
Our Bluebird Care, our domiciliary care providers are trained to assist with these as well as a whole range of other care needs resulting from disabilities, conditions and illness including neurological problems such as Multiple Sclerosis, Motor Neurone Disease and Parkinson’s disease. The range of care encompasses people needing care and support, some of who will have high dependency needs including very frail elderly, rehabilitation and post operatives; as well as end of life care at home, which the majority of us are now opting for.
