Sitting service

Befriending

Bespoke Care & SS will aim to assist in referring older people to voluntary or free services for companionship. However, we realise that some people prefer to make their own structured arrangements as they may not have any close relatives or may not have friends or relatives living close by. It may be that you just require some company occasionally, somebody to call in, check you are OK, perhaps read mail or the paper with you, play cards or make a cup of tea and have a chat. This is a very reassuring service for both you and your relatives. You can both relax in the knowledge that somebody is calling in to check all is well and also alleviate any loneliness that you may experience from time to time.

Services for carers

Sitting

We can come into your home and step into your shoes to give you a break from the day to day stresses of caring. You can obtain funded breaks for around 4 hours each week. However, if you have control of your own budget we can tailor a package to suit you from as little as 1 hour up to 24 hour care.

Time for You

Taking a regular break can mean the difference between you being able to continue caring or no longer being able to manage. A regular break can take the pressure off, you can plan and go out to a regular activity or just to have that time to yourself or re-connect with family or friends with the peace of mind that your loved one is being cared for. It could assist you to remain or get back into employment.

What we do

We will carry out the care & personalised support tasks for the person that you care for, that you would normally do, (if appropriate after risk assessment). You can then go out with peace of mind knowing that the person you care for is being well looked after. The support plan may include any of the following;

  • Meal Preparation
  • Support with eating and drinking
  • Support with medication (Individual Medication Plan)
  • Light domestic duties
  • Support for activities outside the home

We recognise the diversity and levels of complexity with all types of disability. Each support plan will reflect individual needs. If personal care or other household support is required this can be accommodated using a suitably skilled care or domestic support worker.
