What are the different types of homecare?

What is homecare? 

Homecare is defined as a type of care where individuals remain in their own homes. There are many different types of homecare that nurses and carers can provide according to your individual needs. The registered nurses and carers then travel to the patient’s homes to provide the necessary care needed. Homecare is ideal for people who want to stay living in their homes but would like some help with day-to-day living. Any person can require this type of care from young children to an older person, disabled or managing an illness.

Different types of homecare

Palliative care 

We are experts at providing private palliative homecare for individuals with terminal illnesses whilst they remain in their own homes. We work to support the patient and their family with private end-of-life care to reduce pain, improve comfort and quality of life. Furthermore, we have an understanding that at such a stressful and sensitive time, specialist nursing care and trustworthy support can make a huge difference to how you cope with such a diagnosis.

Live-in care 

Our live-in registered nurses and carers can offer support and companionship throughout the day, and even during the night should you need 24-hour live-in homecare. The services we can provide include everything from doing the housekeeping and shopping to helping with personal care, medication administration and clinical expertise. Furthermore, our registered nurses will be there to help and support.

Domiciliary care 

We provide companion homecare as well as personal care under our domiciliary care services. Our experienced nursing managers have created companion care packages to suit clients who do not require a lot of help but those who would like companionship and support during their daily activities. Moreover, companion care has an emotional and cognitive benefit for elderly individuals due to the engaging conversations and reassurance when unfortunate life events occur. 

Our personal care services provide the highest quality care and support in the home. The aim is to support you with maintaining your independence and dignity at home, ensuring you always feel comfortable and safe. Maintaining your self-esteem is the most important thing to us when providing our personal care services.

 Mental Health Care 

 At Cavendish Homecare, we understand the bravery it takes to seek help for a mental health issue. Our team of mental health nurses are specialists in creating highly personalised mental healthcare plans. 

Paediatric Care

When providing paediatric care at home, our main mission is to deliver high-quality care for your child. We are aware that children thrive in their home environment, which is why we are here to help. We are proud of our unwavering commitment to providing quality paediatric care. Our team of registered nurses and carers are responsive to your child’s needs and we can guarantee they will always be friendly, compassionate and professional.

Respite Care 

We provide respite homecare to allow you a temporary break from the care responsibilities you may have. This allows you time for yourself and time to spend with friends and family whilst ensuring peace of mind knowing your loved one is being well cared for. 

Post-Operative Care 

We provide post-operative care at home which utilises the clinical skills and expertise of our experienced registered nurses and carers. We are aware of the specialist care needs for all operations. Furthermore, our specialist teams are aware of complications that can occur post-op, such as blood clots caused by inactivity and our qualified nurses ensure a safe healthy recovery.
