Respite Care

“I feel much better knowing Cavendish Homecare are around to help.”

When 83-year-old Mrs. C, a previous Cavendish Homecare patient, accidentally fell, she called us immediately. Within the hour, one of our Registered Nurses had arrived and arranged for her to go to hospital, where they found she had a hairline pelvic fracture.

Nervous and with no family nearby, our Registered Nurse stayed with her until she was admitted. We then arranged for a Carer to visit daily to ensure she was comfortable.

After being declared fit, we accelerated her discharge by carrying out a Home Risk Assessment, and creating a Care Plan which included arranging equipment from our suppliers while her NHS order was approved. We’ve continued to work with her Physiotherapist, GP and other experts as her care has continued.

After stating she wanted to remain at home as her health improved, we liaised with those responsible for Mrs. C’s finances and created a Resident and Relief Care Package that worked within her budget and gave her the independence she desired.
