Right at home – caring with a difference

with Lesley Williams

Many of us worry about our elderly parents and how they cope with looking after themselves as they grow older. From personal experience, I know how important it is to provide them ways in which they can maintain their independence, stay in their own home, but remain safe and well cared for.

Very often, accepting that they need help with their day to day care is a difficult subject to broach, so I was very interested to chat with James Foley of Right at Home on how they work with clients to introduce care-givers before they are actually needed. By meeting a carer and getting to know them, the transition to accepting assistance with their personal care is much easier. Shopping trips and going out for lunch are just a couple of ways in which an introduction can be made and a relationship built.

Another difference with Right at Home from other care providers is that they prefer that their visits are for a minimum of one hour, so that their client doesn’t feel rushed, and that there is time to sit and chat, and to assess the wellbeing of the client. Of course the trips and excursions don’t have to stop – the package of care is tailored to each individual’s requirements.

For your peace of mind, Right at Home use the latest technology to record details of every visit – so you know immediately if everything is ok, or more importantly if there is any problem that you need to address.

James and his team are happy to have an informal chat to discuss your or your family member’s needs now, or for the future.
