We understand that for families with loved ones that require specific care needs, the festive season brings unique challenges in what can often be an emotional time of year. Although our home care and support services are available all year round, we can tailor each individual care plan to allow for changes in their usual routine during Christmas and New Year. Our experienced carers are here to support the service user and their families with whatever they need to make the most of this festive period.
Our dedicated and experienced carers are here to support everything from Christmas shopping to providing festive companionship.
This ensures that, no matter the care requirements of the individual, we can ensure that everyone can enjoy the holidays with their family in a setting that is both safe and comfortable.
What can Hales Care help out with this festive period:
According to Age UK, almost 1.5 million older people feel lonelier at Christmas than any other time of year. For many older adults, the holiday season can be isolating, and Christmas Day can feel just the same as any other.
Our all-round home care services ensure that your loved one has someone to pull the cracker with, to exchange a kind word, and share a hug with. Whether it’s a 30-minute domiciliary care call or 24/7 live-in care, you can rest assured that your loved one won’t be alone during the festive period, when you can’t be there.
Christmastime can be an emotional time, even more so when someone feels isolated and alone. Home care for Christmas and New Year, means that we can carry out home visits, manage care plans or simply sit down with the service user to ensure they feel like they have someone to talk to and rely on.
We also ensure that all of our service users are taking the right medication, managing bedtime routines, taking on enough fluids and staying warm – which is crucial during the colder winter months.
All of our highly-trained care workers are committed to improving the quality of life for our service users, ensuring they are making the most of the holiday season and enjoying the time spent with family and friends with complete peace of mind.
Whatever the needs of you or your loved one this Christmas, our care professionals are highly trained and equipped to offer assistance for diverse complex conditions and requirements.
At Hales Home Care, we utilise industry leading technology to provide the highest level of care and ensure the safety of all our service users. Our carers and staff have access to tools that enable us to provide continuous monitoring, rapid response, and personalised care, ensuring your loved one’s well-being throughout the holiday season.
You will have access to our care management system which logs care calls including; start and end times, updates to care plan documentation, record outcomes progress, log observations, risks, and changes in wellbeing.
It is also useful to escalate concerns to, and communicate with, senior staff in cases where additional time is needed to support a person so other visits can be rescheduled and reallocated.
