At Brooklee Care, we pride ourselves on delivering the highest quality care in your home. We understand that maintaining your independence is of the utmost importance and as such we will work in partnership with you to establish exactly what support we can provide. Prior to commencing a care package, we will meet with you to learn about your needs and preferences, to develop a tailored care package.
Home care we are able to provide includes:
Sometimes those who act as a carer, require support themselves. We are able to develop short term care packages that ensure you can continue to receive care in your own home, at a time when your usual care giver is unable to care for you, for example if they are unwell, currently in hospital, or if they simply require a break.
If you are currently an inpatient in hospital or spending some time in a residential care home, but wish to return home, our friendly team of carers are here to support you through this transition. We will establish the level of independence you previously enjoyed and work with you to achieve this again. Regular reviews of your care package will be undertaken as you regain your independence, to ensure that your needs are at the forefront of everyone’s minds.
Living with dementia can be a worrying experience for both you and your family. That’s why our carers all receive training on aspects of care that are relevant to you, such as use of the SPECAL method developed to support people living with dementia. Our training includes the importance of good nutrition and hydration, reminders for taking medication and the development of a routine to ensure that you feel at ease in your own home. With our understanding of the issues that are important to you, we can make it possible for you feel safe and supported at home.
Caring for someone with a complex condition demands an understanding of specific issues. Issues include, but are not limited to; the need for timely administration of medications in those with Parkinson’s Disease, or the need to work closely with other healthcare professionals such as physiotherapists, in those with Motor Neurone Disease. That’s why we are dedicated to providing our staff with training in more complex areas of care to ensure that even those with the most complex of needs, can feel empowered to remain living at home, without any compromise on the level of care that they receive.
