At Country Cousins, we are home care experts, passionate about our work and making our clients live easier and enjoyable. Home care allows you to go on about your day-to-day life, without worrying about anything. You can sit back and relax, safe in the knowledge that all the important things are happening around you.
There is a large elderly population in the UK and live-in care or home care is one of the most popular alternatives to a care home. But what is it like with home care from Country Cousins carers?
In this guide we’ll take you through everything you can expect from home care and how it can benefit you.
What help can you get with a home carer?
With home care, you can get as much, or as little help around the house and with errands as you like. Sometimes there are certain tasks around the house that you like doing, so your home carer will happily leave these to you.
Help around the house is one of the main parts of a carers job. They will keep your house clean for you so you don’t need to worry. You’ll be living in a clean home without needing to worry. They will also cook you homemade meals which will give you all the nutrients you need. Of course, if you enjoy cooking they will happily leave this to you so they can support you whilst you prepare a meal. Carers are more than comfortable in helping and supporting where needed.
Your carer can also run errands for you. For example, if you need medication collecting for you then they will happily head out to the pharmacy and pick up any medication. They will also support you, so that you take everything on time and don’t mix medication up.
Our Cousins are not just your carer, they’re also your friend. So, if you want a cup of coffee or tea, and a chat, then that’s what they’re there for. To not just be a carer but a companion. If you need a bit of time to yourself, they will ensure you keep your privacy and will offer support where necessary. They can also work around your family and work with them when they come round to ensure that you’re comfy and well supported.
What does the average day live-in home care look like?
How each day looks will vary from client to client, depending on their needs and requirements. No two days will be the same and you will have plenty of different things that are different each day. No two days will be the same or will you be able to say I have had an average day with home care from Country Cousins. As we say, each person is different and brings their own personality which adds something different. This will likely vary between each client, but this gives you an indication of the difference you will experience each day.

My experience of working with Country Cousins so far has been so positive. My concerns about mum, particularly during this Crisis, have been reduced massively since I moved to Country Cousins. Thank you again
