Which kind of care is best for you?
Care packages need to fit the individual, as we’re all unique and require different levels of care and support. There are lots of options available to you and your loved ones when you work with Country Cousins. We can adapt to short-term needs, provide urgent care or develop something long-term that adapts as your circumstances change. Our aim is to give you the opportunity to choose the living situation you want based on your aspirations rather than on limited care choices.
We want you to be able to stay in your residence as long as possible. The cost of home care may be more affordable than you think when compared to the expense of a residential care home. When you choose our services, you only need to pay for the help you actually need.
Long-term or short-term
You may need care that only covers short periods, such as during convalescence. Once you are back on your feet after surgery or illness, you might not require care anymore. Having some periods of home care can help you to build trust in a service like Country Cousins so you are more likely to request the help you need in the future.
Respite care is also available to give families a break from undertaking care of elderly relatives or disabled adults. They can take some time away to rest and restore knowing that their loved ones are in safe hands.
Once long-term care becomes necessary, it may only be for specific tasks such as going out, shopping, getting dressed or taking medications. We can ensure that help is available for these things so that you can live an otherwise independent life.
Care for couples
Home care is the perfect option for couples who need extra support. Moving into a care home may not be possible or desirable for both partners. Maintaining relationships and the degree of privacy you get at home is essential for dignified living in later life.
Exploring your options
These are just some of the options that are available to you. They can be combined and adjusted to provide you with reliable support. To begin designing the life you want with the care you need, contact us at Country Cousins. Our experienced and friendly team are standing by to help.
