I Don’t Think I’d Like Sharing My Life With A Stranger

I Don’t Think I’d Like Sharing My Life With A Stranger

Are you worried about sharing your life with a carer? Abicare will work with you to find your perfect match.

We know it can be daunting opening up your home to a stranger, especially if it’s the first time living with someone else in a while.

Our carers are there to provide much more than home nursing services. Whilst they are on hand to help with practical things at home and physical care, they are also there to offer reassurance and companionship. Our carers can help with all aspects of daily life, including the following:

  • Household chores (such as laundry, simple cleaning, taking your pet for a walk)
  • Medical assistance, including help with administering medication
  • Personal care (such as going to the toilet and having a shower)
  • Help with preparing your favourite meals
  • Companionship and reassurance during the day and night

Someone for everyone

Whether you’re a film fanatic or a keen gardener, at Abicare, we have several carers who will encourage you to carry on doing what you love for as long as possible. When creating your bespoke care plan, we will strive to match you with a carer with similar interests. We also have many carers who speak different languages, so if you require someone who speaks another language, get in touch today, and we will endeavour to find you your perfect match.

Companionship and reassurance

Sometimes we know the smallest things make the biggest difference, and having a friendly face around the house to keep you company can be just as important as having someone to help with home nursing services. We find this especially true for clients with specialist conditions such as dementia or Alzheimer’s.

What happens if I don’t get along with my carer?

At Abicare, we know that things don’t always work out, and if you don’t get along with your carer, we will find you someone else until we get it just right. Once your carer is in post, we ask you to allow 48 hours before we check in on how things are going so that you can get to know each other first.
