Hourly Care provides adaptive home care to allow patients to live in the comfort of their own homes. It also allows patients to develop a bond with their carer.
Visiting carers can stop by for specialist appointments, shopping or to help with daily tasks. They can even offer overnight care to provide a complete solution for your needs.
Hourly Care offers a lot of flexibility. It’s ideal for people who need short-term care to facilitate recovery from an illness or injury, and it’s also perfect for those who don’t require live-in care.
Families who had access to flexible care in the trials – either through FDC or through other services that offered this option – valued being able to book and change their hourly care at short notice. This was especially valuable when they needed to get their children to school or to other appointments on time.
Another benefit of hourly care is that you can still go out and meet friends and family without worrying about whether your Carer will be available to help. You can even request respite Care from your regular Carer if you want to take a break for a couple of hours. Because Curam’s carers work in a small team, you can easily find a replacement for any day you’re going out.
Hourly Care is a convenient and flexible option for those who need extra support. It allows your loved one to maintain their quality of life in familiar surroundings. It also means that they can see their friends, continue to socialise and engage with local community activities.
With hourly care (also known as domiciliary care), a Carer will visit you at home for a few hours and help with everyday tasks such as cooking, cleaning and personal care. This can include taking you to the shops and ensuring that your prescriptions are ordered and delivered.
Hourly care can be provided by independent/private carers or through a Care Agency. The latter tends to be more affordable and provides a layer of security as the agency will ensure that the Carers they assign are trained and experienced. However, this can limit the opportunity to build a relationship with the Carer and may result in you seeing different Carers on a regular basis.
The cost of care at home is very different depending on where you live and the availability of caretakers. In areas where caretakers are scarce and costs of living are high, hourly care can be very expensive.
In these situations, it is important to find a provider that offers the services you need at an affordable price. Many providers offer a range of care packages to suit your budget and needs. This allows you to keep your independence at home and still have access to the help you need.
Hourly Care, also known as domiciliary care is a visiting service where a Carer visits you at your home to help with tasks that you may have trouble doing on your own. Carers often visit multiple clients in a day and must stick to their schedule so they will not be able to stay with you as long as you would like. Additional community health and social care support can be arranged to supplement hourly care.
Hourly Care offers a highly professional service with consistent, high quality care that is warm and empathetic. Regular visits from a caring professional can bring structure to a person’s day, something that many isolated individuals at home are lacking.
This type of care is perfect for people who need help with everyday tasks or rehabilitation services. It can also be arranged to support a loved one through a health crisis or end of life care.
Carers are available for a number of hours and can provide a range of services, including meals and bathing. The frequency of visits depends on individual needs. Typically, hourly care is offered by a private carer but care agencies can also be used. Independent/private carers tend to be more flexible with times of their visits and can build a strong relationship with the client. However, they can be more expensive than a care agency but can offer an extra layer of security.
