What Type Of Services Can We Provide
Home Care Service
People need a home care service for many reasons. Some examples of when our services might be required include following an illness, hospitalisation, decreased mobility as we get older, having a disability, family carers needing a break. This home care service can be required daily, weekly or sporadically. It can be for short or long periods. It can be once a day or more often. Everybody’s needs are different. Manilla Healthcare is happy to arrange for a senior member of our team to meet with you and discuss your requirements.
We provide support for those who are isolated and lonely, but still healthy and happy to remain in their own home. Our aim is to reduce or prevent loneliness in an elderly person who might otherwise become isolated. This is primarily emotional support and socialization.
Meals and Feeding
We understand that food is very important to our wellbeing and people can become distress if this aspect of their life is not taken care of. If you struggle to prepare meals or go to the shop to buy food, our team are here to help you prepare your meals based on your diet requirement. We also work hand in hand with dietician to seek advice when necessary on how to ensure that people are eating a balance heathy meal in order to maintain their well-being. If you require any assistance with feeding, the carers will be available to assist you with feeding.
Our carers are trained on how to manage catheter care. We work hand in hand with District nurses to discuss any concern and to seek advice when necessary to provide the care that you require with your catheter.
24 hours Home Care
We know that due to people’s needs, some people may require round the clock care in order to be able to manage their care at home in a safe environment. We have dedicated and committed team to ensure that you receive whatever support that you require during the day and at night.
Palliative care at home means that you or your family member can remain in a place that you feel comfortable and surrounded by memories, with the support of a compassionate carer. Our care is not just about providing assistance, it is also about offering emotional support and companionship during a difficult time. We provide active, compassionate care with advice and support to alleviate the anxiety, fear and loneliness that many experience during this time.
Toileting / Continence Care
We understand that people’s needs are different and will sometimes require assistance to manage with some basic things that can affect their wellbeing if not manage correctly. Our carers are trained and experience in assisting our clients with toileting at their preferred time and also to provide continence care when required.
Prior to us commencing your care, we will carry out a medication risk assessment to determine the level of assistance that you require from our carers to manage your medication. Where it has been established that you require assistance, the carers will assist you to administer your tablets as prescribed by your GP and this will be documented in your care plan.
