As the population increases rapidly in the UK many elderly people need that additional support to be able to stay at home. The often-heard wish "I want to stay in my own home!" is something that people feel very strongly about. Home is where they have had lots of memories and is a key part of their identity. Having familiar surroundings, your own possessions and space, and a sense of belonging and friends locally is so important. It can also be about maintaining independence and privacy and not losing control over your life. The good news is that with the right help and support you may be able to do that.
Planning is often very difficult because you never know when your needs may change. The first step is to think about the kind of help you need now and possibly in the near future. If you live alone using the Help at Home service can make all the difference.
If you’re generally finding that you’ve got too much to cope with, think about what would help to ease your workload and help you enjoy life. This support can come in the form of many ways, including:
- Shopping with you or for you
- Attending a medical appointment
- Visiting friends and family without the ability of being able to travel alone
- Household chores such as cleaning, ironing, washing, changing bed linen, cleaninf the oven, etc.
- Help preparing and planning your meals
- Attending social outings so that you can do what you want to do
- Pet care and dog walking
- Support with managing bills and scheduling appointments
- Planning days out
