Typically people may be struggling to get out to the shops or keeping the house or garden tidy. They may have a limiting illness or dementia issues. In this case we are on-hand to help people to continue to live the life they enjoy as independently and worry-free as possible.
We pride ourselves on taking a different approach to many traditional care services. The key ways in which Altrust are set apart are:
- we supply the same staff member each visit
- we stay for the time we agree to, never arriving late or leaving early
- we review our services with the service user and family to allow them to keep in control of their lives
Often, health issues can lead to individuals feeling that they cannot complete all their usual household tasks. Families become concerned about this and want to help, but work commitments, family responsibilities and living outside the area often mean that it becomes impossible for the individual to stay in their home. There are then the costs associated with residential homes that can be £500 plus per week.
This is the kind of problem to which Altrust are expects in offering a solution.
Altrust Home Help is a viable alternative as we understand the importance of living in your own home, and can assist you with keeping everything as you like it. We don’t take over and we ensure the client still does what they can to maintain their independence and are still in charge. We just help out where they are struggling. Of course this increases as their needs increase but we will be there for them throughout.
