There are so many ways that our carers can make your life easier and enjoyable with their assistance.
We’ll look after anything of a personal nature that you need extra support with, whether that’s bathing and dressing, or reading out your post or preparing meals.
If you're wondering whether the time is right for you or a loved one to organise personal care at home, then here are just some of the benefits of myCaringPOD:
Personal Care is the umbrella term used to describe anything done for you by a carer that’s of a personal nature. Many people incorrectly believe that personal care just involves washing, toileting and dressing, but that’s only a part of the care support on offer.
In reality, Personal Care involves a host of tasks relating to hygiene, appearance, the household and nutrition.
Here’s a list of some of the duties which form part of Personal Care:
Putting on makeup
Filling in forms
Making a meal
Moving around the house safely
Travel to appointments
Picking up prescriptions
Attending groups or social events
Accessing the local community
Experienced professional carers ensure these tasks are undertaken with each person’s preferences taken into consideration.
In doing so, the care allows people to feel comfortable, maintain their dignity, and remain in control of their personal care.
What are the benefits of personal care?
Having the right level of care and support helps maintain a person’s self-esteem and wellbeing.
It empowers people to continue living in the home they love for as long as possible, just with extra help as and when they need it.
Poor hygiene can lead to problems later, so a proactive approach helps maintain health and mental wellbeing.
Carers can be there at specific times to assist people with taking medication too.
Our carers come to people’s homes, work with the products they prefer, do things their way and preserve their dignity.
For us, it’s all about the person as an individual – and that’s how personal care should be.
Regular interaction with kind, considerate carers can help tackle feelings of isolation and loneliness. Companionship is one of the most valuable things we can offer.
MyCaringPOD ensures that families living away can book and track the care given, giving them peace of mind that their loved one is being well looked after.
For people arranging their own care, our service means you can employ carers to work around your schedule and meet your specific needs.
We hope to give people the opportunity to remain independent and live well in their own homes.
How will I know when the time is right to bring in a personal care professional?
It can be difficult to ask for help with personal care or approach a loved one who may require support.
However, the best thing about personal care is it empowers people to continue living the life they choose.
Personal Care for you
Perhaps you find it challenging to complete personal care tasks that were once a simple part of your routine.
Maybe you can just about manage alone, but it takes a considerable amount of your time and energy.
You may struggle with just a couple of important things but don’t require a carer to come in every day.
Whatever your requirements, you can find an experienced carer and book them for the time you require from our user-friendly platform.
Personal Care for a loved one
You may notice that your loved one finds it challenging to do the personal tasks they used to find straightforward.
This might be evident when you see them or go into their home, or they might tell you that things are proving to be too much for them.
They may find it difficult to get out of the house to attend hairdresser or medical appointments or may have stopped attending to regular hygiene tasks.
When you chat to them, they may talk about it taking a lot of time or energy to complete basic tasks.
You can arrange the appropriate level of care from an expert team who can help you assess what care plan needs to be put in place.
Be reassured that the flexibility of our offer means that your loved one will get exactly what they need.
