Live in Care for Couples
Mr and Mrs A chose to stay together regardless of their care needs. Mr A was the main carer for his wife who was already living with early stages of dementia when he had an accident that left him bed bound and with an acute development of dementia himself. The couple were lucky to have a daughter who would not have her parents in a care home.
Mr A qualified for continuing care funding and the couple are funding the second carer themselves so that they have 24 hour care.
We have been caring for Mr and Mrs for nearly 2 years now and are surprised and very proud of the improvements we have seen with Mr A. With support and care plans drawn up by the NHS community team of physio and occupational therapists the carers have worked hard and Mr A is now walking with aid of zimmer frame
The couple now attends a day centre which they thoroughly enjoy. The day centre also provides a great opportunity for them to get out and meet other people their age. The centre has bath facilities that allow Mr A to take a bath which he would not be able to have at home. Mrs A enjoys having her hair done at the day centre.
At Ness M Care services we work very closely with day care centres local to all our service users so that we can enrich the lives of people we care for. Our dedicated carers also enjoy being out in day centres as they see the value they bring to the people they care for.
Ness M Care services values working with the community care team of physios/occupational therapists, GP, district nurses, community mental healthcare nurse who all support us to deliver the best care to all the people we serve.
