Part of our ethos at Oran Care is building robust and consistent care packages that are all about the person and relationships rather than about ‘task’. This is why we only do visits for over one hour at a time, and for 10 hours a week or more.
Personal Care is care of a personal nature which enables people to live independently at home. This could be help starting the day properly, assisting with dietary goals and support maintaining independence including personal hygiene tasks such as toileting and bathing. Our professional carers receive extensive training in the use of mobility aids such as hoists and wheelchairs as well as in assisting with some aspects of medication and more in order to help you achieve what is important to you. All our care is carried out with the committiment of maintaining privacy, dignity and respect at all times.
Our flexible and tailored approach provides our clients Fife and Midlothian with high-quality daytime home care services focused on meeting your specific needs. An example of a day of care is outlined below.
Typically, a morning visit includes assistance to get up, bath or shower and dress, make or change the bed, prepare lunch together if possible and/or undertake light domestic tasks. Go out, for example, for hospital appointments, shopping or social outings.
A lunch visit may consist of helping with a mid day meal, toileting needs and medication. It can also provide a chance to get out and about with one of our supportive carers. Take a drive, go out for coffee, or just have a cup of tea and chat at home. You might want support to do a little gardening, or cooking, listen to music or do something more creative.
An evening visit might include preparing an evening meal, providing evening companionship, assistance with bathing, medication, tucking in and finally securing the property before we leave.
To ensure our clients get the level of home care services we believe they require, we make each visit a minimum of one hour – although we can obviously provide extra hours as appropriate.
