Home Instead Southampton Explains How Home Care Services Can Be a Safe and Viable Alternative to Residential Care Homes

Home Instead Southampton, which is based in Fareham, UK, wants to emphasise that home care can be a safe alternative to residential care homes. There are also certain advantages of choosing home care instead of sending elderly loved ones to residential care homes since they remain in a place they are already familiar with and they are surrounded by items, belongings, and memories they have accumulated throughout the years. They also want to point out that what makes them different from other home care providers in the area is that they offer home care visits for a minimum of one hour per visit.

A key benefit of home care for the elderly is that it is more affordable while allowing loved ones to remain at home for longer. Home Instead Southampton has the reputation of being a premier provider of home care in Southampton, Whiteley, Park Gate, Bursledon and nearby areas. They have a team of highly-trained home care professionals who work closely with the elderly, ensuring the proper home care plan is crafted to provide the best possible care depending on the specific needs and requirements of the elderly.

It just takes a few steps to find the home care solution for an elderly loved one. The first step is to find one’s local Home Instead team. They have 250 offices and it is possible search for the location that is most suitable by utilising their postcode tool in the navigation bar. The second step is the initial call to Home Instead where a potential client can discover what they can do to help the elderly continue to be happy and comfortable at home. Any member of their experienced team can discuss the services they can provide that will deliver the support and care desired for the loved one. They will get details regarding the elderly loved one and schedule a good time for them to visit and provide a full care consultation with the client, relatives, including friends and advocates of the elderly.

In the third step, they will perform the scheduled home visit for the care consultation, which is a thorough evaluation of the elderly’s care and support needs. Their Care Manager will usually be the one to visit the elderly to complete the consultation with the elderly, family, and friends. The information gathered in this visit will allow them to choose the specific care professionals who can provide the support that will closely match the specific hobbies, interests, and personality of the elderly who requires home care.

In the fourth step, the care professionals who will be providing the care service are introduced to make sure they are compatible and are the appropriate fit. The introduction will be provided by a senior member of the Home Instead Southampton team and allow the elderly and family to get to know the assigned care professional.

In the fifth and last step, the home care service begins with the elderly loved one and their care professional getting to know each other better. Furthermore, since situations can change quickly frequently, they will perform regular quality assurance visits and service reviews. This will ensure that they continue to provide the highest possible quality of care.

Founded in 1994 by Paul and Lori Hogan, Home Instead Southampton has the goal of giving the elderly a positive ageing experience in their own homes. The founders had personally experienced what dozens of other families had faced, while attempting to keep their 89-year-old grandmother healthy and safe at home. She actually became their first client and since then, the company has grown into one of the biggest global home care network, providing the needed support for more than 100,000 seniors. In 2021, they were acquired by Honor. In 2022, they were recognised as the top performer in the Best Home Care Group in the 2022 Home Care Awards.
