Individual care in your own home

There are many reasons why people need a care service in their home. It can be that the person is elderly and frail and unable to do some daily tasks without support, it may be required as a result of an illness, disability or hospitalisation. Each person's needs are individual and Rutledge Domiciliary Care Services recognises the importance of individual assessments.

RESPITE CARE AT HOME

Respite care is short-term care used as a temporary alternative to a person's usual care arrangements. People who care for someone with dementia or other degenerative illness often carry on without realising how tired or tense they have become. A break or holiday can help them relax and recharge their batteries. It is important that carers have regular breaks and make time for their own needs. Respite care may also be needed in other situations, for example, the carer might have a family function to attend or might feel unwell themselves. It is natural to prefer to stay in familiar surroundings, especially for someone living with dementia. Respite at home can help alleviate family carer's feelings of guilt and prevent unnecessary disruption to the person in need of care.

REABLEMENT

Reablement services are very focused on improving peoples health, well-being, confidence and independence - the aim is to help people regain ability to live as independently as possible in their own home. Reablement is often introduced after a person has suffered an acute illness or has been hospitalised, which can result in a loss of confidence coupled with an inability to do things in the way they always did them. This service normally lasts up to six weeks with a weekly monitoring of the persons progress.

How We Work

We pride ourselves on delivering value for money and transparency across all our domiciliary care services, and we regularly benchmark our services with those of our competitors. During our initial home consultation we’ll gain a better idea of the services you need and be able to give you a more precise idea of requirements and costs.

Our initial home consultation is carried out by one of our service managers, who is a highly experienced care industry professional. They’re not sales people, so you can rest assured that they won’t do any hard sell and there is never any obligation on you to buy our services. Our people are on your side and committed to helping you to organise the support you need.

We make it easy for you to scale up or down your care, add on extra services for however long you need them – and even to end your care contract with us at any time if it no longer meets your needs. Everything we do is clear and professional, always.
