Barnet Home Carers is here to support your or a loved one’s needs to continue living at home, in a familiar environment.
As a provider of at-Home care services for over 30 years we are fully aware that every individual’s needs differ.
What makes us unique? We consider each and every one of you who have entrusted us in supporting you at home, as a member of our extended family.
As a member of the Barnet Home Carers family, we will always provide a tailored at-Home care package that has been devised by a member of our experienced management team and agreed with you and your loved ones.
Understanding your at-Homecare needs
Our initial meeting with you and one of our management team, will enable us to understand how you would like us to support your needs living within your own home.
This will help us agree on a person centred support plan that our at-Home carers will complete on visiting you at home.
We are aware that your needs will continually evolve as time catches up with us all. To this end, our at-Homecarers are asked to report any changes that they have observed.
If you feel that you would like to discuss with us any changes to your support plan, please contact us and we will help to fufil your wishes.
“My father is definitely, totally and utterly happy with the carers. They treat him very well, with respect and observing his dignity. He feels safe, they help him with medication. They always wear their PPE. If they are going to be slightly late, they ring and let us know. That’s fine with me.”
Our commitment in providing a quality at-Homecare service
Quality of life
During our initial assessment, we will determine what support you require from our compassionate and knowlegable at-Home carers. By creating a person-centred support plan we hope to let you maintain a quality of life that you have been accustomed to leading before the realisation that you now require some level of at-Home care support whilst ensuring your safety.
In ensuring all aspects of your support plan are carried out safely, we will carry out the necessary risk assessments with you to ensure that we are aware of any eventualities so that we can support you appropriately and in a dignified manner.
Hobbies and interests
It is very important to us that we help you maintain your standing within the local community, whether it be supporting you to go to the shops or going to meet some of your friends.
Whether you require minimal support or a great deal of support, we will make sure your independence is maximised whilst keep you safe.
Review of your needs
By ensuring that we provide you with a tailored care package, it is important to continually monitor your support needs. Your support plan will be reviewed on an annual basis if there are no changes reported.
Our experienced at-Home carers, are asked to report any changes that you or your loved one may be encountering which may require a greater level of support or you may wish to advise us of any changes. One of our management team, will arrange with you a convenient time to discuss what changes may be appropriate.
