It is sometimes the small things that can make a huge difference to adults being cared for and their caregivers. Support with everyday tasks or simply having someone to talk to can be all that’s needed to help those adults with care needs who want to remain living at home.
VISIT Home Support, based in Malton, was set up by Max and Francesca to provide practical help for adults after experiencing first-hand the challenges of caring for their grandfather for several years. Max, who has worked in the health and social care industry for over 16 years, said: “We understand the stress and anxiety experienced by both caregivers and adults being cared for. We know that one size approach does not fit all and that early intervention is absolutely key to cutting care costs and enabling adults to remain living independently and longer at home. We have to take a more holistic approach to care so the support is sustainable. We can help you identify problems before they become serious, and work with you to come up with a plan of action to meet your requirements; we develop strategies with you to prevent and reduce your long-term care costs and needs.” Francesca also has 10 years of expertise as a support worker and domiciliary carer and is keen to help others live their lives to the fullest.
VISIT is more than just a home support service, they look at solution-focused ways of keeping you safe at home and thereby reducing the risk of falls and hospital admissions. They can support you with assistive technology, such as fall detectors, crash mats, sensor monitors and small equipment aids to remain independent and safe at home.
You may already have a ‘care package’ but just require respite as a carer or be someone who still requires extra help around the home or to get out and about.
If you feel overwhelmed and in need of practical assistance, or isolated and lonely, a call to VISIT can help you get back on track. The team can provide support with home respite, hospital-to-home help, dementia support, community access, technology, housekeeping, medication reminders and more.
Are you caring for someone with dementia and need a break? VISIT provide a sitting service to give respite for caregivers.
