More and more people are choosing domiciliary care over other options like moving into an assisted living facility. A big move like that can be really disruptive to a person’s life. They may prefer to stay in their own home but with some extra help. A carer or assistant can visit periodically and provide this. It can ensure they get the support they need while also remaining independent.
The great thing about inviting a carer or assistant to help you at home is you can decide a schedule that works for you. You may prefer to get an early start each day and want a helper to come in the morning. Or, maybe you like to start later and spend more time in bed in the mornings. You have control over the scheduling and can choose a plan that works for you.
It is a good idea to take a look at the things you need help with. You can then get a better idea of when you want someone to come in to help. For example, you may want some assistance early in the day to help with dressing, preparing breakfast, or taking medication. Or, it could be that you need someone to come in later in the day to help with cleaning and preparing other meals. You have the freedom to decide.
Another advantage here is your scheduling can be very flexible. For example you may find you need more help one week because of appointments and other things. You can easily ask a carer or assistant to come more often here to help. It could be that you want to start out with an hour or two here and there. You can then add or remove time as you see fit.
