How to ensure the wellbeing of your elderly relative this Christmas
Are you concerned for an elderly loved one this Christmas? A welfare check from a member of our friendly care team will help put your mind at ease.
It is common for the elderly to value their independence and wish to remain at home over the Christmas period, even if this means spending it alone. You may also have booked a Christmas holiday abroad this year and are unable to offer the same support and company you usually would for your elderly relative.
In these cases, it is perfectly natural to worry about your loved one and want to know that their wellbeing and happiness over the festive period is being accounted for. Our welfare checks offer the perfect solution to your concerns and involve a trained member of our compassionate home care team visiting your loved one to evaluate their mental and physical wellbeing, whilst providing any assistance needed.
What is involved in our Christmas welfare checks?
Our welfare checks are flexible and totally depend on the individual requirements of the client. Whether your loved one needs assistance with household tasks such as cooking and cleaning, needs to attend a medical appointment or social event, or is simply looking for some company, our welfare carers are happy to oblige.
The visiting welfare carer will also make sure that your loved one’s home is warm, comfortable and that they have everything they need, such as medication and food in the fridge. If required, we have no problem helping with food shopping and will prepare meals and drinks, so your loved one can have their very own Christmas meal this festive season!
