• Assistance with a good start of day, with help to get up, wash, shower or bath, get dressed and have breakfast.
  • Helping with shopping support.
  • Preparation of food and drink.
  • Performing domestic tasks such as cleaning, laundry and ironing either on a regular basis or as a ‘spring clean’,  whatever the season.
  • Provision of care services through the night, for example, a ‘sleeper night’ basis, where the care worker expects a reasonable night's sleep but is on hand for emergencies, or a ‘waking night’ where the care worker is on duty throughout the night.
  • Ensuring a timely prompt for medication.
  • Pampering sessions – the occasional visit to organise bathing, clean clothes, fresh bedding and a thoughtfully prepared meal before bedtime. 
  • Help with getting ready for bed.
  • Live in care – providing a care worker to live with you in your home. Similarly, we often provide live-in care when a service user needs temporary support through a period of convalescence or recuperation when returning from hospital.
