We recently looked after a lovely lady who contacted us after she needed some Temporary In Home Care.
This lady is a very independent 83 year old, however after experiencing a funny turn, she was taken into hospital where doctors discovered she had a hole in her heart. Although she already knew about this, it was something that had never affected her before.
When she was discharged and able to go home, a relative stayed with her to ensure she was looked after. Whilst the close relative was staying, everything was fine. However, due to a holiday previously booked, she could only spend a short amount of time with her. The lady started to feel apprehensive and anxious about being left on her own, which of course made her relative worried too.
Temporary In Home Care
They contacted us and explained the situation and we were able to arrange for one of our experienced carers to stay with her for four evenings which of course, made her feel happier and put her relative at ease knowing that we would be spending time with her.
After the four days we re-assessed our temporary in home care user to see how she was feeling and she agreed that her confidence had returned and was happy to be at home overnight alone.
We left her for her first night with our “on call” number and she was reassured if she felt anxious she could call us. This lady is now back to feeling like her happier, independent self and able to stay in her home alone.
Our lady now knows if the need arises again for temporary in home care, she has CareXL she can rely on.
What a lovely way to help someone, it’s very satisfying when we see them regain their confidence. It makes us feel like we’re doing a great job! If you need to arrange temporary in home care for yourself or a family member then call our friendly office team on 01604 636980.
