FAQs For Care Services
The need to change care happens often as our needs shift. Our team understand that you may need to review your care and are on hand to carry out regular reviews. We are always happy to hear from members of close family about ways they think your care will benefit you the most.
A care plan will be agreed with you which details the exact instructions that we will do. This plan becomes a work list for each day and we use it to ensure we are providing the best care and support. See here for a list of personal care services that we can do.
We are available 24/7, 365 days a year to provide you with a cost-effective, professional and friendly care service.
One of the major ways that you can reduce the risk of a fall is to make sure you are using the correct equipment or aids. Speaking to an occupational therapist can give you a useful insight into what equipment would be suitable for you and what they recommend being a useful aid. These pieces of equipment should be available to either loan from your local authority or from a specialist supplier.
There are many types of walking aids and equipment available, including:
- Walking frames
- Grab rails
- Raised sears
- Aids for accessing hard to reach items
Any tasks that we are able to carry out will be listed in your care plan. Giving injections or changing sterile dressings is not something that we can do. If a task will cause risk to the person we provide care to or the Horizon Care Ltd care worker, then we will not carry this out. If there are any changes to your care then they will be discussed with you.
This will depend on the amount of care visits you receive a week, but we rarely have just one career attached to a particular customer. Having other care workers means that if your usual carer is on holiday or ill, you will never be left without help. Despite this, we try to keep the number of carers for each person down to a minimum.
