Over the past few months, government cuts throughout the NHS have led to a number of care homes being closed or reduced in size, leaving care users without proper, affordable and appropriate round-the-clock care.
These closures may not produce entirely negative effects though. Many government officials including the Health Minister Dr Dan Poulter have openly claimed that caring for the elderly at home could benefit families and care users more. With up to a third of all residential care users perfectly healthy and able to be cared for in their own homes, why are so many institutionalised early on into their old age?
Care at home is what we at Apex Health + Social Care recommend. As well as negating the potential upset and distress a complete move and life change would cause, being cared for in the home can improve recovery times and general health and morale by simply being more comfortable and settled at home.
Trained carers and healthcare professionals are still made available to patients choosing to remain in their homes, and this care can of course be complete 24 hours a day domiciliary care. This provides even greater levels of individual care and each care package can be tailored to suit individual needs.
Apex Health + Social Care is committed to providing the best in home and healthcare. From social care to full-time domiciliary care, we look to provide only the highest quality care packages for every care user.
