At the Heart of Care

Homecare is not just personal care and support to vulnerable people within their own homes. A care worker will offer so much more including emotional support, guidance, encouragement and in many cases, a friendship.

There are service users that have no close friends or family, so it's often the case that a care worker is the only contact they will receive all day. This makes the role of a care worker all the more important to the individual. Care workers themselves may not even realise the effect they will have on a service user as for many, it just comes naturally.


What does the role entail?

In addition to their regular duties of meal preparation, medication assistance, laundry and cleaning, bathing, grooming and toileting, they support with:

  • Preventing loneliness and isolation
  • Promoting dignity and independence
  • Encouragement at mealtimes
  • Gentle persuasions towards better health, such as taking medication, gentle exercise and drinking fluids
  • Listening, understanding and interacting
  • Guidance for staying safe, keeping warm or cool in changing climates

These traits help preserve the independence of our service users and keep their families and close friends reassured that they are receiving the best possible care available.
