A CARE company has launched a new live-in service during the coronavirus pandemic.
Chiefs at the Alcedo Care Group, who have are based on Hoghton Street in Southport, have launched a new Live-in Care Division. Offering 24/7 support at home, the new service provides a range of levels, from companionship and emotional support to help with medication, personal care, dementia and more complex care services, with bespoke packages created tailored to suit the needs of every client.
Available for individuals or couples of all ages, clients receive a complete one-to-one care service, unrivalled by residential homes, with the ultimate aim of helping clients maintain their independence, routines and lifestyle for as long as possible and provide peace of mind for family and loved ones. Alcedo Care’s Live-in care service also offers short term respite support, covering holidays and trips away as well as hospital discharge convalescence.
Now available across the North West, Alcedo Care forecasts that it will create over 40 new jobs before the end of the year. The group anticipates the demand for live-in care services will be strong for many years to come. Now more than ever people are carefully considering options other than traditional residential care, the main drivers being concerns over the safety of a shared environment, over which they have no control, and a chance to avoid the emotional pain caused by separation from family, loved ones and beloved pets.
Andy Boardman, managing director at Alcedo Care added: “There is a real desire to keep loved ones safe and well at home, which has without doubt intensified during the recent pandemic. Many families were not able to provide the care required due to lockdown restrictions and we saw a big increase in the number of enquiries for 24/7 care at home.
“Our new Live-in care service addresses this need, providing both long term and short term support that is flexible and represents value for money. The bespoke care packages ensure each and every client receives continuous care that perfectly suits their needs, with all carers trained to Alcedo Care’s exacting standards and employed directly by us.
“Using the latest technology, the families of our clients benefit from real-time remote access to our care notes, ensuring they are kept fully up-to-date at time convenient to them.”
