How Hourly Care Works

It can often be difficult to acknowledge that it is time to ask for a little help or support.

It may be physical tasks, housekeeping, personal care or rehabilitation following a hospital discharge. Whatever your needs, a regular visit could make all the difference. It needn’t be as daunting as you think.

But here at Blue Ribbon Care we are often asked how hourly care works. So we’ve put together a few tips on what to do and how we can help.

At Blue Ribbon we say that the first thing to do is talk to us. Our team talk to people all the time,  discussing what care services we can provide for them.

This would be an informal chat – a chance for you to ask the questions you have and allay your fears or preconceptions. Whether you simply require some short term or respite care, convalescence or you are planning for your long term needs we will have a programme of visits you can choose from.

Care Workers can visit as frequently as you like, from half an hour through to longer ‘sitting’ calls that can take half the day or even help during the night – ‘waking nights’ or ‘sleep ins’.

How to Arrange Hourly Care

How hourly care works is entirely up to you and your family. When do you need that extra bit of assistance around the home? When you are doing your household chores, grocery shopping. Any time of day or night Blue Ribbon Care are here for you!

The next step is for us all to get together and for you to meet one of our assessing and reviewing officers.  This meeting builds on your earlier discussions and will look at clarifying the level of support required and for you to set your expectations. What we do then is prepare your Individual Support Plan. This document will detail all of your needs, from medication to mobility, all your routines are detailed for Care Workers to understand and follow. With the flexibility to constantly evolve, this forms the cornerstone of your service.

How Hourly Care Works is you choose when you need or want us around!

Our professional care teams work within their own local areas and so there is a strong likelihood that they are already supporting somebody in your village or town already. We will source the right carer for your needs and for added peace of mind, you can meet them before care begins.
