Home Help Service
What is home help?
Home help is a form of home care that is provided for older adults or anyone that might require extra support for a wide range of needs at home. Home help is aimed at providing this support while retaining as much independence as possible for the Service User.
Why home help?
It is important that your ageing loved one lives in a clean home so that they enjoy greater feelings of wellbeing and good health. For example, keeping refrigerators and cupboards free of expired or spoiled foods can avert food-borne illnesses. Also, to avoid fire hazards, stoves, toasters, ovens and other appliances must be regularly cleaned to avoid a build-up of grease, oils or crumbs.
It’s not easy for a senior or loved one with deteriorating mobility to keep ahead of the clutter in the home.
About You & I Care’s home help
You & I Care LTD’s home help service can literally be a lifesaver as we make it possible for your aging loved one to enjoy the peace of mind that comes with a clean and uncluttered home while leaving all the work to us.
Services covered under You & I Care’s home help
House cleaning: similar to housekeeping or maid services, our Carer provides dusting, damp mopping, scrubbing the bathroom and general tidying of living spaces as required or requested by the Service User.
Laundry: our Carer takes on tasks ranging from prewashing, and washing to drying, ironing and folding.
Kitchen maintenance: The You & I Care LTD Carer may not wear a chef’s hat but they do know their way around the kitchen. Meals can be planned in conjunction with a nutritionist or with the customer. Grocery planning and shopping, dishwashing, food maintenance, and preparing will surely fill the house with the welcoming aromas of every one’s favourite foods.
Home basis: This covers all the basics of looking after a home such as gardening, arranging lawn mowing or landscaping, garbage control heat and utility checks, watering indoor plants, replacing light bulbs, and everything else that may have at one time been addressed by the customer.
Pet care: A pet is sometimes the best therapy to fight loneliness, depression, medical problems or stress. The care giver will ensure that the pet will be part of the day’s activities.
Home help can start with visiting care starting from as little as 30 minutes per week, to live-in care with round-the-clock support.
Visiting care is suitable for you when you just need a couple of visits per week, while live-in care is suitable for you if you find that you are in regular need of extra support.
