Personal Care
Clients are encouraged to do as much as possible for themselves, with support provided as necessary. This helps to maintain independence.

All personal care activities are carried out with the dignity and respect of the Client as the highest priority.

Personal Care tasks can include:

  • Helping people to get up and to go to bed, including hoisting if required.
  • Assisting people to get washed and dressed.
  • Bathing, showering, shaving, hair washing.
  • Skincare.
  • Applying surgical stockings (once trained).
  • Continence management.
  • Provision of personal care for Clients who are bed bound.
  • Toileting, using a hoist if required, and including catheter care, if the Client has one.

The UK Law now requires us to get consent from you for the use of cookies.

A cookie is a small file containing text and numbers generated by the website and passed from your browser back to our website when you revisit the site.

A cookie is used here to allow you to navigate the site, log in etc. Without this cookie (called a session cookie), this site would not work properly and so this has already been set.

We use a popular statistics tool called Google Analytics which uses non invasive cookies to allow us to find out how effective our marketing is, based on referencing how you got to our website (search engine, direct, or from another site etc).

We use an animation based rotating image which uses a cookie to know which image was last displayed so that as you move from page to page you are not seeing the same image every time.

We can also make use of third party services such as video clip players which can set cookies, for example to enable them to know that you part played a video clip previously, or to store customised settings such as brightness or volume. Close
