At Be Independent Home Care we understand that the vast majority of people in Ireland would like to stay in their own home and remain connected to their communities. As health care professionals, we know clinical research has revealed that people stay healthier and recover more quickly from illness or surgery in the comfort of their own home.
Treating our clients as unique individuals and paying personal attention to each client’s particular needs is at the core of how we operate. We approach each client case differently and most importantly listen to our clients wishes. For example, we do not treat a client with Dementia by saying that they are a Dementia patient, but instead we carry out a detailed assessment which might identify that along with Dementia this particular client may also have mobility issues. We recognise that another client who might also have Dementia may not have mobility issues, but may need personal grooming assistance. Each case is treated differently and with the utmost sensitivity.
We frequently find that many of our clients need assistance with everyday ordinary errands such as food shopping, to dressing and washing themselves when they get up in the morning. The advantage of Be Independent Home Care is that we offer home care for just a few hours a week or where needed, 24 hour care. Our clients or their nominated point of contact decide how much support they want to have.
