Free one-to-one consultations at The Alzheimer’s Show
Here at SweetTree, we understand that taking the decision to employ a home care agency to help look after a loved one can be difficult, confusing and emotional. That’s why we are offering you the chance to talk in confidence with a member of our experienced, friendly and compassionate team about any issues or concerns you may have around choosing the right home care agency.
If you are visiting The Alzheimer’s Show at Olympia, London, on 9-10 June, please drop in to our stand B2, where you will be able to receive a 20-minute, one-to-one consultation completely free of charge. As well being able to discuss any personal concerns you or your loved one may have in complete confidence, we will also be able to answer any queries you may have, as well as offering practical advice and tips. As well as answering your specific questions applying to your personal situation, areas we will be more than happy to cover during your private consultation include:
About home care
You might think a home care provider helps simply with domestic chores or assists with personal care, such as washing and dressing, but you may be surprised to discover it can cover so much more. As well as meeting basic needs, home care can be the perfect opportunity to improve a loved one’s quality of life – something we value highly at SweetTree.
Choosing the right home care provider
Whether your loved one requires help for a few hours each week or full-time live-in care, it’s important to do your research first, to ensure any provider you employ can fully meet your needs and requirements. It can be helpful to talk to friends and relatives who have employed the services of a home care agency or, if you don’t know of anyone, then seek professional guidance from your GP or district nurse.
Questions to ask when speaking with home care agencies
Often, you can only obtain the answers you require when you know the right questions to ask. We can help you get the most from your interviews and visits with home care agencies.
Qualities of a good carer
If you have never had to employ the services of a home care agency before, it can be hard to know what you should look for when speaking with agencies. Our dedicated, professional and understanding team knows that ensuring your loved one receives the best care possible is of vital importance to you, which is why we will ensure you know what to look for in a potential carer.
Where to obtain financial advice
From where to ask for a Needs Assessment, to finding out what financial help you may be eligible for, we can help you make sense of any financial concerns you may have surrounding care and point you in the right direction to access the right support.
What to expect
Once you have contacted several care home providers, you may be unsure what they will offer you next, for example, a free consultation, or a home visit to match your loved one with a suitable carer. We will let you know what you can expect to happen next.
