Priory Nursing Agency & Homecare

Person-centered home care

Person centred home care

Our person-centered home involves assisting and supporting the client with various tasks such as:

  • Showering or bathing
  • Toileting or continence management
  • Assistance with dressing and grooming
  • Meal and snack preparation
  • Catheter care
  • Keeping client properly hydrated with hot & cold drinks and fluids
  • Prompting with medication
  • Assistance with communication with GPs and district nurses
  • Helping with oral care and hearing devices, skin care
  • Hoisting and transfers
  • Keeping client’s immediate environment organised
  • Other miscellaneous tasks

We strive to be flexible and we will be happy to discuss and accommodate the request if possible. The length of the visit can range from an hour or more, once or more during the course of the day; depending on the client’s condition, ability to transfer and their mobility, this care may be delivered by one care worker or by a team of two care workers.

If the client’s condition changes, the package can be reassessed by a qualified and experienced assessor to determine it still meets his/her needs. Our care workers are trained and mentored to be sympathetic and understanding as clients’ conditions on some days are more difficult than others.

As a provider, we believe it is important to encourage clients’ participation as much as possible. From our experience, engaging clients in this manner is beneficial to their recovery as well as to their physical and mental well-being. In the course of their work, care workers attempt to engage the client as much as possible.
