At Novus Care, care isn’t just about supporting someone with day to day practicalities; it can be something as simple as popping in to have a chat over a cup of tea or taking someone out for a walk to go or to visit their best friend. This is exactly what our care team in Canvey Island did for their client Doreen who is living with Dementia.
Doreen is 85 years young and has been receiving care at home for over 3 years from Novus Care. We have been supporting Doreen and her husband Peter to ensure she continues to enjoy an independent, dignified life at home. Doreen has 4 visits per day from her carers and loves going out and about.
One afternoon, along with her husband Peter, her carers took her for an afternoon tea to their local Morrisons café. However just as they entered the café the fire alarm went off – luckily this was a false alarm and they all got to enjoy a lovely afternoon eating a wonderful selection of sandwiches, fruit scones, clotted cream, jam and cakes.
This is an example of how our home care services let you continue to live the life you want. A carer can make all the difference to someone’s life from someone just popping in once a day to ensure all is well to 24/7 live in care. We can support with helping you take your medication, housework or personal care through to cooking your favourite meals. Our fully regulated care service lets you continue living the life you want, on your terms.
