Anyone who’s had to organise care for someone elderly or vulnerable that they love, or for themselves, will tell you that all care is not the same in the Ashfield area of Nottingham.
For starters, many people don’t realise that ‘going into a home’ is not the only option. That knowledge can be quite a relief to some people who realise they need some assistance, but value their independence. Or for those who just can’t face the thought of moving at their time of life. Maybe they’ve lived in the same house for decades, brought up a family there, and can’t bear the thought of leaving those precious memories behind.
There is a range of care at home available, and it can generally be carefully tailored to an individual’s specific needs, whether that be a helping hand for a few hours a week or 24 hour care. Or maybe you care for someone and need a break…then you should be able to organise respite care for a couple of hours, a weekend, a week, a fortnight…as long as you need in order to recharge your batteries! Or maybe you need care in order to go on holiday yourself? Ask a reputable company if this is a service they can offer. You might be surprised to learn that it is.
We hear a lot about ‘bed blocking’ in the NHS and sometimes this phrase makes it sounds like it’s the people occupying the beds that are doing the blocking! On the contrary, vulnerable and elderly patients are often desperate to leave hospital but unable to because the somewhat clunky system makes it time-consuming to organise the next step in their care.
This isn’t just bad news for the NHS and the patients waiting for the occupied beds, it can be detrimental to the health and wellbeing of the patients who are in a hospital bed they don’t strictly speaking need. They are susceptible to infections in hospitals, and possibly bed sores. Not to mention boredom! It may well be possible to organise home care to facilitate an earlier and more straightforward discharge from hospital after surgery or illness.
