Last Thursday Everycare (Central Hants) Ltd had a stall on Winchester Market. We attracted lots of visitors and enjoyed communicating with many local people about the Home Care and Live-in Care services that we provide. We also got the opportunity to talk about our current employment opportunities.

A big thank you to our wonderful staff that came down to support us.

We had a very successful and fun day and hope to do this again in the future.

Supporting the Local Community in Home Care

Supporting the Local Community in Home Care

Event

Everycare Winchester showed their commitment to supporting the local community by attending the Fair Oak Fete on the 30th June with a stand at the event.

Our stand attracted several visitors and we were able to communicate with many local people about the Home Care and Live-in Care services that we provide along with the employment opportunities that there are with Everycare.

Paula and Olivia were on the stand all day and managed to survive the summer heat as it was another scorching day with temperatures into the low 30’s. Paula commented: “It is great to able to talk to people in such a relaxed atmosphere, we met many friendly people and will definitely be at more events in the future”.

Everycare have already run several TechFest65 events to support the local community in the use of technology and will be running another later in the year.

Everycare Winchester enjoy supporting the local community and spreading the word about the Home Care and Live-in Care services that we supply.

Hampshire Live-in Care – Things to Consider

Hampshire Live-in Care – Things to Consider

24 Hour Care Home Care Live-in

When you get to a point where you are struggling to look after yourself at home you may be considering getting help or thinking about residential care  or Live-in care but be concerned about what choices there are and not sure how to go about finding out.

We believe at Everycare that we are willing to give you appropriate advice in making a decision about what you need. In this article we give some basic advice but you are more than welcome to give us a call on 01962 842548.

This article is assuming that you are past the point of just needing limited help which can be achieved using daily visits from a carer.

Often people believe that they can turn to relatives or neighbours but so many people are living busy lives and can help out but cannot commit to being available full-time. It can often be stressful looking after relatives or friends, especially when the person doing the caring wants to go on holiday or is being over-stretched by other responsibilities.

People often think that their only choice is to sell up and move into Residential Care but this can feel like a drastic and final move. There is not room in Residential Care to take all your belongings with you and you have to like living by other people’s rules. For some this suits them because there are other people to interact with and the home may have social events to take part in.

The majority of people, though, seem to want to have the option of staying at home as long as possible where they can live by their own rules and have people round whenever they want. This is where Live-in care comes into its own.

Those that are aware of Live-in care often look at the option of finding their own private care worker to look after them, because it can be cheaper. Under the current employment laws it is tricky using the services of a private carer because you are effectively employing them and could be responsible for tax and National Insurance and, even if you are only employing one person, you must offer them a pension scheme.

Private care workers need to have insurance to cover them in case something goes wrong, they will need to have breaks that you would have to find cover for. If the private care worker suddenly got ill you may have a problem getting cover. Private Care workers are not regulated and are therefore, not having to meet any particular standards and there is no oversight of their work.

Everycare Winchester supply Live-in care as a CQC (Care Quality Commission) regulated provider. Be aware that some organisations just introduce the Live-in Care workers and are not regulated, this still leaves you at risk of being in the position of being an employer.

We are unique in comparison to some Live-in care organisations in that we are supplying a local service where we can do hands-on management. As we have already been doing home care for 7 years we can cover Live-in carer breaks and do additional visits if required to deal with more complicated cases.

Please give us a call if you want any advice we are happy to talk to you about the service that we can supply with regard to Live-in care. We are here to help to live a fulfilled life at home for as long as possible.
