Hourly Care

Hourly care is a flexible care option that PrimeCarers offers. This care system enables the carer to visit the client's home for a few hours during the day, providing assistance and care. Common tasks include administering medication, helping with personal hygiene, carrying out some light domestic duties, preparing meals and providing companionship. For those who need personal care without the need for constant supervision, or for families who need to provide regular respite for a family carer, this type of care is an ideal option.

With hourly care, a fun afternoon of companionship or a helping hand with cleaning can drastically improve the quality of life for those in need. For more information on how this service might work for your circumstances, check our full guide on Hourly Care.

Overnight Care

Overnight care is an essential service for those whose needs become more challenging as the day unwinds into night. This type of home care is all about supporting clients who may be more restless during the night or who require round-the-clock care. Whether the need is for assistance with trips to the toilet, repositioning for those unable to move themselves, or ensuring medication is taken on time, PrimeCarers' overnight service is there to assist. It's also reassuring for family and friends who live elsewhere, knowing that someone is there throughout the night keeps minds at peace.

Live-in Care

Live-in care is an alternative to residential or nursing home care. A living carer can provide assistance with daily tasks and companionship in the comfort and familiarity of your own home. Practical services such as helping with cooking, cleaning, personal care and medication administration are all part of what a live-in care service can provide. However, companionship is the additional benefit that simply cannot be underestimated.

In Blaenau Gwent, live-in care is gaining popularity as more people being to appreciate the benefits that come with it, such as maintaining personal freedom and retaining a level of independence. Read more about PrimeCarers' Live-in Care here.

Caring for a Range of Needs

PrimeCare offers a variety of care packages tailored to the individual needs of each client. From companionship support to personal care to complex care, the carers are trained and experienced to deliver the required assistance.

Companionship Care

Having someone to share your day with can make a world of difference. PrimeCarers' companionship care supports people who may feel lonely or isolated, perhaps due to a lack of a consistent social circle or family living far away. The carer can sit and chat, accompany the client on shopping trips or activities and even assist with correspondence with friends and family.

Personal Care

Personal care aims to support those who have difficulties with daily activities such as getting out of bed, washing, dressing, and bathroom needs. A personal care carer can help with these intimate tasks while ensuring the dignity and respect of the client at all times.

Complex Care

Some clients may have more complex health needs due to conditions such as dementia, Parkinson's, MS or after a stroke. These individuals require more specialised care which PrimeCarers can provide, ensuring that the client is comfortable and safe. The carers are trained to handle a diverse range of situations and to respond effectively to any sudden changes in the client’s health condition.

PrimeCarers offers specialised support for dementia care, Parkinson's care, MS care and stroke recovery care.

Closing Thoughts

When selecting the type of home care that is most suitable for you or your loved one, it's crucial to take into account the specific needs, preferences, and interests of the person being cared for. These factors, along with the intensity and scheduling of the necessary support, will be critical in deciding whether hourly, overnight, or live-in care is the right service. One should also consider the conditions that need tending to, whether it's companionship, personal care, or complex care.
