At all times our carers encourage the service users to do as much for themselves as possible. Their goal is to provide assistance and promote independence. By allowing and encouraging them to do what they can for themselves, the carer will encourage your loved one and help them gain confidence in tasks which they may be able to manage without help.
Olive Tree Care’s carers can assist service users in and out of the bath, with appropriate aids as needed, maintaining a safe and clean environment. Assistance can be provided with washing and dressing as well as help with continence issues. If the service user has difficulty remembering to take their medication, our carers can remind them at the correct time. You can be reassured that the medication will be the correct dosage, has not already been taken and will be accurately recorded. All expiry dates for medication will be checked and medication will be stored correctly and safely to ensure it is not damaged.
It may be that your relative is not physically able to take their medication. Carers can assist with dossett boxes, blister packs. They can also offer assistance with prescriptions and medications that require collection from the chemist. Olive Tree Care’s carers can deal with all situations including alerting the medical team or calling the emergency services as required.
If you have been told you may not get better from a condition you have, Palliative care is an option offered by Olive Tree Care for people living with a terminal illness where a cure is no longer possible.
