Social interaction is an essential part of a healthy and fulfilling lifestyle. A live in carer can provide encouragement to re-connect with old friends, pursue interests and hobbies, and be involved with community activities.
Our Care Support Workers can help in the planning of special events such as visiting places of interest, sampling new foods, and enjoying music, entertainment and culture. At Olive Tree Care, we believe that everyone should be able to reclaim the mobility to enjoy life outside of the home.
One of the most common challenges faced by our service users is shopping for basics. Making the trip to a large supermarket which may not be located in the town centre can be a daunting task. Our carers will sit down with you and compose a shopping list, and do the shopping for you. Or if you enjoy venturing out on a shopping trip, maybe just to get out for some fresh air, or even as a means of socialising, then your carer can drive you safely to and from your shopping errands providing assistance along the way as needed. They can even tidy your cupboards and refrigerator, ensuring that food is always within date.
