Better Healthcare at Home in Ipswich
The Better Healthcare team improving quality of elderly care at home through our Ipswich office
Receiving quality healthcare at home is becoming more important in our aging society. In 2016, Ipswich, the county town of Suffolk, experienced a population of 24,280 people who were aged 65 and over. By 2039, the population of over 65s in Suffolk is expected to increase by 59.7%. Suffolk is also predicted to have an older population than the rest of England, with one in three people being over 65 in Suffolk compared one in four people in England as a whole.
As the elderly population increases, many elderly people may choose to remain at home for as long as possible instead of in a nursing or residential home. With this in mind, Better Healthcare Services aim to provide a comprehensive service to support you at home.
You’re at home care
At Better Healthcare Services, your comfort and care is incredibly important to us. We believe that receiving bespoke care from the comfort of your own home is more beneficial than living in a residential home. Surrounded by your own possessions you’ll be able to continue with your regular lifestyle with the additional help of your personal carer.
Our service is designed around you and the care you need. We offer competitive rates and are dedicated to providing you with exceptional care. Our carers all have years of experience under their belts and will work with you to make your life more comfortable.
Our home care services
Our home care service is incredibly flexible and allows you to select and alter the number of hours and days in which you receive care. Whether you would like daily visits or a more permanent live-in care, the decision is entirely yours. And the best thing is, you can change your mind whenever you want.
Before one of care workers can officially move in, you will first be visited by a registered CQC manager who will conduct a personal assessment of the care you require. This will help us to understand more about you as an individual and also about the type of care that will best work for you. You can also use this as an opportunity to talk to us about any questions or concerns you may have regarding your care, and work with us to create a detailed plan for the service that you want.
We have a range of home care services on offer, depending on the type and level of support you need. Such care options include:
- Chronically ill
Our carers, nurses and support workers are trained, certified and passionate about their jobs. They ensure that you are well cared for and provide a comprehensive service to help improve your quality of living. The assistance they can offer you includes:
