Healthcare at Home in Bedford
Improving quality of life with elderly healthcare at home services
With a range of age friendly activities available, such as theatre productions and museum exhibitions, living in Bedford is particularly rewarding for older individuals, especially those with healthcare concerns. As one gets older and obtaining healthcare at home becomes a higher priority, Better Healthcare Services in Bedford can provide professional and high quality in-home elderly care services, helping you get the most out of living in the beautiful Bedfordshire countryside.
As with the majority of the UK, though, the population of older people in Bedford is expected to increase exponentially, both in the short term and in the long term. In 2016, the population of over 65s living in Bedford was 29,200. However, by 2023, the population of over 65s is projected to rise by 16% and even more worryingly, by 2039, this population is expected to increase by 69%. With this in mind, it’s important to realise that an aging population will create a burden on the national healthcare system.
Despite this, Better Healthcare Services is on hand to provide comprehensive home care that allows you to be supported in the comfort of your home, whenever you need it.
The home care you need
Better Healthcare Services offers great homecare for people who need an extra helping hand at home. One of the best things about the service we provide is the fact that it’s personal and bespoke. This means that you can tailor the care you receive to your specific needs. Whether you require a home care service that involves daily visits, or a permanent live-in care, we can give you what you need to ensure that you remain independent and comfortable in your own home.
Our affordable healthcare at home is provided by excellent care workers who each have years of experience and are passionate about the work they do. They are dedicated and compassionate, and will personally work with you to ensure that you can continue to live your life as normal.
What we offer
Before we can send care workers to your home, a registered CQC manager will carry out an assessment either at your home, or at the hospital if necessary, in order to understand the type of care you require. They will also work with you to create a plan for your care regarding the services you need and the frequency of your homecare visits. This assessment also allows us to get to know you personally so that we can then match you with the care worker that has the relevant training and knowledge.
There are a variety of different home care services that we can provide. Each service is tailored to the specific support that you require. Our care options include:
- Chronically ill
Our care workers are trained, certified and knowledgeable. This allows then to deliver the best care – they understand your needs and can ensure that each need is met. The assistance they can provide includes:
- Personal care – grooming, bathing, dressing, toileting
- Assistance with getting in and out of bed
- Homemaking – shopping, meal preparation, light cleaning
- Providing respite for caregivers
- Supervising with medication
- Assisting with rehabilitation following a period of ill health
Coupled with the incredible personal care that we offer, we also provide a 24-hour telephone service that operates seven days a week, 365 days a year. A trained member of staff is available to help you, at all times, with any emergency you may have.
A Better Healthcare Service for you
Our domiciliary care can allow you to maintain your independence, freedom and dignity. At Better Healthcare Services, we believe that it is important to remain safe at home, surrounded by your personal belongings, instead of living in a generic residential home. Our carers, nurses and support workers provide outstanding healthcare for you at home, regardless of your health requirements and tailored to your specific needs.
We are “big enough to support and small enough to care”, which means that we have the staff available to help you manage your health, in addition to also focusing on your personal emotional needs.
