Personal Care is delivered in a variety of ways:
Service Users who are nursed in bed and still require all their needs met
All service users who require assistance with bathing or showering
Rehabilitation – to promote independence and assist them with washing and dressing
Assisting with washing and dressing to maintain independence
All care is delivered with dignity, privacy and respect. Care can be delivered by a single carer or 2 carers (if required). Care is delivered within a window of time for example if you wanted a 9am call the suggested time band would be 08.30-09.30am. Personal care is normally 30-45 mins dependent upon needs which will be discussed at assessment and 15 minute calls are normally reserved for assistance with medication only.
