As more families worry about their relatives’ safety in care homes, Promedica24 is stepping up to offer a safer alternative.
An article in The Guardian revealed that the UK’s care homes are at their lowest occupancy rate for years, estimated to be around 80%, as people look for alternative care options for their relatives. Many residential homes across the country have been hit hard by Covid-19, with cases spreading and sadly decimating elderly and vulnerable residents. That’s where Promedica24 comes in.
The senior care franchise’s Quality Assurance Director, Paula Beaney, spoke about how its innovative live-in care services can help to keep the most vulnerable people safe from the pandemic.
“We’ve noticed a growing interest in live-in care services for older and vulnerable people. Families are concerned about their loved ones and are looking for safe and sustainable care solutions which meet the physical and emotional needs of older and vulnerable people while significantly reducing the risk of infection.”
Promedica 24/7’s pioneering live-in care service gives its clients 24/7 assistance and company and is suitable for all kinds of needs, from complex health conditions like dementia and cancer to those who are simply craving company and help around the house. Many of its service users feel happier and healthier by staying in a familiar environment, and their families have peace of mind that they’re in safe hands.
Beaney explained how live-in care is often the best option for older people, but a lack of awareness about alternatives to care home causes it to be often overlooked.
“The vast majority of people we speak with … have very little knowledge about live-in care, with many seeing care homes as the default option.”
