Care Guide – Elderly Care
Caremark offer a variety of home care services, tailored to an older person’s specific needs. Our flexible care services are designed to enable older people to live as independently as possible in the comfort of their own homes. Care for older people is a perfect option for those who would prefer to stay at home, but need help to live independently.
We deliver care that takes into account our clients’ dignity at all times, whilst delivering friendly support. We ensure this by doing things 'with' the people we look after, rather than doing everything 'for' them. This approach helps older people maintain their sense of purpose and well-being.
Who would benefit?
Levels of care are tailored to the individual and it is suitable for anyone who requires a few hours of help per week to those who need 24/7 home care.
The best option will depend on the level and specific care that your loved one requires. We can help with:
Household jobs like cooking or light cleaning
Companionship like emotional and practical support
Prompting or assisting with personal care
Shopping for food or essentials
Medication prompting or support
Arranging appointments with healthcare professionals or friends
Recovery or convalescence following hospital discharge or illness
An alternative to Residential Care Homes
Home care is a convenient, direct alternative to residential care homes. Understandably, people often prefer this option.

We always support those wishes with our tailored care plans and it’s also important to note that most people are happier in their own homes.
