While many people are able to live independently within their own homes, it can become more difficult for those with short or long term care needs. No-one wants to lose their independence and the help and support of family and friends is invaluable to help maintain that independence. Putting the appropriate care and support services in place can further maintain that independence and, in many cases, can help service users learn new ways to manage everyday living and remain in their own homes. This is also known as domiciliary care.
At Willowbrook we can support clients following a discharge from a hospital stay. We can assist with all aspects of personal care which can include dressing, bathing, preparation of meals and support with medication. Even those weekly jobs such as shopping, domestic cleaning and laundry can be too much after a hospital stay.
