Elaine E | Daughter of Client
"My Dad has been a Client of Right at Home Colchester since November 2019. We are extremely happy with all aspects of his care. Each Carer shows him and my Mum the utmost compassion, dignity, and empathy. My Mum was very reluctant in the early days, as we started this new chapter, but she now looks forward to their daily visits, as the care they all show to both of them is amazing. 10/10 Right at Home. You also give me peace of mind that they are in safe hands. Thank you"
Why is elderly care important?
Needing a little help is an inevitable part of getting older. Regardless of healthcare needs or specialist requirements, the structure of our lives change as we reach old age. Elderly care enables people to continue living as they choose, and where they choose, with extra support as and when they need it.
DID YOU KNOW? The UK population is ageing. By 2039, the number of people age 75 and over is expected to double from 5 million to nearly 10 million. Meaning there is going to be an even bigger demand for care.
By offering homecare for elderly people in their own home, we enable our Clients to maintain dignity and independence in familiar surroundings. Elder care is important for many, as a way of completing practical, day-to-day activities safely. For many older people across Colchester, it is often vital for combating loneliness.
For Clients with dementia, elderly care at home is vital for providing a calm, reassuring and familiar structure. For others, elder care offers comfort, knowing that there’s always someone you can rely on.
