HERE TO HELP
From a fully installed adapted bathroom or kitchen to specialist care that will keep you safe and well, there is help out there that can make everyday tasks easier
Whether you need a little support around the home, live-in care or adaptations to your property to help with everyday living, there are experts on hand that can make it happen.
Home adaptations are changes you can make to your home, which make it safer and easier to move around and do everyday tasks. These changes can be major or minor but either way, they can make a huge difference.
From widening a doorway to installing a walk-in shower, or even just a rail to keep you steady, these adaptations can make all the difference. It may mean lowering worktops in kitchens or installing an outdoor ramp, a new security system or just seeking out household equipment and specialist gadgets to make life easier.
Here in the Ribble Valley we have a host of providers, all experts in their field, so if you or someone you know, needs help to do everyday tasks take assurance that there is help out there.
If you need assistance with regards to care and are finding it difficult to cope, but don’t want to live in a residential home, then flexible help is available in terms of care providers, who can provide as much or as little assistance as you require.
A quick assessment and a look at your lifestyle will soon make it clear how much care you need – if you are living at home it may well be that a package of care can be formulated alongside installing adaptations to suit you and your home.
Care providers are experts at dealing with these assessments so if you simply want help in the morning with getting up and dressed and help in the evening when it’s bedtime, they can assist. Alternatively, if you require a more intense package that includes making meals, personal care, help with mobility or major home adaptations, advice is always available.
Care packages can be ultimately flexible and suited to your personal budget, as can home adaptation projects.
So, if you or a loved one, struggles with everyday tasks there are numerous gizmos, gadgets and service providers who are there to help – from a kettle that makes it easier to pour, carers who pop in to check you’re okay, right down to major works that could see a whole kitchen or bathroom installed featuring a range of special adaptations, speak to the friendly experts who will be delighted to hear from you.
