Night care service for seniors

Kentish Home Care is here for you if you or a family member need high quality night care services for seniors. If you or the person that needs care experience problems they require assistance with throughout the night, we can help. Our services are designed to ensure everyone gets the rest that they need, safe in the knowledge that quality care is being provided even in the small hours.

Getting a good night’s rest

There’s no denying that being a care giver can be tough. Providing care can be very satisfying, but it can also be tiring. If you are able to help during the days and evenings, but not in the night, we can bridge the gap. We’re one of the most highly-regarded care companies in the area and always go the extra mile to deliver the outstanding service our clients are looking for. Our night care services for seniors allow daytime carers such as friends, family members or partners to go “off duty”, allowing them to get the good night’s sleep they require safe in the knowledge that their loved one is receiving the quality care that they need.

Waking and Sitting Services

Not all people need the same kind of night care service for seniors. This is why we offer two different main types of night care, which are Waking Service and Sitting Service. If you or the elderly person need constant care throughout the night, a Waking Service could be the ideal option. If they need some help but not constant care, Sitting Service may be the right choice. With sitting service, care givers are able to nap, but are always available if the client needs them. We will discuss your options with you in depth so you can reach an informed decision on which form of care is the most suitable.

Housekeeping services for the disabled

Kentish Home Care can assist you if you’re an elderly person who requires a little help with some housekeeping duties. We know how important it is to many elderly people to stay in their own homes for as long as possible, but if there are some tasks you are having trouble with, we can bridge the gap. Maybe you’re recovering from an illness or an operation and are no longer able to perform certain housekeeping duties, but are fully competent to complete other tasks? Then our services could be an ideal match for you.

Maintain your independence

We are here to help you maintain the independence you’re used to. Housekeeping duties can pile up and become daunting rather quickly, but we can help you cope with these challenges by offering regular cleaning and completing errands on your behalf on a daily basis. The chores we could be helping you with might include washing up, dusting tables and making beds to give some examples. We can also help you with duties that only need to be completed once or twice every week such as vacuuming, doing laundry and mopping.

Get all the help you need

At Kentish Home Care, we’re also able to offer valuable deep clean and sanitising services. This could be the case if you’re about to return from the hospital or if your home needs extra attention for health reasons. We can work with you or your family to outline the tasks that need to be done before acting accordingly. Whether it’s scrubbing bathrooms, mopping, dusting, vacuuming or linen-cleaning that needs to be completed, you can count on us to do everything in our power to provide you with the valuable housekeeping services you need, so why not get in touch today to find out more?

Benefits of respite care for the elderly

There are many benefits attached to respite care for elderly people. Respite care providers like Kentish Home Care can help if an elderly person’s primary carer needs a break to recharge their batteries after a lengthy spell of looking after a loved one. Many elderly people are drawn to staying in their own homes as opposed to moving into sheltered accommodation, which means family members often need to be called upon to provide care. No matter how good relations between the elderly person and the person providing the care are, it’s inevitable that the carer will require a break at some point. This is where Kentish Home Care comes in.

Time to unwind

Sometime the elderly person is not the only big responsibility that the caregiver has. Respite care provides carers with the opportunity to get away from it all for a few days safe in the knowledge that the person they care for is getting the attention that they need to stay healthy and happy. Kentish Home Care can help if you’re a caregiver that requires a little time for yourself. Respite care also allows the elderly person to spend time away from their carer. It gives carers the time they need to focus on personal or business matters, or to simply relax.
Get the amount of care you need

We can provide respite care for a few hours or several days. Care can consist of all sorts of help, from personal care like bathing, dressing and help getting out of bed to practical home care including cooking, cleaning and washing. We can also provide the elderly person with assistance on medication whilst spending quality time with them if this is needed. Talk to Kentish Home Care today if you need to arrange respite care for an elderly person as soon as possible.

Housekeeping services in Beckenham

Housekeeping services in Beckenham

Looking for housekeeping services in Beckenham or Bromley? Kentish Homecare may be able to offer you a solution.

A helping hand
We cater for the elderly, the ill or injured, or those who have recently left hospital. One of the many, many services we offer is housekeeping.

Kentish Homecare believe that maintaining independence is just as important as providing the care that someone needs. That’s why, when it comes down to housekeeping, we don’t rid you of all the responsibilities you previously had, we aim to help relieve some of the stress that everyday tasks can cause.

The feeling of being home after a recent hospital stay is one of relief. But housekeeping duties will quickly pile up if they aren’t kept on top of for whatever reason. If you’re simply in recovery, struggle to get around, or have a more chronic condition, we can help you with everything from regular cleaning to daily errands.

The most basic tasks can quickly turn into the hardest when you’re feeling vulnerable. Making the bed, washing the dishes, and sweeping/dusting can quickly become near-impossible. You can create a personal care plan which covers all of these areas if need be. If you’re under 24-hour care, your personal carer will not only take care of your personal needs, but will also help out with these tasks.

Every home needs a deep clean now and again. No matter what sort of plan you’re on, our staff can provide any extra cleaning services you may need. Our staff can clean bathrooms, wash bed sheets, and vacuum, amongst other services. When creating your plan, you can advice us as to what would be best for you. This may be extra beneficial for health reasons relating to people who have just left hospital.

Personal affairs
Kentish Homecare can help with more than just housework, however. Our caregivers can help you with bill payments and collections, also. We can set up a schedule to pay your bills for you, and to collect any pension or other monies owed to you each month. If you prefer to work online, our staff can manage those, and ensure that you have all necessary receipts and records. You can also work with your caregiver; they will sit with you to ensure that all bills are paid correctly.

Besides basic necessities, our caregivers can also help out with the entertainment side of things.  When it comes to shopping, your carer can either assist you, or perform the full trip for you. This ensures that you never miss buying a gift for a special occasion, etc.  Our caregivers can also accompany you to the cinemas, somewhere to eat, or any other area of leisure.

For a full list of our services, click here.

At Kentish Homecare, we aim for a balance of high quality care and maintaining the client’s independence. With over 25 years experience in the industry, and each member of staff being friendly, professional, and reliable, you can count on us.

Pet care services

When you’re feeling vulnerable, sometimes it can be hard to care for our four-legged friends at the same time. At Kentish Homecare, we have the ideal solution for this.

The benefit of pets

Studies have shown that owning a pet and spending quality time with animals increases happiness, reduces stress levels, and aids us in living a longer life. With benefits like these, it’s easy to see why a large proportion of the elderly/vulnerable choose to own pets.

However, sometimes illness or injury prevents you from giving your pet the care it needs. While family members or friends could take care of the animal, it may not always be possible, due to time constraints etc. Some have seen rather off-putting solutions such as putting the animal in a kennel, or even giving it up for adoption, as feasible.

It would be absolutely devastating to separate someone from their beloved pet in any circumstance, that’s why Kentish Homecare offers a pet care service, too!

Some members of staff are trained to care for the elderly individual and for the pet in question. It allows the person and animal to remain at home together, whilst ensuring both parties receive the care they need. Your pet’s care plan is tailored to its needs, too!

We can walk your pets how often they need one/ how long they need to be walked for, so your pet’s fitness doesn’t suffer. If the animal is a tad more independent, we can perform basic tasks such as making sure it’s fed and providing water, cleaning any litter trays or any mess it makes, or enjoying some much-needed playtime with them.

Best of both worlds

We can carry out our pet care services alongside the bespoke care packages we already offer, to ensure that every member of the family is happy, comfortable, and safe during trying times.

Our range of personal care services can be chopped and change to how you see fit. Our carers are skilled in all areas of care, be it helping you get dressed, to helping to wash, to taking you to the cinemas. We offer respite care, for when the primary caregiver cannot be there, night care, and 24-hour care for the more vulnerable. Contact us today for a tailor-made care plan for you or a loved one.

With over 25 years experience in the industry, it’s fair to say you can count on us! All of our staff are trained to the highest standard, and are friendly, polite, and reliable. Whilst caring for our clients, we encourage and help them to maintain their independence also.

We don’t just offer care to the elderly, though. We cater to those 18 and above with a diversity of conditions such as dementia, cerebral palsy, or muscular dystrophy. Our care solutions would also be suitable for any adult with any sort of long-term injury or illness.

Personal care services

For whatever reasons you may need them, be it recovering from illness or injury, or simply feeling that personal care services would be best for you, Kentish Homecare offers a wide choice when it comes to care.
All of our plans are bespoke

We care about each of our client’s individual needs.  Our staff will work with you to develop a customised care plan. We can even work with others that visit you, be it family members or friends, to ensure your plain is perfect for you. Before we develop a care plan, we assess the health situation of the person wanting care. This is the ideal time to raise any concerns and ask questions. Family and friends can also sit in on the assessment meeting.
What exactly is on offer?

We understand that many people want to maintain independence when ill/injured/elderly, but everyone needs a little help sometimes! A main concern is often health, appearance, and hygiene. Our staff can help with basic hygiene such as showering, bathing, and using the toilet. They can also help out with getting you dressed, helping with hair and makeup, and brushing your teeth.
Our staff will try their hardest to meet your every last need, even if it’s just needing someone to sit and have a chat with! Having lowered independence shouldn’t mean that privacy or dignity are lowered, however. Our staff and nurses aim to provide their services with the utmost respect. We also offer help with meal preparation. Be it breakfast, lunch, dinner, or anything in-between, our staff can give you however much help you need.
If whoever is needed care is currently on any form of medication, our staff can work with your healthcare professional to ensure you take the correct medication, at the correct time, in the correct way. Personal affairs are a big part of an independent lifestyle. Be it a trip to the shops, attending family events, or paying your bills; our staff are on hand to give you all of the help and support you need.
Need something different?

If you, or whoever is the primary care giver, can’t provide care for any reason, we offer respite care as one of our many services. Respite care can be anything from a few hours to several days. This is also tailored to the individual’s needs. Be it a simple chat for a few hours, or a few days of personal care, we can help.
Similarly, we offer a rehabilitation service. If you’ve been ill or hospitalised, it can sometimes be difficult to get back on your feet. We can help you to gain independence in your own home again, at your own pace.
Flexibility is key when it comes to care. We understand that some may need care just throughout the night, or may need to be cared for 24/7. We can easily tailor our plans to these needs. We’ve been serving the Bromley and Beckenham areas for over 25 years now. All of our staff and nurses are trained and experienced, and committed to giving you the highest standard of care, whilst helping to maintain your independence.
Regardless of if you’re looking for yourself, or for a relative/friend, you can rely on us to deliver the care needed.
Contact us for more information.
