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.
