The Flexibility of Home Care

Care is a very personal thing, and everyone should have the right to receive their care on their own terms.

That’s why home care is the preferred option for many people. Not only does the flexible nature mean you can maintain your independence, stay in familiar surroundings and keep your home comforts, but it also means your support is personalised to what you want and need.

Here are some more of the reasons why the flexibility of home care means it is fast becoming the most popular way to receive care and why Minster Home Care could be the right fit for you.

Life is Unpredictable

Life is unpredictable and your needs or wants can change from day to day. That’s why the flexibility of home care can be suited to someone who may be unaware of how their lives will pan out.

You may need recovery care, palliative care or irregular live-in care, whatever you need and whatever the notice, Minster Home Care will be there for you.

Your Routine is Our Routine

At Minster Home Care, your routine becomes our routine.

Our team of carers understand that people like things done in a certain way, and we never want to change the way you do things. If you like to shave first thing in the morning, go for a walk or have a lie-in – we’re simply there to support you to get on with your life.

Respite Care

Our respite care services are flexible around you and your family. If your primary carer needs a helping hand when they have other commitments, appointments or simply time to recharge, we can step in to help.

We understand how busy a carer’s life can be and our trained carers are more than happy to take over. The support we provide ranges from an afternoon to several days of care and can be arranged on short notice.

Benefits for Carers

The flexibility of home care is not just beneficial for those receiving it, but for the carers that are providing it too.

Most caregivers have the option to work shifts, giving them the choice to work in patterns that can fit around their lifestyle, for example, if they are studying or have a young family to care for.

Home care offers the freedom to work as little or as often as the carer likes. Part-time roles are regularly available, or they may even choose to work full-time hours over fewer days.
