home care services compared to care homes in Bristol lockdown

As the entire region and wider country is once again restricted due to Covid-19, we wanted to use the News section to answer a question a few of our new clients have been asking us, namely “what are the benefits of Bristol home care services compared to care homes during lockdown?”

We find that after the Christmas and New Year holidays when relatives have seen their older family members (increasingly via Zoom calls, of course), they have noticed their elderly loved ones might be starting to require some care and support. This can be concerning and a worry.

The New Year is therefore a good time to consider home care services, as our professional, experienced and qualified care workers and support assistants in Bristol provide private clients with peace of mind, and help with various tasks such as:

Personal care in the home

Assistance with medication

Help with washing and dressing

Meal preparation

Shopping and cleaning

…..and, of course, daily companionship which has proven to be even more critical in 2020 for our home care clients during previous Covid-19 lockdowns.

Our award-winning home care services can provide real support in the home, which has a calming, comforting and positive effect on our private clients in Bristol.

Another element to our home care services in Bristol is through our superb Live-In Care services, whereby two of our care workers alternate shifts with one private client to provide a comprehensive level of care for them in their own home.

Home care services and Live-In Care services in Bristol are sometimes viewed by clients as providing a more personalised level of support, as well as giving clients the ability to remain in their own homes which are familiar and secure for them. Care homes have had some difficult press coverage in 2020.

We can also confirm no Premier Homecare clients (either home care or live-in care) have tested positive for Covid-19 so far, and all of our live-in care packages being delivered across Bristol over Christmas and New Year reported superb client feedback to our teams of dedicated care workers.

Live-in care packages are particularly Covid-safe with two care workers on alternate weekly shift patterns, working together to provide a high level of personalised care for the client.

Furthermore, all Premier Homecare care staff, including home care staff and live-in care workers, are offered weekly Covid-19 tests, in line with Government and Public Health England guidelines.

So, if you’re concerned about the welfare and well-being of an elderly relative or loved one, but are uncertain or nervous about care homes during the pandemic, why not get in touch with us to discuss our award-winning home care and live-in care service packages now available in Bristol.
