Did you know loneliness has serious consequences on health and in turn cost implications for health and social services. The SCIE says that,
"Social isolation and loneliness have a detrimental effect on health and wellbeing. Studies show that being lonely or isolated can have an impact on blood pressure, and is closely linked to depression."
Loneliness is a vicious cycle; the longer a person feels lonely, the more lonely they become. In time they can become detached from society and find it difficult to reconnect and interact with groups or people. Demographically men over the age of 60 are far more likely to suffer from loneliness than any other group in society and, most worryingly, less likely to seek help or address the problem.
We engage with clients during some of the most challenging times of their lives, and we understand that choosing a care agency is complicated and challenging. Our materials are designed to address the many aspects of home support, and hopefully, mitigate your concerns.
When matching clients to potential carers, we consider:
Your needs, do you need someone with more experience in supporting you, and for example
Location. Where possible, we will always send you a carer local to you
Interests, do you both love cooking, gardening, and pets?
Other requirements, such as do you have a busy social calendar and need someone who can get you to your appointments on time?
We pay attention to the smallest of details because often, these will make the biggest difference.
