Family and Carers
Our experience as family carers means that we have a dual emphasis in the services we have developed – on the person requiring the care and support but equally on the wider family and friends who are so greatly impacted. In our experience the needs of families are rarely reflected in the support offered. We believe that only by addressing these needs and concerns can truly effective care be provided.
The stress and strain of providing care and support can lead to exhaustion, anxiety, irritability and even ill health. It can also mean that many visit are dominated by problem solving or even disputes.
@home safe is not about replacing human contact but helping to make that contact a positive engagement for all concerned.
