7 Common Types of Care at Home


If you or a loved one are struggling at home, it can be difficult to understand what types of care may be right for you. There are many different types of care available, so it can be helpful to understand what type of service you will need in order to work out a care plan that is suitable for your needs.


Wanting to stay in your home can be a major factor that delays those needing help from seeking out a carer. However, with care at home services you are able to enjoy the benefits of having a full or part time carer, without having to leave your home.

Live In Care

Live in care is a perfect solution for those with full time needs who require 24/7 care while remaining in the comfort of their own home.

Your live-in carer is able to assist with basic help such as washing, dressing and food preparation, enabling you to stay at home for longer. Live in care also gives family and friends peace of mind knowing that their loved one is receiving one to one attention from an experienced carer.

Dementia Care

With dementia affecting one in six people over the age of 80 and those figures increasing as we live longer, living with dementia is becoming a wide spread issue. For those affected, staying in the familiar surroundings of their own homes can help to ease some of the symptoms associated with the disease.

That’s why care at home can be a sound option when it comes to caring for someone with dementia. It can be very difficult for family members to know how to deal with someone suffering with dementia, as symptoms can mean that the patient can be confused, or find it difficult to control their emotions. That’s why our specialist dementia carers are trained to deal with clients with dementia.

Respite Care

For those who look after a loved one with care needs, having a break can be highly beneficial both for their mental and physical wellbeing. Respite care offers fulltime caregivers a much-needed break, allowing them to take some time to themselves, which can be great for the person being cared for, as it allows their carer time to recharge and therefore be better equipped to help them.

Our respite care services will match you with a carer who can fit around your routine, allowing you flexibility around when you need help.

Convalescence Care

If you are coming home from hospital after an illness or injury, there’s nothing better than the comfort of your own home. However, sometime you may require additional support in order to recover properly, such as help with physical tasks, getting around, or using specialist equipment to help you get better.

Secure Healthcare Solutions offer you a wide range of convalescence care which is tailored to your needs. Whether you just require an extra pair of hands or a dedicated nurse who can help you with your medication, we will work out a plan tailored to your needs, and can even arrange transport to get you home.

Physical Disability Care

There can be numerous physical difficulties that a person experiences that will require them to need a little help at home. From having a carer to help with manual tasks that may have become difficult, to more serious injuries or disabilities that require round the clock assistance, enabling someone with physical disabilities to lead as independent and active a lifestyle as possible will help to ensure both physcial and mental wellbeing.

We can assist with coming up with a tailored care plan that is suited to the requirements of the person requiring help, taking into account both their personality and lifestyle.

Palliative Care

Palliative care, which is also known as end of life care, helps to ensure that the patient is comfortable, and well looked after in the familiar and comfortable surrounding of their own home. It also offers support to friends and family at a very difficult time.

Learning Disabilities Care

Establishing a care plan for someone with a learning disability will take into account the complex requirements of the person needing care. In many cases the benefits of help with homecare for someone with learning disabilities can be both in terms of general support – such as help with maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and can also help with building social skills.

Care plans can focus on the development of vital life skills as well as assisting the person needing care with forming and maintaining social relationships.


At Secure Healthcare Solutions all of our care plans are as individual as the person requiring care – so get in touch to find out how we can assist you.
