When supporting young adults, there is two ways that we can provide care and support. This can be provided in a home care environment or within a care home setting.

Providing care in a personal home care setting has become very popular within society and it allows individuals to be close to their loved ones, around familiar surroundings. Another benefit of home care is that healthcare provided is more flexible, for example it could be provided for a few hours a day or a few times a week. The cost of this care is much lower compared to care within a care home. Home care also allows healthcare teams to build a stronger relationship with individual patients.

In a care home setting, care is generally more full time with individuals that have more serious healthcare conditions. Care in a care home setting is more routine based and you can not be around your loved ones as much.

The United Kingdom Homecare association estimates that around 249 million hours of home care is delivered to individuals in the UK each year. 71% of people that require care and support, prefer to remain in their own home, as they age. We live in an ageing population and the number of individuals preferring home care close to their loved ones and around their loved ones continues to increase, there is a growing need for healthcare workers to work within a home care setting.

Personal home care offers a variety of care and support to individuals within a home care setting, from those with learning and physical disabilities to individuals with mental health needs or mobility issues. This allows individuals that require care to remain independent and stay close to their loved ones around their family surroundings. With home care, there is flexibility and adaptions that can be made to facilitate this.

For home care, domiciliary care workers will assist with basic tasks around the house, complex carers will deal with individuals with more complex needs such as ventilation, autism etc. Nurses are also on call to deal with more complicated patient matters, whether this is administering treatment, monitoring healthcare or dealing with wounds.

Some of the major benefits of home care includes:

Health and wellbeing
Home care is beneficial for better health and well-being. Research carried out shows that people that receive care at home, have a reduced risk of hospital admissions, reduction in falls in the elderly and higher levels of happiness and satisfaction.

Independent home care
Personal home care services offer much more independence, compared to hospital or care home care and support. From meals to activities, there is much more flexibility. Within a home care setting, you are not restricted as much and you can carry out activities and aspects of normal life with your loved ones and around familiar surroundings.

Support at home to meet tailored needs
Within a home care setting, care is tailored to an individual. Within a hospital setting or care home settings, the healthcare team will be required to look after various patients. These personal touches will improve happiness, confidence and there will be a sense of independence.

Pets
Many individuals that live in their own home have pets. Pets are important to comfort and provide companionship to individuals. Within a home care setting while providing care, this is not limited and care and support is provided in the comfort of individuals own home.

Affordability
Compared to residential care, home care services are much more affordable and flexible, you may only require care for a few hours or a few times a week. A full-time carer is much more expensive, compared to providing care for a few hours or a few times a week.

Family and friends
Within a home care environment, you are not restricted to spend quality time with your loved ones, including family and friends. There are no time restrictions for friends and family, which are likely to be in care homes.

Kabriya is one of our star complex care workers, who has been providing care for over 10 years. She started her journey as a Domiciliary carer in Wolverhampton and through training and development at Secure Healthcare has progressed her career to become a complex carer. Below in summary Kabriya will be outlining the day in the life of a carer.

By working as a complex carer, within a homecare environment, every day is different and it is more than just a job. You have to be passionate about providing healthcare, you need to be a hard willing worker. For me it is about building strong relationships with the service users and feeling part of a new family. I strive to make a real positive difference to our service users lives, every single day.

Being a complex carer, requires a strong character, you have to remain professional and positive, even though you may be experiencing personal issues. This is the life of a carer.

You may be required to provide care and support during the day or nights. While providing homecare for an individual there will be day to day responsibilities such as supporting service users with baths and showers, dressing, assisting with food, medications, housework movement around the house and much more. There are new challenges that can arise while providing care and support and it is important
that you handle this in a calm and safe manner.

Throughout my job I have to assess the needs of our service users to ensure tailored quality personal home care is provided.

Listening to people is important, it is vital that I communicate with service users, family members of those that I am providing care for and also with healthcare professionals to ensure that quality care and support is provided.

With the Covid 19 pandemic, it is also important that I use appropriate PPE to protect myself and others from Covid 19. This is done by wearing gloves, aprons, using face masks and disinfecting surfaces when necessary.

It is important that you follow care plans devised, by collaboratively working with case managers to ensure that tailored care and support is provided. It is also important to document everything, so care plans can be adjusted.

I would say that individuals should be passionate about providing care, hardworking and need to have a strong character.

Working in the summer as a healthcare worker for a healthcare agency can be difficult because of the warm weather conditions. It is important that you stay cool and cool yourself down to prevent exhaustion.
Warm weather can cause health risks. It is vital that you identify the signs if someone is struggling in the warm weather and what you should do to protect yourself and service users from the heat.
There are various symptoms that individuals can experience in heat. These include:
* Heat stroke, which is life threatening illness in which the body temperature may be above (41 °C) within a short a short period of time.
* Heat cramps, muscle pains or spasms that occur during heavy exercise. Generally, you get these in your abdomen, arms and legs.
* Difficulty breathing and increased heart rate
* Dehydration, nausea or vomiting
* Difficulty sleeping, drowsiness, faintness and changes in behaviour
* Heat can affect the heart and respiratory system

Secure Healthcare’s tips to keep your body temperature down
Take regular showers and baths
We highly encourage you to take regular cool showers or baths. If you are providing home care for an individual, it may require you to assist an individual with a shower or bath. Even though it can be difficult during a warm period, it is important that patients regularly have a bath.

Drink regularly
While providing personal home care to an individual during the warm weather, one the most important things is to stay hydrated, particularly by drinking water and juice regularly. On average you are supposed to drink 2 litres of water a day, however during the warm weather we encourage you increase this intake. If you are providing care for an individual, you should monitor their daily fluid intake to ensure service users are hydrated.

Wear comfortable clothing
For our live-in carers, it is advised to wear clothing that is appropriate for warm weather conditions. This could be by wearing loose clothing which helps individuals feel comfortable. Here at Secure Healthcare Solutions, we provide our employees short sleeve tops and clothing appropriate for warm weather conditions. When providing care to patients it is important that they are dressed appropriately and feel comfortable, particularly during the warm weather.

Eat cold foods
During the warm weather, we encourage you to eat cold food, as opposed to hot food, eating food with high water content will also keep you hydrated, eating healthy foods such as fruits and salads contributes to a large amount of water to your diet.

Stay in the shade
When it is really hot, stay in the shade as much as possible to avoid heat stroke and heat exhaustion, it is recommended to stay in the shade as much as you can. Although sun is the best way to receive vitamin D, it is important to wear sunglasses and sun cream when outdoors to protect you from the sun.

Ventilated room
The room should be ventilated to ensure there is fresh air coming into the house. This is generally done by opening windows within the property. You could also use fans and air conditioning to ensure yourself or somebody you provide care for feel comfortable.

As a healthcare company, it is important that our staff and service users feel comfortable during the warm weather. Our staff have been professionally trained to deal with individuals in the warm weather.
