For a loved one it can be difficult to decide whether to put your loved ones in care, however sometimes you have to make a difficult decision, as they are unable to look after themselves.

With family members having busy lifestyles, it can be difficult to provide the best care and support to your loved ones. The decision of deciding the right care can be stressful and overwhelming, and thinking about somebody else looking after your loved ones. There is a lot of options and personalised care that you can take out, and there is an option of live-in care and various residential homes.

As part of the decision-making process, friends and family assess the best care options and work closely with our case managers to choose the most appropriate care options. With the decision-making process, we are here to support you all the way to make the most appropriate choice.

Residential care and live-in care both provide great support and care for those that require it. Both options provide round-the-clock care to ensure your loved ones get the care and support they need across all settings.

There is no wrong choice. Whether you want your loved ones to receive care and support within a residential home or personal home care, depending on your personal commitments. We are here to support you and your loved ones to ensure the best care and support is provided.

What a residential home offers?
By choosing a residential care home, your loved one is entitled to receive long term, round the clock care. Living in a secure and monitored residential care home, ensures your loved ones are in a safe environment at all times.

Benefits of residential care
Living in a residential care home ensures that you receive a well-balanced nutritious diet, structured daily routines, be part of house keeping services and have opportunities to socialise with other residents and visitors are some of the main benefits of residential care.

Possible disadvantages of residential care homes
It can be difficult for individuals to adapt within a residential home setting, as your loved ones requiring care are likely to be use to familiar surroundings and around loved ones most of the time, which is not limited at care at home. Within a residential home, pets are not allowed and can be an important part of ensuring companionship.

Advantages of Live-in care
One of the major advantages of live-in care and home care is that care and support provided to the service users is tailored to ensure the best care and support has been provided. When care is provided in a home care setting, healthcare staff are able to develop healthier relationships. There are no restrictions to spend time with your loved ones, be outdoors and you can be around your pets which is great for companionship.

Although there are many benefits of live-in care, the only drawback of home care is that the home may need to be fitted with specialist equipment and you would need a spacious room to facilitate this.

The NHS faces one of the greatest challenges of delayed discharge of patients as there is no or insufficient home support to meet the daily essential needs when patients are ready to leave the hospital, resulting in patients remaining in the care of the NHS. This results to hospital beds being occupied, which becomes very costly for the NHS, also it restricts treatments for those that are more likely to need it. Healthy patients can also contract illnesses in hospitals such as flu or urinary tract infections. Delayed discharge has resulted in a difficult cycle which hospitals are finding difficult to overcome, despite all the hard work of the hospital staff and adult social services within the local authorities.

Secure healthcare is here to offer compassionate and efficient discharge services across the UK. We ensure that we take care of the patients’ discharge when the healthcare professionals at the hospital have approved for the patient to be discharged. We make sure that the patient returns safely within their home or care home and ensure they receive the support and care required after they leave the hospital.

What is Secure Healthcare Solutions Fast Track Discharge Services?

Palliative care is also sometimes called end-of-life care. It is specialised care for those who have a terminal or serious illness. It is designed to make the end of their life as comfortable as possible. Terminal illnesses can include cancer, dementia or motor neurone disease and means an illness that cannot be cured. When you reach the end stages of a condition such as listed above, it is important to manage pain and any other distressing symptoms. Each year approximately 40 million people are in need of palliative care. Looking for palliative care in your area? Or to find out more about what palliative care is? We have outlined it below…

When does palliative care begin?

The stage at which palliative care begins can differ depending on the person and the individual case. Some people can have palliative care for months, others weeks, days or even just for the last few hours of their lives. The stage that you are considered reaching your “end of life” is if you are likely to not live past the next twelve months.

As well as those with a terminal illness, it can also apply to those who are frail with a coexisting condition, have a condition where they are at risk of dying suddenly or have a life-threatening condition that has been caused by something such as a stroke or an accident.

How can a palliative care worker help?

Emotional support

Knowing that you are coming to the end of your life can be an extremely distressing thing to go through and to come to terms with. This is why emotional support is so important. You will likely feel emotions such as shock, fear, anger, resentment, helplessness, anxiety and sadness. You might also feel alone, even if you have a strong support network. Over time you will likely feel a bit better as you come to terms with your diagnosis, but feelings might come back towards the very end of life. This is completely normal and is nothing to be ashamed of. Your palliative care team is here to help you with these feelings and will be here to talk to you, understanding how you are feeling and seeing if there is anything they can do to make you feel better. As well as talking they can look at photos, do mindfulness activities and read you a book to try and take your mind off of your thoughts for a while. They can also get in touch with a psychologist if they feel this would help to benefit you.

Pain management

Pain management is one of the most important aspects of end of life care. While you may no longer be able to receive treatment such as chemotherapy, this doesn’t mean you should be in any pain. Not everyone who is reaching the end of their life is in pain. However, if you are, your doctor or nurse will find out when your pain started, where it is and if it is affecting you in ways such as stopping you from sleeping or eating. They will aim to prescribe you medicines that are weaker at first such as paracetamol or ibuprofen. They will then move to mild opioids such as codeine and then stronger opioids such as morphine. Medics prefer to not prescribe the latter at the earlier stages. It can often make you feel drowsy or not quite with it so wait until it is really needed.

Support for your family

If you are a family member who is also a carer for someone who is reaching the end of life, it can be tough on you. This is why our palliative care staff are here to help. We can help to spread the load and allow you some relief. It can be very intense caring for a loved one round the clock so we are here to help with that. We can also answer any questions you might have or give you advice if you need it.

Help managing your symptoms

As well as helping you manage any pain that you might be experiencing, we will also assist with other symptoms you might have. If you are bed-bound we can help you to get washed and dressed. We can also change your catheter or stoma bag if you need. We can help with symptoms such as constipation or nausea. And will also liaise with your wider health team for any help you need managing your symptoms.

Here at Secure Healthcare Solutions, we know how stressful and hard it is when you or a loved one are reaching the end of your life. We are here to help ease the stress and make it as pain-free as possible. If you are looking for palliative care, please get in touch with us today. If you are looking for a career in palliative care or for palliative care jobs, we have a range of healthcare job roles here.

As you get older you tend to not move around so much and your joints and muscles can weaken. Elderly people can suffer from poorer eyesight, pain when you move, and reduced coordination – all of which might be the reason that you can no longer get around as you once did. This is why it is important to partake in physiotherapy to help battle this. Physiotherapy is often thought of as something to keep athletes in shape, but the reality is that it can help anybody at any time.

It is essentially the process of improving the movement and function of your body and anyone can benefit from it. When setting up a care plan for yourself or a loved one, it is a good idea to speak to the carer about physiotherapy options and how this can be integrated with the plan at hand. Home carers can work with or liaise with physiotherapists to ensure you get the care that you need. Here are some top benefits of including physiotherapy in care plans for the elderly.

Benefits of Including Physiotherapy in Care Plans For The Elderly

What will a physiotherapist do?

– Find out about any falls at home or concerns you might have
Decide the best approach to tackle this
Work on strength and balance
– Show the patient how to do some exercises on their own to strengthen muscles at any time

How can physiotherapy in care plans for the elderly help?

It can improve mobility

When deciding care plans for the elderly, the aim needs to be on making their life as comfortable and independent as can be. By doing physiotherapy it improves your mobility and can enable you to walk around the house better, doing more things on your own.

It is a safe way to exercise

 When you get older you might not be able to just pop out for a game of tennis or a job as and when you feel like it. Yet that doesn’t mean you don’t want to do some exercise – particularly if you used to be into fitness. Physiotherapy is a safe and risk-free way of getting a bit of exercise into a daily routine. You will be assigned small exercises that are within your capabilities and will be overseen by a carer or physiotherapist.

It can reduce the chances of a fall 

A fall is a scary thing for both the person involved and their loved ones. One in three people over 65 have a fall each year and 10-25% suffer a serious injury from this. By partaking in physiotherapy and improving strength and balance, this helps to reduce the chances of a fall and therefore be much safer around the home.

It can aid with recovery 

Home care plans for the elderly aid with recovery as soon as possible. If you have just returned from the hospital due to injury or something such as a stroke, physiotherapy can help you regain strength and mobility. Your physiotherapist will put you on a plan tailored to your needs. If you are coming out of the hospital and won’t be able to do things at home like you normally would, we can provide emergency care at home to help.

These are just a few things that a physiotherapist will do to help with home care plans for the elderly.

Is it essential that you have a diet that has your daily protein intake to fuel your energy and to help you repair your body cells and make new ones? For adults it is recommended to take an average of 0.8g of protein per kilogram body weight per day, for example, if you weigh 75kg, you would need 60grams of protein per day. If you work out having 20-30grams of extra protein after workout out is important, to repair your muscles.

Some high protein foods per (100g) include: Chicken breast (28g), Salmon (20g), Cheese (25g), Red lentils (7.6g), Chickpeas (8.4g), Oatmeal (11.2g), Almonds (21.1g)

Hydrate your body

Ensure that your drink enough water throughout the day to make sure you are hydrated. Hot drinks often tend to cause dehydration, therefore it is important that you drink water throughout the day. In the UK it is recommended that adults have 1600ml of fluid (women) and 2000ml of fluid (men), approximately 6-8 glasses a day. For those that do not drink enough, you will feel dehydrated, you will become thirsty, urine will become darker in colour, and will notice a stronger smell, you may also experience headaches, feeling dizzy and tired, and finding it difficult to concentrate.

Vitamin D is one of the most important vitamins required throughout the year for the human body to feel energized throughout the year. This vitamin relies on a large amount of exposure to sunlight and is known as the sunshine vitamin. The limited sunshine in the UK results in a lot of the UK being deficient in vitamin D, particularly during the winter months, also the BAME community is at increased risk of lower levels of vitamin D, as darker skin absorbs far less vitamin D than lighter skin.

The main factors likely to increase being affected by Vitamin D deficiency include:

Living in a country where there is a limited amount of sun exposure all year round
Having darker skin, less likely to absorb vitamin D
Spending a lot of time indoors
Lacking a diet rich in vitamin D foods
Being Obese
Elderly

Approximately 1 in 5 people have low vitamin D in the UK. There have been several studies reported that those who lack vitamin D are more likely to experience more severe Covid 19 symptoms. Studies carried out indicate that individuals lacking vitamin D are more likely to die with Covid 19. It is particularly important for individuals low in Vitamin D to take vitamin supplements and eat foods rich in vitamin D.

Symptoms of low Vitamin D

Bone and muscle pain
Fatigue and tiredness
Hair Loss
Reoccurring bacterial and viral infections
Feeling depressed and mood changes

Vitamin D

What to do if you feel you have Vitamin D deficiency?

If you are experiencing the symptoms mentioned above and you feel you have a vitamin D deficiency, we strongly encourage you to speak with your doctor to arrange a blood test to check your vitamin D levels.

The NHS recommends adults take a vitamin supplement throughout the year. The recommended dosage is 400 IU (10ug per day), as it not possible to achieve sufficient levels of vitamin D through a diet alone. If your vitamin D level is very low, your doctor is likely to write you a stronger dose of vitamin D.

Fair-skinned people should spend 15-20 minutes per day in the sun, particularly in the spring and summer, to avoid vitamin D deficiency all year, during the winter period vitamin D will from coming from your diet and vitamin D supplements.

Darker-skinned people’s exposure to sunlight should be 20-40 minutes due to being unable to absorb sunlight as effectively as lighter skin colors.
Food which contains vitamin D includes:

Oily fish such as salmon, sardines, mackerel, and trout

Red meat
Cod liver oil
Orange Juice
Egg Yolks
Fortified cereals, dairy, and milk
Mushrooms

If you are struggling to do the things you usually do at home, then it could be that you need home care services to come and help you out. Whether this is getting out of bed, cooking or cleaning, you might find that you are having trouble. Luckily our home care services are on hand to help with this. If you find yourself asking the question of “Do I need a home carer?” Then the chances are that you probably do. The good thing about a home carer is that they aren’t a one size fits all package. They will come and speak to you about your individual needs and can help out with as much or as little as you require. Here are some ways that a home carer can help you to put your mind at rest if you are wondering how much you need one.

If you can no longer do simple household tasks

There are many reasons that you might no longer be able to do simple households tasks like you used to. It could be that you are not very well or just that you have become frailer with age. No matter the reason, a home carer can come and aid you with everything from light cleaning to preparing your meals, doing your shopping and picking up your prescriptions from the pharmacy. They are on hand to help with anything you might need and can come up with a plan that is personally tailored to you and your requirements. Before starting, they will discuss with you what you might require and come up with a plan. This can then be tweaked as and when is necessary.

If you have recently come back from the hospital 

A home carer can help you if you have recently been to the hospital and are bed-bound. It might be that you went in for surgery or for an illness and that you are well enough to be discharged, but still not quite back to your old self. A carer can come and continue looking after you at home, giving you both mental and physical support to aid with your recovery. They can also help with things such as changing catheter bags and picking up your prescriptions and sorting your medicine.

If you are suffering from an illness or condition that you require assistance to manage

If you have a condition or get diagnosed with something such as dementia or cancer, it could be that you need care at home to help with this. Home carers are well trained in a myriad of conditions. They can help you with managing these while also retaining independence and being able to stay in your own home. Home carers can pick up and administer your medication, do tasks around the home and liaise with your doctor to ensure that you are getting the care you need.

If your family are often worried about you or care for you themselves and are finding it too much

If your family has been caring for you for a while, it might reach a point where this is no longer feasible. This could be because they are finding it too intense. Or because they have work or other family commitments that they need to try and attend to as well. If this is the case, a home carer can help to take that responsibility off their hands. This leaves them to visit you in a friendly capacity rather than just to take care of you. Being a carer can be intense for a family member and therefore home carers are a good idea to take this stress away and offer some reprieve. This can be on a permanent or temporary basis. For example, you might only need a carer while your family member is on holiday. 

These are just a few reasons that might show that you need a home carer. If you are looking for a home carer near you or want some domiciliary care assistance, please get in touch with us today. We have a range of care at home options to suit your needs.

If you are looking for a home care assistant job, please check out the many vacancies we have. We offer home care services in a variety of locations. 

Respite care is there to help family members or caregivers when they need a break from the demands of looking after a sick or disabled family member. Whether you are looking for respite care in your own home or at a day-care centre, respite can be organised in advance or in an emergency should you really need it. The whole idea of respite is to reduce the burden you have on caregiving and to allow you a much-needed break to rest up, clear your mind before going again.

Why Is Respite So Important     

You should never feel guilty when considering respite care. Caring for another person is a big job and often has an effect on your own health, social life as well as your home life. By taking a necessary break you will not only benefit from resting an coming back stronger but also reduce the stress and burden that you take on.

Below are three reasons respite care is vital: 

It allows you to rest

As mentioned above, caring for another person is very full-on and requires your attention 24/7. This can be draining and cause you to burn out. And let’s face it, what sort of help will you be if you are feeling run down and exhausted? Respite care is there to give you a much-needed break. You can relax knowing that your loved one is being looked after by a professional. It allows you to have a period of time where you can focus on yourself and your wellbeing. You can spend time with your loved ones, meet up with friends and forget about your day to day stresses at home. Just like at work a break is what you need to regain your motivation. It will allow you to refocus and be on top of your game on your return. 

Maintain Or Rekindle Your Hobbies And Interests

In not uncommon to hear from caregivers that they have stopped doing what they enjoy in life to look after a loved one. Respite can be a great opportunity to go out there and do the things you enjoy. Even if it’s for a few days, it can be really nice to pick up a racket and place tennis again or go to the beach and read your favourite book. As important as caregiving is, you should never forget how important your own hobbies and interests are.

Go on Holiday 

Forgetting about your day to day worries of caring is important for your mental health. The best way to relax is to go away for a week. You will  take a break from your duties as a caregiver. Respite allows you to get away and spend time with your family on a holiday. You will rest up and come back ready to take on your duties again but with additional motivation from your break. 

Respite can be good for the person you are caring for

By getting respite care, it doesn’t only benefit you. Respite can be beneficial for the person your caring for too. They will receive professional help and it can be a change of scenery for them. They will get the undivided attention of a new person with who they can interact and get to know. This can be a much-needed break for both of you, allowing you to rest up ready for your return.

There are many reasons that respite care can be extremely beneficial. If you are looking for respite care in your area, please get in touch today as we would love to help you. We have Respite Care in West Midlands, Wolverhampton and the surrounding areas that we can assist with.
