Loveday at Home

Your choice, your place

Loveday at Home provides a Member with the same high levels of care at home that they would experience in a Loveday residence. We begin with a detailed assessment of the Member’s lifestyle, needs and interests, followed by insightful medical, practical and lifestyle recommendations. Flexibility is built in, as care at home can be a few hours a week or full-time, live-in and 24-hour care. The choice is yours.

At home with Loveday, Members can continue their daily routines and social connections. They are also encouraged to take part in activities and therapies which are effective and enjoyable.

All carers are specially trained by Loveday, dedicated to each Member and carefully monitored by our leadership team. In addition, regular communications with both families and Members helps ensure that support is always in tune with a Member’s individual needs and preferences.

Every Member at home can take part in our Extraordinary Days activities and therapies and visit any residence to take part in the Day Club. Specific lifestyle services are always available and we are always happy to cater for specific requests.

What is Home Care?

Home care for the elderly represents a dignified and compassionate solution. The care is tailored to meet the evolving needs of ageing individuals which is delivered within the comfort and familiarity of their own homes. 

This service highlights the value of personal independence, offering an array of customised support that ranges from basic assistance with daily living activities to comprehensive, skilled nursing care. Loveday’s care team are award-winning specialists in elderly and memory care. They take pride in delivering these services with respect for the individuality and preferences of each Member, ensuring that care plans are not only effective but also enhance the quality of life.

The essence of home care lies in its holistic approach, addressing not just the physical requirements of the elderly but also their social, emotional and mental well-being. Carers are meticulously selected to match the needs and personalities of their Members, ensuring a nurturing relationship that goes beyond mere assistance; the relationships becoming a source of companionship, comfort and reassurance.

Additionally, home care offers invaluable peace of mind to families, providing them with the assurance that their loved ones are receiving professional, empathetic care in the safest and most comforting environment that is possible within a non-professional environment. It represents a flexible and responsive care model, capable of adapting to the changing health and personal needs of the Member.

What are the key factors to consider when choosing between home care and residential care?

When faced with the decision between home care and residential care for a loved one, several key factors require careful consideration. While both options aim to provide high-quality care, each offers distinct advantages and considerations that must align with the unique needs and preferences of the individual. 

Assess the individual's current health status, mobility and cognitive abilities. Home care may be sufficient for those who require minimal assistance with activities of daily living and wish to remain in familiar surroundings. However, individuals with complex medical needs, cognitive impairments or mobility limitations may benefit from the 24/7 supervision and comprehensive support available in residential care settings.

Consider the safety of the home environment and whether modifications are needed to accommodate the individual's mobility limitations or medical equipment. Residential care facilities are designed with safety features and accessibility in mind, minimising the risk of accidents and ensuring round-the-clock assistance in emergencies.

Evaluate the individual's need for socialisation and companionship. While home care offers one-on-one attention from caregivers, residential care provides opportunities for social interaction with peers through organised activities, outings, and communal dining. This social engagement can mitigate feelings of loneliness and isolation, promoting emotional wellbeing.

Reflect on the impact of the living environment on the individual's quality of life. Residential care facilities often offer amenities such as landscaped gardens, recreational facilities, and onsite dining options, enhancing the overall experience. The structured routines and varied activities available in residential care can contribute to a sense of purpose and fulfilment for the individual.

Consider the ability of family members to provide ongoing support and supervision. While home care allows for family involvement in caregiving tasks and decision-making, it may also place a significant burden on family caregivers, especially if they have competing work or caregiving responsibilities. Residential care can alleviate this burden, allowing family members to focus on providing emotional support and maintaining meaningful connections with their loved one.

Compare the costs associated with home care versus residential care, taking into account factors such as caregiver wages, home modifications and ongoing expenses for supplies and equipment. While home care may initially appear more cost-effective, the long-term costs can escalate as the individual's needs change or increase. Residential care facilities often offer comprehensive services at a fixed monthly rate, providing greater predictability and financial stability.

Consider the proximity of healthcare facilities and specialists in relation to the chosen care option. Residential care facilities often have established relationships with healthcare providers, offering onsite medical services, therapy sessions, and coordination of care. In contrast, accessing healthcare services in a home care setting may require additional coordination and transportation arrangements.

By considering the individual's preferences, health status, social needs and financial considerations, families can make an informed decision on care that promotes the individual's well-being and enhances their quality of life.
