The ability to stay at home and maintain independence is important to many people. At South Coast Home Care, we support individuals to continue living at home when they would struggle on their own, by providing hourly care. This care is delivered in various forms, and is always suited to the specific needs of the service user. A member of our fantastic care team will visit you in your home, up to four times a day, and at times which suit you.

We provide hourly care on a long term, contracted basis. This allows service users to get to know our friendly team, which helps them to relax and feel confident with the care that they are receiving. Our staff are outstandingly compassionate, and committed to upholding care standards as outlined by the Care Quality Commission. This includes providing our service users with the information to make an informed choice, as well as an awareness of an individual’s right to decline care. Our care team are there to support individuals through their daily lives, and empower them to live independently.

This service is person centred and is tailored to your individual needs, and will follow a care plan advised by our care specialist. We understand that these needs may change over time, so our care team work hard to ensure that you are receiving the support that you need. Hourly care is a brilliant way for you to maintain independence in your own home, and to be supported with dignity.

This care may include:

  • Assistance to dress.
  • Assistance into bed.
  • Prompting medications.
  • Assistance with personal care, washing, and personal hygiene.
  • Help with domestic tasks such as laundry, washing up, and hovering.
  • Assistance with meals.

If you think that you, or someone you care for, may benefit from our hourly care service, we offer a free, no obligation conversation with our own care specialist. The care specialist is on hand to assess the unique circumstances of every individual initially, and monitor any changes throughout their care. This includes performing risk assessments, which ensure that care can be delivered to you safely and effectively in your home. Our team are then able to work according to the care specialist’s recommendations, and carry out a bespoke care plan, which is appropriate for each individual’s needs. By communicating with the individual throughout care about their changing needs and preferences, our carers are able to deliver a person-centred approach. Our care team will always uphold the rights, dignity, and wishes of everyone in our care.
