Quality care training - Every carer completes an initial induction course delivered by our own accredited trainer.  This covers the new common induction standards including food hygiene, health and safety, manual handling, and emergency first aid.  Carers also undertake additional training in specific conditions appropriate to the client's needs.  Mayfair care services actively encourage and support our staff to obtain their Diploma in Health and Social Care. Improved Quality of Life With the support of Domiciliary and live in care, many people feel less lonely and vulnerable.  In turn this often promotes an improvement in both the physical and the mental wellbeing of the individual.  Our carers can take the individual(s) on outings or to appointments, enabling them to enjoy more variety in their lives. 24/7 Peace of Mind The family has peace of mind knowing that their loved one is being supported and cared for in their own homes.  Cost Effective Alternative to Residential Care Homes People value their independence privacy and freedom of choice; this is why many people prefer to stay in the familiar surroundings of their own home. This can be achieved at a similar cost to residential or nursing care homes in Essex.  In summary domiciliary and live in care offers a personalised approach to maintaining your independence and safety in the surroundings of your choice. Local community knowledge As a local and family run business we have a unique knowledge of the community and provide care locally within 60 minutes of our office, this allows us to regularly visit our clients and carers to provide support and monitor standards.  We have close working  relationships with the local health and social care professionals such as GPs, district nurses, occupational therapist, Pharmacists, NHS and social services. Support in your own home - Independent Living  Domiciliary and live in care assists you or your loved one to stay in the comfort of your own home and receive personalised one-to- one care. There is no stressful upheaval and no unnecessary changes have to be made. Professional and Personal Care Service  Each individual is provided with a personalised support plan based on the information gathered during an initial needs assessment.  This plan sets out the daily activities, routine and preferences to be followed by the carer.  The support plan is flexible and regular changes can be made. Medication is recorded on a medication chart and must be signed for by the carer each time medication is prompted or administered. Professional one-to-one Care at Home Unlike a residential care home where many individuals have to be considered, Domiciliary and live in care is a one to one personal service that is tailored to the needs of the individual.  The carer(s) support the individuals in a way which is specific to the needs of each person.  The service we offer is flexible and changes can be made if circumstances require.
