Care at home
Peoples Care provides a wide range of services and assistance in both the short and long term. Between living in a residential care centre and being cared for in your own home, you may prefer the second option, because living in your own home in familiar surroundings and around your loved and dear ones is sweeter, more comfortable and reassuring. ‘Home, sweet home’ is the preferred location for many people to receive care. In this arrangement instead of you going to care, care will come to you, ensuring your independence, dignity and confidence.
In our own homes you have a strong sense of belonging and emotional attachment. In the vicinity of the home, many things and events are part of our cherished memory and history that you love to preserve and be excited about and We have independence and more control over our lives and lifestyle that you love and worked hard to attain. In the free, non-limiting environment of your own home we are able to maintain the highest level of activity. Such an environment can bring about enthusiasm and confidence in the future. Living in ones own home gives a flexibility that is desirable and beneficial, giving one the ability to adapt over time to changing preferences, needs and circumstances.
For all these and other advantages, getting care in one’s own home in familiar environment is the ideal choice for many service users.

Before coming to care, perhaps we all had vibrant lifestyles in our own ways: we socialised with friends, neighbours, work colleagues and went to clubs and places of other and attended events such as celebrating the Queen’s birthday, international Womens Day etc. In other words we had a social network and took an active part in social activities. One of the most thought-out policies of PEOPLES CARE LTD is the maintenance of Service Users’ social network and social activities. The Service User’s Care Plan includes a facility for recording life history, social networks and contacts, and preferences for activities and hobbies, in order that users have access to those networks and activities which are appropriate and desired. This will help the service user maintain some of that vibrant social lifestyle, if not fully but to some extent, so that they do not feel isolated from their natural past life and pushed into a routine, boring and colourless lifestyle.
We will help them make the most of those contacts and networks. This will one hopes most likely give the user a sense of being himself/herself, though in a limited manner because of age or a medical/health condition. It will help to uphold the morale of service users and thus help them to live with dignity.
Urgent or Emergency Care at Home
Sometimes circumstances change suddenly and you need care in the home urgently.
A spouse might have been taken ill or suddenly passed away.
A family member acting as a carer might have an emergency to deal with that means they cannot be available.

We recognise that each of these urgent care requirements can be unique. Please talk us to discuss how we can help.
