Are you thinking about arranging care for yourself or a friend? After going through treatment for chemotherapy or another operation, you may find that tasks start to get more challenging due to a decrease in energy levels.
Our North London home care team are able to provide a flexible service offering as little as one hour through to full-time support to allow the client to rest. Rivendell delivers home care services in London & Hertfordshire, enabling our service users to live happy, independent lives in the comfort of their own home. Our services can be vital when you are recovering from an operation or other treatment.
How We Help
We understand some of the challenges of maturing, energy and mobility can make it difficult to shower and bathe without assistance. Our carers are trained to promote dignity when providing personal care. We can help with showering, bathing, bed baths, hair washing and changing continence pads.
We can prompt our clients to take medication and can monitor sleep, mood, continence and more. This may not be necessary but help is always available from our diligent and experienced carers.
We can help domestically, including cooking, cleaning, ironing and dusting. Our carers don’t just take over and do things in their way- they can help give back independence, tailoring your care to you.
When conducting the care assessment we can work with you to create a nutritious and delicious menu that caters to dietary requirements. Our carers can cook or can assist and help our clients with meals
To get us started, below are the 10 best foodstuffs to eat after surgery to promote healing.
- Fats (nuts, oils, fish)
- Dark Leafy Greens
- Meat or Other Alternatives
- Brightly coloured fruits
- Whole grains
- Fresh water
What makes us different?
Prior to carrying out care, we conduct an assessment where we find out about the client’s daily routine and medical history, to determine how we can help each individual best. We have a clear care plan that instructs us on how to deliver care in the safest way possible.
We have a digital system in place that allows our client’s family to view care notes after completed care visits. This means that real time notes are sent when care is delivered, so that you can be sure of the quality of the care being delivered.
We celebrate diversity and understand that everyone is different and will have different levels of requirements. Our recovery care team are trained and have practical experience in dealing with different needs – from intensive treatment to surgery. Each client will receive the highest level of care in the most respectful way – as if they were a member of our own family.
We want to make your life easier, adding meaning and sparkle to as many aspects of your day as possible. Our care workers think of themselves as companions rather than simply carers. They love to take part in hobbies in or out of the house and arrange social visits. So, whether you want to do some light exercise or go for a walk – just ask! They are there to help you in any way you need from setting up Skype calls with family and friends to arranging doctors’ appointments.
Rivendell Care is devoted to enhancing both the mental and physical wellbeing of our clients. We provide care that revolves around the requirements of the service user, offering a personalised service around your needs.
The staff at Rivendell care are dynamic, adaptable and great communicators. We have a highly skilled group of office staff who are friendly and on hand to help!
