How do I arrange a care service with Essex Home Care?
Essex Home Care and make an appointment for us to visit you for a chat about how Essex Home Care can work for you. We are happy to visit you at home to discuss ways we can help and then, once you have decided, you simply leave the rest to us!
What if I don't like my care package or want to make changes?
Our experience tells us that people's care needs very often change. We therefore understand that care may need reviewing from time to time. This is why we carry out reviews on a regular basis and why we are pleased to hear from members of the immediate family about effective methods for delivering the care service for their relative.
Is there anything that my care worker is not able to do?
Once we have established exactly what you want on each visit, we will work to that list. We are not able to give injections or change sterile dressings. Also, we cannot carry out tasks which are likely to cause risk to either the person we provide care to or to the Essex Home Care worker. Tasks will be agreed with you in advance. Any changes to the plan can be discussed with your local Essex Home Care team.
Will I have the same care worker each day?
This depends on how many care visits you have each week. We very rarely have just one care worker assigned to a particular customer. This allows for periods of time where your care worker may be away on holiday, however we do try to keep the number of your care workers to an absolute minimum.
