To specifically cater to the individual service users need each service user is included in the decision making process in order to create a personalised approach to satisfying their needs and in order for them to remain in their home.
As an individual increasingly ages carrying out tasks as they did once before may prove to be difficult. Having domiciliary care offers an alternative to having been put in a care home. Our carers are trained and skilled in supporting elderly clients with their daily living requirements; be it personal support or even companionship etc.
Dementia involves an individual that can express issues with difficulties making decisions or problem solving and dementia is a result of Alzheimer’s disease or even due to several strokes having occurred.
Dementia clients include both clients with short term and long term memory problems/ loss. Our carers are fully trained to assist clients with dementia and have the skills to support in the daily activities that they may struggle with.
Physical disabilities involve an individual that has a limitation to carrying out physical movements. This includes; chair/ bed bound (mobility issues) and other forms of impairments can include that of blindness or partial blindness.
Lalis caters to individuals who suffer from a physical disability and staff are trained thoroughly in this too. This aspect focuses on transfers; so moving an individual from one place to another so moving and handling.
Physical disabilities can be in the short term which is general rehabilitation that covers 6 weeks and there is the long term/ permanent disability and our services covers both areas.
Learning disabilities involves an individual that has a limitation in terms of understanding information and difficulties in communicating with others.
So in light of the information above it may prove difficult for an individual to live independently and so require the support of another to remain at home.
Our carers are trained to assist those with learning disabilities and have gained the skills needed to interact and support current and potential service users.
End of Life Care
End of life care involves assisting individuals and their family members at the end stages of a service user’s life; so the last months or year(s) of an individual’s life.
With regards to the details above it is fundamental for an indvidual to have the assistance to live as well as possible and with dignity up until their death.
This is what Lalis strives to do as we understand that this is a difficult and emotional process and we are here to make the process more comfortable. Our carers are fully equipped and trained to support terminally ill clients and assist family members to carry out daily living tasks.
