OUR APPROACH

Many of our current clients and their families initially sought guidance and advice from us because they were trying to deal with the practical and emotional impact of terminal or chronic illness, unexpected care needs brought on by accidents or life-long conditions.

We have many years of experience providing complex care for people with conditions such as dementia, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s, stroke recovery, acquired brain injuries, physical and learning disability and mental health problems. One of our guiding principles is to completely understand the individual’s experience of a condition and to create a care and support plan around this.

We understand that by providing specialist person-centred dementia care the quality of life for you and your family and friends can be significantly enhanced. Each plan of care is bespoke and tailored to your unique requirements and we undertake reviews of your care plan as and when your needs change. All of our care & support workers complete the nationally recognised ‘Common Induction Standards’ , in addition to this Agincare has a range of training programmes for specific conditions:-

Care Assessment

One of our team of friendly Customer Relations Advisors will give you a guide price, offer funding advice and describe in detail the potential of our service. If you decide you want to find out more, the next step is to book a no obligation FREE assessment. One of our team of Care Assessors will visit you at home and complete a comprehensive assessment. This will allow us to get to know you, your life and home and understand exactly what care and support you require. Our Care Assessors are professionally qualified experts in the field, helpful and friendly. We can then provide you with an exact price – no obligation.

Personalised care plans

If you decide that you want us to provide you with a service, that’s great and welcome to the Agincare family! The next step is to finalise the start date and to choose a Care Worker or Personal Assistant. Once you have selected the person whom you feel matches your requirements, we will schedule them for your start date. The Care Assessor who visited you at home will have completed a comprehensive care and support plan for you to agree. They will also be there on the first day of your service to support you and the worker to get to know each other and to help ensure that everything is in place to start your new life.

Our Care workers

We reject many more candidates than we recruit. Agincare looks for that special blend of compassion, common sense, reliability, good humour and a great work ethic. We provide comprehensive training, support and welfare to all of our staff because we view them as our most valuable asset, to be nurtured and continually developed. Always professional, they will strike the right balance between being supportive, promoting independence and offering reassurance. Our office team and community based managers will be there for you when you need them. They will monitor and coordinate your service and become the familiar voice and face of Agincare to you and your family.

Admiral Nurse - specialist dementia nursing

Agincare’s own Admiral Nurse is a specialist dementia nurse who gives expert practical, clinical and emotional support to families living with dementia to help them cope.

Dementia UK is a national charity which works in partnership with the NHS, local authorities and other organisations to promote and develop Admiral Nursing and to support the practice of Admiral Nurses. Jo Palmer is Consultant Admiral Nurse at Agincare and provides additional support to family carers, care workers and staff and the people receiving a service who are living with dementia.

The Consultant Admiral Nurse role is the first of its kind in the country and Admiral Nursing itself is new to the private care industry as most Admiral Nurses are employed by the NHS or by charitable organisations.

Reablement

Reablement for any condition which requires time for recovery. Before you go into Hospital arrange a reablement care plan to ensure a timely discharge from Hospital. We are also able to offer a Rapid Response service for emergency situations. All of our packages of care are based solely on the individual assessment of the needs of the client and start from £795 per week with an average cost of £875 per week.

    Steve has had the most impact on grandad. He had a way of bringing him out of himself that I haven't seen in the years since my grandma passed! I cannot praise your staff of carers enough. They were so above and beyond what I thought a carer would be so please, please accept, from the bottom of my heart, my highest gratitude for the care and love that was shown to my grandfather in the 2 short weeks you have cared for him. Thank you so much for your care and thoughtfulness.

    Just to respond on feedback about the way Ferenc has been supporting the family. Before M died, he attended her in hospital, helping ensure the oxygen mask didn’t come off, including staying at her bedside overnight on one occasion. Last week, following M's passing , Ferenc was discretely around for my father - performing the ususal duties (meals, support getting in/dressed, medicines, dealing with visitors etc) but doing so in a way which didn't impinge on us as a family. Wanted to have conversations about M or just to have a quiet time with K. He judges very skilfully how much to be around and how much to leave us to our own devices.

    I should also like to take the opportunity to pass on the family's thanks for the work Neta is doing - we think she is really good and conscientious.
