Age UK has recently revisited the issue of loneliness of many elderly people, but it may be surprising to discover that it doesn’t only affect those living alone.
Moving out of your own home, away from friends and neighbours, away from the area you know, into a residential home often seems to be the answer to the care an elderly relative needs.
But many find that even among others in the same position, they are lonely.
So what is the answer?
Well, it’s not available to everyone, we accept that, as the ability to fund care does become an issue. However, when this is not the case, the option of employing a carer and staying in your own home can become the perfect solution.
Such a carer can be full-time, full-time residential, or on a daily visit basis, the real issue is finding the right person.
That is where we come in. At The Graham Agency we have close to 30 years experience of recruiting a complete range of domestic, household and caring staff.
We pride ourselves on taking the utmost care to ensure that the chosen candidate not only has the necessary skills and experience, but the right personality.
When you, or an elderly relative have to consider care options, talk to us first.
