Disability Care

There is no place like home and Guardian Carers enables you to continue living the life you love in the home you love.

What should you look for in a disability carer for your loved one?

Finding a perfect disability carer for your loved one is stressful and time-consuming, using an agency like Guardian Carers we can take that from you and provide you with a disability carer at home that suits your requirements. Our experienced consultants will understand what your needs and requirements are and what you are looking for in your ideal carer to help us tailor your search. When we hire our experienced carers there are some important qualities we look for in all our carers. We believe some of the many aspects good carer should have is being respectful, patient, reliable and qualified.

Our carers must be respectful, you may find yourself not being able to do everything you used to be able to do and people may start to treat you in a patronising way, we ensure our carers will treat you with the respect you deserve at all times.

A good carer must also be patient, with disabilities it can be frustrating when everyday tasks take longer than usual. It is important that your carer is patient and calm without getting annoyed or flustered.

A carer should be reliable, as your age or condition progresses you may need to start relying on your carer for more important aspects such as taking you to doctor’s appointments or medication dispensing. Your carer must ensure every duty is completed and they are done properly and on time.

Being observant is a key aspect of what makes a good carer. You or your loved one may not notice certain symptoms such as decreased appetite, mood changes or increased difficulty concentrating on particular things. However, it is up to your disability carer at home to notice these things and act accordingly. Along with being observant, your carer must also be compassionate. With you or your loved one starting to deteriorate, it can be a very emotional and scary time, having a carer there to support you and be there to pick you up on your bad days is very important.
