There comes a time in everyone’s life when they are no longer able to care for themselves and easily perform normal, everyday tasks. This is often the result of an incapacity of some kind and makes it necessary to seek out a greater level of care. If your loved one has had a bad fall or suffered an illness like pneumonia, or a health incident such as a stroke or heart attack, you know that they will need increased and more acute care while they get better. This type of care is called frail care and is the best solution for someone who is this incapacitated. Frail care ensures that your loved one has acute hospital care and round the clock assistance while they recuperate.
Once your loved one has recovered well enough they can return to their normal lives and previous levels of care. For many, a visit to frail care might be a relatively brief visit, but for others, it marks the start of a new phase in their lives. Long-term frail care provides them with a safe environment and a better quality of life.
The Benefits of Frail Care
A person that has trouble moving around on their own or no longer has the mental capacity to look after themselves anymore, will be well looked after in a frail care unit. All their needs are taken care of with three meals a day, their laundry and housekeeping done for them as well as round the clock care from professional carers. The new Livewell Estates dedicated Frail Care ward is in close proximity to the hospital and ensures loved ones have 24/7 nursing and carers. This specialised frail care services includes all meals and laundry/housekeeping. The option for transport and petcare is also available to those who need it.
