TYPES OF HOME CARE WE PROVIDE IN BOTLEY

There are many things to consider when choosing home care for yourself or a loved one. You may need clarification on which type of care can best holistically meet all your needs. Oxford Aunts makes arranging care as simple as possible by offering two main options: round-the-clock, live-in care and flexible hourly care. Find out more about our home care services in Botley.

VISITING HOME CARE IN BOTLEY

If you are recovering from an illness and require assistance with activities such as light housekeeping, mobility support, or medication management, home care could be a suitable option for you. Our carers can visit your home in Botley for as little as one hour per day, three times a week, and the service is entirely flexible to your needs.

We not only provide support with healthcare tasks but also offer companionship care for when your loved ones have other responsibilities to attend to. This could involve encouraging your hobbies or going for a walk in Botley Park to get some exercise. Whatever your needs, there is an option suitable for you.

Our services include:

  • Flexible care, tailored to your needs
  • Personalised care tailored to your needs and wishes
  • Assistance with housework, personal care, nurse-led care, and mobility support
  • Experienced carers matched to your personality, interests, and values

LIVE-IN HOME CARE IN BOTLEY

Live-in care provides one-to-one support for individuals requiring round-the-clock assistance from our team of carers due to ageing or health limitations. A carer will reside within your home to offer continuous support for complex health conditions such as dementia, Parkinson’s, and multiple sclerosis.

24-hour care is increasingly becoming the preferred option as it allows individuals to remain in familiar surroundings and maintain regular contact with family members, preventing the need for relocation to a residential home.

Our live-in care service is fully managed and regulated, ensuring that our carers are employed and directly overseen by us. This enables you and your loved one to focus on each other, while we handle the responsibilities of paying, managing, and supervising the care service. Both you and your carer will receive unparalleled support from our regional care management teams, providing peace of mind for our clients and their families.

Our carers are fully trained to support individuals living with health conditions such as arthritis, mobility issues, frailty, or cancer. We will match you with a carer specifically trained to support the condition you are living with, empowering you to enjoy a better quality of life with improved health outcomes.

  • Full time support (24/7)
  • Personalised care tailored to your needs
  • Nurse-led care for complex health conditions
  • An experienced carer with the right skills and experience

Care Manager

I started my career as a nurse having qualified as a Registered Nurse in 1987. For seven years I was a Practice Nurse at a GP practice before I started my family. When I returned to work, I decided to become a carer working for a domiciliary care agency providing hourly care to older people, where I progressed my career and became a Care Manager. I joined Oxford Aunts in 2019 and whilst my previous care role gave me good experience, I am thrilled to be working for a provider that offers quality live-in care, that truly enhances the lives of its clients.

As Care Manager at Oxford Aunts, I am responsible for ensuring our clients and their families have a dedicated point of contact who truly understands their requirements and can support their service. I have a deep understanding of our carers, not just in terms of their skills and experience, but their personalities and values. This means I can effectively match our carers with clients to ensure, not just their care needs are met but that the carer is aligned to how the client wishes to live their life. I work closely with our Care Assessor which means our clients have a highly personalised care plan that accurately reflect their needs. As part of our multidisciplinary approach to care I work closely with other healthcare professionals, including district nurses, physiotherapist and occupational therapists to ensure a holistic approach to care delivery.

Care Assessor

I am originally from New Zealand, where I started my career in a hospital setting where I was a Senior Care Assistant in a Specialist Dementia Care Unit. I decided to come to the UK to develop my career further in care, whilst spending time with my grandparents.

I joined Oxford Aunts in November 2015 as a live-in carer. Having researched a number of live-in care providers to potentially work for, Oxford Aunts was the stand- out choice given its reputation for providing high-quality care in Oxfordshire. I have been supported by the team in my role and afforded an opportunity to develop my career and I am now a Care Assessor. I feel privileged to support people to live safely and happily in the comfort of their own home, with all the benefits that brings. I am proud to be part of the Oxford Aunts team, who have the welfare of their clients at heart.

As a Care Assessor at Oxford Aunts, I am responsible for ensuring our clients can live well in their own homes with care and support from our live-in carer, whilst providing both the client, their families and our carers any support they may need. From the initial assessment of a client’s needs to the on-going review of our service, I provide high levels of support to ensure the standards of care Oxford Aunts are renowned for.

I have an NZQA National Certificate in the Support of the Older Person.

COMPASSIONATE AND FULLY-TRAINED CARERS IN BOTLEY

We are dedicated to providing trustworthy care in the comfort of your own home. This is achieved through a rigorous recruitment process, where all our carers undergo careful selection to ensure they meet our criteria. Statistics indicate that only 2% of applicants successfully pass this stage, demonstrating our commitment to selecting the very best candidates to deliver care in your home.

Upon successful selection, our carers participate in our industry-leading induction training, comprising a comprehensive five-day programme covering essential aspects of care. This includes but is not limited to, training in moving and handling, dementia care, end-of-life care, and complex care tasks. While our carers may have previous professional experience, attendance of our training is compulsory. Additionally, we offer annual refresher training and ongoing development opportunities to enhance performance.

We pair our clients with a local carer who possesses the necessary skills, experience, and shares similar backgrounds, interests, and values. We believe this selective matching process leads to an enhanced care experience and improved client health outcomes.
