Care Shield Services aims to offer a comprehensive range of services, facilitating independent living within the home and minimising the risk of injury, illness, and hospital admissions. Our services are designed with flexibility in mind, and can be tailored to meet individual needs and requirements.
Illness, injury, or disability can sometimes make it difficult to carry out every day care tasks. Care Shield carers are highly trained to offer a comfortable, confidential, and discreet personal care service, offering assistance with daily activities such as dressing, bathing, toileting, eating, medicating, and more.
With a firm interest in the ethos of reablement, Care Shield carers are trained to provide support and assistance to facilitate safe, independent living within the home. Reablement plans encourage a secure hospital-to-home process and can greatly reduce the risk of falls, injuries, and hospital readmissions.
At Care Shield, we work with vulnerable adults and children with learning disabilities who need peace of mind that they have a reliable and predictable care plan in place. When possible, we aim to stick to the same scheduled team to create confidence, encourage communications, and provide expert support.
Care Shield are proud to work in supported living accommodations, offering assistance with a wide range of daily tasks, while encouraging and motivating individuals to learn safe techniques for independent living. We offer support in everything from getting ready for work, to housework and personal care.
Our prescription collection services are designed to ensure you never miss a dose, and that you adhere to your doctor’s medication plan to improve your health and wellbeing. We’ll collect your prescription from your local GP surgery on your behalf, and pick up your medication from your preferred pharmacy.
We understand that care needs differ between individuals, and that some people may require alternative forms of support in the home. That’s why we offer a comprehensive domestic services plan, helping you with day-to-day tasks at home, such as washing, vacuuming, polishing, ironing, and cleaning duties
If you find shopping to be difficult, painful, or uncomfortable, Care Shield can help. We can arrange to shop on your behalf and deliver your goods to the home for ease and convenience, or our carers can accompany you on a local shopping trip and support and assist you as you select your goods yourself.
Care Shield carers are specially trained in all aspects of personal budget management, helping you to make the most sensible financial choices, and ensure you’re spending or saving your money in the best way for you. We can help you plan for regular, weekly expenses including meals, travel, and leisure.
Our carers are happy to accompany you to doctor’s appointments, social events in the community, local shopping trips, or even just for a stroll around your neighbourhood. We’re there to provide complete peace of mind and ensure that you remain safe, happy, and healthy when you’re away from your home.
Sitting services, waking night services, and sleep-in services allow for our carers to provide necessary support throughout the night, including transfer into or out of bed, night time medications, and assistance to the toilet as needed. Carers remain awake during sitting and waking night services.
If your regular carer - a friend or family member, for example - is away on holiday, Care Shield can provide temporary cover to ensure continuation of your service in their absence. Our carers are trained to adapt quickly to different situations, offering expert services and support in new environments.
For those who require a higher level of care, Care Shield offer a 24 hour live-in care service, in which one of our highly trained carers will live with you in your home. This allows our carers to offer a unique, tailored service around the clock which is specifically designed to meet your needs through the day.
If you find it difficult to spend time away from your home, Care Shield can help you to enjoy a relaxing getaway in the UK. A Care Shield carer will accompany you on your short holiday, supporting you and assisting you with any aspects of personal care or healthcare that are needed for you to enjoy some downtime.
In cases of terminal illness, or an urgent requirement for a high level of care, Care Shield can help to accelerate your transfer from hospital to home with our emergency response service. Our team will quickly carry out the necessary assessment, enabling us to get a care plan into place immediately.
At Care Shield, we believe that getting a good night’s sleep is essential for health and wellbeing. That’s why we offer a range of flexible night care services to make it easier for you to relax at home. From getting into and out of bed, to administering evening medications, our night carers are here help.
We understand that no two individuals are alike, and that each person has their own specific needs and requirements. That’s why we don’t use pre-planned care services. Instead, at Care Shield we assess each and every one of our service users to ensure we’re offering a tailored service especially for them.
