Reablement / Post-Hospital Discharge Care

No one envisage suffering a knock-back in life due to illness or unforeseen accident or injury  that threatens our activities of daily living or our lives. Also returning home subsequent to being hospitalised can be daunting for anyone, particularly where there is loss of physical strength or self-confidence in their capabilities to carry out things they used to do for themselves.

Respite Care

Our respite care provides short term breaks to main carers working with family members or friends. There are many respite care options and strategies that you may not be aware of. We acknowledge that seeking support and maintaining one’s own health is key to managing the care giving years. With respite care main carers become less exhausted, isolated, or overwhelmed. Finding the right balance between care giving responsibilities and other commitments requires persistence, patience, and preparation and we are here to assist with that. Over the cause of time, the demands of caring for your partner, a loved one or a family member on a full-time basis can leave you feeling tired and in need of a little time to restore your energy. Short-term respite care gives partners and family members who normally take the responsibility for providing care the opportunity to take a well-earned break. There are an increasing number of families in the UK who now care for their elderly loved ones for many reasons including cultural ones and this experience, without an alternative, maybe stressful. Sterling Standard Care Group can assist the family carer with service cover from a couple of hours break to 24 hours support.

We believe in seeing the whole person and not just the condition. We talk to you and your family to find out what is important to you, what you can do and what you would like to achieve from your care and support.
