Collaborative working in Great Barr and West Bromwich

26-Feb-16

Clients love the Home Instead way of caring, especially the reliability and compassion of their CAREGivers. For truly holistic care it is important to work together with other partners and organisations such as Occupational Therapists, Community Nurses, District Nurses, GPs as well as volunteer organisations such as Age Uk, Kaleidoscope Group, Alzheimers Society, Demenetia Action Alliance and Buds.

Home Instead support older people in parts of Sandwell, Walsall and Birmingham, to stay at home for as long as they want to, and, by signposting their clients to other support groups they hope that they can stay at home where their cherished memories are.

Home Instead feel that to truly care for clients they need to also care for the community as well and for near on two years now they have been delivering their free Scam Awareness talks and Dementia Friends sessions to the local community. Groups such as Age UK, West Midlands Fire Service, Church Groups and Patient Participation Groups are just an example of where they have supported the community. Home Instead are also partners with the Sandwell and Birmingham Dementia Action Alliance and Sandwell Healthwatch.

To Home Instead its personal.
