These services can be tailored to the home environment, including nursing and respite care, domestic help, home maintenance, social support and personal care.
The experienced Blue Haven Care team can advise on which services will best meet your current needs, with the flexibility to change in future. Our team offers the very best in continuous in home support care services in a relaxed, attentive and caring way.
Our personal care service includes assisting people with showering, dressing, toileting, shaving, hair care, assisting with mobility, helping put on stockings, splints or callipers, monitoring self-medication and prompting to undertake a planned exercise program.
We offer one-on-one respite to give a carer time to themselves, via a volunteer or paid worker.
Our team is able to assist with domestic tasks if you are finding them difficult to manage on your own. This includes cleaning (floors, bathrooms and kitchens), changing bed linen and doing laundry. We can also assist with shopping for essential items and bill paying.
“We found your service which you offer to be very satisfactory. Would have no hesitation in recommending Blue Haven Care. Also found my home helper to be very willing, helpful and friendly. A delight to have in our home…another important recommendation is that my helper was totally trustworthy.” -Heather, Domestic Assistance client
Taking care of the outside of a home often requires physical strength and can be difficult to maintain if mobility is limited or you are unwell. We offer regular lawn mowing or one-off assistance with garden maintenance, yard and garden clean up or rubbish removal, minor repairs and maintenance to dwellings, basic carpentry, small painting jobs, and basic plumbing such as replacing washers and minor leaks.
Interaction with others
If you live alone, our team offers friendly visiting to keep you company. We can also assist with reading correspondence, and card and letter writing.
“All BHC staff who attended my father were wonderful. Even though the BHC team are very busy, they always were willing to have a chat with him. He was very fond of the staff and looked forward to them coming into his home. I can’t speak highly enough of all staff and co-ordinators at BHC.” – Carer of BHC Client
