Right at Home Sefton

Our clients receive the care in their home, the way they want to have it delivered. They are involved in all decision-making, including agreement of their personalised care plan. We are passionate about making a real difference to the lives of the clients we care for and their family and friends. We know that emotional and moral support for our clients and their family can be just as important as our specialist care knowledge, so it is ingrained in the support we provide and we always keep in close contact with concerned family and friends. We also understand that good day-to-day communication is vital to give families and loved ones peace of mind, which is why all daily records and communication sheets are kept easily accessible in the clients’ home and any concern can be easily addressed through a call to the office.

1. Action Plan

1. The National Dementia Declaration lists seven outcomes that the DAA are seeking to achieve for people with dementia and their carers. How would you describe your organisation’s role in delivering better outcomes for people with dementia and their carers?

Right at Home provides three distinct levels of service for people living with dementia.

Our highly-personalised hourly care and support service offer respite and assistance when it’s needed, from a small but consistent team of highly- trained CareGivers who understand the specifics of your loved one’s condition.

Our managed live-in care service meets the needs of those who need a trusted carer to be on hand in the home around the clock.

Our pioneering Dementia DELAY programme, delivered by specialist DDP practitioners, uses a five-pillared support plan to stabilise and slow the progression of dementia symptoms. Results have included wider cognitive function, improved ability to communicate and increased independence.

2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?

From a local perpsective, our one real challenge is in being a new provider with limited knowledge of what other support groups exist and where we can add most value.

Whilst Right at Home on a National scale is seen as a real thought leader, we recognise that at a local level, we need to immerse ourselves and our people in the lives of those living with Dementia in order to offer the best possible support to our clients and their loved ones.
