What is concierge home care?

2 Nov 2020 / Artisan Aunties

Artisan Aunties prides itself on providing high quality concierge home care services. Perfect for the elderly and people with disabilities who need a bit of help at home and would also like some companionship. All concierge home care services are designed to help you not just live independently, but also enjoy that independence.

In a nutshell, concierge home care is whatever you want it to be. Your needs will change over the years, and your home care services will evolve with them. You can therefore pick and choose the type of home care you need at any given time. Specific tasks will vary depending on what it is you need, but can be grouped into a number of different genres.

Live-in care

It could be a permanent arrangement, or to help out if you’re unwell for a while, or for respite care. A concierge care service will make sure there’s someone with you 24 hours a day which will enable you to keep living in your own surroundings.

Companionship

Loneliness is a well publicised problem for all age groups, but can be particularly severe amongst the elderly. There are a number of coping mechanisms individuals can use to help them feel more positive and less isolated, but you can’t beat companionship for helping you to feel like you’re not alone. If what you need is someone to pop round for a chat on a regular basis, then that is something a concierge home care service will provide.

Everyday support

If you’re less able to keep the house as spick and span as you’d like it to be, or your mobility problems mean your dog isn’t getting enough exercise, or you need someone to help you with an online supermarket order, a concierge service will find the perfect person to do it for you. As time goes on, you may need more frequent support with medication, personal care and cooking, which is also part of your concierge package.

Out and about

Maybe you’d enjoy life more if you could get out and about. Sometimes you may need support with getting around, and would feel safer if someone was with you. At other times, you may just want to share an experience with someone, whether it’s going out for a coffee, a walk in the grounds of a stately home, a visit to the shopping centre, or the cinema – basically giving you the ability to do whatever you want to do.

Helping busy families

A concierge care service isn’t restricted to helping older people or those with disabilities. Busy families can also benefit from a bit of outside help. Working parents with young children often employ au pairs to help out with childcare and household chores. Au pairs can live in or out, and are often young people who are looking for work that will enable them to travel to the UK and improve their English, or just experience a different culture for a while.

House Sitting

House sitting is another service that many busy families use when they are on holiday or have to be away from home for any length of time. Trusted house sitters will look after your pets as well as keep the house maintained and secure.
