Whether you or a family member needs a little extra help around the house, assistance at either end of the day, or 24-hour support to live at home, Olam Care Services can help.

Care for yourself or an elderly relative can be provided in the comfort of your own home. Our homecare services can support seniors with those every day tasks that may have become difficult to manage. Daily activities like dressing, bathing and cooking may not be as easy to complete as they once were but our friendly team of carers can help.

Companionship can have huge benefits to the mental and physical health and wellbeing of a person. Social interaction can be an important factor in preventing isolation and loneliness in the elderly. At Olam Care, we believe that companionship is important and recognise that whilst completing daily activities, having a friendly and trusted visitor to talk to can really put a smile on someone’s face. Home care (domiciliary care) can be arranged on an hourly, daily or weekly basis for a single visit or full time care.

Care and support can be arranged within 48-72 hours to support emergency situations on a short-term basis, including convalescence support following hospital discharge.

Sleep-in/Waking Night Service – Cover to provide night-time assistance which can be done on a sleep-over or waking night basis.

Why choose homecare?

There are now more choices than ever for people who want to remain in their own home. It is our aim to make staying at home as easy as possible, to give our clients the level of independence they desire whilst giving loved ones peace of mind.

In our experience support at home for older people is entirely possible even for those with specialist care requirements, with costs typically comparable to those associated with residential care. Fully tailored to the needs of the individual, our support offers significant benefits over residential care, allowing you or your loved one to continue to live independently in the comfort and security of your own home, enjoy your favourite activities and remain part of your local community.

Live-in Support is the ultimate level of support and has the benefit of true continuity. We also provide Live-in Support throughout North East.

Support for older people in their own home is becoming an increasingly popular alternative to being admitted to a care home. It avoids the trauma of potential separation from a loved one or giving up a treasured pet and the potential loss of freedom and independence.
