Being in hospital with limited mobility, I knew the only way for me to return home was to reach out to a home care service provider. Whilst I didn’t know too much at the time about how the process worked, I do know that I got an exceptional carer in the form of Andrew. Ever since, I’ve been slowly seeing what an amazing difference being back at home makes compared to staying in the hospital.
There’s no place like home
What amazed me most at first was the progress I was making and how much of a difference being at home was, alongside Andrew’s help, instead of being in the hospital. I’ve managed to do more movement in a month of being at home with Andrew than I’ve done for four months in the hospital. I think that no matter what complex condition someone suffers from, there is nothing that makes you feel the same like being in the comfort of your own home.
From carer to great friend
I think part of reason I am making such a good progress since coming home from hospital is because me and Andrew have got such a great relationship; we have similar interests and personalities. That's probably the main reason why I would recommend Direct Homecare to anyone looking for a homecare provider: they really put a lot of thought and effort into selecting a carer who is closely aligned to your personality. While Andrew really knows how to motivate me in my day-to-day life, I've also taken him fishing and camping, so it’s a win-win situation for both of us. But most importantly, I value reliability and trustworthiness and ever since having him as a carer, Andrew has never let me down. Being able to completely trust someone makes a huge difference not just for me, but I believe for anyone and because of this I am thankful.
