There are several reasons that may lead us to seek specialised home care – health problems, post-operative care or for the most part, ageing. At times like this, it is important to know who you can count on to provide the care that you or your loved one needs and deserves.
When living abroad, cultural background is an important factor to consider when looking for a home care service. As an ‘expat’, you are likely to feel more comfortable if you have care that is familiar to you and you can communicate easily with the care provider. That's why Saar@home´s team of carers speak a variety of different languages - English, Dutch, German, French, Spanish, and of course Portuguese.
Live in Care
Live-in care is one of many care solutions.
Many, despite having health and social needs, would choose to remain at home in an environment that is comfortable and safe for them. People are very emotionally attached to their home and what it represents - comfort, memories, maybe pets, so having someone in the home to assist in everyday living, providing support and companionship makes for a better quality of life in familiar surroundings. This approach is often the least invasive package of care that leaves you in control of your life and your own environment, when compared to alternatives, such as moving into a care home.
Medical and non-medical home care
Saar@home offers non-medical home care services, as well as nursing care, specialist palliative care, post-operative care. All these options are nurse lead by teams of carers or nurses that receive in-house training. Non-medical services provide assistance with the day to day needs of life that don’t require medical intervention, e.g. nutrition and hydration checks, meal planning, grocery shopping, assistance with bathing, laundry and cooking, pet sitting, and much more.
A phone call is all it takes to get the ball rolling. Thereafter the Saar@home Care Coordinator will make an ‘assessment visit’ totally free of charge. During that visit the type of care required can be advised and agreed and all other related queries answered ensuring that the services ultimately agreed upon best meet the needs of the client.
Help is just a phone call away! If you would like to speak directly with Saar@home, please call +351 961 310 877 or take a look at the website www.saarathome.com
