What Happens When I Need Your Help
If you have decided that you need our support to aid your independent living, then we will first send you a self assessment form for you to complete at your leisure before a full needs assessment is completed. A senior member of the team will come and visit you to complete the assessment. All information is completely confidential. It can be quite long winded, as there are a number of important questions that need to be asked. If you wish, you can have a member of the family or friend present during the assessment. All the information is then taken into consideration and your personal support plan can be developed to ensure all your care needs and wishes are covered. Your care needs are reviewed on a regular basis, but if your needs change suddenly, then a review can be done urgently to ensure you get the best care available.
Choosing Your Care Team
It is a well known fact that many people do not like constant change of carers. They often say, they only want a small team of carers to visit them. The nature of our work does involve some very personal contact and so we provide regular carers people can feel comfortable with, get to know and trust.
We at Saltimmary Homecare aim to only send carers that have already been introduced to you. We try to avoid sending carers you are not familiar with, and we will contact you if we are forced to do otherwise. You will always have a carer list, showing a photo and giving the name of each of your carers. This is to help identify each carer that visits you.
How is Care Paid for
It all depends on the amount of savings you have or if you are entitled to Continuing care payments. If you have less than £23,000 savings then you may be entitled to funding from the local authority. It is always an idea to contact your local authority for information on care costs.
If you are entitled to local authority funding, then you are able to choose which company you would like to assist you with your care. You can do this by asking for 'Direct payments'. These can then be paid direct to the company of your choice or you can have the payments direct to you, so you can pay for your care.
If you are unable to get funding and have to pay privately, then you will be invoiced on a four weekly basis.
Care costs can become very expensive, Saltimmary Homecare are very competitively priced.

Join Our Team
We are always on the lookout for dedicated, compassionate people who would like to assist the elderly with their every day needs. If you are a qualified carer already having level 2 or 3 in Adult social care, then we would like to hear from you.
If you would like a career in care, but have no qualifications or experience, we offer full training so we would still like to hear from you.
