We are a domiciliary care provider who help and support people who still live in their own homes but require additional support with different areas of their daily schedule, including household tasks, personal care, and any other activity that allows them to maintain both their independence and quality of life. They may be starting to find it difficult to complete different areas of their routine and want some support.
Regular home visits, from 30 minutes through to several hours a day, can be arranged to help you with a wide range of everyday tasks, including:
- Personal and continence care
- Managing medication
- Helping to mobilise in and around the home
- Household tasks and meal preparation
- Clinical care, including catheter and stoma management and PEG feeding
Our service offers independent living with access to a range of benefits often unavailable to people in care. Our flexible support is regularly evaluated and adjusted to suit every stage of recovery. Through partnerships, we provide solutions to a variety of day-to-day challenges met by individuals, organisations, and companies. Our primary role and main area of expertise are to provide supported accommodation with the added benefit of floating care packages that allow individuals to be treated or supported in a dwelling that they hold the tenancy to. Our supported living and domiciliary care program helps people all over the country from all walks of life to live more independent and happy lives.
Our program provides support for people with:
- Learning difficulties
- Severe physical disabilities
- Autistic spectrum conditions
- Complex needs
- Mental health problems
- A history of drug or alcohol dependency
- Personality Disorder
- Asylum Seekers
- Complex Needs
- Higher Support needs
Anyone living with a long-term, progressive illness or injury can benefit from complex care. Overseen by our team of clinical nurses with years of medical experience and expertise, we will ensure that you have the right level of care in place for you that enables you to live well with your condition, whilst being surrounded with your home comforts.
There is a wide variety of different health conditions and symptoms that Total Care Options can provide support with. They include:
- Neurological conditions – including multiple sclerosis (MS), motor neurone disease (MND), Parkinson’s, Huntington’s and stroke
- Catheter, bowel and stoma care
- Tracheostomy care
- Gastronomy care – including PEG feeding
- Acquired brain injury
- Spinal cord injury
We’ll get to know you and everything about your condition and symptoms that you need support with. That way, you can receive bespoke, person-centred care at home, enabling you to live the life you want to lead on your terms.
Live-in care offers round-the-clock support to you in your home, so you can receive the care you need whenever you require it. Residing with you in your home, a live-in carer will stay with you day and night, getting to know everything about you and your routines whilst providing bespoke care. And because we understand how unsettling it may be to invite someone you don’t know to live in your home with you, we’ll work with you to select the perfect care for you, in both care experience and personality.
Visiting care is dedicated home care on an hourly basis that allows you to choose when and how you need support. Carers may pop in twice a week or several hours a day to give you the support you need – whether that’s personal care and help to prepare your meals, light housework, taking you to appointments or general companionship. Visiting carers may also be involved in your care to provide a rest break for your live-in carer.
Respite care is designed to be delivered on a short-term basis from either a live-in carer or visiting carer. You may choose respite care if your regular caregiver needs to take a break to recharge their batteries, if you’ve just been discharged from hospital and need extra help while you recover or if you want to take a holiday or attend a celebration but are unable to by yourself. We’ll ensure that you have a carer who is able to deliver the right level of complex care that you require.
Our complex care packages are overseen by our team of clinical experts. So, whether you need 24-hour care as your condition progresses or daily visits from a local carer to support with a catheter, our Nurse team will work closely with your care manager to ensure you have exactly the right care in place for you.
Short Notice, Ad Hoc Bookings
Healthcare is vital round the clock and often can’t be planned for. We equip ourselves for your emergency by having a flexible database ready at a moment’s notice. Combining adaptability and experience, we make it our business to know the environments you operate in and prepare accordingly. This is why we run a 24/7 service, with a qualified Consultant ready to help.
Short, Medium, Longer-Term Contracts
Different ways of working suit different settings and different workers. Fitting one to the other requires discernment, wisdom, and experience. That’s where Total care Options excels. We work with all types of vacancies to cater to clients and staff needs. This could be to cover short or long-term illness, Maternity leave, or just the odd shift here and there.
Temporary to Permanent
Total Care Options recognise that every working environment is unique. Sometimes it’s best to try different team combinations and ways of working. Our temp-to-perm option allows you to find the best fit before it’s set in stone.
Training and Compliance
Total Care Options takes accountability very seriously and believes in encouraging people to fulfil their potential. Our comprehensive training and development program complements our rigorous Compliance Safeguarding System to ensure our teams are always safe, prepared, and motivated.
The Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS) Service
The DoLS assessment makes sure that the care being given to a person is in the person’s best interests. There are six parts to the assessment: age, mental health, mental capacity, best interests, eligibility and no refusals.
Total Care Options offer Mental Health and Best Interest Assessments service for Local Authorities around UK.
Our team includes experienced Business Managers who work alongside the BIA (Best Interest Assessors) and Section 12 Dr’s and ensure quality assurance by way of providing formal and informal supervisions and quality checking of the work that staff undertake. All staff are trained and experienced in carrying out DoLS assessments.
