We understand that to most people, home is where they are happiest, most comfortable and feel safest.
When a loved one needs a helping hand with their care, it can be a worrying time as first thoughts may turn to whether or not they need to move into a care home. Thankfully, however, there is another option and this is where domiciliary care comes in.
One thing that makes us so unique is that we only operate within Essex and therefore most, if not all, of our carers are local.
Our team of carers in Colchester have expertise in providing personalised in-home care for a wide range of conditions, including:
Acquired brain injury
Obsessive-conditions disorder (OCD)
Housework and cleaning
Attending medical appointments
Typically we find that many of our clients only require around 30-45 minutes of help each day which means care at home can be significantly cheaper than full time care in a care home.
Our care services are 100% tailored to meet each individual's specific needs, so if additional care is required, we can discuss this during your initial care consultation.
We are a family-run, local care provider, supported and part-funded by Essex County Council. Our team of professionally trained carers are all aware of how important it is that both you and your family feel listened to and cared for. We ensure that we do not use agency staff as we know that many of our clients build up relationships with our local care-givers who know the area and are able to take them shopping or have a chat about things that they like to do in the Colchester area. Because all of our carers are local and based at our Colchester Care home, there is always someone close by to offer support which can be very reassuring to know.
For our elderly clients, domiciliary care may be the initial stepping stone that will eventually lead to either requiring a live-in carer or moving into a care home full time; both of which are something that Butterfly’s can provide. This helps provide continuation of care throughout which can make any transitions less challenging further down the line.
For others who may require support due to a disability, home care may be all they ever need to help them to keep their independence and remain in the home they love so much. We understand that each person’s care and level of support may change, so we are always available to discuss and alter our care plans for you.
We know that choosing the right care for yourself or a loved one is extremely important and a key part of that is feeling comfortable with your chosen care provider which is best achieved by having a chat in person.
