Hourly Care

Our ‘Hourly’ Service involves an Independent Living Assistant (ILA) visiting the client in their own home, throughout the day on separate occasions when support is required. We provide assistance to a diverse range of people and cater for couples as well as those living alone.

Hourly care services are provided for those that are seeking companionship and assistance with housekeeping; to those that are physically/mentally disabled, the frail elderly, or terminally ill; and those that suffer from all manner of challenges such as:

  • Alzheimer’s
  • Cancer
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Dementia
  • ME
  • MS
  • Parkinson’s
  • Stroke

We will be more than happy to discuss any support package you have in mind. As some examples, here are certain activities that we regularly provide assistance with:

  • Companionship, social activities and outings
  • General housework, shopping, cooking, laundry and cleaning
  • Help with the care of family pets
  • Personal care - dressing/undressing, washing, showering, bathing, oral care, hair care, shaving, continence care and toileting
  • Round-the-clock reassurance - the peace of mind of knowing that someone is on-hand should they be needed
  • Total freedom of choice - such as choosing when to get up or go to bed

However, our hourly care services are totally tailored to the requirements of those we are looking after and so there are many more activities that can be undertaken for our clients.

I made a telephone call to Accessible Care and a swift assessment was carried out and my mother received care immediately which is proving to be incredible.

Without Accessible Care my mums last few months would not have been as comfortable so for that I am forever grateful.”
