To return home from a residential care home and live as independently as possible.
About the Client
The client is a lovely gentleman who had been in a care home for the past 18 months, after initially being admitted to hospital when he was found living in an uninhabitable home. He had been living alone in his home of 50 years, after his beloved wife passed away.
He suffers with short term memory loss, as well as several other health conditions. The sadness of losing the love of his life many years before, along with his health challenges, meant that over time he found it increasingly difficult to care for himself and keep on top of things at home.
Our client has always wanted to continue with his daily routines and social activities, which stopped when he was first admitted to hospital.
We assessed his situation within the care home and a care plan was carefully constructed, based on the gentleman’s specific needs. This enabled him to return home, with one of our very competent, kind, and experienced live in carers on hand.
Since returning home, our client has been happy, thriving and well cared for, as well as being kept safe, nurtured, and highly entertained!
He has resumed his much loved activities with the support of Eximius and his bright & bubbly carer!
They always have so much fun together! All the pictures reflect how much of his familiar lifestyle he has back.
They have created many new memories together along the way, so he is happier, healthier and finally living the life he always wanted, after losing the love of his life.
The Live-in Carer’s Perspective
“I have had the pleasure of being AS’s full-time live-in carer for the past 14 months. He is a kind, sweet gentleman who is now with the help of myself and Eximius, living his very best life!
We go out every day doing different activities including visiting his synagogue, coffee mornings, bingo, and an entertainment evening weekly, but by far his greatest love is our twice-yearly holidays to Eastbourne. He and his wife used to go there on a regular basis but unfortunately, she passed away several years ago leaving a massive hole in his life.
We travel back there twice a year so he can visit the places that hold such a special place in his heart, he still knows a lot of people in the legions and clubs that we visit each day while away! And he is such a character that everyone remembers him too!
He especially enjoys joining the gentlemen at the RAF club for lunch each day and our stop offs for a wander down the pier for ice cream, fresh cockles and jellied eels on the way back to the apartment. I truly believe that all this is keeping him 86 years young!”
