I would just like to tell you a little bit about how BA12 Home Helpers of Bourton, Dorset came about. Firstly WE ARE NOT AN AGENCY We are a sole traders not A company All my ladies are self employed
Some years ago, I was employed by an elderly, intellectually astute but frail gentleman who did not want to end his days in residential care. He was very wary of strangers in every respect. I gained his trust & with me as supervisor, set up a team of ladies to cover every aspect of his needs so that he could remain comfortable in his own familiar surroundings.
I loved the caring side of my job so much that when my gentleman passed away I wanted to do something in his memory. He helped me learn about myself, gave me confidence, a huge sense of job satisfaction & the realisation that caring is not just a job but requires, compassion, dedication & loyalty, the time to make the client feel really special, one of the family and not just another number on a work rota.
Everyone enjoys a clean home, but for the elderly or disabled simple housekeeping tasks can become unmanageable. An untidy home can contribute to feelings of depression, isolation, and hopelessness – it can even be dangerous, increasing the risk of injury or illness. It may also be the first sign your loved one is struggling and needs extra help at home. This is just one of the many services we can offer. Our ladies come from the locality of the person who needs help so that they do not have to rush from one client to another. We pride ourselves on keeping the same lady to the same client which offers peace of mind as they know who is calling each time
