"Our carer is a huge positive part of our lives, she ensures Dad is washed and dressed daily in clean clothes.
She makes his breakfast and lunch and always has a few minutes to sit with Dad whilst he drinks a cuppa and has a chat. It’s about knowing Dad is well cared for. She is efficient and kind and warm and she and my Dad are always laughing together. He feels safe and secure. Dad’s carer is important to us and it isn't just that she does her job exceedingly well, it’s the additional small things that make such a difference and are so appreciated."
Making it easier for residents to have choice and control in their journey of care
There is evidence to support that where people have choice and control in managing their health, and where they can avoid leaving their communities to have care and treatment, they have happier lives and live longer.
Avante Home Care and Support firmly believes in providing communities where everyone has a vibrant and fulfilling life. The Home Carers deliver care and support to people living at home supporting them with maintaining independence, providing care and helping to improve wellbeing allowing people to do more of what matters and keep them connected with others within their communities.
"When Arthur and I talked through the opportunity of attending the Royal Garden Party it evoked memories with Arthur which he was keen to share with me and share his experiences.
We spent a long time that afternoon chatting about the old times and he was delighted he had the opportunity to attend the Royal Garden Party. Arthur’s highlights were having his photo taken with celebrities and the food. He said he will never forget the day and to me that’s what it’s all about."
Whether you need support to live in your own home, or assistance in your daily life, we are here for you, 365 days a year. Every care and support package we provide is unique, which is why we ensure our highly skilled care workers are trained to meet your individual needs.
"I have three young children, I work full time and I’m also a carer for my Mum.
As her care needs have become greater I’ve realised I can’t do it all. Avante have lifted the load from me, I now have a better balance as a daughter to Mum and not just a carer. The care and support provided means Mum can go out for the day, or have other company at home allowing me some extra time to spend with my family."
Wellbeing, both physical and mental, is a key focus for our carers, working with the individual to develop their interests and hobbies in turn will improve their wellbeing.
"It’s been hard not living nearer to Mum and Dad
Since Dad’s accident it really knocked his confidence. Avante has not only helped his rehabilitation but also supported him to be a husband again. With this help I have peace of mind knowing his wellbeing is at the heart of everything they do. He now goes out at least once a week with mum and their fantastic staff, and this week Mum and Dad went to the cinema together!"
