A day in the life of Bill and Rose

Here is the story of how City Care helped Bill and his family through difficult times. His wife Rose had coped for years with Bill's advancing Dementia and loss of mobility due to progressive osteoporosis. 

City Care was introduced as a helping hand for Rose and has continued to work with her and the family to this day. Bill has formed an excellent relationship with his chosen male care team and loves the social aspect of his male companions. Our carers, Noel and Ian, spend a lot of time with Bill within the local community. Bill enjoys spending his social time at the beach, park and at the pub having a pint and a giggle with the boys. This provides Rose with a refreshing break where she can have respite time and do things around the home.

We offer emotional support to both Bill, his wife and family. Due to the long-standing relationship and time spent with Bill and his family, we are able to understand Bill's communication needs and assist him to lead a full and happy life.

We work alongside Rose to meet Bill's care needs and the team adapt on a day to day basis with the input we have. Rose still wishes to play a big part in Bill's care and we support her to do this.
