We recently launched our first-ever team in Buckinghamshire. Our journey to this point has been nothing short of incredible, and it’s all about our commitment to providing local care for local people. At the core of our mission is our dedication to helping people live the life they want, right in the comfort of their own homes. And our latest expansion into High Wycombe and its surrounding areas is another step to help even more people!
At Bellevie, we’re not just in the business of providing care; we’re in the business of building connections, creating bonds, and making our communities stronger one smiling face at a time. Our secret? We’re not just any care provider; we’re your neighbours, friends, and fellow community members.
All of us working in social care know that something needs to change. There are around 13,000 people stuck in hospital beds in England who could be discharged if only the right support was in place. But with more than 165,000 job vacancies in adult social care alone, the system is under immense strain.
Home care means different things to different people, but broadly speaking it’s the kind of care that can help you live as independently as possible in the home you love. The kind of care that BelleVie offers is suitable for adults of all ages. It can be a short-term arrangement – to help you get by while you’re recovering from an operation for instance – or it can be something more long-lasting, provided as often as needed on a regular basis.
As we get older, we may start to notice that our home doesn’t feel as comfortable or convenient as it used to. Suddenly, the stairs seem steeper, the doorways narrower, and the floors slipperier. The home, which should be a place of comfort and safety, can sometimes become an impediment, and can make going about daily life a lot more difficult. Home adaptations for the elderly, and anyone else that feels like they might need them however, can make our homes safer, more comfortable, and enjoyable places to live.
It’s estimated that there are currently nearly one million people in the UK who are living with dementia. As well as experiencing memory problems, disorientation, behaviour changes and confusion, people with dementia are also more prone to psychological symptoms such as depression and anxiety. Whilst there is currently no cure for dementia, people can be supported to live well with the condition through the use of music in their day-to-day lives.
