Ellen was quite reluctant to get support, but her daughters strongly felt she’d benefit from having someone coming in for some companionship, and support with meal planning and shopping. We started with a package of 2 visits each week and shopping, for £340/month.
We give the people we support the flexibility to change their package to suit their changing needs. Ellen was no different, she started to enjoy the company of our Wellbeing Support Workers and asked to increase support to include daily visits to help her get ready for the day, have a shower, and get a good and nutritious breakfast. We visited her 7 days a week, with a new £980/month package.
