Whether you are frail, have a physical disability or another care need, if you need support to live independently in your own home, home care, also known as domiciliary care may be the right choice for you.
Home care can include services such:
Personal care (help with washing and dressing)
Getting in and out of bed
Assistance to go to out: e.g. to the doctors, day care centre or a friend's house.
Depending on your individual needs, the same care worker or agency may provide long-term 24-hour care, emergency care, respite care (for short breaks for an unpaid family carer) or short visits which can range from 15 minutes to an hour or more.
If you have a loved one looking after you, they can qualify as a carer and receive an allowance. A carer can have a carer's assessment to determine whether they require help to carry out their caring role.
Adapting your home, by for example installing a walk-in shower, can also help you stay independent. There are home gadgets and adaptations available to ensure you don't, for example, leave the gas on or leave the tap running and sensors you can wear that can detect a fall or alert others that you need help.
Telehealth' and 'telecare' technology, include devices to remind people to take medication and enable care staff to remotely monitor health e.g. blood pressure.
Small adaptations can include fitting handrails and large adaptations may include installing a downstairs bathroom, fitting a stair lift, or widening doorways to allow wheelchair access.
As well as care and support organised by the council, some people are also eligible to receive help from the NHS. This help may be a nursing service for people who are ill or recovering at home after leaving hospital.
If you think you require help in your home, contact your local authority's social services department to ask for an assessment of your care needs. If you have no home of your own, shared lives services (also known as adult placement services) can offer individuals a place to live in a shared lives carer's home. Shared lives schemes support adults with learning disabilities, mental health problems or other care needs that make it hard for them to live alone.
Several of our clients require companionship, someone to give them the reassurance that everything is safe and secure. But as a result of everyone having their own unique needs, we provide our clients with fully vetted, trained and qualified staff to help support them in any way that they require.
As well as having a cup of tea and a chat, we help our clients in a plethora of everyday activities, including:
Activity Visits (Theatre, Social Club, Library, Hairdresser)
Trips to visit family/friends
Conducting a security check for their residence
We all know that night sleep is one of the most important aspects of our daily life.
Especially for the primary carers, sleepless night can affect their ability to function during the day, leaving them unsettled thus increasing their levels of anxiety. We are committed to support you with your night time cover.
This service intends to support service users whose needs might change as the result of their personal circumstance and surrounding. We offer a flexible night cover that will suit your needs at any time. This ensures family members can relax in the knowledge that their loved ones are safe and have some peace of mind.
Learning Disability Care
Our services expand much further than Personal Care, Social Care and Domestic Care, our staff are trained and eager to support clients with learning disabilities to find work, find suitable housing, meet new people and generally live the life they choose to live.
All the support provided is individually focused on the person receiving the service. The specific focus on the person, their needs and their desired outcomes means that the support provided by FairView Resources is efficient and achieves the objectives set out in the Care Plan.
Dementia & Alzheimers Care
The symptoms of Dementia begin by affecting a person’s memory, be it forgetting names, where they have been or what they are planning on doing, this forgetfulness understandably leads to the individual becoming confused and understandably frustrated.
Because of the demand in care for clients with Dementia, Johav Care offer a wide range of support for those with the illness and for those who have family members with dementia.

Respite Care is a service that encompasses all of our care services, be it Personal Care, Social Care or Domestic Care.
There are many advantages of Respite Care. Not only giving the original carer a well-earned break, it gives the client an opportunity to socially interact with another friendly face. Our carers are trained and qualified to deal with any situation, and would be more than willing to undertake personal and domestic care as well as accompany the client to various activities, such as swimming, coffee mornings or bingo evenings.
The purpose of respite care is to give the main carer, usually a family member, the freedom to decide when and where they take a break from caring and is therefore personalised to each client.
It’s made a big difference for many of our customers, and is provided with the highest level of excellence. With this service, we ensure all details are simple, seamless and handled in a timely manner. Whenever you work with Johav Care, you can trust that you’re in great hands.
