Lifestyle Support- Home Care
As we get older, maintaining our way of life can become difficult. Day to day tasks can use up all our energy making it harder to enjoy life. Our lifestyle support service is here to help shoulder the burden of things like laundry, housekeeping, shopping etc so that you can have more time and energy to enjoy the good things in life.
At Kepplegate, we believe that in living longer, we must live well, that is why we offer Lifestyle support as part of our home care services. You may not necessarily need support with maintaining your personal care, but day to day tasks that once were easy may now feel burdensome. With our Lifestyle support, we can either assist you in completing these daily tasks or, take them over for you to give you more time to spend on the things you enjoy in life.
Our minimum visit duration is 1 hour as we believe this enables us to provide people with the support they need without being rushed, unsafe, whilst also allowing for that bit extra time to either get to know each other more, or to respond to the unexpected. Our Lifestyle Support Service is available 7 days a week.

Before our services start, our care coordinator or care lead will come and meet you or your loved one at a time and place best suited to you. The aim is to get to know each other before our services start and to ensure we can put together a package that is just right.
We use digital care planning which reduces paper work and allows care recording to be more fluid and fluent throughout the pop in. The person receiving the support and anyone else they wish to can get access to their care notes through any smartphone or tablet. They can even contribute to their records, send notifications to the team, or even submit a compliment or a complaint to the lead. We believe in having a truly open, feedback positive culture.
