Terrablu is more than just a homecare provider. We provide an extended family for many of our clients and their families – to the extent that relatives who have got used to having us in their lives often ask us to start looking after them.
That’s the case for a gentleman in his 70s whom we look after. We used to deliver care to his parents, who were in their 90s. Sadly, they passed away, but their son – who lived with them – had grown accustomed to seeing our carers every day and they had become an extended part of his family. So he asked us to keep on visiting and look after him instead.
He’s just moved out of the home he shared with his parents into a modern flat, which he loves. In fact, he sings all the time – a sure sign that he is happy with his new life. The continuity that our carers have provided in helping him transition to living alone in a new home has been key in helping secure his confidence.
Our Care Heroes provide an extended family, not just for our clients, but for their relatives as well.
