Long term conditions

'Long-term conditions or chronic diseases are conditions for which there is currently no cure, and which are managed with drugs and other treatment’

On occasions, there’s a requirement for a longer-term approach to addressing home care and support needs. This may be due to having a long-term condition such as motor neurone disease or Parkinson’s disease, or due to a physical disability that reduces levels of independence. At myCare we know our clients prefer to remain in their own homes rather than having to go into residential care and can provide the solution to enable this.

What Is A Long Term Condition?

A condition or chronic disease for which there is currently no cure

How Might I Be Affected?

A long term condition may mean you are unable to independently manage activities of daily living such as washing and dressing, or managing household tasks.

How Can We Help?

We can help you with the tasks that you are no longer able to manage independently. We can sit down and discuss your needs and how we could help to retain your independence.

How we can help:

  • Providing personal care and support such as washing and dressing as required
  • Fetch shopping and/or prescriptions
  • Domestic support in the home such as cleaning or doing the laundry
  • Social support such as visiting for a friendly chat
  • Support with bills and other paperwork that may have gathered whilst you have been in hospital
  • Provide respite care for a couple of hours or longer if required

What our clients say

A lovely message of thanks from a Care Manager in Aberdeen

Having Brigita, Mums carer, is a Godsend!  It really has “saved” Mum and us. Mum really seems to have taken to her and is very settled with her. They get on very well and Mum is chatting about lots of different things they discuss and starting to take an interest again. Mum is eating better and getting more sleep. We are not having to sleeping over and are all getting to “breathe” again. Words cannot express how all our lives have changed with the fantastic help and support Mum has been given to be able to continue to live in her own home and be as independent as possible”.

Note from Nick (Managing Director): Thank you so much for taking the time to feedback on our service. For me it’s seeing letters like this that gets me up in morning, knowing such a positive impact is being had on someones life. Thank you and we will make sure this lovely message gets back to Brigita.

“I just wish to express my sincere thanks to myCare and the team for everything you did for Mum. She looked forward to her carers visiting each day and special thanks must go to her regular carers who looked after her with so much respect, dignity, and tenderness and made her final days so peaceful. “

“I’d like to thank myCare for the support they provide to Mum, we feel like the carer is part of the family.”
