Peace of mind and practical help for people wishing to avail of our post-operative/illness recovery care.
Based on 25 years of experience in the caring profession, the Directors of Affinity Plus have created a home support service for all generations. Affinity Plus covers County Kildare and West Wicklow.
Our Recovery Care service can assist you with practical duties which you may find challenging during your recovery period. We pride ourselves in providing exceptional care for our clients. We ensure that our Home Support Assistants are matched with each client individually to enable peace of mind for the client and their family.
Discreet and Professional
The dignity and privacy of our clients is of the highest importance to us.
Our Home Support Assistant will arrive in an unbranded vehicle and will be dressed in smart, casual clothing ensuring complete discretion for our Recovery Care clients. Affinity Plus Home Support Assistants are Garda Vetted and trained to adhere to the highest standards possible.
What Recovery Care Involves
We can encourage and assist with your post-operative exercise programme as designed by your healthcare professional.
Through experience we have recognised that companionship can avoid social isolation, maintain social skills and increase a sense of purpose and well-being.
Our Home Support Assistants can assist the you with shopping and preparing meals during your recovery period.
Having support with domestic tasks can ease the anxiety of the client. We believe that your home is your haven and it is beneficial to the client to have a clean, safe and healthy living environment.
Sometimes this can become a chore for our clients. Although our service is non-medical we can encourage and prompt medication.
It is extremely important for overall health and well-being that high levels of hygiene and personal care are maintained. While we can complete full assistance with personal care, we try to allow the client to remain as independent as possible by also encouraging and assisting.
We can assist with bathing, bed-wash, dressing and toileting and incontinence care.
"Throughout history, 'tender loving care' has uniformly been recognised as a valuable element in healing"
Affinity Plus Recovery Care offers a Gold Package and a Platinum Package. Please see sample schedule below.
The number of visits per day or per week is listed and agreed in the selected care package. Typically, care recipients request Home Support for 5 - 7 days per week and 1 - 3 visits per day.
Let's get the day off to a great start! Our Home Support Assistants may help clients with getting out of bed, personal care, getting dressed and arranging breakfast.
The afternoon visit may involve some assistance with meal preparation, or some domestic tasks like hoovering. It can also be a great time of day for some exercise!
The closing visit of the day can be for practical help with the night time routine, a tidy up around the kitchen, and ensuring that the property is secured for the night.
