Mobility care at home

At Prestige Nursing & Care we believe that people who require mobility support should be able to live a fulfilled and independent life with the right care in place, tailored to their individual needs

For over 75 years, we have supported individuals who require mobility care to enjoy greater independence and improved quality of life in their own homes and communities. We are trusted by families up and down the country to provide flexible care that evolves to meet the changing needs of those we care for.

Regardless of your circumstances, our bespoke and individualised mobility care can help you regain as much mobility and independence as possible, so that you can better enjoy your home, favourite activities and local community for all of life.

Your Home is Best for Mobility Care

We know from our experience in supporting thousands of people and their families that when faced with the prospect of needing long-term mobility care, most people would prefer to stay in the safety and familiarity of their own treasured home.

A move away from home can lead to significant stress and worry at any stage of life, but it can be especially difficult for people that require specialist support to live well. Having routines imposed on how you live, leaving your loved ones, and feeling isolated from family and friends or your local community are all common concerns experienced by those facing a move into a care home or specialist care setting.

Staying at home with mobility care means that you can continue to live life your way, whilst benefiting from one-to-one care provided by a competent and compassionate carer. Our carers focus on ensuring your home is safe whilst effectively managing your mobility care needs, so you can have an improved quality of life with enhanced well-being. We know from experience this provides much reassurance and peace of mind for all the family.

What is Mobility Care for Older People?

The physical challenges experienced as we get older can impact daily life. Muscle weakness, joint problems, pain, disease, and neurological difficulties can all contribute to mobility problems. Sometimes several mild problems combine and occur simultaneously, affecting mobility.

Those in their later years are at more risk of falling, resulting in injury and sometimes periods of hospitalisation. Frequent falls can significantly reduce a person’s mobility and movement, as well as their confidence to complete day-to-day tasks and generally enjoy life.

Mobility care at home enriches a person with the right level of care and support to ensure they live as independently as possible, whilst reducing the risk of falling and ensuring a person’s confidence and well-being is promoted.

What is Mobility Care for Children and Young Adults?

Children and young adults with mobility problems, also known as motor problems, may have difficulty with sitting, standing and walking and may need the support of others or mobility aids to get around.

We have a wealth of experience in caring for children with cerebral palsy which causes impaired muscle tone and movement which can lead to spastic or flaccid muscles, impaired reflexes, poor coordination, involuntary movements, poor posture and impaired balance. Any one of these components affects how a child can move and get from one place to another.

At Prestige Nursing & Care, we work in partnership with other healthcare professionals involved in our client’s care, including occupational therapists and physiotherapists. Our carers follow the programme of care to enhance and enable children’s participation in daily tasks by helping them adapt to the challenges they face, whether from long-term illness, developmental impairment, or disability.

We help and support our clients to achieve set mobility goals, such as being able to walk with an assistive device, use adaptive equipment, stretching and other activities used in physical therapy to give children greater independence, physical function, and ultimately more mobility.

How Can Mobility Care Help?

  • Enjoy greater independence to safely mobilise around your home with the assurance that a helping hand is always available, should you need it.
  • Reduced risk of falls and injuries thanks to one-to-one, dedicated support from an expertly trained carer.
  • A carer can help reduce the burden of domestic chores, giving you more time and freedom to do what you love.
  • If mobility challenges prevent you from cooking or enjoying meals, our carers can prepare tasty and nutritionally-balanced food according to your preferences.
  • Receive support from a carer experienced in the practicalities of mobility care, such as using hosting equipment, wheelchairs and other mobility aids.
  • We enjoy a close working relationship with occupational therapists and physiotherapists that can create a tailored plan of support to improve your mobility.
  • Our carers can accompany you on trips out of your home so that your mobility challenges don’t prevent you from enjoying what your community has to offer.

Our Approach to Mobility Care at Home

At Prestige Nursing & Care, we provide a care and support package that enables you to live a happy and fulfilled life in the comfort of your own home. The mobility care we provide will be guided by you and tailored to your needs, giving you choice over how you live your life and the support you want. Our carers are there to enhance and enable your mobility so that you approach day-to-day tasks with confidence, enjoy activities and socialise.

Our sensitive and encouraging carers will focus on supporting you with your mobility concerns in the following ways:

Safe Movement Around Your Home and Local Community

Our carers are highly trained in moving and handling and are on hand to ensure you move around safely, supporting you to use the stairs, transferring to and from a wheelchair if you have one or assisting with other mobility aids. No mobility challenge is too much for our supportive carers.

Environment Risk Assessment

When we come to care for you, we will undertake a comprehensive assessment of your mobility care and support needs but will also conduct a risk assessment of your home to identify any hazards that could result in a fall. We will also identify any equipment that would help with your mobility, as well as provide recommendations on any home adaptations that would enable you to have a better quality of life in your home.

Positive risk taking

Our carers will effectively assess risks and work with clients who wish to take ‘positive risks’ so that you can have as much independence as possible and live life as you wish.

Enabling you to Stay Active

We know the importance of regular exercise to strengthen muscles and improve flexibility. Our carers will work closely with other healthcare professionals involved in your care to assist you to complete exercise regimes that support improved movement.

Monitoring your Weight and Ensuring a Healthy Diet

Periods of inactivity due to a fall or general frailty can result in extra weight being gained, which can put more stress on bones and joints. Our observant carers will proactively monitor your weight to ensure you maintain a healthy body mass index, whilst ensuring you have a balanced and nutritious diet.

Effective Medication Monitoring

Our carers are there to support your medication regime. They are also aware of the side effects caused by some medications that can impact your balance and alertness, and therefore your mobility.

We work collaboratively with our clients and their families to develop a thorough care and support plan that accurately reflects a person’s holistic needs. We also adopt a partnership approach to working with local authority partners, NHS services, multidisciplinary teams, therapists and other community bodies involved in a person’s care. This means we are well-informed so we can provide continuity of care ensuring the right care is in place at the right time, whilst responding efficiently to changing needs and strengthening care provision when required.

Competent and Compassionate Mobility Carers

When you choose Prestige Nursing & Care, you can be reassured that the carer who cares for you or your loved one is expertly trained to provide the support you need, to the high standards you should expect. All carers that join us complete our induction training programme, which goes above mandatory requirements.

We adopt a bespoke approach to training that ensures our carers have the knowledge, skills and aptitude to deliver high-quality home care that meets the needs of our clients. If a client is living with a condition that affects their mobility, requires assistance with mobility after a stroke or requires mobility care due to general frailty, we will ensure they have all the training and support they need to provide effective care.

We are very proud of our carers – each and every one of them is dedicated to providing compassionate, sensitive and dignified mobility care at home which means our clients live a fulfilled and meaningful life, with independence and choice, for all of life.

Clinical Excellence at Prestige Nursing & Care

Clinical excellence is at the heart of our culture and approach to service delivery at Prestige Nursing & Care. Our nurse-led home care service is monitored and supported by our experienced regional nursing teams.

Our team of qualified regional nurses are registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC). Each holds a registered nursing qualification in at least one nursing specialism, including general adult nursing, learning and disability nursing, mental health nursing and children’s nursing. They enable the planning and delivery of safe and effective complex care to our clients, that is focused on ensuring the best possible care experience for our clients and their families.

Our nurses work in partnership with our care co-ordinators, carers, clients and families to identify specific care needs and plan the most appropriate care provision, whilst ensuring all our carers have the skills to deliver high standards of nurse-led care. They also provide families with ongoing advice and continual support to ensure they feel reassured about the service we provide.

How we provide Care at Home for those who need Mobility Care

Our trusted and established care at home service is provided in the following ways for someone living with mobility concerns:

  • Hourly care or visiting care is for those who need care and support with tasks of daily living or clinical care at certain times during the day. Care at home can be provided from a 30-minute visit to as many hours/visits throughout the day as you require, one day or several days of the week depending on your care and support needs. For those who have complex needs, hourly care can be provided over a 24-hour period.
  • Respite care for those needing a short-term arrangement after hospital discharge to rehabilitate or when a family carer needs a break from their caring role. It is also an ideal service for families who wish to assess whether care at home is the right care choice for them.

Care Management Local to You

Our responsive and reliable mobility care service local to you means we can put care and support in place quickly and in many cases within 24 hours. Our local care expert will conduct a comprehensive assessment of your needs at home, in hospital or in any specialist care setting if you are awaiting discharge back to your own home enabling a plan of care and support to be developed that meets all your needs.

Our approach to care planning ensures we capture all your preferences and wishes so you can live a contented life in the comfort of your own home. We take time to find the carer that would best meet your care and support needs, making sure they are closely aligned with how you wish to live your life. Once care is in place, our local teams made up of care and clinical experts provide you, your family and our carer with an abundance of ongoing support, giving you peace of mind that you or your loved one is receiving the very best home care at home.

There are several organisations and charities in the UK that support those who need mobility care, including Age UK and Mobility.

The Benefits of a Fully-Managed and Regulated Service

Prestige Nursing & Care is not an agency. Unlike an introductory agency, we provide a fully managed and regulated care at home service, which means our clients, their families and our professional partners can be reassured that the care and support we provide with mobility care needs are of the very highest quality.

Our service is inspected by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) in England and the Scottish Care Inspectorate (SCI) in Scotland. We are proud that 96% of our inspected services have been rated as providing a ‘Good’ service, with 4% rated ‘Outstanding’ and all our services in Scotland have been awarded a five-star rating.

Cost of Mobility Care

The cost of mobility care is dependent on the level of care and support you require. If you are receiving our hourly mobility care, the overall cost will be determined by the number of visits and frequency of visits to you at home. Our experts will conduct a comprehensive assessment of your needs at your home, or in the hospital if you are awaiting discharge, to truly understand what you need and therefore how much mobility care at home will cost.

Responsive Local Teams with Nationwide Coverage

We provide mobility care in over 30 locations in the heart of communities across England and Scotland. The fully managed service we provide is highly responsive and our experts local to you can put care packages in place quickly, working in collaboration with local healthcare professionals, multidisciplinary teams, therapeutic care providers and other community support services. We know this holistic approach ensures our clients get the best out of life, for all of life.
