CROSSROADS CARE EAST LANCASHIRE
A carer is a person of any age who provides unpaid care and support to a friend or family member who, due to their age, illness, disability, mental health problem or an addiction cannot cope without their help.
Crossroads Care East Lancashire wants every carer to be recognised, supported and offered services to help them maintain their own health and wellbeing.
Crossroads Care East Lancashire:
provides services that respond to the needs of carers and the people they support, offering them peace of mind and understanding.
We understand that our clients and their carers want to stay in their own homes and enjoy as much independence and quality of life as possible. We provide a variety of support such as:
Personal care – such as getting up out of bed, washing or dressing
Housekeeping or domestic work such as changing the bedding or vacuuming
Cooking or preparing meals
Many of our clients do not have family close to hand and therefore need support and companionship either at home or in other social or medical settings. We are able to provide a variety of support services such as sitting, help with social or hospital visits.
