This is a regular bathing/shower service for people in their own homes. An experienced support worker will be provided to help the individual in and out of the bath/shower with minimal assistance. The service is normally provided on a weekly basis, although we can offer extra visits subject to staff availability.
A Field Care Supervisor will visit you at home (free of charge) to carry out a comprehensive assessment to ensure suitability for the bathability service and to advise on any bath/shower aids that may be required for safety. After the initial assessment you will be contacted and advised of a mutually convenient date and time that the service can be offered.
The cost for this service is normally based on a visit of up to 45 minute which is invoiced on a 4 weekly basis. Please contact us for our current charges.
