The Single-handed Care Summit
25 May – 22 June 2018
Your central point for advice on single-handed care
We’re passionate advocates for single-handed care. Here’s why.
When just one carer attends a service user, they are more likely to focus their full attention on that person. The interaction is more personal, and the client is naturally treated in a more dignified manner. The care worker is also less likely to become distracted, which reduces the risk of accidents.
But it’s not just the service user that benefits. If they are living in their own home, their family members benefit, too. If less carers are needed, we can minimise intrusion on the family.
Plus, by 2036, there’ll be 3.1 million over 85s in the UK. That’s double the number we have today. There’s also a predicted 60% rise in the number of older people expected to have care needs. So how will we cope with demand?
