• Orchid Care – the Ideal Choice for Professional Referrals for Live in Care

    Medical professionals never switch off. Whether a patient comes in or goes home, their health and wellbeing are always at the top of your list. As someone who has taken the career path you have, you want to help them in any way possible. Of course, it’s impossible to be there at every minute of every day. So, what are your options?

    At Orchid Care, we believe we are the perfect partner for professionals in the live-in care sector. Thanks to our twenty-four, around the clock service, our employees can provide the care your patients/clients need in the Sussex area so that you don’t have to worry. Not only will this relieve the weight on your shoulders, it will also open up more time to see people who need your help.

    Our Qualifications

    Hiring a third-party always creates more questions. For example, how do you know that you can trust us to do the job? The answer is through our fully registered and insured services. Thanks to these, we can assure you of utmost professionalism, care and reliability at all times. Plus, we have an excellent team to fall back on when the going gets tough. We are an agency headed up by an exceptionally well-qualified and experienced team of professionals. Their backgrounds include:

    – the health care sector

    – social services within the NHS and Local Authority

    – nursing and live-in care

    Our live-in care services are monitored by Julie Wilson, a manager with twenty-four-years of experience. Although we opened to the public in 2010, our staff alone has over thirty-five years’ worth of experience. That means Julie accounts for more than 70% of the total and all of this experience can be at your disposal in considering how best to meet your clients’ needs.

    Partnership Credentials

    Of course, we understand a professional live-in care service requires more than qualifications. You need to be sure that the partnership will go without a hitch for the sake of the patient and your reputation. Orchid Care has been working with experts in Sussex within the healthcare sector for a long time, often helping patients discharging home from the hospital. Under these circumstances, we always respond promptly and maintain a healthy level of communication. It’s vital we don’t miss the fine details which can make the difference between a comfortable experience and a traumatic one.

    Not only that, but we are well-versed in the bureaucracy of the industry. Funding for care via the Direct Payments scheme isn’t a foreign concept so there won’t be any financial hold-ups.

    How It Works

    Moving a patient from a hospital bed to their home can be tricky. That’s why we oversee every part of the process to ensure it goes smoothly. To begin with, we will visit the individual on their ward and speak to them directly. It’s crucial for us to get a feel for their needs and wants before moving forward.

    Next, we gather as much information as possible. By talking with you, as well as patients, their family members and loved ones, we can decide on the discharge requirements. While we aim to do this speedily, we never put the client’s health at risk just to open up a spare bed.

    Finally, through liaising with the family, we will visit their home and research the route so that the transition is seamless. Once they are settled in, our live-in carers in Sussex help them with housekeeping, cooking and companionship. We try to cover every base to make our patients’ and clients’ lives as hassle-free as possible.

    Who Qualifies?

    Ward staff are the prime candidates as they have to struggle to meet the needs of patients requiring discharge on a daily basis. However, they are by no means the only professionals to which we cater to our service. As well as them, we also work with:

    – GPs

    – Psychiatrists

    – Social workers

    – District nurses

    – Occupational therapists

    Our team is committed to working with you to help to provide patients with a better quality of life. To this end, our live-in care options are quality and affordable too. Some patients experience substantial savings over residential care homes. Choose Orchid Care as your professional partner.
