Jean* is an elderly lady who lives with her husband in the Midlands. Jean is the main carer for Derek* as he recently had a mild stroke.
Jean’s son wanted to pay fro the couple to have care services but they were both adamant that they would be able to cope. Jean’s son suspected that their resistance was due to a generational feeling of pride and so continued to push for some kind of service to assist his mother with her increased workload.
Eventually Jean’s son managed to persuade his mother to have an hour of help each week and so called Blue Ribbon to organise an assessment.
Jean’s care requirements
Jean’s local office manager called to see Jean on a very informal basis as she was aware of the reluctance to accept any help. The manager explained the Clean & Assist service and how the company would provide a member of staff to provide a bit of help with any housework.
How Blue Ribbon help Jean
A home care worker began visiting Jean on a Thursday afternoon for one hour to help with tidying the house. After a few week’s Jean told her son what a great help the carer was and asked if it would be possible to have her visit for two hours instead of one so they could get more done. After a few more weeks Blue Ribbon was visiting twice a week to help with cleaning and shopping.
Clean & assist is a very good introductory service if you or someone you love is finding it difficult to accept outside help.
