Christmas can be a magical time of the year when families get together and enjoy the midwinter festivities. But of course, Christmas can also cause additional stress and strain, especially if you have older relatives to care for. Mumby’s live in carers provide practical support as well as reassurance, companionship and compassion at this special time of the year. With a Mumby’s live in carer by their side your loved one will certainly not be lonely this Christmas.

Here are just some of the ways a Mumby’s live in carers can support your loved one.

Our live in carers provide practical support

Families have a lot on their plate at Christmas, from shopping for presents and the big feast, preparing and decorating the home, keeping little ones entertained and looking after older relatives. And this year it needs extra careful planning. Our live in carers can take care of the practical side of everyday life and the Christmas planning for your loved one in the relaxed environment of their own home. This leaves you the opportunity to get on with your preparations and enjoy quality time with your Christmas family bubble.

Our carers will take care of shopping, picking up prescriptions and everyday chores so you know that your loved one is well looked after over Christmas. They can also help your loved one to buy cards and presents online so they enjoy the gift of giving while remaining safe at home.

Our live in carers provide companionship

No one likes to think of their loved ones being alone at Christmas. While you might do your best to visit often, you may not be able to be with your loved one for the whole festive period. Our live in carers will be by your loved one’s side throughout the holiday season, helping them enjoy Christmas.

Mumby’s live in carers provide so much more than practical support. We carefully match your loved one with a carer who shares the same values and interests. Our carers are there to help your loved one enjoy fun and fulfilling activities. Whether your loved one wants to chat and reminisce, play card games and do puzzles, or enjoy a craft or hobby, our carers are there to support them.

When you choose a live in carer, close family members will be able to visit your loved one regularly. Your carer can also help your loved one with technologies that help them stay in touch with their wider circle of family and friends, too.

Making Christmas joyful and stress-free

Christmas can be stressful for older people for many reasons. They may struggle to join in with activities because of mobility issues, dementia or hearing or sight loss. Our highly trained live in carers can help arrange festive activities that your loved one can be a part of, ensuring they have a magical Christmas, too.

At this cold and dark time of year, older people can easily get depressed, malnourished and cold. Our live in carers will make sure your loved one’s home stays warm and cosy and will provide healthy, nourishing food as well as Christmas treats. They can also keep an eye on their mood and are trained to provide support for clients who may become depressed or anxious at this time of year.

Keep your loved one safe

During the coronavirus pandemic, we have put a range of protocols in place to keep our clients safe. Our carers can take care of all your loved one’s shopping and errands so they can stay safe at home. Our strict infection control practices protect your loved one and we have had no cases of COVID-19 in either our clients or staff.

Providing specialist live in carers

At Mumby’s, we provide specialist carers for a range of conditions. Christmas can be especially stressful for people living with dementia. Our carers will provide reassuring continuity and arrange activities your loved one can enjoy without feeling overwhelmed.

We can also provide nursing care for those with complex medical needs so that you can enjoy quality time with your loved one, knowing their health requirements have been met.

This year, at Mumby’s we have helped many families find their perfect live-in carer to support them in these difficult times. We have been fully operational throughout all lockdowns and restrictions, keeping our clients safe and well.
