TWO sisters have launched a new home care service for villages in and around Times Territory.
"If we turn up and it’s supposed to be laundry day, but the person would rather go for a walk, then we see no problem in doing what they want."
Karry Omer and Susie Stefanou have opened OmerCare, which aims to help keep elderly people living within their own community and their own homes for as long as possible.
The firm, based in High Street, Codicote, provides a bespoke service including washing, dressing, meal preparation, companionship, shopping and end of life care.
But OmerCare differs from other home care companies, said Karry, because of its flexible approach to each client’s individual needs and wishes.
“We can do anything anyone fancies,” said Karry, a mum-of-three who has lived in Codicote since the age of six.
“If we turn up and it’s supposed to be laundry day, but the person would rather go for a walk, then we see no problem in doing what they want.”
The two sisters got the idea for the business after looking for home care help for their own relatives.
Karry said: “My sister was looking for care for her mother-in-law, and we were both looking for care for an aunt.
“I’m not criticising other care companies but we thought their services weren’t particularly personal.
“I also think because we know the village and the area, we know all the other organisations around here and can really help people stay connected to their community and stay in their home.”
OmerCare is registered with the Care Quality Commission, and all carers are fully CRB checked before joining.
The company is also looking for new carers. Experience is not necessary as training is provided.
