An Example of How We Help
Margaret had been managing well on her own, driving herself around and participating in Church interests. She has three children, but they are not local and find it hard to visit regularly. The house and garden were a little run down and there was the usual catalogue of aches and pains. Then Margaret had a car accident which meant she had to give up driving, and suddenly everything seemed too hard.
ILA At Home stepped in and helped the family understand that Margaret needed more help to stay safe and well in her own home and suggested how they could get more involved.
Independent Living Home Support for Elderly Parents
We engaged Margaret's local GP to improve pain relief for her hip and help her push for the option of an operation. We arranged for volunteer transport to get to Church and to help with shopping, and recommended help to clean the house, update the bathroom and fix a fence. This really helped Margaret’s spirits and we now visit regularly to take care of new challenges as they arise. Our home support adviser can also arrange elderly local support to help with chores around the house if it is needed.
We find compatible, long term home support workers to provide help in your home with housekeeping and domestic chores. Be it cooking, cleaning, ironing or simply sewing on a button, our people work with you to help make your life easier.

GPs believe it is difficult for older patients to identify and access the support they need to continue living safely and comfortably in their own home. This is not because of the actions or limitations of the patients themselves but because of the fragmentation and lack of co-ordination in services. The quality of community care available to the elderly is also lacking.

Working together for quality
Home Care For Elderly Parents
Independent Living Advisers provides the highest quality professional advice, recommends and organises wide ranging relevant services for our clients, but stops short of actually providing the services we recommend. We do however check that the service provided meets the expectation of the client, and our own high service standards.
Often our recommendation will result in an introduction and new business for a service provider.
If you are a provider of specific high quality services which will be relevent to the wider needs of our clients then we would like to hear from you. The advice we give to our clients is completely independent - so any discounts we negotiate with you will be passed on to our clients. Our decision to recommend is based on the quality of your service provision, and we will check that this is actually delivered.
In some cases our expectations for quality may exceed your current commercial service standard, and we will be interested in developing with you a higher standard service for our clients, even if this results in higher, but fair, fees paid by our clients. Right now we provide our services in Sussex, Surrey, West Kent, East Sussex, and nearby region.
