Local charity supports Leicestershire families with grants for home care

It’s a worry when a loved one needs care at home. Not only is it difficult knowing what level of care is right but also the cost can be very high. Quality Life UK and the Blanche Sargeaunt Foundation have teamed up to provide the ideal solution.

Quality Life UK have been providing care to families across Leicestershire for over 6 years. Being based in Sutton Bonington they are ideally placed to serve the people of Loughborough and the surrounding villages.

They carefully select carers who will build a close and trusted relationship that meets the needs of every client. While private care allows clients to stay in their own home, it can be expensive and help with funding often isn’t available.

Quality Life UK have however, now joined forces with The Blanche Sargeaunt Foundation which is a Loughborough based charity committed to providing funding to those who are looking for high quality home care across Leicestershire.

This wonderful charity will pay grants of up to £20,000 per year to individuals who receive live-in care, night-time care or block hours day care through Quality Life UK. The funding means more people across the county can have access to the care that they need and as a result can stay living in their own homes for longer.

“Mum wanted to stay in the home she loves and with the Charity’s help we have been able to achieve this. I would like to say just how much we appreciate the support provided by The Blanche Sargeaunt Foundation and Quality Life UK.”

Grants are available for the following types of home care:

Live-in care

Live-in care involves a carefully selected carer living with an individual in their own home and providing round the clock care and support. The carer will attend to all of the individual’s care needs and manage the day to day running of the house including cooking, cleaning, washing and shopping. Livein care provides a real alternative to a care home and enables an individual to stay living in the comfort and familiarity of their own home for longer.

Night care

Sometimes, help is just needed during the nighttime. Quality Life UK can provide carers to help you get ready for bed in the evening, get up in the morning and everything in between. Knowing that someone is there if needed can be all the reassurance that is needed to help get a good night’s sleep.

Block hours day care

Some people just need some extra support at certain times of the day. Quality Life UK can arrange for carers to visit for several hours during the day to help with preparing meals, medication, bathing, mobility or whatever is required. Families can choose the right level of care for them, whether that’s a few hours or the whole working day.
