Every day 6,000 people take on a caring responsibility – this equates to over 2 million people each year. The care sector continues to grow year on year, with demand constantly increasing amidst an ageing population and unprecedented times of need and support – continuing to deliver the highest possible standard of care remains our priority at Inter-County Nursing & Care Services.
We have been providing unparalleled care services since 2002. Our objective has remained the same – enabling those that need support to enjoy the familiarity and comfort of their own homes while continuing to take their place in the communities they know and love.
Our reputation for professionalism, reliability, flexibility, empathy and a friendly, caring approach to our clients and their families has enabled us to grow into the company we are today. We have branches in Chichester, Worthing and Christchurch.
Each of our branches are operated by a dedicated team who are highly knowledgeable and experienced in the care sector. Our skilled staff members will work with you to advise you and your relatives on the most suitable solutions for your care needs, providing you with specialised carers who will always put the best interests of their clients first. Our carers commitment to their clients ensures a personalised care service, completely tailored to their individual requirements, abilities and wishes.
We offer a broad range of services to suit most circumstances, with flexibility in mind, meaning that care plans can be changed, scaled up or down according to our clients evolving needs.
The services we offer include – Care at home, Live-in care, Dementia care, Respite & Short-term care, Palliative & End of Life care and Social Companionship. All of these services are delivered with the utmost respect, empathy and understanding.
It is understandably difficult for clients to accept that support is needed, but our incredible team of carers and managers work with empathy and sensitivity to meet your relatives needs, whilst ensuring their confidence and independence is not compromised. We can assist with routine tasks around the home, making sure that prescribed medication is taken correctly or preparing meals, for all of which they have the necessary training and experience.
When it comes to more sensitive needs such as personal hygiene, continence, bed routine and dressing, our carers always put your relative’s independence, dignity and personal choice first.
Our care services are flexible and can be entirely tailored to the individual needs and wishes of people using the service. Carers are allocated to provide support based on their skills, experience, qualifications and personality. Consistency is an important element of care that can sometimes be overlooked – but we understand the importance of matching carers to the people receiving care to ensure complete continuity, confidence and ultimately trust.
People need people, we are social creatures and companionship can be a lifeline for many people – COVID-19 illustrated the importance of a stroll in the park with a friend or a chat over a cup of tea. The profound psychological and physical effects of loneliness are very much commonplace amongst older people living alone, a friendly face and conversation goes a long way in providing comfort and support. Our care packages are designed to meet specific individual requirements, and to achieve this a full and detailed discussion takes place to accurately assess the appropriate level of care for each person-centred care plan. We take into consideration the person’s life history, experiences, likes, dislikes and individual abilities and skills. The Inter-County approach is individual-focused and driven by quality standards. We take into account a vast array of needs and preferences to ensure the highest level of individual care is provided.
