At Right at Home Tyneside we feel that our care and support should extend beyond the Client’s home. Our Carers frequently go the extra mile to ensure Clients remain active and enjoy outings and events within their local community, or trips further afield that they are no longer able to make independently.
One of our earliest Clients, Doris enjoys frequent days out with our Carers as well as her Friday shop at Tesco.
“The care my sister receives from Right at Home Tyneside, is quite simply excellent. Her carers are exceptional. Their professionalism and care is outstanding. They make her laugh, they give her hugs, they sing and dance with her, they take her on outings, as well as looking after her every need, every day. She thinks of them as friends and looks forward to every visit from them.The business owner is very approachable, he also is very caring, nothing was too much trouble, and he was always available at any time.” Doris’ sister
Doris and Maureen met when we took them independently to a dementia cafe.They are now firm friends and our Carers regularly take them to visit each other or on community outings together.
Kevin has been supported by Right at Home Tyneside since early 2016 and had not been able to get out of his house, other than hospital visits, for just over two years. Outings this summer with the Right at Home team have included trips to Whitley Bay for fresh air and fish and chips!
“I really appreciate what Right at Home have done for me. Thank you once again” Kevin
Ray is paraplegic following an accident playing rugby as a 17 year old.

Allowing Ray to support his family and maintain independence.

One of our Clients with more complex needs, Enid is dependent on our Carers to ensure she retains an active life in the local community, visiting the local dementia cafes and community centre as well as regular trips to the coast, day centres, the Life Centre and more seasonal firework displays and carol services as well as church most Sundays.
Unable to now walk her dog Meg alone, Gill continues to enjoy regular twice daily trips to Jesmond Dene and the surrounding area with Meg and accompanied by our Carers.
Although experiencing advancing Alzheimer’s, Gill is supported fully and remains at home in familiar surroundings. Right at Home Tyneside provides full support from minor tasks such as changing light bulbs to arranging larger aspects of property maintenance as well as the usual care and assistance.
We have also worked closely with Gill’s representatives to secure additional health needs funding through the Newcastle Gateshead Continuing Health Care assessment process. This has reduced Gill’s personal contribution to her care costs by half.
