A Little Care Goes a Long Way

Why we do what we do at Norvic

Working in Homecare is not for everyone, but for those with the gifts, compassion and tenacity to do it; it is extremely rewarding. Our nurses and carers play an active role in the health, happiness and wellbeing of our Service Users, as well as their families and loved ones.

So, why do we do what we do, and what impact does it make?

Peace of Mind

Knowing that a Service User will receive regular visits from an experienced carer provides a sense of security, both for them and for those who know them. Whatever someone needs, we are ready with the right support: our team has the experience to accommodate for different types of care, including support for dementia, palliative, mental health, learning difficulties, autism, acquired brain or spinal injuries and people who have suffered a stroke.

Dignity & Security

Our carers assist our Service Users in all the day-to-day things they may no longer be able to safely do without help. This includes getting in and out of bed or chairs, maintaining hygiene and a clean, unobstructed home, eating meals and tackling everyday chores. These are not just tasks that ‘need doing’ – we emphasise assisting our Users in a way that protects their privacy and dignity, enabling them to feel empowered and, most importantly, still themselves. This support not only protects our Service Users from risk – it also supports their mental health and happiness.

Companionship

We all like some alone time, but being alone can take a toll if we don’t have the power to head out and see people. We look to build trust and friendship with our Service Users: we want them to be happy with the person in their home, and for visits to be welcome company. Staying social is essential for maintaining mental health, and it can have a positive impact on physical health too! Where possible, we also encourage our Service Users to head out or take part in activities, if they are able.

Helping Young & Old

Many of our of Service Users are older people, but some are young adults. Whether through physical or mental health, many young people can find themselves needing support. This care can be at home, or accompanying young people to events and appointments.

There are so many life challenges in growing up that we all face: we do what we can to help our young Service Users navigate any extra challenges, and we love to see them grow in confidence.

What we do isn’t easy, but it is rewarding, and we always need new carers to join our team. If you are interested in becoming an agency nurse or healthcare support worker in the Norfolk & Suffolk area, take a look at our vacancies.
