We are a specialist nursing and care provider, supplying nurses, care assistants and support workers, all trained to the highest standard. Cocoon recognizes that all clients are unique and require a personalized approach. Therefore, we have two sides to our Care business; our specialist nurses who work with more complex needs, and our Companions for those who would like a more flexible approach to their care package.
Our carers are experienced, qualified nursing professionals. We also have specialists trained in physical and mental disabilities.
Our carers have a passion to provide our clients with the very best service and also want the best for your loved ones.
They are qualified in specialities including:
- Specialist Care
- Mental Health
- Physical Disability
- Acquired Brain Injury
- Spinal Injury
- Elderly Care
Cocoon can provide bespoke homecare support and services to enable you to continue living independently in the comfort of your own home and to enjoy your familiar surrounding area.
Sometimes we just need encouragement, someone to engage with us in order to maintain our emotional wellbeing – which is as important to our physical health.
With family and friends not always nearby to help fulfil this need, we have hand-picked and interviewed the very best carers and companions ourselves.
The qualities we look for are: empathy, a cheerful disposition, patience and above all kindness.
We offer a range of tailored services, designed to suit individual needs, whether that’s general companionship, help with regular trips to the shops or something more specialist, such as arthritis care, after stroke care, palliative care or dementia care.
Respite Home Care
This is temporary care for a loved one that allows the primary carer to have time away from their responsibilities or require some additional support with caring for your loved one. This avoids unnecessary stress by breaking from their routine and allows them to stay in the safety of their home.
Hospital Discharge Care
We believe that staying in hospital too long past treatment can be detrimental to your health both physically and emotionally. Not only does recovering at home lower the risk of secondary infection and deterioration in your mental wellbeing; our carers will be able to give practical and emotional support to help you transition back to health and regain your independence at home.
Studies have shown that those living with dementia who are treated at home, have greater health and wellbeing than those who are placed in unfamiliar surroundings. With over 100 conditions of the mind falling under the collective term dementia, the need for personalised care really is key.
Our dementia home care is provided by specially trained carers and is personalised to ensure that all the challenges associated with dementia can be dealt with. This will ensure that safety and security for your loved one can be provided within their own home.
We begin by inviting you to talk to one of our team about your symptoms to devise a plan that ensures we provide the in-home care that is perfectly tailored to you and your needs. We believe that one size fits all approach doesn’t work with Parkinson’s, as the progression of the disease will vary for each person affected. We also recognise that the family will be affected too, so we tailor our services to meet the needs of all involved.
Cocoon’s carers can provide bespoke support on a part time basis or as part of live- in care. They tackle medication, mobility and exercise, personal care, well-being, diet and nutrition. Our carers will also be able to help facilitate appropriate alternative therapies nearby.
Pallative – ‘Supporting you and your family’
All of our care professionals are trained in administering medicines and have strong local links to services which provide equipment that may help in managing symptoms, maintaining dignity and keeping clients as comfortable as possible.
In addition, for family members who don’t know what to expect, our carers are there to provide emotional support, guidance and suggestions. We’re able to talk you through what’s normal, so you’re not unnecessarily confused and alarmed at this challenging time.
