Services

We Provide A Wide Range Of Home Care & Support Services

How We Can Help You

Our experienced staff can help with issues such as loneliness and social isolation. We can offer the carer a home visit to sit with their loved one so that they can attend family gatherings, shopping trips, and have some much needed quality time alone.

Befriending Service

This service helps to address the needs of often isolated people who, due to ill health or lack of confidence, are to attend day centres or other community activities.

Our staff offer regular social contact and emotional support to people who are experiencing isolation and loneliness.

Referrals can be made by family members, neighbours, social services, health agencies or self-referral.

Each befriending relationship is different – we will go to great lengths to make sure that each service user has a befriender with whom they have a shared interest.

LONELINESS AFFECTS MORE THAN 1.2 MILLION OLDER PEOPLE IN THE UK

Dementia Awareness

We recently have had a few concerns regarding how some Care Agencies and Care Homes in Doncaster are dealing with people living with Dementia. 

We understand that not everyone has a full understanding of the condition, so as a result, we have decided to offer Dementia Awareness Sessions. 

Our intention is to deliver this to the staff at Agencies and Care Homes in order to provide them with more information and enable them to develop skills when working with people living with Dementia.

Companionship

Companionship is having someone you know and like with you, rather than being on your own.

For those people who are socially isolated and not able to
get out of the house, Inspire Doncaster provides a
companion service.

We can visit you in your home to sit and talk, play games or
just be there to keep you company – whatever you would
like to do.

STUDIES SHOW THAT SOCIAL SUPPORT PLAYS A SIGNIFICANT ROLE IN THE OVERALL HEALTH OF ELDERLY PEOPLE

Home Conversation

Social isolation and loneliness are most common in the elderly. Our Home Conversation service can include reminiscing which is especially beneficial for those affected by Dementia.

Conversation can help people express how they feel and relieve the symptoms of anxiety and depression. (Please note this is not a counselling service and it is recommended that expert advice is sought by visiting your GP)

IT IS ESTIMATED THAT THERE ARE AROUND 3.5 MILLION PEOPLE AGED 65+ LIVING ALONE IN THE UK

Activity Groups

We support people to attend community groups and stay with them, this helps with confidence and social skills. There are lots of groups like singing, music class, martial arts, drama, board games, cookery/baking, online computer games and swimming, teaching independent living and life skills.

Some activities serve multiple purposes. For example, some group activities can increase communication ability and help improve social interaction skills and should not stop someone from leading an active and enjoyable life.

Inspire’s Day Centres are an integrated day facility that also offers enhanced services such as active rehabilitation and Dementia services.

This service supports caregivers who need to take some time off on weekdays for urgent work commitments or to run errands.Our centres encourage those living with Dementia, the socially isolated and the elderly to engage in interactive activities such as regular exercises, interesting games and social activities.

Our Day Centres are held at the Starlight Rooms, Armthorpe and The Quaker Meeting Rooms, Doncaster.(Booking is required).

We provide a FREE door to door service in our cars to the day centre. We also support wheelchair users providing the person can transfer themselves into the car with little support. 

 

Our two Day Centres which normally operate on a Tuesday and Friday are temporarily closed due to the current situation. We hope to open them in the very near future.
