Caring for people in their own home, either a few hours a week or domiciliary, presents it’s own unique challenges when managing the risk of choking.
Additional consideration needs to be made – not only to the risks to the person being cared for but also the person providing the care.
Care is often provided by someone working alone. Carers can face the difficulties of managing an elderly person or an adult with additional needs single-handed in a choking emergency. And one where speed of response is critical to the outcome.
Can you do two things at once?
In contrast to a dedicated care setting, a carer may not have colleagues on hand to call 999 or to assist with choking Basic Life Support (BLS) should it be necessary.
This is likely to present an increased risk that should a choking emergency occur, the outcome will not be a successful one.
Placing a Dechoker in the individual’s own home ensures it is immediately accessible by a carer in a event of choking emergency.
