Care in the home

Record numbers of babies born and a rapidly ageing population is giving rise to demand for home healthcare services, according to local providers. Sublime Home Healthcare offers qualified nurses with a minimum of two years’ hospital experience to provide a range of healthcare services in the home, from postnatal visits to check mum and baby are doing well, to care of the elderly and post-operative care for patients of all ages. All nurses complete on-the-job training and shadowing to ensure service is top-notch and the company is fully licensed by Dubai Health Authority. Prices vary according to services required. www.sublimehomecare.com

Time to cleanse

If you’re feeling tired, sluggish and in need of an overhaul, consider a cleanse from health food specialists Wild & The Moon. Offering one-, three-, five- and seven-day cleanses (from Dh330-Dh1,990) featuring cold-pressed juices, nut milks and elixirs, the cleanses ensure your body gets time to rest, recuperate and rebalance while still getting the most direct bio-available nutrients it needs. Or, if you’re looking for a longer-term plan, the team will be happy to discuss with you and tailor-make a programme to suit. www.wildandthemoon.com
