Information for Expert Care Professionals
With social care budgets facing increasing pressure, live-in care is becoming increasingly popular as a lower cost alternative to residential care.
Live-in care from Helping Hands is a full-time home care solution that enables people to live in their own homes, supported by a fully trained assistant who works to an individual support plan. As the support is completely tailored and is outcomes based, individuals retain their independence and make choices about how to live their lives.
We work closely with social and health care professionals, including over 70 local authorities, to deliver support aimed at independent living and improved quality of life, medical or post-operative rehabilitation, and end of life care at home.
We are currently working on a number of partnership projects with transition & adult social care teams, focused on moving people out of residential care.
