Nursing-Led Care Plans From Helping Hands Carers
Helping Hands is proud to be a specialist and leading organisation of live-in care to meet complex care needs. Unlike many live-in care agencies, we employ a passionate nursing team and regional trainers who manage and supervise the medical interventions and medication administration our carers can provide. Sometimes called a Personal Assistant or PA carer, we work closely with customers, their families and existing professionals to ensure that personal care needs are met and lifestyles maintained.
Our carers are able to deliver specialist nursing support including gastrostomy management, PEG feeding, insulin administration and continence care. Medical support includes:
- Intermittent catheterisation
- Peristeen – rectal irrigation
- Suppositories and digital stimulation for bowel management
- Bladder washout
- Urethral and Supra pubic catheter
- CPAP, BiPAP and VPAP ventilation
- Cough assist
- Diabetes blood sugar monitoring
- Stoma – ileostomy, colostomy, urostomy
- PEG inc bolus and continuous
- Insulin injections
Our Registered Nurse and local care service managers work with GPs, local hospitals and healthcare professionals to ensure a cohesive, multi-discipline care plan is in place. Carers are chosen by the customer and their family based on his or her care knowledge and experience, but also on their personalities and personal ‘fit’ which we wholeheartedly believe can really make a difference. It is this complete involvement of the family, person-centred approach and determination to look after the whole person both physically and emotionally that sets Helping Hands apart.

Insulin dependency doesn’t stop Gary. His No.1 priority is to not let his condition get in the way of his life and why should it! With his Helping Hands live-in carer there is no more waiting around for the District Nurse to give his intermittent bowel care and his timed insulin injections happen on time and on the go – wherever they are. Gary wants life and he’s got it.
Part of the Helping Hands commitment to our customers is to ensure that each and every one of our carers is closely monitored through meetings with their care manager, Registered Nurse and regional trainers, and where needed, customer-specific training is given to ensure the carer can do the best job possible. Our service evolves with the customer so we can provide sustainable support in the home.
