Nursing care for coronavirus
During the coronavirus pandemic, you or your loved one may need to self-isolate at home, which can be especially unsettling if there are complex healthcare needs that require regular support. Here at Helping Hands, we work with over 60 clinical commissioning groups across the UK, as well as a network of case managers and solicitors to ensure that we can continue to provide safe and reliable nursing care in these times where it’s needed most.
We have an expert team of clinical nurses – each registered with the Nursing & Midwifery Council – with extensive clinical experience from within the NHS. To ensure that you have the support you need to feel safe at home amidst the coronavirus outbreak, our nursing team will provide safe face-to-face assessments, hand-select the expert carers that are best suited to your needs and ensure continuity of care to bring peace of mind to you and your loved ones.
We understand that no two cases are the same, especially if you’re living with complex healthcare requirements. That’s why our nursing team place a special focus on the individual, developing safe and tailored home care packages to enable independent living at home during your period of self-isolation and every day thereafter.
If you’d like to discuss your needs and talk through the different options available, our friendly customer services team are here to help. It may be that you’re looking for support for yourself as you’re unable to leave your home for a number of weeks, or perhaps you’re unable to fully support your loved one throughout the coronavirus outbreak. Contact us today for more information.

Supporting your isolated living with nursing care
Here at Helping Hands, our care is completely focused around you and your independence – regardless of your circumstances. However, we understand that the recent government guidelines may have caused you to have to change some of your routines and preferences for the time being.
But despite everything that’s going on in the world, that doesn’t mean you have to compromise on your care or wellbeing. With experience in supporting people with progressive neurological conditions through to acquired brain or spinal cord injuries, our registered nurses are specialised in tracheostomy care, ventilator care, gastrostomy and complex continence needs, including catheter and stoma care. Focusing entirely on you and your needs, you can rest assured that we’ll provide the support you need so that you can continue to live safely and comfortably at home.
Expert care during the coronavirus outbreak
Our team of expert nurses bring extensive clinical knowledge and experience to our nursing care, working with you, your doctor, social services and occupational therapists to ensure that you have everything you need.
Whether you need a visiting carer to drop in on a regular basis and bring groceries and prescriptions or round-the-clock support from a live-in carer, our accredited nursing care experts can guide you through the options available to you.
If you are living with more complex healthcare requirements that require 24-hour support, there are lots of benefits and reassurances to our live-in care service, particularly during this time. Living with you in your home, your carer will only need to leave the house to collect any groceries or vital prescriptions and will be a constant source of comfort and support throughout the coronavirus outbreak and beyond.
Arranging care during Covid-19
Whether you’re self-isolating at home to reduce your risk of infection or you’ve recently been discharged from hospital and would like some support to help you readjust to life at home, our dedicated care team are here to help you with whatever it is you need throughout the coronavirus outbreak.
If you’d like to speak to a member of our team about your care needs, please do not hesitate to get in touch. A member of our nursing care team will then visit you at home to get a full picture of your requirements and the type of care you’re looking for.
We’ll then work with you to select a carer who is most suited to your needs, as well as assess any additional mobility aids or adaptations that may be needed at your home.
We can also quickly arrange emergency support if your regular caregiver becomes unwell and needs to self-isolate or if you are quickly discharged from hospital and in need of urgent assistance. We can usually arrange for a carer to be with you within 24 hours of your enquiry, so you never have to go without care.
