The Helping Hands Approach to supported living
Our exceptional supported living care and support is available to care for complex conditions such as spinal injuries, neurological conditions, other physical infirmities, and mental disabilities. With supported living care and support at home, you get to remain in the place you love, maintaining your independence, and living your life to your own preferences. Choosing supported living care at home as opposed to in a residential or nursing home can be a difficult decision to make. The thought of someone you don’t know coming into your home can be daunting – however it’s always going to be more preferable to uprooting from the home you love and moving into a place that isn’t your own. Many people aren’t aware that supported living care at home even exists, presuming they have no choice but to eventually move into a care home. Helping Hands have supported thousands of people to continue living in the home they love – despite the complexity of their condition – since we were established in 1989, which is why we can be so confident that our standards of care are unrivalled. Remaining in your own home for care means you’re always in control of your routine – you decide what you do, when you eat, and when you get up, if you want to get up at all that day. You might fancy a duvet day and that’s your right, and we’ll always respect your choices. Your carer will never try and tell you what to do or influence your decisions, you are an individual and we’ll always treat you as such. We only employ people who have naturally compassionate natures to become our carers, and we ensure they are equipped with all the practical skills they’ll need to help you enjoy your life at home and in your local community. Whether your carer is with you for an hour or two to give your family a break, or they’re there around the clock, you’ll always receive the same exceptional standards of care that we’re recognised for.
