The right level of support from a fully trained carer
Nursing-led tracheostomy care from Helping Hands is designed to enable individuals who have undergone the procedure to manage their tracheostomies at home. We understand that it can take time to adapt to a tracheostomy tube, and that eating, talking, exercising, and keeping the tube clean and free of blockages can all be difficult at first.
We also know that living an independent lifestyle with a tracheostomy is easily achievable with the right support from our team of expert clinicians. Following an assessment with a clinical nurse manager, you’ll be matched with a care team who possess the correct experience and the right personality, to support you in your daily routine, because of the intensity of these needs across a 24-hour timescale more than one carer may be required to meet your needs safely in your own home.

Our carers will be trained by the clinical nurse trainer to ensure their competency to meet all of the clinical needs of tracheostomy hygiene, ensuring the correct fit of tube ties, and emergency management; fitting care seamlessly into the routine and leaving the customer free to focus on the things that matter: family, friends, and their favourite activities.
Our nursing led management is provided by a local clinical nurse trainer who has the expertise and knowledge to liaise with fellow professionals and provide the higher level of support, management skill and clinical intervention.
Airway management and tracheostomy care
If you are thinking of getting home care and you have a tracheotomy this can be a huge task. There will be a number of questions that you, your family and your professional team will have. Here at Helping Hands we aim to answer all of these questions and concerns.
All care staff involved in airway management support will receive intensive tracheostomy training. If our customers are on a mechanical ventilator, staff will receive additional ventilator care and management training before starting work ensuring that you can live your life safely at home.
This will be delivered by the Helping Hands clinical team. One of our specialist nurses will help support you and your package of care at home. This will include regular staff training and reviews and detailed support plans which you, your family and professional care team will be involved in.
