Coming to terms with a cancer diagnosis can be incredibly difficult, for both the person diagnosed, and their loved ones. If you’re struggling with everyday tasks post-diagnosis and you’re feeling that you’d appreciate some extra support at home, or if your family are struggling emotionally with the implications of your diagnosis then Helping Hands can be there for all of you. Our compassionate carers providing home care in Accrington will be able to support you with your everyday care needs, while ensuring your loved ones are being supported as you progress along your treatment journey.
Whether you’ve just received your diagnosis or you’ve been living with cancer for some time, your care journey will be unique to you. Everyone can need support at different stages of their life, whether they’re living with a serious condition or not, but when you’re receiving treatment for cancer you may need a little extra help with life’s everyday tasks. Our cancer care services could include keeping your house clean and tidy, helping you to launder the beds, preparing nutritious food, taking medication, or accompanying you to appointments.
We’ve been offering care and support to people across England and Wales since our foundation in 1989, and as we’ve grown, we’ve never lost sight of our values of kindness, compassion, and understanding. This is demonstrated by the person-centred approach we insist upon from everyone who works for us, meaning that you’ll always be at the centre of your care journey, whether you choose visiting or live-in care. Both of our services offer unrivalled standards of care delivery, whether you need us for an hour a week or around the clock. Your bespoke package of care will be designed around you and will be flexible enough to change as your needs do.
We only employ about 2% of the people who apply to join us, simply because we are so particular about the type of carers we want supporting our customers. We demand excellence every time from everyone who works for us, meaning you and your loved ones can be reassured that you’ll only ever receive the best care in your own home from us. We build on our carers’ existing skills to make sure that they are fully competent to support you with every aspect of your daily requirements, and because our services are flexible to your needs and fully regulated in England by the Care Quality Commission, you will always be confident with our standards of care delivery.
We have a contact method to suit everyone and their preferences, whether that’s chatting to us online, calling our friendly customer service team, or popping into your local branch. Our customer team are available seven days a week to answer your questions, or if you’d prefer, you can find your closest branch here.
