What’s included with home care at Helping Hands?
Helping Hands is all about providing flexible, tailored care that works around your unique lifestyle and needs. We know that no two people are the same, and that’s why we never offer one-size-fits-all solutions. Our two main services are live-in care, where a carer lives in the home and is always at hand, and visiting care, which is where the carer calls at intervals according to your preferences. That could be a daily visit for several hours, or as little as a 30-minute check in once a week – it’s up to you.
We also provide overnight care, emergency and quick start care (where we send help over within 24 hours of you reaching out to us), respite care and nurse-supported care where a little extra help with things like medications might be needed.
Respite Care across Accrington
Being carers ourselves, we know that occasionally, you need a rest and to step away from care duties to recharge your batteries. Our respite care services are designed for those who need a little extra support when their normal carers aren’t available, whether that’s because they’re poorly, on holiday, or tending to an urgent family matter elsewhere.
A respite carer can be a lifesaver for those moments when things don’t quite go according to plan. We’ll make sure that a properly trained and friendly care worker is there to get things sorted out, so that you have one less thing to worry about.
Accrington Elderly Care
Most of our clientele are elderly people and seniors who have found that with age, some day-to-day tasks are not quite as easy as they used to be. It’s understandable that not everyone needs to move to a residential care home facility, and many older folks might worry that their independence might be stifled should they seek out care at home. We like to assure all our customers that we work hard to provide elderly care that fits around you, so that you can get on with living the life you want to live, the way you want to live it. You might need help with daily errands, mobility around the home, a helping hand with fetching prescriptions or organizing medications, someone to walk the dog or catch up on the housework, or even a friendly face who can take care of the evening meal and get the shopping done.
We always make sure to match our carers with the people they work with – it’s important to us that there’s a real, personal connection. Sometimes, what’s needed is a little emotional support and kind reassurance, and our carers are experts in this area, too.
Dementia Care throughout Accrington
Compassionate and attentive dementia care is especially important for those elders living with the symptoms of dementia and conditions such as Alzheimer’s. Memory loss, changes in mood and physical symptoms can be challenging to deal with, and can bring significant amounts of distress. In our experience, residential care at a facility can be too impersonal for those experiencing dementia, and it can be disorienting to be cared for by a stream of different people instead of one trusted, familiar carer.
At Helping Hands, our carers genuinely want to make a difference, and derive enormous satisfaction from bringing some comfort and security to your loved one’s daily life, whatever their circumstances, and however their needs change from day to day.
