Helping Hands was founded in 1989 and we have spent the past 30 years supporting people all across the UK with a broad range of health conditions. Our goal is to help people live the lives they want in the place they feel most comfortable – their home and community. Our fully-regulated Ashford home care packages are tailored to meet your exact care requirements and can be updated as and when your needs change. We want you to live a fulfilling life on your terms, regardless of any health conditions that you face.
At Helping Hands, we specialise in home care and provide two main types of care – visiting care and live-in care. Our visiting care packages offer support at different intervals throughout the week. The level of care will be tailored to the needs of your loved one, with everything from a 30-minute visit to several hours of care a week available. A visiting carer can help with many daily tasks including cooking, household chores, and personal care. Live-in care is designed to provide your loved-one with around-the-clock support. A team of dedicated carers will be at your loved one’s home to provide support whenever they need it. This will give you peace of mind knowing that your loved one’s care needs are being met. Here are some of the other home care services that we offer in Ashford:
Taking care of a loved one can strengthen family bonds and be extremely rewarding. Large numbers of people in the UK provide care in some capacity. This could involve everything from doing a weekly shop for an elderly relative all the way to providing full-time care. It is important to acknowledge that caregiving can be physically and mentally draining. With that in mind, caregivers should take frequent breaks to relax and recharge. This is where our respite care services come in. One of our fully-trained carers can step in and provide care for your loved one. This will allow you free time to book a holiday, run errands, or socialise with other family members and friends. Respite care allows you to enjoy a well-deserved break from caregiving while feeling safe in the knowledge that your loved one’s care needs are being met.
The majority of people need some support as they grow older and you may notice that a loved one is finding their daily tasks more difficult. If this is the case, then a carer can be brought in to assist with daily activities. This support enables elderly people to remain living independently and safely at home. Visiting elderly care gives you the flexibility to choose the level of care based on the needs of your loved one. We offer everything from 30 minute weekly visits to several hours of support a day. On the other hand, live-in care involves a fully trained carer moving into your elderly loved one’s home to provide continuous support.
Dementia affects one in six people over the age of 80, so it’s likely that we will all be affected by the condition at some point in our lives. As a family-led company, we understand that it can be extremely difficult to decide how to care for a loved one with dementia. As one of the UK’s leading dementia care providers, our carers receive award-winning dementia care training and demonstrate a professional and compassionate approach to dementia care.
We understand that every situation is different. This is why we will take the time to get to know your loved one and provide care as unique as they are. Every Helping Hands carer receives fully-accredited training and assessments at our very own Centre of Excellence – the first of its kind to be accredited in the UK. We utilise our extensive care expertise to provide compassionate, professional care that is tailored to you as an individual. We are passionate about helping people take back control and live life on their terms.
