Helping people to manage at home and supporting them to be as independent as possible is at the heart of what we do at Helping Hands, and over the last 30 years we’ve helped thousands of people to do just that.
Our friendly team who provide home care in Aylesbury can support you with as few or as many hours of care as you need, all with the reassurance of professionally trained carers and a local branch who is consistently rated ‘Good’ by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), the regulatory body in England.
Perhaps your immediate reaction is ‘I don’t need care’, but we can all do with support from time to time, even with the smallest of tasks. You may only need a short visit to help you with housework, walking your dog or preparing a meal but with visits from 30 minutes, Sam and the team at Aylesbury will be able to support you. Perhaps you need a higher level of support? We can provide anything from companionship to clinical live-in care, and everything in between. Carers will visit at times to suit you, putting you firmly in control of your care journey and every aspect of it. Staying in your own home is vital to the majority of people requiring a level of care and with the Aylesbury team looking after all the details, you can be sure that you and your loved ones will be happy with your home care experience.
Perhaps you or a loved one are finding it difficult to complete everyday tasks lately? You shouldn’t struggle on, thinking you have no choice, as our friendly Aylesbury team can support you with any level of care you feel would be beneficial. Your care package will be tailored personally to you and encourage you to remain as independent as possible in your own home, so there will never be any question of someone ‘taking over’. It’s your home and things will continue to be done your way.
You may require some help with household tasks, personal care or meal preparation, or just welcome the idea of someone coming to see you one or more times a day. Your carer will come at a time to suit you; maybe just in time to put the kettle on for you! This type of care is ideal if you are struggling with vacuuming, dusting or other light housework because your carer can visit at a time that suits you and get those tricky tasks completed. They’re not just visiting for housework though; your carer can help you into or out of bed, carry out your hygiene needs and support your mobility.
You can even request an overnight carer, who will be on hand for you if you are anxious or in need of support during the night. This will be a reassuring comfort both to you and to any family members who may not live close enough to be able to support you themselves.
If you have been caring for a family member yourself then you are going to need to take a break from time to time. Perhaps you have a family at home that you’d like to spend some extra time with or even to go somewhere different for a welcome change of scenery. To know that your loved one is going to be cared for properly will be the difference between enjoying your break and being able to relax or not, so trust the Aylesbury team to provide respite care that will fit seamlessly into your existing routine.
We can’t predict in life when emergencies will occur, so it’s reassuring to know that if you need emergency care in place, Helping Hands Aylesbury can provide it. Perhaps you or your loved one is being discharged from hospital back into their own home, or you’re recovering from an illness. There is no need to feel you have to leave the home you love and enter residential care, even temporarily, as Helping Hands Aylesbury can send the support you need, directly to you in your own home.
Sam and her team at Aylesbury are waiting to advise and support you with your care options, meaning you can focus on the most important thing; living your life, in the place you love best. An individualised support plan will be created for you or your loved one, meaning you can be confident in Helping Hands to provide a knowledgeable and professional carer, who is fully Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) screened and trained to the highest standards. You can be confident in Helping Hands’ fully CQC-regulated care delivery to ensure every aspect of your care journey is taken care of.
