Why choose home care at Helping Hands Barnet?
For over 30 years, we have been providing person-centred care to thousands of people across England and Wales, and our CQC-accredited branch in Barnet is no different.
Led by Sophie and her team of professional carers, Helping Hands Barnet offer second-to-none home care that is centred around the individual and their preferences. No single support plan is the same for any of our customers; our care is bespoke and designed to enable you to remain independent, rather than take over and do everything for you.Request a callback Email us
What’s included with home care at Helping Hands?
Home care covers a variety of different scenarios and requirements – from dementia care and support for the elderly, to visiting care for short visits throughout the week to support you with the housework perhaps if you have a neurological condition that impedes your mobility. And because you decide what’s involved in your package of care, everything is tailored around your preferences.
Support at home isn’t just about the practicalities; we take a holistic approach to your care and ensure that your emotional and psychological needs are taken care of too. So, if you enjoy cooking but need someone to accompany you to the shops safely or if you enjoy catching up with a friend at your local park but need assistance with your mobility, our carers in Barnet can support you to do those things as well as personal care and housekeeping.
Do you need home care services?
Whether you need weekly visits to vacuum the floors and clean the surfaces or round-the-clock live in care support from a live-in carer, home care is designed to support you at home regardless of how little or often you need assistance. And because your support plan is flexible, we can adapt to your changing needs and work around your timetable.
Short term home care support
Some of our customers only require short care calls a couple of times a week to have someone check in on them to make sure they’re ok, perhaps taking the bins out, clean the bathroom and share a cup of tea with them. Visiting care enables you to have this type of non-intrusive regular support, with many of our customers preferring to call carers their support workers or personal assistants, particularly if they’re accompanying them out of the house. The Barnet team can continue to provide support overnight if you become particularly anxious during the evening, being there when you go to sleep and when you wake up in the morning for extra reassurance.
Intermittent long-term care at home
If you care for a loved one full time, it’s really important that you take the time to take a break. Not only does it allow you to take a well-earned rest, but it also gives you both space from one another and can become an integral part of your care routine. While you take a step back, respite care from the Barnet team can be arranged so that your loved one has exactly the right care that they would expect from you.
Immediate start carers
Sometimes without warning, situations crop up that require urgent attention, including the need for care. If you’ve just been discharged from hospital, your regular caregiver has been taken ill or your situation at home has drastically changed, emergency care can be put in place usually on the same day as your enquiry to us, giving everyone peace of mind that you have the support you need at what may be a distressing time. Our friendly carers will put your mind at ease and ensure you have everything you need to feel comfortable and safe at home.
