Maintaining independence is important to everyone, but if you’re living with additional support needs it can make being independent that bit more difficult. If you or a loved one is living with physical or mental disabilities that mean living on their own is more difficult, they may feel that they have no choice but to move into a care home, but that couldn’t further from the truth. By having supported living or home care in Barnet from Helping Hands, you get to remain living in the home you love or perhaps even move into your own home for the first time. Our care and support comes on both a visiting and live-in care basis, all fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and the Care Inspectorate Wales, meaning you will all be reassured by the high standards we deliver.
No matter how complex your everyday routine is, we can be there for you. We’ve been supporting people to remain living the way they want to in their homes since we were established in 1989, whether you need us for a few hours a week or around the clock. Our carers pride themselves on providing the highest quality support to all of our customers, regardless of the condition they’re living with, and because our carers are knowledgeable and experienced they’ll be able to support you with every aspect of your daily routine.
You may be someone who enjoys the outdoors or perhaps you’re a homebody. However you like to live it’s important that you get to continue doing so, and not have to fit into someone else’s idea of living, which is what might happen if you move into a care home. We believe in personalised one-to-one care, which you can only get at home as care homes simply don’t have the staff ratio to offer that kind of service. Our carers can help you with every aspect of your daily routine, such as your mobility, housework, personal care, meal preparation, and going out into the local community.
Our carers are chosen specifically because they put other people first and have natural qualities of compassion and kindness. We offer a comprehensive programme of instruction and ongoing training to everyone who works at Helping Hands, meaning that they get to continually develop their skills and then apply that to the support they’re giving their customers. We offer qualifications to those who are keen to take them but even without, everyone has a suite of learning that they undertake as part of their ongoing role. We are proud of the fact that so many of our carers choose to stay with us and develop a career, and we’ve got managers working for us who have worked their way up and are now motivating the next generation of carers.
