If you’re recovering at home from an illness, accident or hospital stay, then intermediate support and home care in Barnsley from Helping Hands could make all the difference to your daily life. Our amazing carers will support you to remain in the home you love, so that there’s no need to think of moving into residential care. This can not only give you additional comfort but help to reassure your loved ones that you’re being fully supported.
If you’re finding certain household tasks more difficult while you’re recovering from your illness or accident, our carers can provide the extra support you need. We can offer visiting or live-in support on a temporary, short-term basis, or for as long as you need us. Staying at home for your care is much more preferable to uprooting into unfamiliar surroundings, as you’ll be able to keep precious pets and people close at hand, without the worry or inconvenience of prearranged visiting times.
Your package of intermediate care at home will be tailored to you, so that all your care needs are covered. You’ll also have a personalised support plan in your home that details exactly how you like your routine followed. That means whether you need us for household chores, personal care, meal preparation, or accompanying you to activities or appointments outside of your home, we can be there for you. Remaining at home for your care and support also helps to reduce pressure on the wider healthcare system, meaning you don’t need to be in hospital unnecessarily; or if your stay is unavoidable, having care already set up can get you home quicker.
Whether you choose our visiting or live-in service, your carer will be dedicated, compassionate, and wholly focussed on helping you to regain your former health. Even though intermediate care is only for a short duration, usually around six weeks, you and your loved ones will still want to know that you’re being supported by an exceptional carer, possibly as part of a wider healthcare team. We will ensure that your carer has all of the practical skills they need to support you, such as helping you with your mobility or administering medication, yet they’ll also have natural personal qualities of kindness and a caring nature. That’s because we only employ people who have the necessary natural skills to care for others, which we really believe cannot be taught; they have to be inherently part of someone’s personality. Because our care services are totally managed by us – we don’t have franchises – and fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission, you and your loved ones can be confident that we’ll always deliver the highest standards of care.
