Why choose home care at Helping Hands Bath?
Helping Hands are industry leaders when it comes to caring for people in their own homes and having been established for over 30 years, we know how to support people effectively and compassionately. You might need help with housework, meal preparation or more in-depth clinical support, but with visits from 30 minutes, Helping Hands Bath will be able to help you live as independently as possible, remaining in the home you love.
Our flexible, professional carers will fit around you and your lifestyle, meaning that if your circumstances change, your care can be adapted seamlessly. You can trust us to keep you at the centre of your own care journey, meaning that you never have to worry about losing control of your routine.
What’s included with home care at Helping Hands?
Our flexible care and support mean that no matter what your condition or circumstances, we can help. You might just need someone to support you on your daily walk or taking your pet around the neighbourhood, or maybe you enjoy visiting Bath’s many sites of historic importance. With visits from 30 minutes, you can rest assured that the Bath team will place you firmly at the centre of your care experience, your support plan being flexibly updated every time you want something changed. Our dedicated carers will be able to support you with meal preparation, light housework, mobility support, medication administration and much more, and being supported in the home you love is also beneficial, as it means care comes to you, rather than you having to go elsewhere. Therefore, you get to stay with the people and animals you love, in the place you feel most secure.
Why you may need home care
None of us ever like to ask for help, but sometimes the time comes when we just can’t manage things on our own anymore. It can be daunting at the thought of having a stranger coming into your home, yet all of our carers are fully Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checked and highly skilled, so you can be reassured that you or your loved one will be in the best possible hands.
Carers for limited hour visits
Perhaps you would like to take a gentle walk every day, but you’re concerned about your mobility, or you might need some support getting in and out of bed. Whatever your circumstances, our friendly and experienced carers will visit you as often as your support plan dictates, meaning that you and your loved ones can relax in the knowledge that you’re being supported. Perhaps you or a loved one are living with dementia, a spinal injury or long-term health condition? Our carers can support you with clinical routines too, so that your every need is taken care of, regardless of how many or few visits you would like every day. Perhaps it’s the overnight times that you find difficult and would like the reassurance of someone being with you during the quieter hours? We can supply care for whatever hours of the day or night you require, just talk to the Bath team to find out more information.
Intermittent long-term visits
Perhaps you are the primary carer for a family member and need to take a break? You may wish to reconnect with your partner, spend time with your children or go on a family holiday. You can be reassured that the team at Helping Hands Bath will be able to care for your loved one, respecting their routines and preferences and keeping them safe while you’re away. This can give you peace of mind and an opportunity to relax, while spending time focussing on yourself for a while.
Carers for immediate situations
Life can be unpredictable by nature, which is why it can be hard to predict a time when we might require care. However, sometimes emergencies happen, and it can be reassuring to know that if you needed a carer quickly, the Bath team will be able to help. Perhaps it’s an unexpected hospital discharge, care after a fall, or a deterioration of a long-term condition that means your loved one requires care in a hurry, but regardless of the reason, the team at Bath can get a carer into your home quickly, sometimes in less than 24 hours.
Home carers in Bath
Gizelle and her team at Bath will support you with every aspect of your loved one’s care journey, from first enquiry through to delivery of care. Helping Hands is not an agency; we recruit, select and train all our carers in-house and employ them directly, which leads to carers who feel valued and love their job even more! Additionally, our carers undertake intensive training before they ever visit our customers, in manual handling, medication administration, safeguarding and more, as well as ongoing development throughout their employment, so you can be confident that your carers are always up to date with the latest care developments. Our Bath branch is also fully accredited and regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), demonstrating our levels of professionalism and high standards of quality.
