Our branch providing home care in Bexley includes a specialist team of carers that are committed to improving the
lives of people in Bexley and the surrounding areas. Our Bexley team offers an extensive range of home care services that can be customised to suit your individual care needs. We provide two types of home care – visiting care and live-in care. Visiting care can involve everything from a short 30-minute visit a week to one or more visits a day. Live-in care can provide an excellent alternative to residential care and is ideal for people with complex health conditions requiring intensive support. Here are some of the home care services offered by our Bexley branch:
Millions of people in the UK are responsible for caring for a loved one. In some cases, this may simply involve helping an elderly relative with household chores or running errands. Whereas, other carers move family members into their homes to provide continuous support. Caring for a loved one is rewarding, but it is also demanding. For that reason, you must take a break every now and then to unwind and recharge. It is important that carers make their health and wellbeing a priority and invest in self-care. Our respite care services enable carers to take a much-needed break and enjoy some time away from their caregiving responsibilities. Taking advantage of respite services is also a fantastic way to sample the quality of care in your local area. This means you never have to worry about your loved one being left without care in an emergency.
Most people require some support as they get older and you may notice that a loved one is finding their daily activities more challenging. A home carer can be brought in to make an elderly person’s life easier by assisting with activities such as cooking or housework. Having this dedicated one-to-one support allows elderly people to remain living in a safe and comfortable environment. Our elderly carers are passionate about helping elderly people live the life they want in the place they feel most comfortable – their home. We also offer nurse-supported care to support elderly people with health conditions such as dementia or Parkinson’s.
Dementia is a widespread health condition affecting thousands of people across the UK. Receiving a dementia diagnosis can be extremely distressing, but it’s important to know that you’re not alone. As one of the UK’s leading dementia home care providers, our team has more than 30 years of experience caring for people with dementia. We are also part of the Dementia Action Alliance, along with other specialist organisations. At Helping Hands, we are fully committed to providing the highest standards of dementia care and improving the lives of those with the condition.
All Helping Hands carers complete extensive training and assessments at our very own Centre of Excellence – the first of its kind to be accredited in the UK. As mentioned earlier, our training is fully regulated by the CQC and the CIW. This means you can have full confidence in the quality and efficiency of our home care services. As a family-led company, we take a personal approach to care and treat every customer as an individual. We will take the time to get to know your loved one and work with you to create a unique care plan that matches their needs.
