Why choose our Bolton elderly care team?
Most people reach an age when they require some extra support to maintain their quality of life and continue living a safe and comfortable lifestyle. Many elderly people are now choosing to remain living at home in their later years, rather than moving into residential care. Bolton home care allows elderly people to keep their independence and remain living in the place they know and love – their home and community.
Bolton elderly support from Helping Hands
With over 30 years of experience, we have expertise in providing the highest standard of elderly care. All of our carers are selected based on their passion for supporting seniors to lead independent and happy lives at any age.
Every Helping Hands carer completes a fully-regulated training programme at our very own Centre of Excellence – the first in the UK to be endorsed by Skills for Care. This is followed by regular ongoing training to update their skills and knowledge. When you choose Helping Hands, you can rest assured that your loved one will receive the highest level of care and support available. Our focus is to make a real difference by helping elderly people live the lives they want in the place they know and love.
Our Bolton care team offers two main types of elderly home care – visiting care and live-in care. Visiting care support can be arranged for as little as 30 minutes to several visits a week. A visiting care plan will be tailored to your loved one’s exact needs and will be amended whenever these change. This will ensure that they are always receiving the best level of care.
On the other hand, live-in care involves a specialist carer moving into your loved one’s home to provide them with full-time support and companionship. This is ideal for elderly people requiring a higher level of support, such as those with complex health conditions like dementia or Parkinson’s disease. Having 24/7 support gives families peace of mind knowing that a dedicated carer is always on hand to provide their loved one with the support they need.
Elderly home care in Bolton
As people get older, they often develop health conditions that make it challenging to complete their usual tasks and routines. You may notice that an elderly family member is finding it difficult to carry out daily activities such as cooking or cleaning, for example. In these circumstances, visiting home care can be arranged to provide extra support and enable your loved one to remain living safely and comfortably at home.
Elderly care is designed uniquely to support the needs and requirements of seniors as they age. A dedicated carer can assist with a variety of daily tasks including household chores, preparing meals, personal care, mobility assistance, and administering medication. Our carers can also provide an excellent source of companionship and emotional support to elderly people who are not able to get out and socialise. A dedicated carer will be carefully matched to your loved one, taking their personality and interests into account. This will ensure that your loved one finds it easy to build a rapport and develop a close bond with their regular carer. Helping Hands carers receive training on supporting elderly people emotionally and our carers often become a great companion and friend to the person they are supporting.
Immediate care assistance
We understand that situations can change instantly and leave you needing care at the last minute. For instance, you may find yourself pulled away from your caregiving duties unexpectedly due to illness or a family emergency. In these circumstances, Helping Hands are available to step in and provide expert care at short notice.
All of our carers receive training on providing emergency care and one of our carers can usually help if you find yourself needing urgent support. Care can typically be arranged in under 24 hours, although we can often organise this sooner if needed. This means you can have complete reassurance knowing that your loved one will always have continuity of care and have their needs met in any situation.
