Why choose home care at Helping Hands Braintree?
Helping Hands have been caring for people in their own homes since 1989 and over the last thirty years we’ve supported thousands of customers to stay exactly where they want to be: at home. Our friendly team in Braintree can provide you with care from just 30 minutes once a week, so whatever you or a loved one needs support with we’ll be there. Perhaps you need support with light housework, caring for a pet or companionship? Or maybe you have more clinical needs and require anything up to full-time, live-in care? Regardless of the amount of care or carers needed, the team in Braintree will happily talk you through your options and produce a personalised support plan tailored around you.Request a callback Email us
What’s included with home care at Helping Hands?
Whether you would like some help with light housework, meal preparation or getting in and out of bed, our visiting carers can come to you for as little as 30 minutes or for as many visits as you need in a day. We can also provide you with a live-in carer if you or a loved-one have higher level needs that would benefit from having someone with you all the time. Our carers are flexible to your needs and will always put you at the centre of your care journey, ensuring your independence is encouraged at all times and your dignity is always protected.
Receiving care in your own home is highly beneficial as you get to stay in the place you love the most, surrounded by sentimental items, precious photographs and cherished memories, not to mention other loved ones. While it may sound initially unnerving to have someone you don’t know come into your home to care for you, there really is nothing to be worried about as all our carers are highly trained, Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) screened and very professional.
Why you may need home care
You may have noticed that certain tasks are becoming more difficult for you or a loved one lately; perhaps the vacuum seems heavier than it used to, or it takes you longer to get out of bed than before. This is perfectly natural, as we all need extra support at certain times in our life, whether due to ageing or because of a developing or ongoing condition. Our friendly team in Braintree will discuss your care options with you, in the comfort of your own home and at a time to suit you.
Carers for limited hour visits
A visiting carer can be with you for as little as 30 minutes or as long as you need. Before your care begins a member of the Braintree team will devise your personalised support plan in conjunction with you or your loved ones, to ensure that the level of care you are receiving is the right choice for your needs. Whether you need support with personal care, medication, shopping, attending appointments or going for a walk, your carer will be there for you as often as you need.
Perhaps you find that you don’t sleep as well as you used to, or that the hours of darkness cause you anxiety. With an overnight carer from Helping Hands you can rest in the knowledge that there will be someone with you through the night to keep you company when you can’t sleep and be a reassuring presence when you can.
Intermittent long-term visits
If you care for a loved one there will be times when you need to take a break, perhaps to spend time with your partner, kids or just to reconnect with yourself. A respite carer will mean that you can spend time away without the upheaval of your loved one going into a home, even for a short time. This reduces anxiety for you and your loved one, as they can stay in their own home and be cared for by well-trained and highly experienced carers, while you get a chance for a break or even a holiday.
Carers for immediate situations
The unexpected can happen at any time and sadly that sometimes means with our health too. We can’t predict what life will send our way, whether it’s an unforeseen discharge from hospital, the aftermath of a fall or a downturn in an existing health condition. Whatever the reason, you may need care in a hurry and that’s where the friendly team at Braintree will be invaluable; they’ll get care started for you in a matter of hours in some circumstances, so you can be reassured that your loved one is in safe hands.
