For over 30 years, Helping Hands has been providing compassionate and empathetic home care for our customers, ensuring they receive an exceptional level of care while respecting their usual routines. From as little as 30-minutes per week to several daily calls, our team providing home care in Brentwood are here to support you with anything you need, such as light housework, preparing meals or a more clinical level of care. We can even offer 24-hour, live-in care, meaning that whatever your care needs, we will be able to support you. Having care at home means you can remain in the place you love and be cared for as you need, without compromising your quality of life.
Home care is the perfect alternative to residential care because you get to be in familiar surroundings, with all the things that are precious to you at hand. Perhaps you’ve always loved your garden? Well that needn’t change, as your carer will happily support you outside when the weather’s fine so that you can enjoy the sights and sounds you have for years. One of our friendly Brentwood team will devise a personalised support plan in collaboration with you or your loved ones, to ensure that your routines are respected, and your care needs encompassed. Our dedicated and friendly carers will ensure that your independence is supported, and your dignity respected at all times. Our flexible care packages will provide you with as many or as few visits a day as you need, which can be changed to suit you at any time.
Perhaps you’re finding routine household tasks less easy than you used to, or you’d appreciate some help going to appointments, or maybe you’re living with a long-term health condition and you don’t feel you can manage moving forward. Brentwood’s dedicated carers will do everything they can to make your life more enjoyable, whether that’s going for supported walks in nature or just being able to sit in your beloved garden. Whether it’s for a few minutes once a day or 24-hour live-in, the Brentwood team can discuss your care options with you and help you realise that staying in your own home is definitely an option.
Visiting care is just as it sounds; a carer visits you as often or as infrequently as you require so that you can live a better quality of life. Carers can start early in the morning or late at night so that you get to follow your own routine and remain as independent as possible and in control of your own life. Carers can even visit overnight for those who find the night times a challenge and need extra support during the hours of darkness.
If you are caring for a loved one yourself then you need to make sure you’re being taken care of as well. Regular breaks are essential so that you can reconnect with yourself or spend quality time with your family, but it’s understandable that you’ll worry about them if you’re not there. Fortunately, the Brentwood team can arrange short or longer-term respite care, so that you’re able to take a break with as little anxiety as possible. Our experienced and dedicated carers will follow a flexible support plan devised by you and the team, that ensures your loved one’s life continues in their set routines even when you’re not there.
Life doesn’t usually warn us when an emergency situation is impending, and therefore the Brentwood team will be able to help source emergency care for you at very short notice, at times even within a few hours. Perhaps it’s due to an unexpected hospital discharge, a sudden fall or a deterioration of a long-term condition, don’t feel your life will have to go on hold when a carer can support your loved one straight away. You can concentrate on spending quality time together when you can, safe in the knowledge that they’re being expertly cared for by the Brentwood team.
Maria and her team of dedicated and professional carers will be able to advise you accordingly about which care package would best suit your requirements. Our carers all undertake a rigorous training programme when they first join us and continue to develop their skills throughout their employment, so you can be confident in an expert team that was rated ‘Good’ in their last Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspection.
