Helping Hands has been caring for people in their own homes for over 30 years, but we still uphold the values and standards that we began with; namely to promote independence as well as preserving people’s dignity as much as possible at all times. Homecare enables a person to stay in the place that they love most, their beloved home, whilst receiving high quality care from professionally trained carers. The highly qualified team providing home care in Brighton will discuss your care options with you and produce a personalised support plan that will enable you or your loved one to live life to your usual routine, with as little disruption as possible.
Carers can spend as little as 30 minutes with you right up to full-time live-in care, so we can guarantee to arrange a care package that suits you. Whether you need support with getting in and out of bed, personal care or spending a day out at the shops, your carer will support you to do whatever you need to make your life more enjoyable. They will follow your routines, thanks to the support plan that will be devised in conjunction with you and the Brighton team, so you can be sure that you or your loved one will face as little disruption to their daily life as possible. Your support plan will be flexible enough to change elements of it any time you wish to, whether through preference or an increase in need, so your care package will always be moulded around your specific requirements.
You may feel you or a loved one need home care because of a gradual decline in health, or it might be because of an unexpected event, but regardless of the reason, extra support in your own home can only be a good thing. We all need a hand with tasks at certain stages in our life and it’s certainly not something to be anxious about, especially when your carer will be a highly trained, compassionate professional from the Brighton branch.
Perhaps you need extra support once a day or you may prefer multiple visits, the choice is yours. Your friendly carer will be able to come to your home for anything from a 30-minute visit, to ensure that everything you need to live well is done for you. Your personalised care support plan will map out exactly what your carer will do when they are visiting you and rest assured, the support plan is totally flexible to encompass any changes you may want made.
If the darkest hours are when you struggle more, you may prefer to have someone with you overnight. If you find you can’t sleep or perhaps feel more anxious at night it can be reassuring to know there’s someone there with you, supporting you with anything you may need.
If you are the carer for a loved one you will know the importance of taking regular breaks but may not have the confidence to do so. Your local Brighton care team will be able to put short or longer-term respite care in place for you, so you can be confident that whatever your requirements are, there will be a perfectly matched carer for you. Perhaps you want to go on holiday with the family, spend time with your partner or just reconnect with yourself? The personalised support plan will ensure that the same routines will carry on for your loved one, just as if you were there with them yourself.
Life sometimes throws us unexpected events to deal with and that’s when you need to know that care can be arranged quickly, often in the same day. If you or a loved one are being discharged unexpectedly from hospital, your health suddenly declines or perhaps you’ve had a fall, you can be assured that the Brighton team will be able to get you the emergency care you need quickly.
Justyna and her team in Brighton will be happy to talk you through your care options at a time to suit you and in the comfort of your own home. You can be assured that all of our carers go through a rigorous training programme of instruction before they ever meet their first customer; a programme which continues throughout their employment to ensure they are always up to date with the latest developments. Additionally, we are fully accredited and regulated through the Care Quality Commission (CQC), the regulatory body for England, who awarded Brighton a ‘Good’ rating at their most recent inspection. Therefore, you can be confident in us to support you and your loved ones in the manner they deserve.
