Helping Hands have been providing high quality, professional personal care for over 30 years, so it’s no surprise we’re an industry leader when it comes to caring for people in their own homes. You may be living with dementia or have a long-term injury or need home care in Bromsgrove on a shorter-term basis; for example, after a fall or so your family member can take a break. Whatever your circumstances, the friendly team in Bromsgrove will be able to guide you through your options and devise a support package that is flexible enough, so your routines don’t have to change.
Personal care is very flexible dependent on your needs. For instance, visits start at just 30 minutes and go all the way up to full-time live-in care, so you really are in control of your choices when it comes to your care package. Being cared for in your own home with all your precious memories and mementoes around you makes the world of difference to your ongoing comfort, as you can stay in the place you love most with the people or pets that mean everything to you. Perhaps you need support with light household duties or mobility support? Maybe you always enjoyed walking locally and you’d like to do it again with your carer’s support? The Bromsgrove team will be able to support you with whatever you need, whether it’s minimal support in the house, to help you with personal care, clinical care for a health condition or a bit of everything.
You could be looking for home care in Bromsgrove for a variety of reasons; perhaps you are finding everyday tasks a little more difficult than usual or you’re struggling to take care of a beloved pet. You may have been in hospital for a while and need support while recuperating or living with a condition that is worsening. Whatever the reason, the friendly team at Bromsgrove will be able to support you with all your home care needs in a professional and expert manner.
When a carer comes to you for a set amount of time each day, you will have the security of your own routine being respected and followed as you prefer. Before your care begins, you and your loved ones will have a personalised support plan produced by a member of the Bromsgrove team to ensure that everything you need help with is included. This means that your carer will know to do things the way you’ve always liked them done, with the minimum of disruption to your routines. It’s the night times that can be the most difficult for some, as the darkness hours can bring a sense of isolation knowing the rest of the world is sleeping. We also have overnight carers who will support you if your needs are such; you just need to call us and we can give you all the information you need.
Caring for a loved one can be highly rewarding but also challenging, which is why it’s so important that you get regular breaks if you are a carer yourself. Maybe you need to spend more time with your partner and kids, take a holiday or reconnect with yourself? The Bromsgrove team would be happy to arrange short or longer-term respite care for your loved one, meaning that you can step away for a while, knowing that everything will be done just as they like it for a seamless continuation of care.
Life can throw events at us that we never could have anticipated, so when an emergency situation arises you need to know that care can be put in place quickly, even within 24 hours. You may have found out that a loved one is being unexpectedly discharged from hospital, yet you live across the country, it may be that an existing condition has taken a downturn or that they need short-term care after a fall. Whatever the reason, you need to know that you’re in expert hands and that your loved one’s needs will be fully supported.
Miguel and his friendly team will be able to support you with every aspect of your care journey, from initial enquiry through to commencement of care and beyond, so you know you’ll be in good hands from the start. Our carers undertake a rigorous programme of instruction before they meet their customers, in topics such as manual handling, dementia, personal care and first aid, to name just a few. The Bromsgrove branch also achieved a ‘Good’ rating from the Care Quality Commission (CQC), at their most recent inspection, so you can be confident in the entire team’s professional and knowledgeable abilities.
