Helping Hands has been caring for people and supporting them to remain in their own homes since 1989. Care at home is a viable alternative to residential care, as you get to stay in the home you love, surrounded by people, pets and possessions that mean a lot to you. The friendly care team providing home care in Bury St Edmunds are experts in providing care for their local customers and will be happy to discuss how they can support you or a loved one. Whether you require care for a short-term illness, progressive condition or after an accident, you can be confident in your local branch team to provide the very best care you could wish for.
Home care takes many forms, from brief 30-minute visits, up to full-time live-in care support. Maybe you need help with personal care, light housework, meal preparation or more clinical procedures? You may just need some companionship or help with your mobility so that you can get the most out of life. Your local team in Bury St Edmunds will devise a personalised support plan tailored to your own routines, meaning that you will experience no disruption to the way you like things done. Your dedicated and professional carers will take care of your every need, following your flexible support plan and making sure you live the best life possible in every way.
You may have found yourself struggling with everyday household tasks, need some support caring for a pet, or would appreciate help getting in and out of bed? Regardless of your care needs, the friendly Bury St Edmunds team will be able to support you. Perhaps you have arthritis that is making standing and walking difficult, but used to enjoy going out in the local community? Your carer will be happy to support you to go and do the things you’ve always enjoyed, safe in the knowledge that there’s someone accompanying you who will keep you safe.
One of our carers can visit you or your loved one for any amount of time from 30 minutes upwards, so you can be sure that whatever your requirements are, we can help. It might be that you still want to do the things in life you enjoy, whether inside or outside of your home, and your carer will be by your side to assist you. Whether personal care, mobility support or medication assistance, your dedicated carer can help. Perhaps you used to enjoy going out into the countryside or for days out shopping, but now you can’t manage? Your carer will be able to escort you wherever you need to go, ensuring that your life need continue as it always has. If overnight is the time when you feel less comfortable or anxious then why not have a carer for the hours of darkness? They will be there to support you with medication, bathroom visits or to occupy you if you can’t sleep. There really is no limit on how we can help.
When caring for a loved one, it’s vital that you take time out regularly, whether to spend time with your partner or kids or reconnect with yourself. Perhaps you want to take a family holiday or have other commitments you need to fulfil? That’s when a short or longer-term respite carer can help. You can be confident that, thanks to the flexible support plan that will be devised in conjunction with you, your loved one’s routines will be respected, and their needs taken care of.
When life delivers unexpected events, you need to know that you or your loved one can begin receiving care quickly. The Bury St Edmunds team will be able to produce a support plan and arrange for a carer to begin attending within a matter of hours where necessary, so you can be completely reassured that they will be in safe hands if you need emergency care.
