What’s included with home care at Helping Hands?
Home care conjures up different images for different people, but it is essentially care delivered in your own home, by friendly and knowledgeable carers who come to your home at pre-arranged times, or in some cases, live-in care full-time. Care at home means you get to stay exactly where you want to be; in your own home, surrounded by the people or memories that you cherish. With visits starting from only 30 minutes, you can be confident that your care is at the optimised level for you, and with flexible support plans in place, it can be increased and changed any time you need it to be. Whether you need support with light housework or personal care, companionship or pet care, you can be confident that our carers will cater for your every need, whatever level of care you require. Our carers and team of clinical lead nurses will also be able to care for more complex cases, palliative or end of life; just ask our friendly and approachable Chichester team what they can do for you.
Why you may need home care
You may feel that you aren’t as strong as you used to be, or perhaps you’re finding daily tasks more of a struggle. It may be that you are finding it hard to get out of bed or your chair, or perhaps you’re not able to prepare food for yourself like you used to. Regardless of the reasons for seeking care at home, you can be sure that the Chichester team will look after your every requirement and advise you fully on what care package would be right for you.
Carers for limited hour visits
Visits starting from 30 minutes mean that your care needs will be fully covered; whether you have light requirements such as companionship, support with mobility or more complex, clinical care needs. Perhaps it’s overnight that you struggle the most; finding the hours of darkness difficult if you’re awake and everyone else is asleep. Your overnight carer can support you with medication requirements, personal care or simply keep you occupied, so that the night passes more quickly.
Intermittent long-term visits
If you are caring for a loved one yourself, it’s very important that you schedule in regular breaks so that you have a chance to relax. Whether you want to spend time with the kids, go on holiday or just reconnect with yourself, respite care from the Chichester team will give you the opportunity for some time away. It’s natural that you would be anxious about someone else taking over your loved one’s care for a while, but there’s no need to be, as the Chichester branch will be bale to guide you through all the practicalities of short or longer-term respite care, so that you can be completely confident that you loved one’s routines are being followed as they prefer.
Carers for immediate situations
When life throws unexpected events our way it is our first instinct to panic; how are we going to cope? Who’s going to step in and take control? Whilst these are natural questions, there is no need to feel pressured as the team at Chichester will be able to arrange emergency care for you, most often in as little as 24 hours. Therefore, if you live far away or have a demanding home life you can still be confident that your loved one is getting the highest quality care from a company with over 30 years’ experience.
