Live-in care Cirencester
Often referred to as the capital of the Cotswolds, Cirencester boasts farmers’ and antique markets, the oldest polo ground in the UK and one of the largest cathedrals in England, to name just a few of its accolades. During Roman times, this Gloucestershire district was the second largest town in Britain and in the 21st century, it still lives up to its historical beginnings. To add to its impressive list is a new branch of Helping Hands Home Care.
Covering Barnsley, Cirencester, Kemble and the surrounding areas, the team in Cirencester can support you with care needs in your own home – whether that’s several times a week or full-time live-in care.
"My main job role is to oversee the day to day running of the Cirencester branch and ensure all customers are receiving the highest standards of care. I take a hands-on approach to my leadership role and you will often see me out in uniform, getting to know our customers and carers on a personal level. This gives me a deeper, more relevant knowledge of our customer base to ensure all of their needs are being met.
"I have worked within the care sector since I was 18 years old and started as a support worker, working within the community with adults who live with poor mental health. This is where I found my true calling in life; to assist vulnerable members of my community to be as independent as possible. It is such an overwhelming feeling watching people succeed and knowing you are making a difference to their lives."
For over 30 years, we've been supporting people with care, nurse-supported care and companionship across England and Wales. As industry-leaders in home care, we know what it takes to provide the right level of care so that you can retain your independence in the comfort of your beloved home.
Over 100 branches across the UK means we're local to you
We are not an agency - we employ every carer directly
Get to know your carer before care starts
Family-run and experts in home care since 1989
Fully flexible care packages as your needs change
Flexible care provided in your own home with a fully qualified carer. Visits start from as little as 30 minutes up to several hourly or overnight calls throughout the week.
One-to-one support from a fully qualified care that lives with you. Full-time support so you can stay at home where you feel most comfortable.
From as little as 30 minutes per week, our visiting care support packages are created with you at the centre. Whether you need support to get in and around Cirencester or you need regular personal care, we’ll ensure your support plan contains everything you need so that you can remain living in the place you know and love; your home.
Visiting home care is also a great way to receive support little and often, but still have the freedom of living where you want to and how you want to. You don’t necessarily need to have personal care or assistance with taking medication to arrange visiting care – your care plan can be whatever you want it to be. So, if you’re in your thirties and need support visiting friends due to a congential condition that limits your mobility, we can accompany you to meet up with them. Or if you’re in your seventies and struggle to make your own meals after an operation or health condition, we’ll pop in and make sure you have something tasty to eat.
Live-in care is a direct alternative to residential care or a nursing home. Not only does it allow you to stay in the comfortable surroundings of your own home, but it also gives you one-to-one support from a carer that will get to know you and your preferences.
Living with you in your home, we ensure that all of our customers are very much involved in the process of selecting the right carer for them, not just in care experience but also in personality. So, if you have Parkinson’s but enjoy afternoons out at the beautifully kept Cirencester Park, we’ll find a carer that is able to support you with your physical needs but who also has an interest in landscapes and walking.
Additionally, our live-in carers that care for those with more complex health needs are supported by a team of expert clinicians, who will ensure that all of your requirements are met appropriately. So, whether you have a catheter, stoma, tracheotomy or require PEG tube feeding, you can rest assured that your needs can be catered for with live-in care.
With domiciliary care, we emphasise the freedom and control that you have over your care with our comprehensive support plans that are created with you and our team. We recognise how important it is for anyone in need of extra support to have all of their needs met, both physically and emotionally. That’s why our carers do so much more than tend to the practicalities; they’ll ensure that they build a rapport with you and understand the things you like and don’t like, so that you can really get the best out of your care with Helping Hands.
With more and more people developing dementia, we understand how important it is to create the right level of care for anyone living with the condition who may need extra support. To ensure that you get the very best dementia care, all of our carers are given detailed dementia training which includes the different types of dementia, the effects of the condition and the most effective way to provide support.
We are also members of the Dementia Action Alliance, who promote the latest and safest practices in dementia care throughout the UK. Along with the knowledge we have built up since our inception in 1989, these different elements enable us to support both your family and loved one who is living with the condition with the most appropriate care that is individual to them. What’s more, we want to enable as many people as possible that have dementia to live at home where they feel safe and comfortable.
A growing population of those aged 65 and over means that many of us may need to support our elderly parents as they reach their senior years. Sometimes, this can just be popping in once or twice a week to check that they’re okay, but other scenarios may mean that they need more support than you are able to give or you may not live very close to them to offer help in the first place. That’s where the Cirencester team can help. From weekly visits all the way up to regular calls throughout the day and even sleep ins, we can be the leaning post you may need in order to know that your parents or elderly relatives are okay and have everything they need.
If you have recently been discharged from hospital after an injury or illness or you need care on a short-term basis while your regular care giver is away, respite care from the Cirencester team can provide you with just the solution that you need. Designed to take the weight and worry off your shoulders, care can usually be in place within 24 hours after you contact us so that you are never left without support. Enabling our customers to get back on their feet again is such an amazing thing to be part of, and our carers will do everything they can to ensure you achieve this.
With over 30 years’ experience, we have the skills, knowledge and expertise to provide all-round training for our new and existing carers. And we’re not the only ones who think so; our in-house training programme has been recognised as by Skills for Care as a Centre of Excellence. As well as our award-winning training, all of our carers complete full background checks, including a Disclosure Barring Service (DBS) screening, so that you can have the utmost confidence in the person that is coming to your home to care for you.
All personal care services are provided by our Care Quality Commission (CQC) registered office Helping Hands Cheltenham & Gloucester. Having a governing body regulate our service ensures we are delivering a safe and effective service whilst building trust between us and the many people we care for each day.
We are actively collecting and monitoring our reviews and feedback for Live-in care Cirencester to ensure our customers receive the best possible live in and home care service.
