Whether you’ve found yourself needing a little extra support at home, perhaps with getting out of bed or undertaking housework, or you need a carer to come in several times a day to cover each part of your routine, visiting care from Helping Hands will mean you are never struggling alone to achieve an essential task. Our amazing local Cosham care team will support you in every way they can to make sure that you live as independently as possible, supporting you with your personal care, medication, meal preparation and so much more.
If you would enjoy having someone living in your home with you, then live-in care is a superb option. By having a carer actually residing in your home, you get the reassurance of around the clock care, teamed with companionship as often as you would like it. Your live-in carer will be professional, compassionate and discreet, meaning you’ll receive excellent care at all times, but you also won’t feel as if your personal space has been taken over. In fact, your carer will quickly become a good friend and someone you rely on to support you, whether that’s with your personal care tasks, housework or other part of your care needs.
The reason that we’re better than a care agency in Cosham is because we are not, and never have been an agency, and because our care delivery and practices go way beyond that of a traditional agency. For instance, care agencies tend to spend the majority of their time ‘matching’ you with a suitable carer, for which they take a fee and then have no further part in your care. However, at Helping Hands we manage every aspect of your care journey, from the first moment you or your loved ones contact us, and because we directly employ every one of our carers you don’t have to worry about paying them directly or managing their employment.
Domiciliary care is another name for care you receive at home, and at Helping Hands it’s what we’ve been delivering since we were founded in 1989. We’ve always focussed on ensuring our customers live their lives as independently as possible in their own homes, and we are experts in care delivery for many different conditions, such as dementia, Parkinson’s, palliative care and cancer. Equally, many of our customers just require some companionship or have lower-level care needs or age-related frailties. We can even offer nursing care if you have complex care needs that require it.
When you or a loved one is living with dementia you want to know that the care company you choose is able to help and will support you effectively. Your diagnosis is only the beginning of a journey that may last for several years, and while you may not need care immediately, you may find that you require additional support as time goes on. Having a professional carer coming to care for you means you’ll have someone in your home who understands dementia and is well placed to be able to suggest ways for your loved ones to also support you better. Also, by remaining in your own home, you’ll be in familiar surroundings that may help to reduce confusion and associated anxiety.
By remaining in your own home for elderly care, you get to set your own routine, rather than having to abide by the schedule that a care home sets for you. With Helping Hands, you get to choose your mealtimes, when you get up and go to bed, and every other aspect of your life at home, meaning you are always in control. You also get to remain in comforting surroundings that mean the world to you, with people and pets that you wouldn’t want to be separated from. Your independence means everything to us just as it does to you, and that’s why we’ll do all we can to ensure you always live as independently at home as you can.
When you are in need of temporary support at home, perhaps because your regular carer needs to take a break or you need some support to get you back on your feet after an illness, respite care is an excellent alternative to going into residential care. It’s vital that your carer gets to take time off because while rewarding, caring for another person can be tiring and emotionally draining. Consequently, to ensure that your carer gets to recharge their batteries and return to you refreshed, choose respite care for a week or two, or however long you need it. We can also offer care in an emergency, or nursing care if necessary.
At Helping Hands, we only choose the most caring and compassionate individuals to become our carers. We select them carefully from our many applicants, ensuring that they are screened carefully through the Disclosure and Barring Service, as well as having their backgrounds thoroughly checked before they are able to enter our customers’ homes. We focus on always delivering the highest quality, person-centred care, while our compassionate and empathetic carers go above and beyond to look after our customers with dignity and independence. We’re also fully accredited by the Dementia Action Alliance and fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, which demonstrates our commitment to delivering exemplary home care at all times.
We are actively collecting and monitoring our reviews and feedback for Cosham to ensure our customers receive the best possible live in and home care service.
