Our fully-trained carers draw on their years of experience to provide professional and compassionate home care services. We understand that everyone is different, with their own unique care needs. This is why we offer flexible care services and will customise our plans to best suit your needs. Our goal is to make a real difference by helping people live the life they want in the place they know and love – their home.
Our team providing home care in Cramlington is committed to improving the lives of people in Cramlington and the surrounding areas. We provide two types of home care – visiting care and live-in care. Visiting care can be as little as 30 minutes a week. Whereas, live-in care provides your loved one with continuous full-time care. Here are some of the home care services offered in Cramlington:
Every caregiver deserves an occasional break from their responsibilities to relax, recharge, and focus on their wellbeing. We understand that it can be unsettling to trust a new person with the care of a loved one. However, you can’t do everything yourself and respite breaks are an essential part of healthy caregiving. Our respite care services will allow you to go away on holiday or spend quality time with family, while knowing that your loved one is in safe hands. We can also arrange urgent respite care in an emergency. In most cases, we can arrange emergency care within 24 hours, although this can faster in a crisis situation. Respite care gives you the chance to try out the excellent carers that we have local to you. This means you can have peace of mind knowing that a fully-trained carer can always step in and support your loved one if you are unavailable for any reason.
As people age, it is normal for them to require some extra help to maintain their quality of life. If you notice that an elderly relative is struggling with certain activities, then we can arrange for a fully trained carer to provide assistance. Elderly care can involve everything from personal care and administering medication to providing emotional support and companionship. Our home care services allow elderly people to stay living safely and comfortably at home, without the need to consider residential care. We will take the time to carefully match a carer to your loved one based on their needs, interests, and preferences. This will make the transition easier and encourage a strong rapport between your loved one and their carer.
Dementia is an incurable medical condition that can affect people of all ages, although it’s more likely to affect those over the age of 65. Being diagnosed with dementia can have a significant impact on a person’s life, but there is nothing stopping them from living well. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to support those living with dementia and improve their quality of life. Helping Hands is one of the UK’s leading dementia care providers. We understand that a change of routine and scenery can be stressful for someone with dementia, which is why we specialise in home dementia support. Our carers boast unrivalled standards of dementia care as a result of our Dementia Champion programme, which provides award-winning training on dementia care.
Helping Hands is proud to have remained one of the UK’s leading home care providers for more than 30 years. We are renowned experts in the care industry and offer unparalleled standards when it comes to training. All of our carers complete an extensive training programme which takes place at our Centre of Excellence – the first training facility to be endorsed by Skills for Care. Our services are fully-regulated, so you can have complete confidence in the skills and expertise of our carers.
