Helping Hands has been supporting customers to remain in their own homes since 1989, delivering an unrivalled quality of care for people from all over England and Wales. Our friendly care team providing home care in Dartford will be happy to advise you on the care options available. Having delivered care to thousands of customers within their own homes means that we are experts in every situation, whether it’s a loved one living with dementia, post-operative care or a spinal injury, for example.
Home care is very flexible and can be tailored to your exact requirements. Whether you require support with personal care, meal preparation, mobility, medication or companionship, whatever your needs are, the team at Dartford will be able to help. Our dedicated carers can visit you from as little as 30 minutes right up to full-time live-in care, so you can be confident that we will support you in any way you wish. Having care in your own home means that you get to remain in the place that you love the most, with the people, pets and possessions that mean the world to you. This ensures that you get cared for by professionally trained carers who will follow the routines you value, thanks to a personalised support plan that will be prepared especially for you.
You may have discovered that certain tasks are more difficult than they used to be or perhaps take longer than you’d like, or maybe you have a loved one who is struggling at home? The helpful team in Dartford will be able to advise you on care options that will promote their independence, leading them to live a fully rounded life without limitations.
With visits from just 30 minutes, it doesn’t matter whether you need a little or a lot of support. Your friendly and professional carers will be able to support you in every aspect of your care, whether it’s getting you into and out of bed, preparing you a meal or supporting you to get out and about in the local community. If it’s overnight care that you’d prefer then that’s no problem. It can be hard when you’re awake during the hours of darkness knowing everyone else is asleep, but your friendly carer will be able to keep you company, support you to the bathroom or take care of your medication needs, regardless of what you require.
Perhaps you’re the carer for a loved one and understand that regular breaks are important to keep you physically and mentally well? If you are looking for respite care then the team in Dartford will be able to advise you on all or your options, whether short or longer-term. Perhaps you want to spend some quality time with your partner, kids, or just reconnect with yourself? Whether it’s for a well-earned holiday or just some time out, respite carers will follow a personalised support plan to ensure that your loved one’s routines are followed, and their independence promoted as much as possible. Being able to receive care at home for the duration of your break will ensure the continued wellbeing of your loved one and avoid them having to leave the home they love for temporary residential care. This will reduce their anxiety levels and ensure their continued comfort as much as possible.
Sometimes life surprises us with unforeseen events which could never have been anticipated. If you or a loved one needs emergency care, the family don’t need the additional stress of trying to research who would be the best option or hurriedly searching for residential care. Don’t put yourself through added anxiety, as the Dartford team will be able to arrange care at home for your loved one at short notice; often in a few hours.
