Visiting home care in Deal
As the industry leaders in home care, we understand the complexities and worries that comes with thinking about home care for yourself or a loved one. But our friendly and reassuring team in Deal are here to relieve any anxieties about allowing someone you don’t know come into your home and provide your care. They’ll go through all aspects of your support plan with you before your care commences, making sure that all of your needs are taken care of, both physically and emotionally.
With visiting home care, we can offer calls from as little as 30 minutes per week to begin with, which may be useful if you just require support little and often with the housework or getting to and from appointments. As time goes on and you become more comfortable and used to your carers, you may wish to extend the amount of care you receive, particularly if you’re frail or struggle to do things like you used to. We can be with you for several hours if necessary, providing morning, afternoon or evening calls to help with personal care, getting in and out of bed safely and support with mobilising in and around your home.Request a callback Email us
Meet Zoe, our Area Care Manager
“Hello, I’m Zoe. As Area Care Manager for the South East, I support all our branches in exceeding the delivery of best practice, so that our customers can receive the dedicated care at home that they deserve.
“I actually have first-hand experience of the amazing service that Helping Hands provide when they cared for one of my family members until she passed away. From the management teams orchestrating the package of care, to the staff at the forefront of the business, I witnessed their dedication to want to make a difference and support not only the customer, but their surrounding family and friends.”
Round-the-clock live-in care in Deal
If you have complex care needs such as advanced dementia or a spinal injury, you may require more regular support so that there is always someone on hand to assist you. Live-in care is the ideal solution for this, as a carer will live with you in your home to provide a constant source of support and reassurance. They’ll get to know you in detail – finding out what time you like to get up in the morning, how many sugars you like in your tea (if any!) and what activities you enjoy doing. That way, your carer becomes more like a trusted friend there to help you, rather than a carer.
If you or a loved one are worried about moving into a care home, live-in care is the direct alternative to this. Instead of having the upheaval and stress of moving out of your beloved home and leaving a partner, spouse or pets behind, you can stay living in the comfort and peacefulness of your own home, surrounded by familiar possessions, smells and photographs. We find that live-in home care is the preferred option for many, as it allows you to choose what you do and when you do it, being close to friends and family and living in the home you have known and loved for years and years.
Fully trained carers in Deal
To ensure we select the very best carers to join our team in Deal, our rigorous recruitment process begins with an in-depth interview and character references. This is because we only choose to employ those who are genuinely kind, caring and compassionate, putting others first and doing the best by them. Everything else that our carers need can be provided by our local care teams and taught as part of their induction and training process, which involves modules on dementia, first aid, safeguarding and manual handling.
As well as being a founding member of the United Kingdom Health Care Association (UKHCA), we are fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). This strict monitoring process covers our care services and ensures they are safe, effective, responsive and well-led, thus giving you peace of mind that your care is being delivered by an industry-approved provider.
