Being able to live independently is important to all of us, but if you or a loved one is living with disabilities or additional support needs it can seem that they’ll never be able to remain living where they love. Many people believe that they’ll have no choice but to move into a care home rather than remain living in their own home but that’s just not the case. Supported living care from Helping Hands means that you’ll be given all the help you need to live just as you wish. We offer support on both a visiting and live-in basis, all of which is fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and the Care Inspectorate Wales, meaning you won’t be in safer hands across the whole of Dorset.
No matter what you enjoy doing in life or the complexity of your daily routine, we can help. We’ve supported people to remain comfortable and safe in their own homes since we were established in 1989, and since then we’ve built on our knowledge and skills to ensure people across the whole of England and Wales benefit from our expert support. Whether you’d like support with your mobility, housework, personal care, meal preparation, you like visiting the countryside or local activities, we’ll be by your side.
Whether you need us for an hour or two a week, several times a day or around the clock, we’ll still put the sae amount of dedication into your care package. We’ll work hard to promote your independence and keep you happy by supporting you to enjoy your favourite hobbies, activities, or visiting family and friends. You might be working or studying, and our care assistants will be able to keep you doing the things you want to, as well as making the most of your social life. We work with you to plan your package of support, moulding it around your routine so that you get to live the way you want to, with the flexibility to change it if your needs do.
Our carers and support assistants are the heart of our business, and we couldn’t make the difference we do without them. We’ve selected the very best people across Dorset to care for our local customers, screening them carefully to ensure they are the sort of people you want coming into your home. We carry out our own recruitment, selection, and training at Helping Hands, considering it too important for us to leave it in the hands of an outside company. We only select people who exemplify our values of supporting independence and delivering exceptional care, which we’ve held since 1989. We build on their existing skills to ensure that they can support you to the best of their ability, and we’re proud that so many of them stay and build their careers with us, and that many of our managers began as carers with us.
If you’d like to discover more about your options for supported living across Dorset, please contact our friendly customer care team online or over the phone, seven days a week. Alternatively, you can chat to your local branch team, or you can request a call back for a time that suits you.
