Visiting home care in Dunstable
Choosing a care provider for yourself or a loved one can be quite a daunting prospect, but with our friendly and compassionate team in Dunstable, we can take all of the stress and anxiety away for you by providing tailored home care. There’s no need to worry about moving into a care home where you’ll be away from loved ones and have less independence; we can provide the right support for you whilst you remain living in the comfort of your own home, perhaps alongside a spouse, partner or pet.
Visiting home care from Helping Hands can start from weekly visits to help you with washing the dishes, collecting your groceries and running the vacuum round, to more regular support throughout the day and overnight, assisting you with personal care, administering medication and moving in and around your home safely. What’s more, with a small group of carers that you can build a rapport with, you’ll be able to continue with existing hobbies such as tending to your garden, visiting local beauty spots or even taking up new hobbies, with their assistance of course.

Live-in care in Dunstable for 24-hour support
Live-in care offers additional support throughout the day and night for those living with more complex health conditions such as dementia, Parkinson’s or a spinal injury. It allows individuals to still stay at home and retain as much of their independence as possible, but with specialised support and companionship.
Choosing live-in care means that you will have a dedicated carer living with you in your home to provide 24-hour support for your physical and mental needs – whether that’s assisting with continence care, helping you get dressed or simply being there if you become anxious during the night. We’ll work with you to find a carer that is just right for you in both experience and personality, so that you can build a bond of trust with them and accept them into your home.
Friendly and fully qualified carers in Dunstable
We are fully registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC), who monitor our services for their safety, effectiveness and responsiveness, as well as ensuring our carers receive the industry standard in care training. To do this, all of our new carers are required to undergo our in-house training programme, which covers personal care, manual handling, dementia, first aid and safeguarding. And to keep up to date with the latest and safest care practices, our existing carers are required to complete regular refresher courses.
We are founding members of the United Kingdom Home Care Association (UKHCA) and affiliated with the Dementia Action Alliance (DAA), who both promote the wellbeing and best practice of home care and dementia care respectively.
