Domiciliary care describes the care you receive in your own home. This could be support with housework, personal care, medication, meal preparation, mobility, or a range of tasks that ensure you are able to live as independently as possible at home. Across the whole county of Essex, we have dedicated support teams who are experts in helping our customers with home care in Essex retaining as much of their daily routine as they can, whether that’s accessing day services in the community, walking the dog, or attending essential appointments.
If you have always lived alone and wish to continue enjoying the home you love, or you have a partner but are finding everyday tasks harder to complete, our visiting and live-in carers can support you. Perhaps you have age-related frailties, a life-limiting condition, or you might just struggle with the weightier elements of running your household. If so, we can be there from just 30 minutes a week, to help you complete domiciliary care tasks with ease.
At Helping Hands, we don’t believe in a ‘one size fits all’ approach to your care. Instead, our packages of support are tailored exactly to your needs so that you get to remain in the place you love most – your home. Our carers and managers across Essex county will work tirelessly to help you make the most of your home while being reassured that your daily needs are taken care of. This is also important for your loved ones, so that they have peace of mind that you’re managing day-to-day.
Carers join us from a variety of backgrounds and with varying levels of experience, yet we always equip them with additional knowledge so that they can best support our customers. We believe in developing talent at Helping Hands, and we’ve spent over 30 years honing our training and knowledge-sharing so that all of our carers have the opportunity to enhance their skills. We only choose naturally caring and empathetic people to join us, meaning that you and your loved ones can be confident in who’s coming into your home. Additionally, because we’re fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, you know our services are monitored for consistency and excellence.
If you would like to learn more about the domiciliary care services that we offer on both a visiting and live-in basis, you can chat to our customer care teams seven days a week, or pop into your local branch. You can locate your nearest one here. Alternatively, you can have a web chat with one of our team at a time to suit you.
