Helping Hands have been supporting people to live as independently as possible in their own homes for over 30 years, so you can be confident that we are an industry leader when it comes to home care. Our carers providing home care in Fareham have already made a big difference to many people living in the local area and would be happy to discuss your care options with you, at a time convenient to you, in the comfort of your own home.
With visits starting from just 30 minutes once a week up to full-time, live-in care, you can be confident that the local Fareham team will be able to devise a support plan that incorporates all your needs and respects your ongoing routines. Care at home is totally flexible and doesn’t follow the same structure as residential care, meaning that you remain in control of your care experience at all times. Our carers can support you with any aspect of your care such as preparing a nutritious meal, administering medication, mobility, going to appointments and activities and so much more. Perhaps you need help with some light housework or gardening? Our flexible and supportive carers will take care of anything that you need, so you can continue to live in the home that you love, surrounded by precious memories and mementoes.
Perhaps you’d appreciate some vacuuming and dusting taken care of once a week, or maybe your bed linen laundered? Regardless of your needs, our friendly Fareham carers will take care of all those household tasks that may be becoming a little overwhelming for you. They’ll tackle dust in unexpected places and leave your kitchen spick and span! They can also accompany you to important appointments, help take the dog for a walk, support you if you’re in bed and everything else in between.
Accepting some care at home does not mean you are saying you can’t manage anymore. Plenty of our customers are actively enjoying their independence but realise they could appreciate some support with important household tasks, mobility or their medication. You may be able to manage every aspect of your own life with the exception of one or two tasks, so don’t feel you have to struggle, request some help from the Fareham team and they will make sure you have plenty of energy for the things you enjoy in life. Alternatively, you may spend the majority of your time in bed, or perhaps would appreciate some companionship for a chat over tea and cake? Regardless of what you need, we can make sure it happens for you. It might be that you dislike the night hours and feel more vulnerable overnight? One of our overnight carers can be with you until morning, to ensure that anything you need during the hours of darkness is taken care of for you, whether personal care, medication or just keeping you company while everyone else is asleep.
When you are the carer of a loved one, you’ll know how important it is for you to take regular breaks. Ensuring that you stay physically and mentally well is important when you’re the one caring, so make sure that you are getting opportunities to spend time with family, friends or even taking a well-earned holiday. Respite care from the Fareham team means that you can take a break and relax, knowing your loved one’s care is being carried out as if you were still there. A personalised support plan means that you both get to put the care in place that you know is right, and that the carer will follow it carefully to ensure everything runs smoothly.
An emergency can throw the best laid plans into disarray and cause anxieties for all those involved, so if your loved one is suddenly discharged from hospital or needs post-operative care how will you cope? You don’t have to put your life on pause for the duration of their needs, you can request emergency care from the team in Fareham and they’ll have a carer in the home to support you within hours.
Karen and her friendly team in Fareham will be able to guide you through every aspect of your care request, so don’t hesitate to call them and ask for more information. We’re not an agency; our carers are recruited locally and employed directly, so you can be confident that your dedicated, well-supported carers will be happy to see you each time they arrive at your home. Our carers are rigorously trained when they begin working for us and their learning doesn’t stop throughout their time employed by Helping Hands, ensuring their skills are always up to date. Helping Hands is also fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), and the Fareham branch received a ‘Good’ accreditation at their most recent inspection.
