Our Helping Hands home care in Gillingham is available to anyone who lives in the local area, regardless of your home care needs. Whether you are looking for someone who can help you or your loved one with administering medicine on a daily basis, help getting washed and dressed, or simply providing some companionship, we are here to help.
Here at Helping Hands, we have years of experience in home care – helping those who are elderly, living with dementia, younger people needing support, or anyone who has other complex health needs. Our Gillingham care staff are highly trained to help you or your loved one regardless of your unique circumstances and are also on-hand to help with respite care if you need it.
Here at Helping Hands, we believe that having a good quality of life is paramount and offer professional, people-centred care. Our focus is helping our customers to maintain as much independence as possible, enabling them to stay at home where they are more comfortable and in familiar surroundings rather than going into residential care.
Our team of carers in Gillingham are available locally to help with anything that you need, from cooking tasty meals to helping with continence. We are fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), and a founder member of the United Kingdom Home Care Association (UKHCA), and our home carers have been trained in everything that they need to know to be able to fully support our customers.
It is important for everyone to have some time off, and this is why respite care for all carers is so important. We appreciate, however, that this can be a worrying time for both carers and you or your loved one, as it can be disruptive and full of unfamiliarity. Our team of home carers in Gillingham is adept at covering for respite time, meticulously following care plans, maintaining routines, and being a professional, friendly face for a smooth transition.
We have substantial experience in caring for our customers – whatever their needs, allowing them to be happy and comfortable, and their carers able to relax, rest assured that everyone is being looked after properly.
Our elderly care team from Gillingham are here to help our elderly customers to live comfortably and safely no matter what their situation is. Whether it is helping to reduce trip hazards at home, taking you or your loved one out and about, or providing companionship on a regular basis, our team of home carers is able to help to bring quality of life and independence for our elderly customers regardless of the level of care that you need.
Our staff are also trained in the skills necessary to support people who are living with dementia and other issues that are commonly associated with older age. We assign our carers according to who we believe will get on best with each individual customer, and our home care team members are proficient, professional, and always wear a smile on their face.
Here at Helping Hands, we understand that every person who is living with dementia has different needs and requirements. We are part of the Dementia Action Alliance, and we have also established our own staff accreditation – Dementia Champions – working in conjunction with the University of Worcester, Dementia Congress, and Dementia UK.
Our carers in Gillingham have had extensive training in supporting those who are living with dementia, understanding the challenges that our customers are facing in their everyday lives, and assisting in maintaining a good quality of life. We understand that much of dementia care is about being in familiar surroundings and establishing routines, and our Gillingham home care team are on hand to help you do this.
We hand-pick all of our carers for their expertise, ability, and personality, ensuring that we give all of our customers the best service possible. All of our carers have completed our stringent training course before they start and have had DBS checks. This means that they are trustworthy, reliable, and adept at caring for people whatever their need.
We look after those who look after you and offer our care staff training, competitive pay, full-time 24/7 support, and we don’t use any agency carers.
If you or your loved one is based in the Gillingham area and think that we can help you with your care needs, don’t hesitate to get in contact with us, so feel free to email, telephone, or pass by our Gillingham office for a chat.
