Having domiciliary care, otherwise known as care in your own home, is a preferred method of support for many people who don’t wish to go into residential care.
When you know you could do with some extra support you may at first be resistant to the idea, thinking it will signify your loss of independence and you eventually having to leave your home.
With Helping Hands though this couldn’t be further from the truth, as we celebrate anyone who has the courage to say they need some extra care to live life to its fullest. Our friendly local care team in Greenwich will make sure you have everything you need to live as independently and comfortably as possible, every single day.
You may be living with age-related frailties that have come on gradually as you’ve got older, or perhaps you have an ongoing condition that you’ve managed for years.
We have experience of helping our customers live with a variety of different conditions, such as: Dementia, Parkinson’s, MND, Cancer and Spinal Injuries, and because we’ve been helping them to live comfortably at home since 1989, you know you’re going to be in the best hands with us.
We offer care on both a visiting and live-in basis, to ensure that we can offer you a bespoke package of care that suits your needs perfectly.
Visiting care is where your carers come to you at home from just 30 minutes per week, right up to as many visit per day or overnight you need; Live in care means your carer lives in your home with you, offering around the clock support for additional reassurance that you’re never at home alone.
Both of our care services will mean you are fully supported with every aspect of your daily routine such as personal care, dressing, getting in and out of bed, meal preparation and medication. Our carers will also be able to help keep your home clean and tidy and make sure you get to access your local community whenever you want to.
We’re known as the UK’s home care experts because we’ve been helping people live as independently as possible in the homes they love for almost three decades. By offering a bespoke service to every person we support there is no ‘one size fits all’ with Helping Hands, meaning your care is as individual as you are.
We take special care of the people who work for us too, selecting only the most compassionate people to care for our customers and making sure we develop their skills as often as possible. We have people coming to us from all walks of life and at various stages of their career, so if a person has a wealth of experience we always value it, making sure that everyone gets the opportunity to achieve their full potential and climb the career ladder.
And, because our services are fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, you and your loved ones can be confident that our care delivery will exceed your highest expectations.
