What’s included with home care at Helping Hands?
When you choose care from Helping Hands you get a dedicated team locally, backed up by a nationwide support network of branches across England and Wales. Whether you or a loved one require a 30-minute visit once a week or full-time, live-in care, you can trust us to deliver the highest quality of care possible from day one. Receiving care in your own home means that you don’t have to leave the place you love most or have the upheaval of downsizing into a residential home. You can stay just where you want to be; looking out over a garden you love or having cuddles with a beloved pet. The Guildford care team can support you with every aspect of your care, including meal preparation, medication support, mobility assistance and much more, so please don’t hesitate to find out more about how they could be supporting you.
Why you may need home care
Perhaps you’ve felt less confident lately while doing your housework or it could be that you have a condition that is progressing; whatever the reason you or your loved one is finding daily tasks more difficult, why not let one of the Guildford carers do it for you? While you enjoy a cup of tea, they can be doing light housework or other tasks for you, all under your expert supervision of course!
Carers for limited hour visits
Visiting care consists of a carer coming to your home as often or as infrequently as you require, so that you can continue to live the best quality of life possible. Our carers always promote the customers’ independence above all else so don’t be concerned that someone is coming to your home to ‘take over’; that will never happen. You will have a personalised support plan compiled for and with you, so that when your carer arrives, they will know how you like things done and will respect your routines and preferences at all times. Perhaps it’s overnight when you require more support? One of our professional overnight carers will be able to stay with you throughout the night and attend to your every need, whether it’s remembering medication, personal care or companionship.
Intermittent long-term visits
When you’re the carer, it’s vital that you take regular time away from the situation, so that you can recharge your energy, reconnect with yourself or spend time with the family. It can be a worry thinking that the only option is uprooting your loved one into residential respite care, however that isn’t the case; the Guildford team will be able to supply you with a dedicated respite carer for short or longer-term support, so that you can get the time you need to relax.
Carers for immediate situations
When emergencies happen, it can throw us into a panic, and when it happens to a family member who may need care at home it can be even worse, especially if you live a long way from them. The Guildford team will be able to get emergency care for your loved one into their home in a matter of hours, so you can be reassured that they will be properly cared for without you having to put your life on hold for an undetermined length of time.
Home carers in Guildford
Michelle and her team in Guildford are highly experienced and all share the same vision; to enable their customers to remain as independent as possible in their own home for as long as they can. Because Helping Hands isn’t an agency, it means that all of our carers are recruited locally and know the area well. They work hard in their local community to ensure that as many people as possible are taken care of, and the branch has a Care Quality Commission (CQC) rating of ‘Good’ to support this ethos. The carers undertake a rigorous programme of training when they first join the company and regularly update their skills throughout their employment, to ensure that their knowledge is always as relevant as possible.
