What’s included with home care at Helping Hands?
With visiting care starting from just 30 minutes a week and the ability to provide full-time, live-in care, the Halifax branch team are always available to answer queries and support with questions you may have about homecare. The team of compassionate carers are able to provide help with any aspect of care, from companionship, right up to more complex, nurse-led conditions and everything in-between. Perhaps you find your mobility is becoming less reliable and you’d appreciate support with going out of the house, or you just want the support of a professional who can help you live your life to the fullest again? Having care at home means that you can stay in the place you love the most, with your memories and mementoes around you, as well as with beloved people or pets.
Why you may need home care
Everyone is different and so are the reasons why people may need care at home. It might be due to a fall or injury, a progressive condition, or perhaps from age-related frailties. If you feel that tasks are not as easy as they used to be then why not ask for some help? Whether you’re enquiring for you or a loved one, one of the Halifax team’s friendly carers can be supporting your family in no time.
Carers for limited hour visits
Whether it’s the day or night-time that you need support, our carers can be there for you. If you are more anxious overnight and feel that you need some support to get through the hours of darkness, then an overnight carer may be the answer. They will be able to support you with all the same tasks that are necessary during the day, such as mobility support, personal care, medication administration and companionship, but all while everyone else is asleep.
Intermittent long-term visits
If you are caring for a loved one or friend, then it’s vital that you take regular breaks. Mentioning respite care conjures up images of having to move to a residential facility, even temporarily, however that’s not the only possibility. The team in Halifax will be happy to discuss your options for short or longer-term respite care at home, meaning less disruption and anxiety for both you and your loved one.
Carers for immediate situations
Emergency care is exactly what it suggests; care being needed in an emergency, whether through an unexpected hospital discharge, recovery after a fall or the sudden deterioration of an existing condition. If a loved one suddenly needs care, sourcing it can cause you anxiety as you wade through options and research every one; it can be even more difficult if you live some distance from them. However, by talking to the Halifax team about your emergency care needs, they could get you a carer in place in just a few hours, meaning peace of mind for you with the knowledge that such a well-established company is caring for your loved one.
Home carers in Halifax
Steve and his team are dedicated to supporting as many people as they can in the local area to remain living in their own homes, regardless of their care needs. They will ensure total flexibility within your care package and support plan, always keeping the customer at the centre of their own care journey, meaning that you can be confident that the care they receive is the care they want to receive. Helping Hands is not an agency; all of our carers are directly employed, meaning a more secure work force, dedicated to supporting their customers in every way possible. All Helping Hands carers receive a comprehensive programme of training when they first join us, and their skills are regularly refreshed throughout their employment. This ensures that their knowledge is always up to date and you can be confident in their abilities to support you in the best way possible. Helping Hands are also fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), and the Halifax branch were awarded a ‘Good’ rating at their most recent inspection.
