What’s included with home care at Helping Hands?
Homecare can consist of regular visits, where a Harlow carer comes to your home at prearranged times convenient to you, or live-in care where one of our carers actually moves into your home and is on hand all the time. Visits begin at only 30 minutes a week, so there is bound to be a package that we can put together for you; all of our packages are based around the needs of the customer and include a personalised support plan to ensure your routines and preferences are always met. Our Harlow carers are dedicated and professional and can support you with any number of tasks, including personal care, mobility support, medication administration, meal preparation and light housework. Perhaps you’d appreciate support to get out of the house regularly? Our carers can help with the essential aspects of life, but also with the social things that you’ve always enjoyed doing.
Why you may need home care
Homecare is individual and so are the reasons why you might need it. Perhaps you’ve noticed certain tasks becoming more difficult or maybe you feel you’d benefit from a friendly face popping in regularly? Our carers are able to support you with every aspect of daily life, so if you’ve decided you or a loved one would benefit from extra help, contact our team in Harlow today.
Carers for limited hour visits
You may have found that the night-times are where you struggle; perhaps the hours of darkness keep you awake whilst everyone else is asleep? If you would benefit from extra support overnight, then one of our carers can be with you, just as they would in the day. Whether it’s your medication that needs to be given regularly or you’d just appreciate some company, overnight care is no problem. Your carer will occupy you so that the darkest hours pass quicker and before you know it the sun will have risen again.
Intermittent long-term visits
Respite care traditionally conjures up images of residential settings and having to uproot a loved one from their beloved home, even for a short time. This isn’t your only option though; the Harlow team can organise a respite carer to come into your home for as long as you need, so that you can get a proper break and ensure that you recharge your energy fully.
Carers for immediate situations
When emergencies happen, you need to know that there is help at hand immediately. Emergency care can be arranged by the Harlow team in a matter of hours, whether for an unexpected discharge from hospital, or any other circumstance. It can be a very anxious time for relatives, especially if you live a long way from the person in question, so why not let the Harlow team reduce your stress by arranging for a carer to be with your loved one within hours.
Home carers in Harlow
Branch manager Sarah and all her team share the same goal; to support as many people as possible in the local area to remain as independent as they can in their own homes. All of the Harlow carers are recruited locally and employed directly because Helping Hands is not an agency; we are a company with traditional values that rate all of our employees and customers higher than any other part of the business. The carers undertake rigorous training when they first join us and continue to develop their skills throughout their employment; therefore, you can be confident that our carers are always highly knowledgeable about the aspects of care relevant to you. Additionally, Helping Hands is fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), so you can be assured that the Harlow branch is accredited to the highest standards by England’s health and social care regulating body.
